|Today, I spent hours trying to feed and take care of a little hatchling and once again I felt the fragility of life, its strength, its beauty... Because of this experience, your poem felt like a meditation on life and its value, its splendor. Your poem shines a different color with each reader.

|Synergism seems apparent here as I too felt compelled to write about light this morning, addressing similar phenomena that eludes most some of the time, and remains companion for some most of the time. Beautifully rendered.|

Be well, Kathy

|Let me guess. The evolution of a diamond from the molten source of itts beginning to the watery cutting of its facets to the setting of its splendor on the mark that is the monarchy.

|I keep visualizing some sort of exotic, maybe even a man-devouring plant as I read this.
Phrases such as "in its frail-flesh husk, each unhewn facet," and "Each new-escaping beam renders its face a rose â€“ beauty-blushed, full-open â€“"
I love the excellent wordplay, and I apologize for not being able to completely "get" it. Patrick is probably right, and it is love in some form or other.
