    So much can be learned about the poet (poetess) from his or her poetry. You and I have much in common, Sharon. I was born not too many weeks before you were. I love every poem of yours that I have read so far. (Report) Reply

    Have to agree with Rita's comment. Made me feel as if I was secretly getting a glimpse of a place I was not supposed to be. A compelling write! (Report) Reply

    What the eye describes in images - becomes the resulting revelation.
    I feel as though I have intruded on someone else's property and witnessed something that I was not invited to see. So compelling! (Report) Reply
