Jamie this is astounding! Wonderful and imaginitive vocabulary, depth and style to this work, I love it! Cookie in your jar for this unique and refreshing write, too many fav lines I'm afraid ... just loved it all, sincerely, Artemis xx
I don't think your Muse has left, my friend. Not with the lines you write in this poem. I feel like a broken record, but another great job! I'd like MY Muse to meet YOUR muse..maybe something would rub off!
If your muse had gone awol, Jamie, it could wander in here. I enjoyed the rolling lines and sustained complex rhyme scheme. As it's appropriate to many of us, I would have guessed your last word to be "sleep" *grins. H x
