Michael, I had just an inkling that you might enjoy this one. Thank you, my friend. Your encouragement is a treasure to me.
Butterflies, your "wow" made my day...thank you!
Martie, I thank you, sincerely, for your kind natured words, and for being able to enjoy my sad poems. I am one of your biggest fans, my friend.
Mike, I have awakened in Heaven, and you have deposited me there. How you can write! This is classic verse, my friend, and I thank you humbly for such a gifting.
Eloise, thank you so much for reading and leaving such kind words for me.
Sven, I believe they have medication for that. (Teasing!) Sven, knowing that my words speak to you in some way just really delights me. Thank you, my friend.
Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?......Henry David Thoreau
