Charles B. Neff will soon enter a new set of poems dealing with the lengthy process of recovery from a deeply difficult time of life. Actually, "recovery" is not as good a term as "rebuilding", as the new poems will show.
Poetry has been an important part of rebuilding; and to thank those AD members who have read - and in many cases responded - to Neff's already-posted works, he sent this thank-you.
How are you out there, my friend?
And what are you possibly thinking
As you read what I think and write?
If we met, would we agree on what
The thoughts and the words are saying?
You’re no longer just who you are
But now in part a part of me.
Whatever passes through you
Is the story we’ve become.
