An outstanding composition to pay tribute to an earthly "Angel of Grace"
and one of the most shining STARS of the contemporary poetic world.
Thank You Author-Poet Aberjhani for leading the way to beauty, harmony, understanding and friendship.

|Deeply harmonic. A wonderful composition of pure beauty. To my regret, I'm not familiar with Kate Burnside. Does she have a page on Authorsden? It must be worth checking it out.|

|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|What on earth can I say? I don't know how many times I have read this - hard through flooded eyes! - and the generous, deliciously heart-breaking comments below. I truly struggle to take it all in. Absolutely fantastic poetry it is in effusive Big A style - wonderful and bold usage of the ku form, what with the linebreaks - and using all my favourite imagery for certain sure... but dedicated to me and the family of whom you have no knowledge, except this obvious extension of loving embrace and fraternity? Words truly fail me, Aberjhani. Seriously. But if anything you see in me is a mere glimpse, a hint of a reflection of my life's Source, then I am totally blessed beyond belief and humbly grateful. It is more than I can ever have hoped for that I should somehow bear witness to Him in this way. And I have never read such an accurate summation of what is meant by "Grace": the ability to accept and to receive all things as equal in accordance with His will, good and bad, as all can amount to the same thing if we are partakers of His nature and abilities to prevail. And although I feel like a weeping Jeremiah a lot of the time, good old Ezekiel is one of my main men cos he foresaw the increasings of the healing streams of living water flowing from the Source to renew life in the deserts of the soul. Amen indeed, and may it be so for each one of us. Bless you for renewing me in this way, and to all those, too, who share something of what you feel. I have honestly never felt so loved and appreciated in any other sphere of my life as I do here, at AuthorsDen... and especially on this page right now... And do you know what??... I had U2s "Grace" going round in my head all day yesterday, too! :)) And darlin Sage knows my cookin just too well... but I'd still love to have you all come sup at my table!! Love, peace, blessings and grace be ever present in your heart and in your home, Aberjhani. Thank you for bestowing me with such high honour... I am 5 feet and half an inch no longer... :)) LOL Kate xx|

I concur with the consensus of opinion below completely..
You are a gifted poet, and the redoubtable Kate Burnside and her family will be in awe of this demonstrative tribute..
Five stars to you !
|Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater
|Kate Burnside has her angelic feathers sharpened on the whetstone and she takes us on flight with her poems of many, poems that fly up and catch the golden sun like powdered gold, poems that take us to the zenith of moonscape, and she could have just as well in another lifetime, served us communal bread and watery stews of onion and meat in a clay terrine and let us drink the sacramental wine from the healing amphora. She is an Angel of Grace. Thank you, Aberjhani, for bringing Kate and her family to light...

|This is so beautiful, exquisite even, Aberjhani. And you could not have blessed a more special lady than our Queen Kate. She has carried her trials and burdens with all the grace and dignity her regal title demands, exploding from her center the brightest light of Spirit. She is truly a gifted poet and beautiful human being. I know that Kate will appreciate your kindness and her family will be further blessed. ~~Nordette|
