    If you have ever read Margaret Atwood's prose, you will know exactly where this comes from.Cat's Eye comes to mind. She knows the pain and wonder of memories. How everything from the past maybe gone but still you persist to see how it has made you.
    Atwood is my favorite author bar none. (Report) Reply

    This poem always makes me thing of the character of Goldie Locks in the 3 Bears story. (Report) Reply
