|I feel abundant sensitivity in these lines, Kate. Perception, reflection, admission. Marvelous four words: "...where even silence shudders." No wonder there is such reader response to this profound writing. ~~ Diana|

|Striking reflection here on hat anxious waiting that is part of human nature... anxiety and guilt define us, but also motivate our actions. Have we been abandoned by our mothers, missing her warmth in physical and metaphysical ways? Who is this father that we are all waiting for, the soothing embrace of transcendence?
Such a beautiful atmosphere in this poem, Kate, one that evokes the fragility of hope and longing and the fear and excitement of the unknown.

|This could be read as are 'you" missing as you age, lose ourselves with each year moving farther away from what we may stand for or think we stand for , what we wanted to become /became. Luv the last stanza and how true that feeling is when your young and small. What have we lost as adults? I'm taken with the way you presented this Kate!|

|so fluent in translating emotions in each stanza. Fact from fiction. Fiction from fact, both are the transformation to truth in any situation.
Begins with the decimated ruins caused by Henry viii now such vile carnage is accepted as "ooo, must see that lovely ruin, Dolly"
Then the fragile future, The future has always seemed fragile right back to Grecian times.
- tall backs of strangers - such an artfully use of image and words - dark, yet powerful, so very powerful.
Ones mind turns to the missing street children and those that are traffiked violating every human remains of civilisation.
Much of what you first wrote was perhaps trashed just leaving the concise clarity. Of time past, ahead and present, though do we, can we ever leave the present period? xx

|Much said about the apocalyptic view of our times and the plight of children who can no longer play freely in the street without fear of abduction.
As strange as it may seem, and I haven't done any real research on the subject, I believe our children are far safer today from abduction than they ever were in the past when the media did not pounce on every missing child, there was no Internet, and no Amber alert.

|Kate, we all will answer the roll call of, 'The Missing', in due time. The question,"in the fury of the moment when the fears of doubt ring out, who, who will answer?", was the emotion that came immediately into my wondering mind. There is for me a sense of resignation, closure in the emotions wending their way through this beautiful rendering. May love and peace be always with you my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|much more than memorabilia here... a fuselage of recessed recollections not to be forgotten begotten of a blend between what once was and what may yet become suffused by the angst-ridden retina-held diurnal rumba we roil through day by rigorous day... tumult and turmoil, just a foretaste of forever unsung, neither heroic nor altogether banal, but most mordant malaise comes in knowing it's a bit of both worlds... (my own wet feet lap lake water from Spring's nether shores where we all miss you terribly when you're not writing, which is enough to make us cherish what you offer all the more)...|

|As always your poetry involves more than just one reading and the core is what we face in this world where there are no longer any certainties.

|Deeply moving on this Monday morning. I shall go back to my philosophy, Always live in the present moment, let go of the past and don't worry about the future.
However, your "now" spins quite a tale to behold!
Peace love and light,

|Okay. You burnt a memory in my brain that will never go away. Taking the ruins and rotten buildings you made of the past will forever haunt you and cause you much regret. Eventually you are alone, waiting alone waiting for scripture-based hopes for a place with streets paved with gold. And there you are, young and fearless, mother's eyes are trained away from the ones who will take you away from her forever.|

|Deep thought Kate and emotive nuances. Well penned as always.|
