this. It is also one of my favorite forms. I think I might have used a different word than [bones]. Maybe core, or something indicating the center of the body. All in all, a very thought provoking poem. ~ Gee

This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place

Good to see you. Yeh! good idea I'll work on that. I appreciate your imput.

Thanx Geezer!

Oh sweet sweet the honeyed words
spread out their perfumed air
and touch us all,
and us enthral.

Sweet honeyed words
Spread their perfumes freely
Deep cure

Oh just messing Mand.
I like the thought behind this very much.

Love Ann.

Thanks for reading and commenting.
