The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter


...for Carson McCullers


Terse language scored to the bone   
with naught leftover, 
truth suffusing every word 
without a shred of platitude.

She faced her ghosts with fortitude,
hope and loss a perfect blending.
Straight to the point she spoke her mind,
no careless gesture or equivocation.

    Each line scores high marks. Such imagery deserves massive applause. Clap clap! Luv, Lizzie

    sigh, there you go again so eloquent, and me left tersely battling the naughty language. But I feel at least I may add... that so far, by my calculations...all ghosts are equal. Blink...with cautious grin.

    What an interesting title on this one, Keith. Makes one think. Did you ever see the movie by this name? One of the best movies I ever saw.
