It can be so elusive.


the repetition in this really makes me fall in love with the narrator. she issues directives, but has so many uncertainties. ohhhhh, how that is all of us! sure and unsure. :)

I love the push and tug of the inner dialog in this piece. My how loudly it resonates. Very insecure, very vulnerable, very honest, very human -- very good work here...



'Show up love' is so resonant. Like a song chorus. Your poems are so lyrical Julie.


Like where you took this.

your poem is like a wave, high first, and then as it kisses the sand - still there is so much unrest in the end. Love this Julie.

Woody Allen said 90% of life was showing up. I like the way you've integrated love into the equation via the message in the bottle. Nicely done!


as usuall i find it diffficulties in saying what i feel when reading a poem...I just like to take it in and digest it....and I did with this...thanks Julie
