Hello Tom

Along careful edges of concentric ripples, of poetry you drown . Words are very clever. Digressing with drunken dripping levity. Knitting inconveniently.

Its an ocean unending. At times. Its a basin's edge.

Wonderful poems. Haven't been keeping well for the past fortnight. So could not read you.

In case you happened not to pass by, on a belated valentine's celebration I could not forget the grey you had once talked of.

I re read Mnemonic too. It moved me to an emotion unknown.

I was much moved to be invited to your belated valentine's celebration, and (of course) honoured by the august company.

I do worry about you, just a bit. But I am certain all will come right for you, and before very much longer.

(Indeed too one might well do better to worry about oneself, just a bit.)
