Oh, how beautiful! You are truly a poet, and that is not an easy thing to be. You are the owner of the very words you use, and by owning them you are their master and they will fallow every movement of your fingertips. These words will bend under your writing streanght and become what you want them to be. In your hands, words will come alive. You are a true poet. Thank you for sharing. All my best Agnes
