Poem of the day
You Left Me
by Elizabeth Stoddard
You left me, and the anguish passed,
And passed the day, and passed the night-
A blank in which my senses failed;
Then slowly came an inward light.
So plain it reproduced the hours
We lived as one,-the books we read,
Our quiet walks and pleasant talks-
Read complete poem
I wish you all the joy you can wish.
Comments about poetsTimothy N. Welbeck, Esq.: Paul Laurence Dunbar told of how we wore the mask before the virus came.
I remember the mask that “shades our cheeks and hides our eyes...” when I wear this one.
I also wear it to do my part to ensure the well-being of my neighbor.

MKT: For me a day of remembrance is about the deceased, those who rely on us to remember them. It's not about us. It's not about selling things. It's for honoring those who have died.
"The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them." ~ Czeslaw Milosz
Ravi Butalia: .....he kicked the cylinder
of an old can
which for a few seconds rolled its cold emptiness
wobbled for a while and stopped
under a sky studded with stars.

Clifton Lee: I would prefer to be able to say: 'I am satiated,
What is given to taste in this life, I have tasted.'
But I am like someone in a window who draws aside a curtain
To look at a feast he does not comprehend. – Czeslaw Milosz

Saifi Al-Firasah: Repeat after me...
- All religions are not the same
- Monkeys, Mice & Elephants can't be God
- If God requires to worship his d!ck, he can't be God
- Religion which teaches rape, abondoning wife and beheading son for belief is savagery.
- H!nduism is a cult, not even a religion
