To those who read my poems and stories and actually digest what they read...thank you. My poems and stories are to show acceptance, love, and understanding. They are sometimes not written in metre, time, or rhyme. They don't have to be to get the message across. If you are so die hard about form and correct style according to Keats, Yeats, Browning and the rest of that era, then my writings are not for you. Barbara.
