I love the subtle way of your illustrations. At first they look simple, but the more one looks the more one sees. Excellent work!

Darlin, I don't think he will ever want to be rid of you. You honor him with your every waking moment and that is honorable.

Very nice illo as usual.

Was this your husband? I'm sorry for your loss. I can't imagine a day without my husband.

A nice illustration, the shadow in the eyes is very good.

Did you write this? It's wonderful! I am sad for you and for the roots of this poem, but you defined your loss succinctly and in sharing it, you've touched us. Thank you for sharing.

I think many of us are haunted, and as your sweet, sad words illustrate, we in turn haunt those loves as well.
Her eyes have a haunted, almost desparate look to them, wonderful artwork here, simple, compelling!

Your poems shows deep emotion and loss, and is free from any tacked-on metaphors... moving.

(And thanks for your comment!)

As one who has lived what you wrote - I am in awe of your grasp of portrayal. You have so much talent to express beauty and whimsy in your work - as well as bringing tears to the readers' eyes.
