Oh Kit, but what can I say as I type with teary eyes and goose bumped skin. This is absolutely beautiful and I commend you my friend on a piece very well done. Can I have the name of that optomotrist? I think I need new glasses. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this...

Hi Kit, I love this poem, I too have rose colored glasses, and they make everything look a lttle rosier. They really do. But sadly they don't work as well anymore either. Fantastic write here.

Kit,

So many times you have lifted me up with your words.

You have truely captured the heart of what needs to be done to get people through this tragic time.

I live in Australia and was touched so sadly of the events of September 11th.

Love to your kind heart.

Kit,

I hate to admit it, but I think our entire country had been wearing those rose colored glasses. It's such a shame that something so horrendous had to happen to encourage us to tint up the glasses a bit.

I was going back into the archives to read through some of my thoughts a year ago ... and just wanted to say how much I appreciated the comfort I drew from everyone in the aftermath of the tragedy of 911 ....

Fee:  Thank you for the kind words Fee, they are very much appreciated.

Dawn:  Thank you Dawn for understanding and for sharing your thoughts with me.

With much appreciation on this Day of Remembrance, one year later ...
/Kit

Sheesh there are a lot of good ones back here   but where the heck is the one about the forest, I want to show a new member.  He wrote just about the identical theme as you did in yours about over-clearing.

I read between the lines in this one by the way, too bad you didn't know me then.

I'm back - can't find it so can you show this new poet, Penmaster your poem when you get time? LOL http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum100/HTML/002111.html
