|I always love your work, my friend. Your writing is so colorful and meaty with emotion, from the heartfelt detente through the inevitable dénoument. This piece really moved me and reminded me of my own poem "Catfish." Hope you are enjoying a joyous season and keeping warm.

|Eclatant...I think that's French for brilliant, Regis,
this of course this is. Especially the closing lines.

|Regis, I like those house slippers.
The Chinese slip into them when they get home, but back home we wandered over the house in our outdoor shoes, even big mucky boots ... we know better now!
May there always be a lady's pantoufles by your door!

|Ahh Regis, this is such a sweet poem "flittering and fluttering" like the teasing of the buterfly who never quite promises to return. Just what I needed on this cold, damp evening.
|Reviewed by Jeffenise Robertson
|Regis this is so sweet. I love how you used pantoufles to share with us how insignificant objects can mean so much. We would never know how significant they are unless we're told, and you said it well.

|Leave me in the pink.
|Reviewed by Elizabeth Russo
|Surely she will return if she leaves behind her pretty pink pantoufles (I love the French word for slippers). "your going leaves me light-headed and aching inside fleetingly lost" is such a poignant stanza and is deeply felt. Always wonderful. ~Hugs and love, Elizabeth

I just love the sound of the word Pantoufles...but, for her to leave these behind, is key, one never leave behind their pantoufles..especially pink ones. Lovely romantic poetry, your heart sings in this one.

|Wonderful, and it creates such a blessed moment with that glance at the slippers. I love good moments like that.
|Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo
|You poem has a nice smooth flow and then toward the end it becomes slightly catchy. That does not ruin the poem's flow as I would have thought, but actually gives it an extra punch; I mean that in a good way. :)
Very nicely written. Has much emotion and great descriptive, vivid imagery throughout. I really enjoyed it!
I was going to ask you why you have a picture of a pair of slippers to go along with the poem but then I noticed on the bottom of the page you let readers know that pantoufles is a French word for slippers, so then it made sense.
Also, you are right on the money when you say "Inamimate objects can be powerfully symbolic..."
Now I am not sure if it is a typo or not but I want to point it out:
"you fly into my self" --> I would think it should say - you fly into myself
Thanks for sharing and please keep on writing.
