    “To live and stay untied” Brilliant! You are a weaver of words that bring the mind and heart of the reader to new heights emotionally and mentally. Thanks so much for the journeys you take me to through your work, Olivia.

    Hello Olivia.
    I love your attitude these days.
    You were down for the count, but not completely out.
    Your inner strength and courage are AMAZING!

    Keep on striving for that higher ground. I know you can & will make it. You’re the epitome of a true heroine! (smile)

    Well done, my dear…well done!

    The poem and song compliment each other, and remind me how I can always shadow my sorrows with the remembrances of happy moments. Attitude counts big time.

    Great your comments are working Olivia! I managed to sort mine out too (some kind of bug). I can see you’ve worked very hard on this – very well thought out and I love the shape of the ewer! I particularly like the bit which says;-
    “Flapping to fly high while being strewn in thread
    rising back to life from dead”
    which ends the poem on a very hopeful note. Thanks for joining in this challenge Olivia – appreciated (and apologies for not being able to comment sooner 🙂 )

      Hey Lynda!!!
      I am glad it’s sorted now. It’s frigging creepy! At times, the features behave like a naughty spoilt kid.. 😀 I am sorry that both of us went through this!

      Thank you so much for posting it at your site. I had a blast working around this one. Now I know why this song has always remained one of my faves! I know it’s dark- but I try to end it on a hopeful note. I write how I feel or about my present day bits. But of course I want an escape and in hope, I do my bit with the endings.

      Thank you again for this opportunity! Ewer.. aah! Once it works out as I so wish it does; we will all drink from it..

      Many Hugs xoxoxox
