Late Thanks.: Koko, I have noticed that you replied to several of my pieces and regretably I have not visited yours. I appologise and will do so in the very short future. Thank so much. I had fun writing this piece because though I may have days such as this in my teen years I did not live in their environment. The research for this was enjoyable and the images that came into my imagination were as well. I am glad you liked it enough to comment on it and appreciate all your comments. Take care.

Thanks: First of all I want say thanks for taking the time to read my work. It is greatly appreciated.  I am glad this piece gave you reason to think of a pleasant time in your life. This piece was inspired by the thermometer I saw at a flea market. I imagined it nailed to a porch column and developed that image into what is written here. You are welcome to return and read other pieces and I shall visit yours. Take care and most of all "Write On!"

I think this poem also: I think this poem also contains what will someday be the title of your entire collection (in the way Stevens wanted to title his collected poems as "The Whole Harmonium") will be Practicing Immortal On Currents Of Light.  At this point, I should like to amend a comment I made months ago, and nominate this poem, because it contains this phrase at its center, as the absolute center of your entire collection, and the focal point around which all of your other poems orbit, or will orbit as you post new ones.  This poem is a star, and light and warmth are being fused from the words you have given it, and then flow into and through and around the other poems as they orbit around this star.  This poem reminds me of Stevens' centerpiece poem, Notes Toward A Supreme Fiction (although your poem is not quite as wordy as his):  he was great before he wrote it, and those who loved to read his poems already knew this; but when he published Notes, his greatness ascended to a superlative level.  This poem has made that ascension, from your greatness to your superlative greatness,  And that is not a stopping point; this poem has achieved such a height, and your next poems will extend the breadth of that height, if that makes sense.

Thank you.  All your comments: Thank you.  All your comments mean so much to me, but on this poem, your comment actually ministers to me.

A moving declaration of your: A moving declaration of your commitment to your spiritual roots. God bless you as you return home. And yes, "adherence means more than attendance". It should be the motto of Christians everywhere.

This reminded me of my: This reminded me of my grandparents residence just north of a small village.  Though they would be considered "working poor," they owned a piece of property that had a wide yard, with a creek running through it, and then, westward, became a wildflower meadow which extended far back to a walnut woods, which they did not own.  I spent many pleasant hours there, although in my adolescence I did not visit near as much as I should have; for which I am assailed by the gutwrenching regrets.  The great British actor, Peter Cushing, a devout but nonsectarian Christian, believed that Heaven would be, for each person there, like the place he or she liked the best.  For me, in my old age, that would be my grandparents place.  (Because, during my first few years, we always had Thanksgiving dinner together with them, there, I came to believe that, although it was in Ohio, the Pilgrims had come through there after leaving the Mayflower, lol.)  Anyhow, your poem revived these thoughts for me in a most poignant way, and that is one of the highest compliments I can offer.

That sort of "hearing" seems: That sort of "hearing" seems be a not entirely uncommon response my writing. I think I've gotten that a few times now, and almost certainly on a previous writing which you've been kind enough to read. Whereas I try to write lyrical poetry, I'm glad that comes across sometimes : )  Thank you for reading, and I am glad to 'hear' that you are glad to be you ; )
