HI Bill

I enjoyed your short poem. It says a great deal in so few words. Yes, we have all paused for reflection and remembrance. She was a great lady and a resplendent poet.

thanks for sharing.

Ray

This piece sits heavily on my heart today, as I mourn the passing of one of my dearest friend here on FS. Brooke Baldwin, loved dandelions in a way that many others did not. She was my mentor, my teacher and my inspiration. She taught me lessons about writing that benefit me greatly down to this day. I will always love her and I celebrate her memory today and forever.

Brooke would applaud your brevity here...sating the essential and lacing the depth of it in between the lines. Brooke's kindness and poetry will live on in Fanstorian history and hearts.

I thought of writing a three liner very similar in theme and scope, but I don't have time to answer reviews (or do many reviews) just now. I know Brooke knows my heart pays tribute in its own way.

Blessings,
rd

Yes one more person slips by .but she was a glittering star of this site and I have read all the poems she has written.
we have been missing her poems for the last two years.

Excellent tribute to Brooke. She did thoroughly enjoy nature and chief among them dandelions.

A short, but to the point and poignant message.

Gloria

Very short and sweet and subtle. I liked your other one better but this one works well, too. Glad that you could join in those who knew Brooke and add to the memories.

    I couldn?t frame it as well, but it?s the same poem. I would have said more, but her fans will fill the book, I?m certain.

    Ah, you fooled me! Your other title was Into the Wind. Same words and yet it felt different. Lol.

This is another excellent poem that is a fitting tribute to an amazing poet and lady. Although an illness took her away from FS here a few short years ago, she has never been forgotten. I've missed her. At least now she is pain-free and happy. Excellent, Bill. :) Sandra xx

very touching and life is so very short. She will be greatly missed.
very clever use of your words that draws ones in and that takes talent.
The photo goes well with this heartfelt message
It was a pleasure to read you're fine well-penned work.
