    tracing my boot tracks
    up hill, down hill, in the snow
    Look! I meet myself.

    OK
    so this can be a platform for our own lyrics?

    Brevity is not always the soul of wit, snow or no snow…

    A place to send our “caught moments”?
    Does Don welcome submissions?

    My friends, this is the poets task,
    his/her dreams to mark, their sense to ask.
    Man’s truest rapture, so I teach,
    In dreams open to my speech.
    All poetic inspiration;
    Is but dream interpetation.
    – Hans Sachs
