[for all the grand poets who no longer traverse these fine blue sands of "P.I.P.-land" by the cyber-sea]

           insufficient words
[a farewell for Kathleen ('Kacy') Stafford]

tonight … there is …

a new star dancing through the ‘Milky Way’
a fresh and gentle Spring-whisper in the
    winter wind
a finer harmony in the night bird’s song
a lovely cadence in the timeless march
    of rolling clouds
a pristine elegance in the moon-tipped
    shadows
a firmer passion in Nature’s  plea
a new forbearance in the human heart

… as Kathleen’s spirit passes by.

Thank you JP and Yann !

'Kacy' was a grand-fine human being and possibly the most prolific writer ever on this website.

The others were fine folks & great poets also.

Warm and sensitive writing Bruce. A most honorable tribute to a most honorable woman.

Loving Linny Jean is poetry.

Thank you, "Ari" ...

'Kacy' was quite possibly the single most prolific writer on this website
(both poetry and prose) ... and, I believe, one of the most 'beloved' by
all who knew her.

Thanks so much to each and all of you ... Those folks were all talented poets and grand-fine human beings.

Thank you, Ms. M! ...

There are no words quite adequate
enough to describe Ms. 'Kacy!'
