Barry, I do miss you terribly as many might feel the same on here. Your presence through your poetry was so enriching. Your love of nature and the world never ceased to amaze me. I never said goodbye to you, couldn't find the right words to say, I know you are at peace now, my friend. You are one of the angels now. Aqua Flower (Rainbow flower now)
