Note: the poem is not about Mr. Shalom Freedman (it was simply inspired by some of his poems) . It could be about any poet, it could be about you, or it could very well be about me.....

I have read many poems of Shalom Freedman and I have liked those. His poems resonate in me. It's good that his poems have inspired other poets too to think about life and death and write a few lines. Your idea is good and it has been communicated well.

A very evocative title. It is not surprising that Shalom Freedom's work has inspired these spare, elegant lines. I believe his poems will have life beyond the calendar.A poet could ask for no more than this. Beautiful work, Sonya. Love, SandraX
