I was totally drawn into this masterfully written
diamond of a poem that has still been shining,I do not think that it matters where the poem dwells,how many people read it,or have read it,
how many people commented on it,if they like or dislike.There are a lot of poems that have been
written by Lord Tennyson,Chaucer,Poe,and the list goes on and on,that have never been read.
Pieces of poetry are snowflakes that cover the mountain of time.Sincerely,Eric
There are some things about the writers'/poets' community that I will never understand. Eleven member reads is all, in all this time. Well, I hadn't read it either. Still, that's not the point. Not the point at all. In all this time only 1 comment.
Many years, many reads, but only the one comment to offer that it was being read, had been read. I know, it's nigh impossible to read everything by everyone, but it occurs that without some kind of commentary, how is a smith to know if his trade (and skill and talent) is properly being applied?
Even if a writer writes primarily for him/herself, or even exclusively for him/herself, how is the value of his/her work to be gauged? If that were so, then the writer could just spend all day at the typewriter or keyboard and not be troubled with the opinions--good or bad--of his peers.
Your work is unique--as I'd like to think that everyone's is. Your work is difficult to interpret; that is, it may not have an obvious meaning jump right out. And very often, more often than not, as a matter of my fact, you will weave and intertwine so many different threads into your tapestries, that it's sometimes difficult to follow one weaving from beginning to end.
Still, even if that were all that a reader received from your works--this once included--I would have thought that their voice(s) would have been heard. Apparently not.
So, here we sit, four years later, without my having personal benefit and experience of the events of those years, but still ranting on and on. I apologize.
I liked this work also. It's powerful, dynamic, filled with imagery and emotional impacts that are second to none. Your use of the language has a master's touch and I'm fortunate to have been able to read your works.

I'm more intrigued with every poem of yours I read. Your style is unique and your thoughts often profound.
...I know the cost of being me... I like that.
