Dear Sir Richard Aramis- I am deeply moved by your sonnet. If written personally, I feel an acceptance of what is to be. Though, I do hope that it is not. The inevitable in all of our lives is the same and it cannot be altered. Dearest Sir Richard, my prayers and thoughts are with you. You have given so very much of yourself which is a gift to us all. I know I am a better person knowing you and your flowing and extraordinary sonnets. Take care my friend. God bless.

Richard, I don't know what to say, this is such a beautiful yet sad piece of art. "To linger on in hope whilst still abed", I do hope you are well and your pen keeps flowing for many years. God bless you as my thoughts and prayers remain.

The ink did finally flow and found its destination, to be received with sadness. There'll be much sorting out to do though and little time to do it. But let's say that while this door is slowly closing, another welcoming door will soon open. Cleverly put Richard. Pauline.

Of Sunburnt Noses and Recess -- by Member: Nishu Mathur, India -- added: 3/29/2017 6:09:17 AM

Dwayne Rankin said:



Nishu, such memories are what makes getting older a pleasure. to sit and recall as through you years you fall, All through those memories you climb, going back to that better time of when you were just a child. Those simple times of running free, no worries much you stop to see the world with so much innocence within your so young eyes.
