It's always nice accomplishment when  you nail a poem. I am glad, it was a great poem. Actually your best.

Creative  to be able to express the theme so well within the constraint of the form.

@saphire_rose Thank you very much.  This constrait is very difficult to do and convey meaning (I think it is time to do another one, smile).  I am happy you have read my work and feel free to comment on any of them.  Love, peace and freedom, Olan

@CottonJones I really want to read that work. Because I can't imagine writing an entire novella with no 'e'
                              Such a thing, will take me my entire lifetime and I am 26 now, I don't think I'll complete it even when I'm 62

@SoniyaAhuja Thank you, Soniya.  I would not want to attempt it, 50,000 words.  He had to get around all the "ed" pass tense endings, a very strong challenge in writing a novella.
