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!
