love this one Dave, beautifully expressed and written and so very relevant to me on a personal note right now, the day you posted it especially.that's what good art does though,offers you something in harmony with the artist...i feel this one comes from a different place from many of your other poems and I think, for me,it's one of your best.I've never heard of the nurikabe but they materialised for me that night you posted this, and i'll know them next time I see them..but nothing will stop me searching for that tribe.. thanks for this today,am glad i called by, Deb xx

beautiful words Mr O.P. I don't like to analyse, but just feel...and relate..

"My longing is ancient
It’s a deep ache in my soul
That has nowhere else to go.."

I inhaled your words like deep draughts of lavender...and they stirred my drowsy soul this morning
thank you, Deb

You cheeky so and so Mr Regan, Write Out Loud has no problem keeping up, thank you very much. The very suggestion! We, too, have known about the story for a while but had to clear permissions before issuing the photo. Not sure it is a competition to get the latest breaking news? Judging by the number of comments it has been of interest. after all, as poets, we are all in the habit of baring our souls.
