If one is dazzled by a: If one is dazzled by a bombastic, cavalier, boastful daredevil, she would be a tough act to follow, but a meaningful relationship is so much more.   This is an excellent character study and a clever, condensed expression that could stand alone or be continued.     Enjoyed!

A striking, angelic and: A striking, angelic and exalting invitation into the light. I imagined the shackles of darkness falling and Divine hope rising in the last stanza. A message well sent!

You brought the leafy,: You brought the leafy, flowing sanctum and two exiles from the harsh world into soft, but potent, focus. Well done!

So much brews under the: So much brews under the surface of this tranquil, atmospheric and enveloping scene that is felt as much as it is seen through the eyes of a wistful observer.     Even joyless puritans cannot defile the perilously beautiful, immaculately emotive moment on the beach, with details such as oysters, possible pearls on the beach and formal attire, unfettered or discarded, do double duty as powerful symbols.   The delicately smoldering images and the brilliant personification of a sky upstaged by young love was poetry, and storytelling, at its finest.   A magnificent addition to the series.

Now that's commitment to: Now that's commitment to extracting everything precious from life! Playfully and absolutely intimate.

Your title is a poem itself: Your title is a poem itself and your metaphor, appropriately, is a staggeringly far-reaching emblem.   Truly glorious!

As you write your poems, you: As you write your poems, you are working along side the Hubble and Webb outer space telescopes.  But they are mere machines and can neither interpret nor appreciate what they send forth.  You, however, are sentient---one of those consciousnesses that have been chosen for cosmic explication.

The poetic edifice that you: The poetic edifice that you have been constructing, poem by poem, over the years is, I believe, incontrovertible proof that one of the primary functions of the poetic vocation is to participate in, and advance, the process of the Cosmos explaining itself to itself.  You not only speak to humanity on earth, you speak to and for star systems, galaxies, nebulae, rogue comets, and meteor showers.  Two to three thousand years ago, Poets created the myths by which stars and constellations have been named.  Now, the responsibility to explicate what has been named  becomes a new Poetic process and vocation, for which you are eminently qualified.  This is why, in my opinion, it is vitally important that every poem you complete takes its rightful place on the internet (hopefully, postpoems).

Any comment from you is not: Any comment from you is not only a privilege, but a validation.  I thank you for visiting this poem, and for explicating it with your usual shrewd and authoritative remarks.  I apologize for the brevity of this response; but at the moment I am facing a small crisis of sorts.  I did not want to appear ungrateful for the comment.

Thank you so much. This is: Thank you so much. This is actually a poem I wrote in 1981 and it's the first time it has been presented. I have also placed it on my youtube channel. Thx again :)

I have been reading Poetry: I have been reading Poetry since April of 1973.  And in all that time of reading, I cannot remember encountering a poem that compared the Beloved to Poetry.  The whole poem is excellently orchestrated:  the rhyme scheme, the flow of the sense from line to line, and the delicacy of the emotion conveyed---all of it is choreographed, or perfectly balanced like the gears and escapement of a fine clock before the digitial age.  I applaud your accomplishment here.

You were spot on in your: You were spot on in your assessment of my core message, and I couldn't feel more gratified that you not only used your mental laser-pointer to illuminate it, but presented it with overwhelming magnificence. A poet couldn't ask for more, but there was more . . .   After grasping my burning intention for many of my expressions, you defined my overall theme of unity as a "Cosmology". Just where, starbound Poet, do I begin to thank you for seeing and appreciating that?   I'm also thrilled by your very kind reassurance that my processes work. That means more than you can imagine and more than I could, in one lifetime, thank you for.   Peace and Light.
