    The different images used are perfect... it shows you think through and don't just write (maybe you do) , but the poem provokes deep thought and is a must re-read. (Report) Reply

    'she left for posterity! '
    behind your highly eloquent philosophical poem back drops you hide her beauty... very smartly!
    you have tremendous imaginative skills, young man! (Report) Reply

    Deeply philosophical - you engage the reader from the outset and lead them through an array of thoughts and images which culminate in those final revealing lines. An impressive piece David...one that demands to be read more than once. j x (Report) Reply

    The world deluge in posterity….the images are pictographic…and the philosophical aspect behind each grabs the reader….nature, life, breath, birth all covered…a serious meditative thought…wonderful composition…. (Report) Reply

    Not a word wasted; the reader is grappling to find the right words to sum up the driving notion behind the piece until you do so yourself in those last three succinct lines. t x (Report) Reply
