Dear Joyce who could better describe a Poet’s Life and feelings than a real poet. Great poem, my dear. I have a lot of memories from the time when I was farming. Now I plant only flowers. You are great, I will keep visiting your den as I want to improve my English. Happy New Year, Emile.

The beauty of nature, the destruction of our planet, the birth of a child... everything is different seen through a poet's eyes.

We love words, we look for meaning, we speak to the mind and to the heart and to the senses.

Lovely reminder,

Great poem, very inspiring and descriptive of a poets life. I do enjoy reading your works.

Your inspired insight into the mind and sensibilities of the poet are so true; to use the British saying, "spot on." This write reflects your own abilities to see deeply beneath the surface of what most people observe and opens the door for all who are willing to see into the true magic of what is around us every day. This is truly and outstanding piece of writing, Joyce!

Joyce, we poets must stand for something good because we always tell the truth in our works. You've done so here and I appreciate your candidness. Keep on keeping on! :>)

Nice Joyce ... what a wonderfully positive muse you were touched by on that walk. The repetition of 'ordinary person' creates an effective juxtapose between the enlightened and the mundane.
Blessings and Light ...
