  1. I’m blown away by the emotional impact of this one. I love the way you combine contrasting tones – the hope and loss; the pain and beauty. Excellent work, Callum 🙂

  2. I agree with Mel. This one has real impact, Callum. Well done. (Except of course, you Brits can’t spell worth diddly! Everyone knows it’s “MOLD!!” *snort*)

    • Thank you, Marcia 🙂

      You know, it’s funny, I’ve been thinking a lot recently about how many Americans may read British spellings in my poems/posts and think they’re typos. Language is a funny old thing, isn’t it?! 🙂

      • It is, indeed. And a powerful old thing, too. But if anyone who reads poetry (or much of anything else, really) doesn’t know by now that we Americans changed the spelling of YOUR words quite a bit, then they’ll just have to muddle through it all the best they can, right? 😀 Gray/grey, color/colour, center/centre…they’ll figure it out, eventually. Maybe. 😀
