  1. Beautiful poem, Bob! Love “You are not death, but its closest friend” among other lines. Much to consider in the spaces between and at the end of lines – where the light gathers.

  2. That’s some [nice & literary] shack you’ve got, Bob! ๐Ÿ™‚ I pictured almost a shed with perhaps broken pots and bits of scrap wood and sawhorses and such. At least, that’s our shack/shed. But it’s too dark and dusty (and freezing) for me to write there. And no window, urgh. At least give me a field of grass to look at.
    . . . Oh, you master of irony and understatement!

    • I must admit that it is a well-appointed shack, complete with air conditioning and heat, with excellent natural lighting and light fixtures on a dimmer. We had it built once I proved to myself that I was indeed serious about writing.
