    This is amazingly strong poetry You like abby do not write often but when you do they are amazing.
    The mood , the questioning flow that like the sea waves roll on one another and the last one that touches your eye on the sand or on the feet of the reader is fantastic.
    This poem has a strong inner rhythm.

    Dear Jane in the spirit of authenticity I do not like compliment or flattery. I try not to do that to others what I do not wish for myself. So if I compliment this is only because the poem really is great. No any other consideration.

      You know, I have not read any of these comments until now, and it makes me so very sad. I wish I saw this sooner.

      Michael, thank you dearly for this and your other comment. To be honest, I am in such a sad, hollow place when I submit poetry, I do not read the comments. It’s too raw. But reading them now, I regret that I waited. Thank you again for your kindness.

    I can only contently sigh after reading this. I know it's been a few months since you've posted a poem, and this truly soothed my soul. The ease and flow of nature, the untold stories of longing. The brevity is so lovely.

    Congrats on the win! :)

    There was somethibg striking about this poem as a whole but for me it was the first few lines that stood out. There really is something haunting about this piece. A thoroughly enjoyable read yet painful too. It's emotional and very raw.

    As you are aware, Jane, I was...ahem...away when this piece deservedly took its position on the front page, but just know that I have read it and appreciated it; it is a wonderful piece of work, truly.

    All the best as ever,

    Ben

    Judging comment:

    An extraordinary love story between two celestial beings. The beauty of love, its yearning and longing, and the pain of its non-reciprocity sum up to form one of the most beautiful love stories I have read here. There's beauty in romance, but there's much more in one-sided love (more than what the eye can see) and this love has been portrayed flawlessly in your poem. Beautiful.
    Congratulations.
