Thank all of you for your flags and stars. I hope you will take the time to reply with your thoughts and perspectives. As an old man and young writer
I would value your input. Thanks again and peace to all.
Beautiful prose of unconditional love, so often unheard in today's world, these words of higher realm,
Only the response feels incapable of reaching such heights, of yearning this connection.
But the being is here, escaping no bounds of common decency,
Through these fleeting moments pass great wraths of knowledge,
Heard only in dreams, but forever retold.
Ha ha! The bitter, bitter irony!
I flagged you because I loved the poem, it conjured up a sense of Boo Radley, John Irvine - that very particular American style of writing - which I
happen to love, I should add.
Your poem about not crossing the boundary to come in and say hello should really have opened the floodgates for people to well, come in and say
I'm still wondering why I didn't and whether that's about me or the poem. I needed an extra invitation to come in. Hmm. Let me think some more
about this, but still it was a superb poem - fully sensory, right down to the sun on my face..

You are always welcome to come to my door! I post in a number of places but it seems here on ATS that I receive the most response. I have been on a
search for some time to find like minded people who desire to connect at deeper levels than what we normally experience in "normal day-to-day
activities. Thank you for your very kind words and your willingness to respond to my invitation. Peace to you my gracious friend.

As a kid, I knew all my neighbors and people would wave at each other. Nowadays people ignore one another, too busy with their personal lives to get
to know the people you live and work around. If I sit next to someone I don't know, I'll always smile or say hello (unless they give off bad vibes)
and tend to get strange looks.
You expressed the message beautifully in your words.
