    You have cracked it Jan. This is a wonderful tribute to the Lighthouse. I have enjoyed the rhyming too. I agree with Andrea the last line made great!

    Hi Jan, I like the lonely lighthouse imagery. Almost Ghostly, there is something about a lighthouse I do not like! ((However I enjoyed the creepy surroundings in this one)) I'm wishing you luck in the contest. PS.. Thanks for the sweet comment on my poem. Love Linda
