Poem in Response

Having read “Muted Castle“, by talented poetess, dancer and dear friend Annabel – wherein she speaks to personal experiences of relocation, love and memories of her homeland – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

Through wind and rain
Your words retain
A soothing sound of love

Despite hardship
This distant trip
A godsend from above

        Hey Phil … not to bug ya but to bug you, did you see me on reader today?

        1. Phil Avatar

          Hey Cindy. No, I didn’t see you in the Reader, today. I have you bookmarked in my list, which I check each day. I recall you’ve mentioned an issue with WP in the past…and assume they have been made aware. I hope corrections are made ASAP. Best wishes, dear.
