|Fra-ranging love poem! A coast to coast, continent to continent voyage amour.|
|Reviewed by Paddy Bostock
|If only love alone could solve our problems--if only! But politicians and bankers don't see it that way. Where money's to be made, the rest of us can expect the worst. Yes, we should be together, but how many obstacles-sorry about this, but primarily religions-have for so long managed to separate us?
A heartfelt poem, Regis! Hope the girl comes home from the north and brings with her the rain.

|WORLD CONDITIONS THAT EXIST WHILE TWO ARE SEPARATED CARRIES AN ADDITIONAL 'STRAIN' BECAUSE OF THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THEM. AND SO IT IS...THOUGH THE CHAOTIC CONDITIONS OF THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE...THE 'STRAIN' WILL BE ALLEVIATED WHEN THE TWO ARE REUNITED. THE GIST; TWO HEARTS ARE BETTER THAN ONE. THANKS FOR SHARING.

|Wonderful heart felt poem. Raven's are misunderstood; they are not the bad omens they have been made out to be but can be the joker. If a raven has crossed your path, 3 times even better, the raven is bringing magic, shapeshifting and creation into your awareness. BTW thanks for being the great friend that you have been to me....just by being there even when I disapppear for weeks, months and etc.|

|this proves the power of love, for in its arms, no matter whatever else is happening in the world, we are safe and sound.|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|It's strange how we can be extra sensitive to the world's travails when lost in the ardour of passionate love - and yet also immune from its consequences by the power of that same love. You have spoken of such most eloquently and elegantly here, Regis. Thank you for sharing its effects so warmly. May you both continue to be richly blessed. xx|

|...this speaks to the need to strengthen what remains in light of so much destruction and decay, and the tone of an effigy fading in the twilight of tomorrow's sorrow lends the vestigial effulgence of a peaceful legacy that outlasts the relationship rejoinder to close your verse...|

The wistful beauty of the closing lines softens the harshness of life.

|Regis, you found a very provocative and effective way to point out the current woes of the world, and how a private love can tune it all out to the point where there are only two timeless souls and nothing else. Well done. Be well, Kathy|

|Because I can not say it any better than she did I will quote Emily Dickinson with one of my all-time favorite lines:

Is That Love Is All There Is."
Beautiful poem, Reg.

|This gives such a view as it is, how the world stands... ah but to know there is that one that when you hold them in your arms you are together. And among all the chaos the world has, isn't this the most beautiful thing.
Beauty among the chaos, and then you will be one again, how lovely
Love and Light

About the rest of you in-you-face poem, Regis, I with you. Mankind, supposedly more intelligent are killing each other in the most gruesome ways. I love your poem, and especially the last three line.
|Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo
|Wow! What a poem! So meaningful and deep. Thanks for sharing.
When we are together with the one we love things seem to fall into place and it all seems to be the way it should be. Nothing seems wrong or bad because we are together and always have each other no matter what.
Just one thing I noticed... "that a raven calls his dark shadow passes over me" - i would say 'passing over me' instead of 'passes over me'.
