Thanks for your comment on 'Catholic Girl.' Ironically, I am not (and have never been) a Catholic, nor have I felt like this about my mother. So, I can't claim that this poem sprang from personal experience or anything like that. Still, I'm very glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again.
Thank you very much for reading and commenting on Dancing Rain. Hopefully when I have written more of the series it will make more sense to you! Maybe it's just a taste thing (I really like the cryptic style so that's why I tend towards it) but the poems are going to be intended as a whole so that may help. I am glad you liked the imagery though.
