Hi Don, I read your poem Olfactory Memory, and I like how you have conveyed the persistence of an old lover. It is very realistic, the smell lingering on the pillow is moving and beautiful. With mine, the poem is about the greif of losing the smell and therefore the memory. It was inspired by a short story that I had written, as this is primarily what I am better at doing. I am very new to poetry writing, but I am finding it a great source of comfort and inspiration to write, to read other's mavellous works, more so than my own, I just wonder how I lived lived without it! Thank you for your kind comments, and I shall write more, which hopefully will get better with practise! Lizelah.

Dear Don, Thanks for commenting on my 'Humanity' - I´ve always known that my ears are totally hard for music, but I can feel music is very present in my poems! And you felt it, too! I´ll read your poems, and for now I voted 10 for this one! Congratulations! Sílvia, from Brasil
