Sitting in Michael's Lap
Denise: Thank you so much, as always. You are a shining star in my night.
Mike: WOW! I think the reply is as beautiful as the poem -- I am flattered!
Marge, Munda, Martie, Meadowmuse (the four "M"s -- LOL) -- thank you so much, all of your poetry has been an inspiration to me.
Bad Boy -- ya never know, I have been known to venture outdoors in the buff too -- see my post "A Memory," in Prose -- LOL
Christopher, leave my bootie outta this! LMAO! (No, seriously, thank you my friend, you know my moods LOL)
Ruth -- 'twas your approval most of all I sought, as 'twas your line inspired the poem -- thank YOU for a fine challenge!
Bal -- TY, I do what I can. YOu're not half bad yourself, for a Floridian!
Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...
--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest
