I am tasked now with writing sufficient words in this space to meet the minimum word count requirement before the tyrant master will allow my words to be seen by you.

My words of praise cannot match the beauty you have captured in your exquisite verse. A true literary gem.

Stay safe

John

Hello RG,

How nice to read one of your poems again!

If there was ever a time for the world to heal, and its people to come together, it is now. Your poem, in its eloquence, with its soft and gentle delivery, gives Man hope for the future.

I love it all, but a few stand-out lines for this reader are:
* Below her, man meandering like lost boats without oars
* She flips and dips a moment in wonder of the task
* She wonders of the future, how bright the chestnut trees
Where the sunset drags its fingers low on new Earth it believes

This is another masterful write, and was a pleasure to read. The Heron as a symbol of hope is perfect. Your accompanying art work complements the vibe of your write ... soft and graceful! I enjoyed the mono-rhyming where presented, as well as your skillful use of assonance.

Great write, RG!

Cheers,
Connie

Oh, Roy, Here I sit here with tears in my eyes as I've just read and re-read your beautiful poem about hope and recognising the past. It's poignant, the imagery is outstanding not to mention its rhythm. Your talent is like no others on this site.
I've missed your poems and here you are again. Please do stay for a while.
I wish I had ten stars, but five will have to suffice. Welcome back. Ulla:)))

I think before I read your notes I got the gist of the poem, you were talking about today's climate. I think there's change coming, but today people have low attention spans and I think the presidential election will push whatever gains have been made to the back of everybody's mind. Very nice job.

Hello RG,
What a wonderful aerial symbol you've chosen of hope and peace, though I often think we project our own hopes upon nature's creatures. We have a heron that lives on our lake, an inspiring image, but also a talented, patient hunter.
But here, you've personified her into a graceful observer, "quintessence of forever, unbridled of the past."
Nature changes little over the years, centuries, and man's change is painfully slow. One would think four hundred years enough, but, alas, how difficult it is move a heart and change a mind.
Marvelous to see (and hear) to see you back, my friend.
Well done.
Robert
