    Larry, you always wonder about these poems that are never finished, snippets of thoughts jotted down, never given a full life. Doomed to forever wander, dusty pages..well done-

      Thanks, Brenda. In this case, my waking dream was of my posted poems: however articulate they may or may not be, they are doomed to static existence while I have moved on, no longer even capable of writing "that poem" or "this one" ever again. Then, even while I was writing it down, I realized the very poem I was writing would be left in that room, finished in more ways than one.

    Larry, this is awesome.. Makes me wonder about all 'lost' things where do they end up etc.. These poems may be unfinished but they no less worthy of finished poems. If that makes sense. Glad its nominated as I'm all out.

    This is good, really good. Sometimes even finished poems can be lost in time with the memories or things that helped then be written. Well done on a grand poem fella

    So profound! I am in awe. Old poems, like old decisions will make us wonder why and how come...guess we were young by then.
