    Quite emotional and painful this one is, I feel. Nicely written. Thanks for sharing and I hope you know that I did respond to your mail. Thanks again. And please check, "Thankfully yours". Love and blessings, Caroline.

    Ruben, would you mind if I shared this with a friend who is not a Soup member? I think she's going through the feelings you describe here. Hope you are doing well! Love, Carolyn

    Loved the title and definitely wanted to read this. You did not disappoint. I like when a poet can be passionate with any emotion whether it's happiness, sadness, or of a sensual nature. I love the grasp of holding on that the speaker has in your poem. Can you tell that I liked this?

    Thrilling indeed, I loved it so much. In regard to your comment on "WaterFalls"... the TGV was exiting France not going north or south but going East away from seashores. The events of "WaterFalls" and "UnderRain" due to volcano erupting seebed causing earthquakes... causing tsunamis approaching in the future...artists' smartness of their own era shown in their valued portraits... the treasures of their homelands.

    so poetic.. it's true when you lost a loved one you never had the opportunity to tell how much you love.. beautifully written.

    thanks Ruben! I feel I nail it on occasion, I seem to suffer from "poets melancholy" periodically, the soup helps me keep my head above water....(in my world, I try to be strong, a lot of people count on me)
