    As always, beautiful Ben! Your visuals paint such a vivid picture of sadness and longing...I was swept up in your words. Well done-

    Almost speechless with this piece. It tugs at the heart and speaks of memories lost, missed and it made me think of where the departed go, how much they watch over us. How we mourn here on Earth and it seems never ending.

    That imagery just haunts me and this was quite an emotional read. Congrats on the win, seriously.

      Thank you, MA. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Free verse doesn't always come as naturally as rhyme to me but this piece did.

      Take care

    this was an extremely well deserved win my friend, so sentimental it even made the cynical cow that I've become somewhat teary-eyed, and how i do love wisteria, something so whimsical and melancholic about it, it seems to spring a fragrance from heaven itself, an apt bloom for times lost, and yet, a whisper of something new and fresh..
