I've been posting here at PIP for over a year...and suggested my girlfriend come to the site and read some of the marvelous poets here...she did, and happened across this poem...wrote me and said she was...in her own words, Thunderstruck, so, not only am I sending this back to the top, but also am going to post her commentary on your work, this trememdous poem....she said...
Today I was deleting some of the bookmarked files I have, and reread the poem, for perhaps the 20th time, and still felt the same emotions upon reading it the first time. Just loved the simple honest raw emotions expressed from a time long ago.
and so, coyote, if you still pop in and out of PIP from time to time, thought you would enjoy knowing this.
Now, I'm going to make it a point to read more of you...hugs...and thank you...Lee J.
