    Look at that - back-to-back comments posted 26 days apart :D

    Well, it looks like you did some homework on that preposition. Thanks! I hope you only spent a wee bit o' time doing it. Basically, you reinforced the same info I came across. I will simply stick to my initial instinct of using "towards", by leaning on my Canadian/British-English literary upbringing.

    About leaving comments of congratulations - yes, the list was so long, that I ended up using copy/paste in Japanese. It was either that, or simply stop commenting halfway(not even halfway haha!)down the list. Wow! You actually made it all the way through the list!

    NIkko, yours is one of the very best. It has everything, it's interesting and has imagery and the juxtapositioning. Congrats on your win.

    We really need distractions on a night such as this don't we. Thank you for you entry. Without it there may not have been a contest. Is a very good poem as all of them were.
