unwanted waifs and
abandoned words rest in the
arms of acceptance
they learn the meaning of love
they blossom under her care

|The picture, Cryssa, is really just a wide-eyed, big-lashed ogress blinking. You see that light behind her eyes? I love it.
I'll have to say, Karla, that this is my favorite of your tribute poems, because (and I don't mean to offend anyone here) she's my favorite gal in the den. (named Cryssa), and I love her like she was my own flesh-and blood! (which she is)... "She's a darling, she's a demon, she's a girl... but how do you solve a problem like [Cryssa}?" If you're wise, you make her sleep out in the hall.
Good photo and write, Karla. You're a wonderful gal to do this for so many of us. Write back at ya! --Charlie
