Not only was this breathtaking and thought provoking and tear jerking and joy filling, this was a reminder of where most of us have been that searched for a long time, and where those we love may still be searching. All vanity. All empty. And you captured the wonder of it is this beautiful masterpiece! BRAVO!!!
Oh, this one is a keeper for sure, the most absolutely beautiful words for the best message of all.

This is an exemplar of poetic language, particularly alliteration and imagery. You're just such a wonderful poet--you are blessed, and you bless us with every poem.
Love…”found in the stillness of surrender...” so poetically put, so beautifully true. When words capture such truth what more can be added? Simply wonderful!

This is exceptional poetry. You have such a way with words and you weave them in such a fascinating tapestry that I'm sure I would need to actually analyze every sentence so I wouldn't miss something. Just awesome. I think I shall have to read more of your stuff. This is top-of-the-list winner for me.

Thank you, too, for taking time to read and leave a comment on my entry. Now I appreciate it even more, knowing it comes from such a delightful writer as you are.

Congratulations Linda. This is another beautiful entry. I especially like your MC's switch from the seeker to the one being found. These lines are so amazing, "I looked in music’s chords of voices calling, in framed brushstrokes hanging mute on willing walls, I looked in laughter’s embrace and in sorrow’s sighs"
--You are an artist!--

This is reminiscent of that beautiful poem "The Hound of Heaven".
