    It is remarkable how a poem will just reach out and put its hand around your throat and make you gasp at its beauty and its truth. (Report) Reply

    There is an uncontrollable drifting, a yearning, an unknowing - all encapsulated in one leaf's wayward journey. The images throughout summon a deep solitude. (Report) Reply
