Gary, i like that room covered with blue clouds but nowhere else in the poem do you work with images or figures of speech. Maybe stop writing for a while and immerse yourself insome good contemporary poetry by Billy Collins and Charles Simic? If you have time, check out my new website: jeffersoncarterverse.com Let me know how you like it. Thanks! Yrs, JC.
