    Boy, I am glad I came to your poetry first tonight. I had no idea Francine had another contest going on, and I better get a move on!! It seems it must be something like "make a dodoitsu using color red?" Cool internal rhyme there! Luv, Andrea

    oh, so i used "alot" in a comment. hahaha. comments don't count. WE can be downright slobs when we comment. heehee. All the typos I make in comments is outrageous because my fingers are literally flying to make them and get to my next read! Have you ever read up on "confusing word pairs" of English. There are so many fun things to notice. How people use except instead of accept. Or lose instead of loose. The list goes on and on. I just love all that kind of stuff! Let me read this poem now!
