    I like the way you give substance to the poem in different forms contrasted with what was seen, heard and imagined.

    It says that notion is an idea or belief that is odd, vague and possibly incorrect based on guesses and or estimates.

    I have always since my coming been a big fan of your work. When I come in to enjoy a read or two it becomes so addicting to read your poetry. You bring out all the five senses. You bring to life your characters in your write like a play. You paint a picture of the scene where at times one can if not careful fall into and will take me all day to climb out. lol This is awesome Dah, and thank you for the climb. Hugz

    I like that you dismissed the notion of death... and instead delayed the emotional bullet and fell asleep, only to awaken and position yourself by the window of other .... for outside of ourselves [or our homes]... is a renewed and slight difference.... Your metaphors are exquisite in this particular poem, illustrating the depths of depression beyond the word ... showing Reader the extensions attatched to the feeling of endless rain, mimicing the heart's wantings... calling all to see our own sorrow, failed wishes and longings [not yet filled]... and I cannot imagine Jesus having lost the chalice or having neglected the seed he once planted within the hearts of those who choose to hear his call to love and believe in that love as the ultimate best of lasting feelings.... and I too question the understanding of "the second coming"... as to it's inner esoteric meaning or language translation...

    I can't imagine Jesus being anything but mythological, and thank you...

    Glorious each and every flowing line. Amazing work of art!

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
