Please read this beautiful, beautiful poem, "Leaving" on my friend Ano's blog.
Notice the imagery in her words--A period at the end of a lane: the last house in the row. Easter egg memories. Silverfish feasting on old books. Scouring scars with tears. Pictures - frozen memories - thawing.
The image at the end of the poem is so moving.
I am doing my best to stop gushing about this piece of writing. Long may your brilliant ink flow, Ano.
