    It has a sad tone to it, but it’s really good. My favorite line: “I believe skinned knees and Disney band-aids will patch my broken heart.”

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, ALLISON!

    What a wonderful V-Day for me to read your Yarn entry!

    Your words are so poignant, splendid, sometimes surreal, vivid.

    As a nanny for a family on that very infamous Lake you speak of when I was a late teen, having met the neighbor’s grandson for a brief encounter, I resonated. Thank You!

    I am, as usual, overwhelmed at what comes through your MIND”S EYE! So
    beautiful, so truthful and so insightful. Your poetry is a “gift” to the world!

    Having just spent eleven days with Mocha, I absolutely agree that she understands! She is an old soul…..just as you are!

    Thank you for the beautiful poetry!

    The imagery in the poem “Distortions” is so lively it paints vivid pictures in my head. The line I can most relate to is “I remember goosebumps
    under the blanket of summer air.” It reminds me of the cold feeling you feel when you first lay under your blanket.
