|Your words capture the root of sorrow. Very well done. Your friend, Kathy|
|Reviewed by Z McClure
|First of all, the photo complimented your poem, and you make sorrow so tangible that my own heart ached as I read this. But that rainbow!
What a potent mood you convey!
|Reviewed by Mildred Kisor
|Regis, thanks for sharing this poem. We all experience sadness and sorrow at some time but your works have a soothing effect. Very good.|

|I started to float...but almost drowned reading the last line!!
|Reviewed by Marie Wadsworth
|This wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting some natural earthy write. This has a sad surrealness that reflects the natural flow of emotions. Intriquing and gripping write.|
|Reviewed by Dawn Anderson
|Regis, I like this a lot. Your last two lines say so very much...because although this is filled with sadness, (which you have written about beautifully), you close with hope...as you wait for the rainbow.|
|Reviewed by Soy Criada

|God knows there's plenty of reasons to be engulfed by sadness, bereavement to name just one.
Tony Bennett sings, Isn't it a Lovely Day. It's a great life! he says. And then qualifies his statement with, Well, think of the alternative... it's a lovely day!

|You captured the essence of the burning heart. The feelings of loss run deep, and are overwhelming.
All the best,

|Your poem carries sorrow, but also hope...like the rainbow...and a promise of a better time to come.
|Reviewed by Kathleen McDonald
|How very true. Sorrow can overtake you and hard to recover.
|Reviewed by Michael Guy
|That's very true; I never would've guessed the content from the title. Too much sorrow is a flood you can't stop. Luckily you're not like that...|
|Reviewed by Micki Peluso
I think I like this the best of them all--so far :) Your meter is much better in this one too and it's simply beautiful.
|Reviewed by Richard Orey

Overflows its banks..."

Very heart rending. Tears flow to decongest the heart, but love is as faithful as the sunrise that comes again...to brighten the mornings.

|I'm throwing you a lifeline, Reg...sandbags and grab on to the hockey stick...I'll pull you to shore and build you a fire to re-warm your heart...rivers bend, rivers dry up, and rivers feed our emotions which are always on the move...Canadian rivers are known to be more chilly on the heart...be well.

|Too sad for words. The river is a perfect metaphor. Must be some consolation to be able to write beautifully, in pain or out.
But then pain could be said to be the mother of creativity. (Not sure who the father is. . .a common laborer?} Thank you for continuing to share your deeply sincere and well-thought-out
and linguistically-gratifying creations, mon ami. Je t'aime! 'Feeleess'

Your Words Reach Into The Dark Depths Of Emotions....Loss Aches To The Very Soul. I Feel A Poetic Reply To The Very Heart of YOU:
In sorrows plight I held your tears;
Releasing yourself with each one shed…
Gathering every piece of you within;
I listened to every word your heart has said...
Speaking into the pain of your broken dreams;
I then took your teardrops into the soul of me...
To show you love & the beauty of tenderness;
I embrace you within the visions of love I see...
Much Love & Happiness To You Always

|Reg, I can't believe this one is your inner feelings, you are always so upbeat and happy, if you are feeling low, babe, just breath in some healing energy coming your way, and by the way Happy B Day!~
My big one is coming up really soon (shhhh don't tell anyone 55 on 9/07
I don't feel a day over 45 lol) Hopefully your birthday hasn't gotten you down, because you look like a spring chicken anyhow.
Here's wishing you peace, love, and lots of healing light,

felt the words as I read them. great imagery and feeling here!
|Reviewed by Lois Christensen
|I too can feel the sorrow with this poem. We cannot always have good days, must take the bad too. Good days will come when the sun shines and the rivers recede from their overflow. Sometimes it is more than we can handle at one time, but expressing it here shows it can come whenver. To all of us indeed. Happy belated birthday too, Did not get a change to wish you on your happy day.|
