|An expression of depth here Nordette...the dreamstate can wash away the river of tears and spatterd blood....yet the sunlight still awakens the singing of the morn and the passions that lay there within....very nice...enjoyed...

|The mind is an amazing thing when it awakens us spontaneously like this... doesn't happen to me that often, but can relate to and identify the voice that you use here: the soul has the most haunting and lyrical lilt. And so like the soul to require us to walk barefoot that stony riverbed to weld the marks of stones into the soft arch of our tender instep. Soothing and disturbing in equal measure, Nordette. And Rivers of Babylon-Biblical, perhaps, in its overtones and undercurrents. Beautiful poetry! TY K xx|

|A really marvelous, succinct yet powerful with images, piece of art...Nordette. Just that first line alone knocked me on my backside.
So potent...or should I say 'poet-ent?'
You are certainly a Queen of Scribes!

|I would imagine, Nordette, that strolling down that river-bed one would encounter much more than withered plums.
I am sure one would not have to dig too far to find the corpses of many good intentions enshrouded in fine talent.
I have discovered, in my limited experience on this planet, that everyone has lack in their life, in one form or another.
Far too often, it seems, this lack is the basic human essential love and the ability to communicate to the betterment of both parties.
Methinks that superbia (unreasonable or inordinate self-esteem, personified as one of the deadly sins) plays a substantial role in all those areas desiccated in ones life.
Light and Wisdom ...

|Reminds me of struggling homward on foot on a bitter winter day because you can't afford a car, and colleagues driving past you because they're upset with you.|
