These are the Days
Forks Off the Moment - We are All Unique
Mother of Shrek
Full Soul Ahead
Down River Drivel
Look Me In The Eye

Your poems get me a little misty-eyed here-this one along with its picture is majestic and melancholy at the same time.

You are making beautiful use of your blog.

Ditto from me. It is a beautiful poem, so tranquil but of generous spirit. What a gorgeous post to greet me on my first visit :-)

snoopmurph - thank you so much. I'm really thrilled that I took that picture myself. Just caught him (her?) in the corner of a picture. Glad you liked the One Single Impression post from Sunday. Thanks for the honorable mention in your post.

"To radiate the stillness of a star's distant motion" ... if there's a better line anywhere, I don't know what it could be. This poem is a winner. Thanks for sharing!
