Bright seasonal changes of many hues! You've in this paid your poetry dues!

I think you should start a makeup line. ;o)

This was wonderful! I love a poet's pigment to colour the world... Great stuff Dave.

this is good enough to make shell silverstein proud!

I agree with Anita. Lots of good names for lipstick and eye shadow! As always, Mr. Fitzgerald, a wonderful read. Full of giggles and smiles!

You are entertaining and introspective

Its strange, my friend...I read your stuff and I think to myslef, "Did I write that?" Are we long lost twins?

Your talent for the nonchalantly effervescent is readily apparent. I am enviously green.
