Thank you for saying that.  I: Thank you for saying that.  I have only been there once---at the end of May, 1971, with a school group, for an overnight.  I am not sure if I saw the same monument you refer to, but my classmates found one with the names of people who had fought (and, I presume, had been killed) during the War of 1812; and my last name appeared on that brass plaquem, one of the multitude of distant relatives.  The island was a delightful place, and I presume it is pretty much the same as when I was there a half century ago.  Thanks again for the comment.

saiom commented on: Beyond the Gates of Orion by patriciajj 18 hours 45 min ago
reaction:   I wrote before of a pond at night reflecting the moon but 'mirror of stars' is much more beautiful and succinct and 'the yes in your lover's eyes' is also a lovely eternal phrase

I'm truly sorry to hear about: I'm truly sorry to hear about your ordeal. Thank God the crisis was avoided. I'm impressed you can write so well even in great pain. I can't even write a shopping list when I'm in physical distress. Hope you're feeling better today.

Thank you very much for those: Thank you very much for those words.  I almost ended up in the ER last night (due to the usual cause), but some quick thinking intervention at home avoided that dreadful prospect.  Writing today's poems took my mind off of the events of last night, and the pain that accompanied them.
