after another

Thank you Brian, I'm touched by your words as ever.

Hi Renee, I like your new profile picture.

You are so kind and your comments have a poetic appeal of their own. Thank you.

A well crafted haiku that I can empathise with. It's certainly not an easy moment to capture (see my effort in Blithe Spirit 20:3). I hope that being able to express your loss helps to ease the pain like it has done for me.

Thanks Dave, I'll take a look at 20:3.
Where would we be without poetry?...
