      1. I try. Thank you my friend.
        Blessings to you.
        Sending healing energy and good vibes your way. May each moment go from strength to strength. Not every day is perfect when healing (I can relate) but at the very least one completes another wellness milestone each day. Amen!

  1. I counted 28 words all in all and the 4 lines are spot on, well that’s what think. But honestly I can’t tell which 4 are fact and which are metaphorical.
    Maybe you come to tell.

      1. Yes thank you, I just seen it. Glitches is the word. Well I had to reset everything. I had to reset another social platform as well
        Someone got into my account from another device. How do they do that?

  2. What a fascinating poetry form, Suzette, and a wonderful poem. I am glad you provided the explanation of “gnomic”–when I saw the word in the title I thought I was going to have to use a dictionary. πŸ™‚

    1. What a rich perspective Jeff. Yes, there is grandeur that make one speechless in the presence of waterfalls. I understand that feeling very well. I am glad that the poem resonated in this way for you. Thank you for your support. Blessings. Have a great weekend.
