Delightful! Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: February 4, 2013 at 2:26 am Love your insightful comment! 🙂 Reply WabiSabi says: February 4, 2013 at 6:43 am I agree with Gemma! Your use of the word ‘crushing’ made this poem true to Chiyo-ni’, spirit! And so succinctly too! Masterful! Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: February 4, 2013 at 7:33 am Masterful? As opposed to mistressful? Reply JazzBumpa says: February 4, 2013 at 7:39 am Creative destruction. Cheers! JzB Reply Look for A Lovely Thing says: February 4, 2013 at 7:46 am Excellent!
