|I LOVE THIS PIECE!
As most people know, I'm almost strictly a free verse poet because I'm embarassingly ignorant on the types of forms, and the ones I do get take me a ton of work to get what I consider, good flow.
YOU, however, apparently do get it, and get it good (pardon the stinky grammar). I'm not going to list my favorite lines or anything for this one because there are too many things I like about this and I'm most impressed with the poem as a whole.
In particular, one of the things I dislike about alot of form is that often times, you KNOW you are reading something that was written to fit a mold of some type. Poorly written form poems tend to ache from a lack of sophistication. This poem, however, is quite the opposite. Honestly I had to go back every stanza to remind myself of the repeated parts because they fit so nicely in each use that I didn't notice that they were indeed repeated. It is great when repetition does not beat a nice phrase to death and even better when, each time it is used, it remains fresh and creates a slightly different impact.
Great job... I thought this piece was just wonderfully, softly, beautiful.
