The stink of roses
around the mail box holding
my divorce decree.

dancing butterflies--
my journey forgotten

Diridoni's poem, such tendernesses in those silent pauses called white space on the page, in the shared journey after journey. Then come those stinky roses, decay. Fine editing, a pearl of great worth. Thank you, Don. ~ Donna

H. Edgar has a terrific attitude ...
a sense of humour

we've been happily divorced now
for 27 years

I predict another happily divorced couple

my x and I now best friends

nice set of pieces today

a smile AND a tear combined
.... the "stuff" of poetry/art !

& the plots here going forward
along several different paths...

and w/out judgement, anger or desire.... neat. Thanks

Thanks, Ed, for the close look.

Yes, Conrad, the non-journey as journey. Thanks. Don
