Time is so often cruel, it's twisted intentions are never revealed to those that dream, wonder, and wish... Many will identify with these remembrances that linger like the fragrance from dying rose petals...Tender and touching..Sam

You were as busy as the 82nd annual acadamy awards ceremonies, and it was a wonderful sun day. And imagine my joy, to have found three new poems, like a triangle, you put them there, and I read them, "one word at a time", so beautiful... but when I looked again, they were air. sigh ... so I did concentrate on this poem you left, .......... dangling like a participle ..... It's so very obvious that your love is as great as the legends you create, tethered by your hand, dutifully controlled, mercilessly pleasurating, so that by poem's end, you -become- your legends.

this seemed like a lump in the throat stuck in a persons sorrow for a lost love I loved it as all your poems

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
