    Hi Doug,

    Wonderful metehoric write. I had to read it a couple of times before I got the jest of it. Quite an unusual rhyme scheme too. Especidally loved these lines:

    "I didn't know how to pluck my spirit,
    But I found it much easier than I had thought
    For even the clam who labored to bear it
    Had felt the purity of my love, too."

    Very well done. Beautiful rhythmn.

    Aha, I caught you on the act of misdeed! :)

    The idea of defying the 'laws of nature' for love's triumph have somehow appealed to me. I may as well follow your example, Mr. M. Who knows? Haha. {;)

    Seriously, I liked it. Poignant to say the least. The pearl, huh. Nice.

    Your poets heart unfurls itself willingly and lends its words to us to float and drift among our own words. Good work, I enjoyed your poem and look forward to more.
