to another

his death--
still the magnolia blooms

my stars--

I like the understatement of Susan Constable's poem. It reminds me of Vincent (Starry, Starry Night).

Beautifully done.

The drawing you have with Susan's is so very perfect.... and Gloria's leaves me in a place I've been where there are no stars...

Lynd Ward has been a longtime favorite of mine and serendipity, a librarian's favorite form of search, lead me there ...

Ha! You have caught me out, as is said. Glad you liked it ...

Just back from Illinois where the Venus/Jupiter view even better than Western PA ...

Ah, Don, my ancient home precinct.

By Jove, back then everybody was always straining to get a privileged glimpse of Venus. But the shades were always down. Chaster days!
