Daver... this stops me, and feels like a prayer poem, makes me conscious of breath. I love it. Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my poems. I needed some positive feedback. I've been feeling insecure lately... that would never stop me from writing. The act of writing has saved me over and over... but I haven't shared with others that much and this soup we're all simmering in is a nourishing community for me. Peace... P.S. do you still haver your submarine book?

I just reread "Last Thought" and printed it out for my refrigerator door. I hope you can feel my hand touching yours. Thanks for "Cat Call" comments. I'm not a Cat anymore, but, no regrets... Love, love

Daver, lovely. May we be blessed in this way. I just got something on the subject which I will send, but not here. Thanks for comments on OH Kay. I didn't know when I started to write the poem, that the sweet baby brother I almost raised, more son than sibling, would play a cameo. It is so fascinating what the poem decides to say.

This is beautiful Daver, I love this and I am faving it. Thank you for your kind comments on "Invisible" as you can probably tell, I have learned that lesson too the hard way, many times, which is where that little poem came from. Blessings to you and have a great day my friend. Love, Amy

Daver, it would be wonderful if we all died with love in our hearts. It's a great way to end earthly life before entering heaven. Beautiful haiku! Love, Carolyn
