|"The walls of earth are littered
With the ruins of fallen stars..."
My god, Lonny... it feels slightly ridiculous to post a quote from this entirely quotable work! Those lines are poetic magic, 'tis true... this whole piece is.
I cannot, in solemn truth, remember being pleasantly punched in the gut by a poem... I'm keeping it... it will remind me that great works of art are worth striving for. Not one word here is enough... you'd have to slip into my head to know how magnificent I think this is. Sigh... Damn great, I'd say! katy xox

|Londis, you have me weeping, not only from your disturbing, disributing piece, but, because, you've nailed it, all of It.
I once asked a wise man if he thought fiction was real, he replied all that is thought is reality...
What you write of is memories, previous realities, previous we's...
Do you think Mankind will be happy with his 'rocket ride'? Once he/she starts its journey?
Adam Duritz comforts me with his voice as I contemplate 'coming closer' to God.

|Nordette, thanks so much for your comment and most of all for all the help. I would not have gotten this far without your help. I never know if the computer problems I have are from the machine itself or the nut on the keyboard, but it usually proves out to be the latter. LOL. If I can keep things running smoothly, I will definitely do more recitation...I have poems justmaching to be read aloud. hugs. Thanks to all my other supporters also I love and appreciate all of you.|

|Londis, your recitation is excellent. So moving. You must do more of these. You have a wonderful voice and compelling reading style. The poem is beautiful too. I see you've taken down "Pretty Past-Time." I'm glad you've got everything working now!
