  1. Wow! So I got a trigger from the movie Anastasia. The Grand Empress Romanov was speaking along these lines about growing older and dealing with memories. I love the way you let the reader into the mind of the person. It is like we can feel it ourselves. Great job!

  2. Beautiful imagery, Heather, and finely spun words . . . There are golden coins down at the bottom of the well called Memory: yours and mine . . . Even if you are determined to seek yourself in hermitry you will find yourself far too illusive to find l l l Each poem you write lets out another secret . . . I love it . . . And blessing

    • Thank you, Peter 🙂 I just wanted to be “the old Barn”…as I hear repetitively, words DO come from somewhere inside of us, at times, without us even realizing, without intention. No, no hermit lifesytle for me ever I pray 😉

  3. That’s a wonderful story that left me somewhat teary-eyed as maybe I could identify a little too closely with the old barn, even my vision with his murky old window. But I loved every word of it. If I may say without offending, I think your talent improves daily now, and the journey is a joy to share.

    • Thank you D!!! We all have a barn in us somewhere…or the fear of one. I am rather anxious about writing now. You just set my bar at a level that I am not sure I can live up to, but if you’ll read, I’ll write. Thank you again for a most honrable comment. I can tell you how much that means to me. Hugs, H.

  4. I turned one day, to see you had grown
    That same day, I saw I had too
    Bittersweet tears,
    Marked the moment
    When I knew moving on, was what you must do

    beautiful poem
