    Your love for Nature shines in this. I am with everyone on this. A superb poem deserving of being read over again. I am adding to my faves list. "On the high ground, out of the river's reach." SuZ

    Caleb, this is superb writing! I am so glad I stumbled across this poem today, because I just read about 40 poems that I couldn't even get myself to leave an honest comment with(politely, that is). The tone here reads to me like a hybridization of purple prose and free verse....in exactly one of the ways in which I really like it to be(just my opinion). Why resort to mnemonic rhymes when you can write such introspective, flowing imagery such as this. I am very impressed.

    Thanks for your comments today. You have a very good memory. Wish I could tell you all about Eduardo. not the love of my life, but a very interesting person in my youth. Nobody I talked to from Madrid could tell me what ever happened to him! glad not many people died in that one flood.

    I don't agree with Richard. It seems to me that you know exactly where you want to be, and how you want to be. Honestly, I was misty-eyed. You're a mighty fine writer, Arkansas boy. Jack

    A beautifully penned poem yet I hope there will be much more for your immortal spirit. I hope that whoever searches for you does not find you in a grave on a hill regardless of how beautiful it is.

    It's very rare when I read something that I feel so personally involved in. You take the sadness of death and completely turn it around into appreciation for life. The beauty of nature, and being apart of it. I especially liked the part about stars looking for... going to my favorites! This is one of your absolute best!

    Great poetic quality..Enjoyed reading this one today..It is so descriptive that I could just see and hear the scene and stream..Thanks for your visit..Sara

    This is one of those poems that I can just immerse myself in-- with the images, thoughts and words used. In a word: Awesome, as in full of awe. This is a beauty right here Caleb. Bravo for this... I know I will be reading this again (one of those poems) -- definitely a fave for me, and you too, a fave. It's the booger poem that clinched it (kidding!)--seriously, you got some serious talent, Caleb!

    btw, thanks what you said about my first haiku. I know I must have other silly poems here at Soup to use for PD's contest. I have switched my first haiku for another one in PD's contest of worst poems. now how will YOU find a worst poem? Oh, yes, you will use the booger poem that I actually got a big kick out of.

    I had to dig really deep for it, Andrea.....and cue the symbol....pun intended.

    Caleb, this is the kind of poetry that Soup should be featuring the most here!! It's amazing, simply amazing. FAVE.

    Caleb....this is hauntingly beautiful. You've captured such depth with such beauty. My favorite lines? Honestly...hard to choose two, but I'd have to say: It can speak to you, in the somber and silent voice of the forgotten. Absolutely beautiful poetry. The ending is two lines...wow! What a finish. I applaud you, my dear. You've done superbly well. :)
