Suicide


an evil damns the stream 
a stagnancy so deadly,
life cannot not run
its natural course.

    Dear Kathy... wonderful play on words and use of metaphors... I hope that is all that it is and not an expression of something else... You know, Kathy, you have (I suppose) 2 Irish surnames... and you've certainly heard about 'smiling Irish eyes'... I hope... Love Terry

    Hi Kathryn, here's wishing you hope that you will find the beavers busy at work behind the scene, you told suicide true, but please some hope.
