    134 comments! ! ! ! well, i guess all of your responses are counted also. but STILL OVER 60! ! ! i mean poem comments, not YOU!

    I am a frugal tear-user. i'm saving them for when i REALLY need them, .............like in case ice cream is declared an illegal substance; i 'hate' breaking the law!

    Water is truly amazing, but tears outdo their 'mother substance' manifold.
    A wonderful haiku about this most special drop.

    Kelly, a wonderful poem. It mirrors to some extent my thoughts about the Mind. I have just penned: The Uncaring Universe. Does it care about memory loss? (Report) Reply
