This work has reached the exceptional level
How love reading from you. It is with clinical beauty I never get tired of reading. Maybe an ellipsis here or there, and I might change 'our life to our lives dear Ronni...

Having said that, I cannot fault this, for here is so much beauty within, such art and such confidence; like a ballerina on ice.
Bravo.
Good to read from you again.
Have a great day Ronni.
My best wishes.
RG

    PS If I have missed one of your writes recently, my sincerest
    apologies, I have been in and out quite a bit getting my
    sister in CA; settled into a Assisted Living Facility due to her
    ongoing heart issues. Hope to catch up with yours soon.
    THANK YOU TOO, FOR THE EXTRA STAR...sincerely appreciated.

It was good to see your name pop up, and to be reminded that I wear hats everyday, but none as elegant as yours! Thanks for reaching out "to glow within us" with this free verse! Big smiles- Joan

    Hi Joan!
    Ah dear Joan, when it comes to hats, it is the wearer that determines
    what kind of hat suits her personally or socially. Elegant ones are
    not always suitable for all occasions or reasons, even mine which
    you have so generously complimented on. Likewise, this is the
    first I am aware of you wearing hats....just now. Delightfully
    surprising indeed, and I hope you have enjoyed wearing yours
    for whatever reason or occasion. Just wish could see it; but
    nonetheless, for sure hats are the best 'rescue' for a bad hair
    day...LOL... my rescue quite often. Other times, hat depends
    on attire or occasion, fewest for 'elegant' times I assure you.
    Thanks too for your appreciation of this poem too, &
    for peeking in to share it. Hats & Hugs & smiles, Ronni

    It started with a bad hair day and then became my signature! More hats and hugs- Joan

reply by the author on 01-Nov-2020
    Good for you! Keep it up and
    just enjoy! Happy for you for
    your very own signature!

Oh, Ronni -- I've always found it so amazing that certain people come into our lives for a moment or an hour by His intervention.... and it could simply be for a smile when we need it, but your offering here is so 'spot on' here, my lady!! It truly resonates with the believing heart! ;) Thanx for sharing this evening! ;) Yvette

for brief moment --> [did you mean...?} for a brief moment

Lovely poem overall. I love the simplicity of the language. Eloquent and easy to understand. It would help to enhance the beauty of this poem by using vibrant imagery and literary devices as a mode of describing some of your lines. Great piece of writing overall!

Through the inclusion of vividly descriptive, specific details, you have conveyed a moving message about the power of others in our lives, even those who just crossed our path briefly long ago. And, yes, God does place others in our paths.

Hello beautiful lady. Long time since we've touched base, eh? I absolutely love this poem and am so sorry I have no six stars left to give you. I hope all is well with you and yours. It is hard to believe what the world has turned in to in jst the past year or so.

I liked these lines in the poem best:

"as guided by God, why, when, where, how
and when they should cross our paths through
His Love; attuned, aligned ever sacredly within us"

Bless you dear friend. Bob

This poem resonates with me deeply. My "touchstone" has been touched and moved by someone in my life whom I didn't even know five months ago. I have been searching for answers to the big questions in life and she, bless her heart, has been spending hours positively affecting me in a way neither one of us could have predicted.
The flow of this piece is good, and the choice of words speaks volumes as to how one never knows when our hearts will open up and embrace new ideas and concepts through the patient understanding of another. I especially like the part of the line which talks about how we can be helped to "grow, heal, learn or redeem" by "multiple blessings that never end or fade away..." I've still got a lot to learn, and a long, hard journey to deal with, and doubts to overcome but, she has inspired me and my muse and I will be forever grateful. I enjoyed reading and pondering your post. Thank you for sharing.
Take care,
Jesse

    Hi Jesse,
    So pleased this poem was especially relatable and meaningful to
    you! And for your newly found 'touchstone' lady in your life!
    So true it is, we never know what lies ahead, we tend to think
    so limitedly about ourselves or our fortunes and wondrous
    happenings or events that so often change and alter the
    course of our lives, for far better than we could ever imagine.
    Wish you the best, and glad so much good is happening in]
    your life now. Keep on keeping on with it, God Bless always,
    Ronni



reply by Jesse James Doty on 02-Nov-2020
    Hello Ronni.
    Thank you for touching my life the way my lady friend has...in an inspiring and positive manner. Yes, we spend too much time seeing our lives in a limited fashion. I believe that if I can imagine it, it can be a possibility. Thank you for your encouragement. I am so glad I 'fanned' you and caught your post. Have a wonderful upcoming week and month.
    Take care,
    Jesse
