Coming to Terms

This is my ten-form poetry submission to the first annual ATTYS competition. All ten poems are related to the process of coming to terms with different life situations: a miscarriage, the death of a loved one in the Vietnam war; a political abduction; the ex-pat life; a battered wife; betrayal; Alzheimer's Disease; drought; isolation; a mother/daughter relationship. Thank you for reading my submission. I hope these poems "speak" to you!

I'm sorry every one I'm very immature but as soon as I heard " weeping breasts " I dropped to the ground laughing and I couldn't read any more
This is really good even if this is just a sample of the story it's starting out good
Me encantaria leerlo pero no puedo pasarlo al espaƱol. Alguien me puede decir como se hace
Crooked smiles, accompanied by the apparance of ordinary days is one of my specialities...this is gorgeous!
This was heartbreaking and deeply moving. You truly captured the essence of loss. Beautifully written piece.
excellent use of the form--rhyme rhythm and flow-- all lead to the powerful closing lines.  K
