Great work indeed. I love poetry nearly as much as i love writing full-fledged stories. There's just some things in stories you can't express as better than what can be written in a poem.
You write extremely well. And (hopefully, im not being to rude in saying this, but).
In your thread 'Blessing of the Written Word', the one what i posted ('An Ending Serenade'), it was about my friend, and me, losing someone very close to us. She was dear to me, and i wrote that in memory of her.
And i found that, in posting it, and sharing it with other people, it helped considerably well, in helping me getting through that hard time. Because it made me acknowlege that i can still see her, and talk to her, even though i can't see her physical appearence, it still helps.
(Just some helpful advice. I dont know if that will help, but it did help me, and hopefully, it can work for you.
........ Again, i'm sorry if i was rude in saying that )
Great work once again, JM12. And i hope you post a reply from Carth
