  1. I love this one so much. I keep reading it over and over. I love how it all flows into the next stanza. That one stanza, are you trying to fall; I could go running in another direction with it.

  2. I’ve read this over and over, first trying to see where the magic lies, how it works. Then, simply falling, willing to fall into the magic, surrender, over and over. Lovely, GS.

  3. I like the rhythm – like an incantation – in the 2nd to 4th stanzas. Is there a reason the eyelids ARE closed? What do you make of “eyelids closed” or even “eyelids close”? The active voice is keener in most cases.

  4. wonderful imagery you have put out here. I love the last one the most. As a race, we all need to surrender to her instead of trying to fight her for every breath. She will care for us if we let her.
