Re: Share your poems

Oh yay! Where's a hand-clapping emoticon when you need one? Polymath, I am humbled by your compliment. Thank you. I took my time reading your poem--I enjoy the way you string your words together. Your writing has a certain texture to it that is well-suited to poetry I think. I also enjoyed the unity...

As you wish!

Re: Roll a D6 - just how nerdy are you?
