    Finally a moment to look at poems-the swallow, the healing silence. What tough times immigrants, or maybe just those a generation or two before us have had. I especially like that one, a dramatic monologue.

    Wow, two fabulous poems and they’re so wonderfully different from each other. Two distinct ways of creating a moving and superb experience with poems.

    Two beauties, Joe. That sad ending of the poem about your dad–đź’”
    And:
    “Escaping your home, age after age, you’ve wandered,
    flying wildly toward the outer edge of time and back
    to the nest of this moment—singing….”

    Beautiful poems! That’s quite a tale, “The Healing Silence”. And what an ending.
