Thanks Paul... and good point! I think the more abstract and unusual outlook is a sign of a healthy mind, and a potential for good poetry.

Many thanks, Upma. Yes, I noticed your absence, but I too have not been very active due to other priorities! Hope all is well. Take care:) // paul

Still enjoyed the second time around :) Happy for your high-placed win. Your interpretation of the picture is very abstract, because you don't actually mention any of the objects in it. I like the way you think.

Thank you, Timothy...you mention just the perfect words that I wished to hear! To me the picture is but a means to reach out for something else, otherwise we'll all be writing about the waves and whatever! You'll make a good judge! // paul

...back again to thank you for the lovely feedback on this poem...very much appreciated, Cherl:) // paul

Dear Paul Love the picture you put with this poem, it's just wonderful my friend. Sorry I've been so neglectful of the soup lately, but my husband has had some medical problems. He just was put on retirement, for them and he's had a hard time learning to adjust. I'm been working on my books also so between that and etc. I've just had little time for anything else, thank you for reading my coach I feel the same way, and think these wonderful people deserve more of a thanks, I love this poem,

No problem with not visiting/commenting, Cherl...first things first, and there is not much that can come before family! I hope that things are now much better. These last 2 weeks I've had little free time on my hands; added to that I have been visiting friends in hospital and attending funerals! ~ Glad you enjoyed this poem. ~ Warm regards // paul
