Shall I or shan’t I
In depression overcoat,
all is blue with me
shall I turn back on stepping
stones of yesteryear.Wait
I will reflect,just for a moment
nothing matter,in this silence
quietness stirs,light through
darkness spills a verdant
sylvan light.How green my
memories Ah I live again

Listen to me read this poem on youtube under name ichthyschiro

    Two things, One this spoke to me on a very real and personal level, and 2, I've been taking a risk and, figuratively, kidnapping dear friends and bringing them to places I have loved, events that moved me in some way. 3) I have a place I would like to "show" you in a sonnet-- it is a place of faith, so I thought best to ask you, lest I offend in some way .. it is a Jesuit retreat, a day of silence, gardens, woods, quiet spots to reflect,

    and ... I had a day of silence there... lol... oh, Brian, I have a terrible time with silence (chuckle away!) but I sense that for you, it comes easier. Can I show you MY green memories? To understand more, stop by any of my soup friend sonnets
