  1. I love the line, “tears splash enticing life” — that really touches me somehow. If I may borrow it for a future poem, I would give you full proper credit and link 🙂 Unless you’d prefer I not “borrow”–you can tell me, I’ll respect your wishes.

    1. R.l.,
      (Hope you don’t mind me calling you R.L.). Of course you can use it, with, as you said, “Giving me full credit”, and if I am still around I would love to read the poem. Go for it!


      1. Yes, please do call me RL 🙂 Thank you for your permission….but what do you mean, “if you’re still around”–are you going away? I hope not–we need you here 🙂 Thanks again–I’ll work on a poem when I get a spare moment from all the April prompts!!

          1. Oh my goodness, I had no idea! Nor did I realize you’re 73–I will turn 65 in September, and my health is mercurial, so I understand that we have no guarantees of tomorrow. I will work on the poem for you soon 🙂 Take good care of you–and I’ll keep you and your lovely wife in my prayers.
