  1. Bonnie ,this is a gorgeous poem. I LOVE EVERY WORD OF IT, THE SOPHISTICATED ASPECT, AND THE WARM PRESENCE.
    WITH LOVE.

  2. There’s enchantment in these lines Bonnie – the sound of them first, but then the playfulness of the images and ideas. I’ve read several times and I’m about to do so again!

    1. Dear John, Thank you for giving this poem such a thorough reading. I’m glad that you found that it held up over time. I hope that sometime you’ll choose to join us here at IPM, I’m sure that my followers would enjoy reading your work as well.

  3. I love this:
    we slide together like/ beautiful, young bookends/nothing in the space between us/ that needs reading
    Oh, Bonnie! It’s beautiful! What a wonderful poem! Bien fait!
