|this is like observing the metamorphosis of a beautiful nightflower somehow... that straining towards love and maturity through painful love and neglect.. the eventual blooming "alone" and unobserved. Beautiful, emotion-laden writing, Rafika. The images are lovely. May you and yours be blessed this Christmastime; have a very safe and happy holiday. xx|

|Very nice, Rafika. Excellent mechanics and structure: just the right 'write'. The sentiment is not lost on me, either, as the image of frozen planetary peripheries swarm into my mind, attended by images of a dying star...frozen star-dust, now turned to scattered icy crystals on a dessicated cosmic sarcophagus. Um.
Aloha mai e, Kalikiano

|There is deep stirring, longing and agony in this most precious poem!
Surely you have created a masterpiece!

|Is it possible to recover from loss? A right question to ask, Rafika, but a difficult one to answer and we have to surmise it depends on individual circumstance and personal character.
This takes me into a world I think and feel I understand, I may be wrong, but wrong or right, this work strikes a deep chord.
