I'd be honoured, Letty. Many thanks.
Unfortunately, my knowledge of poetry is limited - but I'd like to contribute what I can and look forward to reading other people's poems.
Just a few days ago no one on earth but me had read this poem - and now it has been read by many. Thanks for that, too. I don't exaggerate when I admit that it took me a while to post it. In the end I had to laugh at myself. I understood why I was hesitating - I was afraid people would declare my writing crap - and it actually means a great deal to me, now that I've discovered it (however limited it might be).
At the same time I wanted to share it with someone. Poetry is something new to me. It came to me at a time when I wasn't feeling too good about myself. It suprised me. Even scared me a little. This poem was strange - how I got to write it I mean. Maybe I'll write about that sometime.
Blimey - I d'narf go on sometimes.
