      Thank you, Andrea. Not an easy topic to write about, and I wasn't sure it would work in a sonnet.

    If this wasn't nominated I'd have done it, truly a remarkable write for many reason and I think the form did it justice (although I've never written a sonnet before so take that as it comes)

    All the best old bean.

    Ben, Ben, Ben...

    What can I say? Your poems always rope in my emotions... and leave me either in tears or smiles... or just feeling completely awe-struck.

    Just like what everyone else has said...this is a truly remarkable piece and beautifully written.

    Amazing job, as always!

    A well constructed poem and for me the best of the poems submitted this week. This form of poetry seems to be one of your strengths and this poem is another fine example. It flows well and conjures strong imagery. If I do have a criticism it’s with the rhyme in a couple of places. “watermarks and stark, and close and growth, but that didn’t distract me too much. Well done.
