        Thanks, manatita! Yes, I've found that most poetry is open to interpretation. I like that as much as the ones that don't need much interpretation. Thanks again.

        Awesome!

        Open to interpretation, of course, but for me not necessary. It is a beautiful piece of poetry that speaks volumes in a positive Light.

        Thanks, Nell. It's how my creative process often works. Whether I share what I write or not remains to be seen. LOL. Probably true because so many can relate.

        Thanks, Jodah. Believe it or not, this particular poem did not start out that way. I came across it last night in some papers I had filed away. I write things down quite often and don't always finish them right away. So although a short poem like this often does flow rather easily for me from start to finish, this one was taken from another longer one that I no longer liked or cared to finish. I kept the good lines and added a few to wrap it up. Haha. ;) I truly don't feel like it is one of my better ones.

        I've thought about instagram for some of the shorter ones, but I don't use it all that often. Maybe I'll give it a try sometime soon.

        Shannon, you are the expert at saying a lot in so few words. Your poems would be perfect on somewhere like Instagram. Love the Rascal Flats song too.
