    Congratulations Deborah, on your Honorable Mention in The Rambling Poet’s “Home” Mini-Poetry contest with these entertaining, warm words. (I had a beautiful lemon tree full of blooms in the house that I raised my children.) I came home and the tree was stripped...lemons in the streets and everywhere... I can envision your poem. Your talent has placed you in the winners circle. Smiles, Dane Ann

    I liked this. It took me back. Our neighborhood consisted of Lithuanians, Polish, Irish, Italians, Germans, Dutch, Czechoslovakians, Yugoslavians, Greeks, Puerot Ricans, and a few others. One thing we had in common was we all spoke English. We were neighbors. We cared about each other. We should have built mor bridges but as we got more affluent, we built fences. Great write, wonderful days. Vince

    Your imagery is awesome in this, Deb. It sounds like a wonderful and place to be on an August afternoon! Well done, my friend! Love, Robin

    This was so well described and the imagery classic! The little imaginary world created in a childs mind offset by the surrounding suburban cul-de-sac setting...intertwing the neighborhood melting pot was also very well versed! Nicely done! Much love, Steve
