Unknowable

The unique contours of your thinking I’ll never perceive. This, my most heartfelt loss, is my great reprieve. 16 Jan 20 Arbitrium Divisa 6 Contest - Gregory R Barden An extract from the original poem “To my son, on his birthday”

I remember your heartfelt ode to your son - and I like the mystery of this stand-alone, since it could be to anyone!

Ah how lovely that you remember it! Yes, that’s why those four lines struck me. You could read a lot of different things into them, and find your own meaning. :-)

Beautiful Nina. This has a hint of sadness but the beauty of your thoughts masks that feeling somewhat. Best wishes in the contest
