  12. Sometimes at night there is a feeling, almost indiscernible, relating to those who have walked the streets before me. I like to think that lovers who touched hands once always will. This is FAB, Patti!

  17. Lovely, deeply romantic poem. Found you at Viv in Paris.

    FYI, you are safe at blogger from the "comments to email boxes" problem, but if you want to post how I helped Viv and about 200 other Wordpress bloggers how to get rid of that troublesome box entirely, here is the link. Please credit me with the fix, because it took me HOURS to figure it out! Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore

  19. Stretching into a new venue is good for us all. I like your poetry. I like your prose. I like risks. Especially successful ones. This reminds me of stuff I have studied :). Nicely done! The second line is my favorite. Shades of lovers... YES!!!
