I have enjoyed the reading of "Atmospheric Decline". A poetic feast.
I salute You, Poet.

|Excellent work, Janet. I so know this. Many of the small towns all around Atlanta have been swallowed up by sprawl. I'm with Kate on the incredible power of that last stanza. Great work. Dawn|

|Fantastic, Janet... in fact, I think the final stanza is such a strong construct and image that it could carry the whole weight alone... it is so singularly visual and compact... but that's just me! :)) Sounds like small town Britain in the 1980's... but - hey!! the green shoots are comin and what is in decline in your commentary here is starting to happen at long last... so don't give up! And TOTALLY love your new biog pic... so very you!! Wish I could get into me old cowboy boots again... but not quite the culture for it in the here and now... perhaps I need to come visit!! LOLOL Kate xx|

|I too ponder the changes Janet. We know change is good for progress, but what about when it's more like regress? Great poem on the topic.
A lot more to come...

|There are still some quaint old towns, personable, small, people that love and respect one another.
Julian California is one.
You can walk the whole length and back in twenty minutes.
I agree, though, with the sentiment of your construct. Too much is changing, and not for the better!

|Yep. The "good old days" are never to return, and they were good old days, no matter what some naysayers might say.|

|this sounds like what happened to my home town in alabama, the highway just happened to go a little too far away and the down has died|
