    How you have captured the rising of life within us, the desire to escape our bounds, like the rising dough. And the garden, bursting to grow expresses it again. Love this poem. Linda (Report) Reply

    Oh Linda, you have captured what we do as young mothers, or as women with a home to tend and others making demands on our life. What a lovely image.
