Loved everything about it, as you already know. Don't let this be your magnum opus. Let it be the stage for it.

An ABSOLUTELY breathtaking look at autism. It is a gift to know your child will never yell "I hate you" about something he never got.

I am 23 years old and do not have children however I can understand the values of the things you mention here. I am floored actually, by the uncanny way you've explained your unique perspective. Not very many writers can convey the message as clearly as you have.

I loved this.

Many people gloss over the 2:30 feeding as simply "I've been there." What I like about your sonnet is that it's not glossed over. It's in the moment, and as a reader, I can place myself in the moment with you. Almost as if a zoom lens camera'd scene in a blockbuster drama, but as intimately as if i'd been a ghost or if I were male, your husband, watching. It's powerful and I love everything about it.

Review of Of Tree and Music  
Review by Student
Rated: E | (4.0)
There's a phrase that I'll work into one of my pieces, before I add it here, and it's a scene between four characters.

"We've lost him." one character would say, while the other would reply "We never had him." watching the man in question, consume a woman with his eyes.

Your poem brings that thought to my mind, because it's exactly the feeling I get. A man seeing something, wanting it, taking it, to only discover that it was never really his to begin with.

We do that with many things in life, I think. Caging birds because of their beautiful colors, but in the end destroying them because they weren't meant to be caged.

I enjoyed this very much. I look forward to more of your work.

Perfect. You did justice to your passion by writing this. One can only hope to do half as well.
