I really like the pun in your title, and I applaud your Shakespearian sonnet!


Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.

Thanks kindly. Most

Thanks kindly. Most appreciative as this was a tad awkward and clumsy.

Awkward and clumsy?  I

Awkward and clumsy?  I disagree.  It may have seemed so in the writing, but the result, and the effect of reading it, is far different.  This poem reads like a glimpse of the stream of consciousness---which, in my opinion, is more difficult than the usual approach (I cannot imagine how James Joyce wrote, and wrote so well, Molly's great soliloquy at the end of Ulysses).  The awkward and clumsy that you may have felt while writing it do not cross over into the reading of it.  


Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.

I am so grateful for your

I am so grateful for your kind words that are seasoned with grace. Yes, the feelings that have arisen from the past process may leave an indelible mark and here we see a great benefit, privilege and honour of commenting and interacting after each read and considered thought. It's not a mere tipping the hat salutation but a fellowship of thought and community of awareness. This is where cross overs and bleed throughs are something to be missed and revelled in. James Joyce, yes, an apt and aid-ful reference Thank you again.
