Thank you so much! The southern states are absolutely breath taking and it's people sometimes live a extremely hard life, but there is beauty in all, I tried to give a glimpse of a whole other world that not a lot of people have experienced.
Another new member I chose to highlight this week.
Brenda broke my heart with this poem and yet her creative and very unique and simplistic style left me speechless. The visuals within this poem brought me to a funeral I went to years ago... heals sinking into soil on a rainy day... oh I tell you-- this poem was just wonderful!!
Andrea-again, thank you so much! This write was inspired by a true story of an Aunt who had passed. Such a unique and beautiful world down there. Thank you again, you have no idea what your comments mean to me.
Living in southeastern Ohio as I do, very near the West Virginia and Kentucky borders, I was able to grasp the full impact this piece was composed to create, Brenda.
There is a lot to be said about small town country life. But, it also has its drawbacks, just like anywhere else.
Thank you so much! I too grew up in a small town in northern Michigan. Up north, down south they are pretty similar. I totally agree with it's pluses and drawbacks. I'm really glad you liked it-take care-Brenda

Fairly long piece but you do not know how easy it reads, and get disappointed when it ends. Lovely flow and great grip on language.
