When Priscilla Passed

Rating: 5.0

stood in the doorway to the dining room.

I got all choked up reading this poem. I've had some somewhat similar experiences. In my near-death experience poem SOUL'S JOURNEY PARTS I - V, I write about them. Please read to have a better understanding. In all sincerity, Grace I wish for your outstanding poem to be chosen as POD!
