Thank you Michael for your advice! I posted the poem and got 4 positive comments already! I'm very surprised. But pleasantly.

Thank you for your guidance and encouragement, Miken, I will go for it! However, I do not expect many replies, if any. Maybe negative ones saying it is too graphic! Well, we'll see.

Well, it would not be fair for me to guide your poetry. I find that from the original draft, rework on word and structure happens . go for it ...see what response you get. Miken

Hi, Michael, Strange it brought to your mind coffins floating down the street! My original thoughts were just that! The last line read, "Bodies by a box." meaning the bodies had floated down to the houses and were found by their mail box.My title was, "Mail Delivery" I thought the poem was too graphic, so I changed it. What do you think? should I post the original or was I correct in thinking it was too graphic Should I post my original thoughts. I value your input.

You know the saying. "ashes to ashes, dust to dust," But when the Lord returns, all the dead in Christ will have a new address, with celestial bodies. Thanks, Maurice.
