Eternal Breath

I’m fortunate in that there have not been too many I held dear who passed away. I knew folks from my youth already grey back then, including some who were my kin, who all moved on -good women and good men - as well as kids I’d known back in the day who died too young, and to the world’s dismay, bright stars have died that we’ll not see again! But I had no connection very strong to any of those souls except for one, whose destiny was an untimely death. How sweet and wise my brother was! I long to be with him again. I know he’s won his rest, where he now draws eternal breath. Written 10/27/13 by Andrea Dietrich for the Eternal Breath Contest of Gail Angel Doyle

    I sent my Night of the Pumpkin Eater to PFT as well as to the soup. PFT has the right layout. I only mention this because PFT also has the layout problem. Layouts are important to me. A poet's layouts should not be changed without the poet's permission. Haven't you had the problem too? Love, daver

    Reads like a winner to me..It is sad when we lose someone that close to us at a young age..I know that you have good memories of him now..Thanks for the visit to my page..You presence is uplifting..Sara
