Many moons ago
And many moons to suffer
Yet but an eye-blink
Moistening the opened eye
That is ever unblinking

Which is good to hear. Your comment was for some reason treated by WordPress as “trash” (Horrid word!) I discovered it there today in one of my periodical tidies. 🙂
Lately about twenty people have said that WP has been ‘trashing’ notifications and messages. I hope that stops soon! I’m glad you got it in the end! Thank you my friend for your beautiful work.
And thank *you* for your encouraging words.
I swim in time. Time swims in me. Inside the moonlight all is silver and shining, even the dark.
We each swim through time
Spewing words like light and dark
But what do we build?
Illusions and delusions
Glad to have encountered you
A gem – elegant, perfect – I love this!
Then I shall dedicate it to you, Betty. A gem? Elegant? Perfect? Sounds just about right. 🙂
🙂 Though far from deserving, I’m most honored. Thank you! (Looking for my polishing cloth…..)
