    To smile and to frown and I think I LIKE the smiles the best. Good luck in the contest. So behind with everything and cleaned out our storage shed today and have a truck load for the dump. No more save anything it is out if I have not used it in the last year. love phyl

    Boy! I sure rode this rollercoaster with you on this one. I smiled and then I frowned. Mother nature has her way when ever she decides to. But man has never, no not one, right to. Good luck on the contest. I think you nailed it.

    I know that feeling too Andrea - the more strongly I believe, and reflect love, the less power malovolence has over me, and I can keep that smile wide and true - thanks for having a great heart! J.A.B. %

    Nice one, sincere and straight-to-the-heart. Thanks Andrea for your lovely comment on my poem. And to answer your question, I'm a Nigerian. A true son of the soil.
