I finally got by to look for your Senryu dedication to Prince! It was not hard to find. What a difficult task to sum up how it felt the day he died! Great job. I bet there are a few others we've missed. I wish, when someone dies, they'd run a separate Wall to post dedications. Then it would be EZ to find Bowie poems and so on!. You did a lovely job in short order. Yeah!

You often find many poems written when someone passes - it was only through reading poems here did I learn the sad news as it had only just hit the press in the Uk:-( hugs Jan xx

I will admit I didn't cry....but the tears sure did try....to fall all down my face....because his music took my art to a place....where it would be perfected with care....in such a way that they would be so easy to share....with you, with him, with her....his music is a TRUE reason my writings did occur....short but still Beautiful for him jan.....;)

Afraid to say I've never been very familiar with Prince's music, but he obviously moved a lot of people (my aunt was especially a huge fan) ... sad senryu, but a great tribute ... even doves are crying :(

Thanks Timothy - I think the final line is so apt - I wasn't a massive fan but did enjoy his music especially when he first started out:-( hugs Jan xx

I'm so far removed from any kind of contemporary music, when I heard the Prince had died, I thought it was Prince Harry! Thanks for stopping by, Jan. / M
