Thank you very much.  I: Thank you very much.  I appreciate your comment very much.  I think the poem exists in order to present that last line, and those words came right out of nowhere while I was looking for a way to conclude it.  Thanks for the validation; and thanks for commenting during this difficult time.

Thank you.  I agree that the: Thank you.  I agree that the difference between a flower and a weed is often a judgement; but is it, also, an aesthetic judgement.  And yes, real weeds do have to struggle against adversity.  But literary weeds are, possibly, something else altogether.

crypticbard commented on: FOR ONE MAYBE BEYOND THIS REALM by Stephen 5 days 19 hours ago
Reluctant acceptance is: Reluctant acceptance is acceptance, of course minus the bravado and intensity. Just like going gently into that good night. And yet whether we go quietly or kicking and screaming, off we go beyond this realm. Perhaps all insanity is equal on either side of the membrane that separates parallel realities. But that is just a conjecture on my part.

Pizza Hut: It's different now from the 1950's, where you can get an oil change in 10 minutes and onion rings in the same block.

patriciajj commented on: Now That You Are Infinite by patriciajj 5 days 22 hours ago
I'm overjoyed and honored that: I'm overjoyed and honored that you completely comprehended my strategy and used the words "lively" and "celebrates" to describe my perspective. I was also elated by your evaluation of the last word, which I actually second-guessed momentarily, but your theological prowess assured me that it was the only word possible.   Thank you also for your profound and mood-altering contemplation on time, and I completely agree with you that erroneous platitudes are vapid and worthless to a grieving heart.   Always an honor. And again, thank you!!!

"like a leaning into: "like a leaning into love."   I adore the elegance, the perfection, of that phrase and the slow build up of the encounter. Often what's in the mind is more powerful than what's on the page. The reader just . . . knows. And that settles it. Beautifully.   Your high poetic IQ combined with an authentic, tender and honest connection between two very different yet very similar people makes this art of great importance.
