    1. Thanks for taking the trouble to read and work it out. I’ve been told in the past it’s painful. 🙂

      1. That’s what makes it so much fun. It’s like a poem, or another verse, within the poem 🙂

        1. That’s a lovely way to describe it. Thank you. How I had meant it to be 🙂

  3. I love it! To me, teasing through the structure is part of the discovery process for the reader. The more one thinks about the word choice and placement of the words….the more one comes to understand what the work truly means to him/her. Yes?

      1. Oh! SOOOO weird! For some reason WP blocked me out of commenting yesterday. Bummer because I’m SO far behind in blogland (re visiting people!!!) and had much art to do! It took many rounds of talking with techies….computer reboots…..doing a zillion things to my own browser, our wifi, etc. until about 9 hours later a techie had me comment on a test page and discovered it went right to spam. Then I had to be turned over to another department who had me fill out another test form! 🤣 God. Finally rectified. No one knew why in the world I’d been blocked out and targeted as spam. I think, and suggested from the get-go that it was perhaps because I’d copied and pasted part of a comment that was sent to me into the google translator as I don’t speak Portuguese. So maybe the WP machines thought I was pirating someone’s material. But WP said that wasn’t likely it. Well, one girl at the end said it might have been. So…don’t do that!!! And if You ever get blocked out for some crazy reason, save Yourself about 9 hours and lots of futile tasks and get the first techie You deal with to please shoot You a test page!!! 😄

        1. Thanks for the advice, Katy. What a nuisance. WP does really weird things sometimes.
