|Another encouraging poem. Why should I grieve when things are like this. The butterfly is spirit and truth and I am so glad I opened this poem and caught that darling butterfly and photo. My thing and Tom's sister's thing is butterflies. A little brown monarch comes and sits on Tom's sister's grandson's shoulder each spring, and we think it is the spirit of Ruth Anne's son coming to land on his son and let him know he is always there. Kent died of Lou Gehring's disease when 42 and left twins, a daughter and son and wife behind. It is sad, but writes like these help me understand why certain things in life happen. Beauty is with us all the time. Thanks.|

|Grasping poem. Overall, wonderful imagery and very moving. Maybe rethink the last line or the use of the word beauty so close together. But, it is a wonderful poem. :)
|Reviewed by Anne Brooks
|Wow! Really touching poem.She seems unique and wiser than some.
You seem to contrast the perception of the dullness of reality with her own fantasic microcosm that she has created within her.
She goes beyond ..and finds the essential beauty of things.Anne Pawlak.

|To be able to see beauty and hope and love and treasures where the rest of us see the opposite is a gift that is never quite appreciated by the callus ones. But that's okay, she would say they just don't understand. Nice words.|

|Loved the picture and the poem was just as lovely!|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|"Mirajolie" - beautiful name for a beautiful and grace-filled, charismatic persona; what a gift she is and what gifts she imparts. Just goes to show the influence - even in subliminal ways - that one life can have, and what an impact she has on improving the environment she lives in!! This is truly inspirational - in both its message and its appreciation. And the most beautiful thing is the lack of self-awareness - either in this lady, presumably, and in the way you write to portray her: makes for even more brilliance! As Kenny says, this is reverential without being cloying: does the name mean "Pretty Face" or "Seeing Pretty" - or that type of thing? Probably both, because one probably produces the other! Of course, this whole "person"-thing could be a metaphor for Beauty in itself - in which case you fellas are not excluded either! In fact, mentioning no names of course, some of you just oooooze with it!! :)) I ramble, I'm sorry... LOL and TY Kate xx|
