I am in Poet's Country now, no doubt about that. This was simply lovely with every emotion touched lightly upon, and the main emotion of just plain missing her being poured out unashamedly. So this is how it feels at the top, I say to myself, and make myself a new promise! Am gaining not only an appreciation for the poetic, but for the written word as well. I feel like I have walked into a brand new dimension. Suffice it to say, the pleasure was all mine today. GoodHearted Woman

    Wow... what nice comments to read this evening, Marcia! Thank you so much for all the nice words and for digging so far back in my portfolio. How did you ever find this old post? Well... no matter, I'm just so glad you did. But mostly, I'm glad you enjoyed the read. Hugs, MM

I really liked this one very much. Sometimes it must be enjoyable to just write a story and not care much about the ryhme.

I sure am eager to see you again, sweetheart! YOFV is still bugging you for some affection!! Maybe it will come in time. I sure hope so! Over the weekend, I dreamt about Drytown and you were in my dreams! YOFV NREVE 14344

I love the imagery in your words, Adonna,
painting a picture of their own -- a
beautifully written poem. Thoroughly
enjoyable.

Congratulations on your win, my friend.

While I agree that this is a beautifully written piece, I am either wrong in my consideration of this as prose-poetry or I misread the contest guidelines. IM not very familiar with "free-verse" "law" but I didn't think this would qualify as such...i May very well be wrong. Either way its a great work.

    Thank you so much for reading this rather long piece, and for your thoughtful questions. To answer as best I know how, I would refer you to my response to Connie C's review. There are different kinds of free verse and I believe it is something different from prose poetry, which includes a combination of actual prose writing and a haiku, I think. I'm sure there are others on here who could give you a better definition. But I hope I've been a little helpful. I so much appreciate your candid comments and questions.
    Like you, I'm trying to learn. This is a great place to find answers. ;"). MM

Dear Poet! (and I use that term with the deepest respect) I found this to be one of the most touching and honorable tributes to a lost love that I've ever read. It defines brilliantly what is meant by "fron the heart". I'm sure your dear Anna has shared this from her new perspective where all she can see and feel now is pure love! Blessings and deepest compassion to you! HIS GRAYNESS: Vance

MissMerri,

I can certainly see how this poem captured 1st Place in the contest. I'm practically wiping tears from my eyes after reading it. Abound with vivid descriptions, you have created so many images that CONNECT with the reader. A wonderful story you have told here.

Congrats on your win ..... so deserved! Very well written.

    Connie, many thanks for this truly generous rating and many kind words about the poem, "My Girl." If you felt some of the emotion that was in the poet's heart, as it was written, then perhaps that is a sign of success. I'm very grateful for the thoughts you shared. Thanks again. MM

Absolutely beautifully written. The pictures drawn through your poetry/prose merge with heartfelt emotions of loss seamlessly, while simultaneously drawing the human-animal connection into the fold to create a, "fullness of presence", if that makes any sense. From the hot coffee in hand, to the wintery scene, to the mare, to your heart's memory, and to a very human way of coping (a very physical gallop for man and horse in the cold air)speaks of honest, raw, pain for a great loss with an acceptance of its reality.
