    A heartfelt write Eileen, the visual is very effective, the falling and under. You know we can only spread ourselves so far, when these feelings begin, it's time to look carefully at how much we're taking on. There's always the danger we start to be being taken for granted. Take care, Richard

    I always admire when poets take that extra step to be that much more creative. The format makes it more of an art form and make people that don't like poetry all that well, a little bit more of a fan. Having too much love for people is a strange problem to have (Rose's comment was quite funny)... I enjoyed this one.

    Sweet Ghali, my falafeil Pali, your too beautiful a woman to be trampled on, grow a few thorns my dear, that will keep the fear of God in them, grow and be blessed, my flower of the hour, xxx
