when they begrudge you and call you a curse
with sly smiles and subtle words

what right have the shadows to prevent you?

my love will be an axe      a scythe            a flame

and you will dry your tears in the sun...

Thanks Ray. My schedule is a bit of a juggling act lately. But, it's good to hear from a familiar voice.

I'm always up for hearing interpretation, but surely allowing a glimpse into the personal can't be a crime.

Fabulous gem , subtle and meaningful Rachel. I won't try to be clever in the analysis, as you have revealed such s personal comment.

Hi Jason,

I was writing this and was reminded of a song I used sing to my son when he was an infant...

He used to look up at me with darling sleepy eyes--so peaceful and sweet.

I knew without a doubt from the day I set eyes on him that love shows its truest forms in ways Hallmark will never be deep enough to express

Thanks-- glad it moved you to respond )
