Your symbolism in this free verse is outstanding. This is an awesome poem. I love it.

This was good. The first stanza was irresistible, and the following imagery did not disappoint.
You deftly probe this haunting, daunting concern.

I love the metaphor of the first line -- and the entire poem.
WOW! what an awesome entry.

Great, concrete way to illustrate memory. And this is very well written, but . . . the ending seems hopeless. The dining situation reminds me a little of The Last Supper. I'm not real sharp when it comes to poetry, but is there a connection? I would love to see one worked in.
I don't know a lot about different styles of peotry. But, I do know that I really liked this poem. Great writing!

LauraAnne, I missed this lovely poem with an extended metaphor the first time around, but I'm so glad I found it now! I plan to feature it for the Front Page Showcase for the week of November 17. Look for it on the FaithWriters Home page, and congratulations!

Laura Anne -- I was trying to pick out a favorite part, but every word choice is so perfect. Your ending is so emotional. Beautiful writing. Congrats on being the FW Front Page Showcase author!
