Oh my Victoria. This one is stunning. I love poems that have a message in a few words.
Wow, Victoria, amazing poem, the circle of life.
I did not know this.
Oh wow lovely job! Powerful statement
Wonderful. So much in so few words. I love it. :-)
I don't picture the smells of both being the same....actually I would hope not.
So powerful - love it. :)
Thank you all for your warm comments. Mary, I was at a salt marsh on Saturday when the poem came to me and my sense was that the marsh is a cradle of life - hatchings and births as well as death - circle of life. I saw the smell as being characteristic of both.
