    Erm, wow ... the whole thing paints such a vivid picture that I can smell the autumn evening, but this line alone is just brilliant...

    There is something cold in this, although you have pointed some sources of warmth. Maybe because of nostalgia? The entire poem feels like a nostalgic moment.

    It’s good to read something new from you :)

    Thank you Brenda for nominating this piece of Art, I would have wanted the privilege to do so, but at least it's done.

    Your writings are always a fresh breath of air, seriously this poem is just above the ceiling. I can't find words to comment on what you have painted in my head. This is just stunning.

    An ode to nostalgia, indeed! Going to come back a few more times and read this, something so yearning and heartbreaking in remembering here.
