A Tree Like Me

Will they remember?
Distant clouds were close friends once,
Playing shadow games.

Excellent work on both levels, James -- like the thought of clouds "playing shadow games," but also the remembrance of friends who drift away, much like clouds, but cast lasting shadows on our lives. Love, Carolyn

I remember reading your last poem before I took my 2 weeks break, and thinking then how deeply elevated your thoughts had become ... your poetry is at another level now ... and this confirms it. One love
