Thank you. I hope you will return tomorrow and read its inverse when it posts. This sequence of (thus far) 12 has been very interesting and enjoyable to write. You are most welcome back any time.
Also, I should offer up the following which subject matter may be more to you liking–or at the least a treatment in sonnet form with some commonality to the freeverse on your site I have thus far read : )
I’m a lover of words in all forms. Thank you. I look forward to reading. X
You seem quite enthusiastic in your literary pursuits, it seems to me. I hope I do not disappoint, as even my least tame work is I think quite tame by your standards?!
I write of all things, as they are all part of my makeup.
I shall look forward to reading more of them : ) Please do not hesitate to send me a link or two. I enjoy very much a writer directing me to such things as he wishes me to read–or she, as in your case : )
Too kind. Thank you. X

I hope you will enjoy them.
