This my friend, is what poetry is about!
I read this. Then I read it again and again until I had it memorized. I realize it's a short piece, but somehow you managed to pack the power of an entire civilization's written word into it!
This piece, so true, so welcome, has left a mark on me to be sure. No offense to anyone else, or to any of your other poetry... but this has taken over the spot of my all-time favorite "Passion Poem!"
Awesome my friend, your gift shines through in these words.
