Very poignant poem, Paul. It really has a lot of impact on me personally. I am writing a poem about one of my brothers who came in out of the cold, and wouldn't you know it, I've named the poem, "Prodigal Son." Congrats on a job well done, my friend. Love always.

Thank you Freddie. I am looking forward to reading your "Prodigal Son" especially since it is based on real life. // Sorry about the late reply. I am trying to get back into the groove after being laid down by a bad cold and sinus. In fact I have not been active on Soup for several days. Getting a cold on top of another has not helped at all! Regards // paul
