Julie this is heartbreaking and so well written
I love Puerta Vallarta what a beautiful place!


It is a nice feeling, isn't it, when you look at a poem you wrote and find you like it! I like your poem too. You worked well with the prompt, and, as Pamela said, it IS heartbreaking.

You conjured Emily Dickinson for me. I saw her/you in black patent heels and a bow. Poignant, breathtaking--you made me gasp. Thank you for sharing this deep piece.


Julie, this seemingly light poem, with its images of costumed trick or treating children, dives deeply into your heart with the "tiny, flower-sprayed casket." The heart of a woman, a mother is so opened for the reader, the inner sanctum, showing one side and another, leading to a surprise ending in a resort town of vacation happiness, the mere name breathes of romance. Yet your poem once again startles with its story. Exquisitely written, revealing the Heart, and its pain of the past that haunts now and then.


Black patent heels walking is a strong image Julie, that said a lot. The last three lines are 'wow'.


I loved all the places this poem took me. I have really enjoyed Puerto Vallarta. I am sad about the baby.

Great, atmospheric piece, full of haunting images.


Such a poignant piece, Julie, with beautiful words.


lovely work
