to you and everyone else as well!

. like my lost dreams...the flood

A poetic unit of three lines can get your eyes glued, mind and thought to read aloud and try to unveil the entire body of a poem.

Tercet or triplet is fancy, apt and very understandable.

"Poetic license
the poets
the free will to
embroider a good tale
and deviate from the established rules of language"~Jackweb

This short poems are my favourite genre! Have a nice year!

on the tercet! It gives the whole meaning to the poem! ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Thank you! Have a nice year!

I keep wanting to read about a pause before the clock resumes. Don't know Why but you might play around with working in a pause and see if you like it better.

The halt and the restart of the clocks on New Year’s Eve have been a kind of childhood memory or dream to me, as my grandmother used to tell it to me when she fed me hot milk. Have a nice year!
