|Wow, this is a great visual masterpiece. So many stray thoughts come to mind. Not all are related but it seems to focus on family.

|"4 ku" said in a Scottish accent brings a whole new meaning.
The first one hits home.
Two and three do not need to be, if wiser and controlled, egoless leaders who cared about life and not popularity, were in power.
What message does it sent the world when a "leader" moves in to his residence and the first thing he does is remove a bust of Churchill then blame his anti british stance on his great grandfather being brought over from africa. . .
Whoops sorry. The last one, i love the sound of church bells bringing the faithful together where all shapes and sizes sit and pray as one, together. Equals. the sound of the bells say all men are equal. In my indoctrinated, rose tinted view.
Great to see you writing on here, Miss America!

|I don't like ku, but love the ones penned by you. So much compassion, so much care.
The title of my second novel with a different meaning.

|I love the compactness of the 'ku form and the way you have presented the silence that surrounds these people. Nice.|

|Reviewed by Sherry Heim
|The world does have the feeling of every man/woman/child for themselves, these days. There seems to be some strange kind of isolation that we all are finding a sort of peace within. Shattered dreams are the special of the day. You really bring out all the emotion and meatiness of the situation. Love these and love reading you again.

|Such deep emotional turmoil expressed in just a few lines...well done.

|Isolated, marginalized, the individual ranks low in our world schemes and (misguided?) ambitions and agendas...strong, pithy, relevant work.

|Like the feeling of being a hostage of circumstance, trapped in a war of unspoken words, bell beckons, distant tear, so close and yet so far. Alone indeed. Welcome back.|
