      savanah,

      I loved this piece. I have several pieces of Abstract/Prose in my hubs. One being, "An Old Dreamer's Dream," and I would consider it a big favor if you read it and gave me what you think.

      As for this hub, I will tell you the truth. I really love this hub.

      This is an excellent piece of writing. Amazing work. I loved the way you presented your topiic. Wonderful graphics.

      This piece was helpful, informative and very interesting.I was glad to vote Up and all of the choices.

      You are certainly a gifted writer. Please keep up the fine work.

      Sincerely,

      Kenneth Avery, Hamilton, Alabama

      savanahi, to know and read a calligram form of poetry is really very interesting. This art looks fascinating and the poets who turn out such poems are like twin ones being poets and artists both. You have created a wonderful calligram about aspects of leaf. I loved and relished both , your art and poem woven into one.

      Ordered from the Amazon ad, too. Great learning of this form of poetry. Has your "Alarming Spring" alarm gone off yet? You were the first commenter on that one of mine, and so far I am the last commenter on this fine one of yours. Thanks all around.

      A very interesting form of poetry, and one I just learned of thanks to you. Thanks. Has your "Alarming spring" come yet? You were the first commenter on that one of mine, and here I am (only so far) the last commenter on this one of yours!

      Thank you Suburban Poet. I know what you mean about the indent. I tried for an hour trying until finally I just used the underscore to move my words over. Thanks for reading.

      Beuatiful poem in a challenging style. I admire this.... especially because I can't get anything to indent on my hubs if my life depended on it! Great job!

      This is such a simple poem but so beautifully expressed in picturous words. The aesthetic balance of lines and words is clever. Spring is time for renewal and new hope. Thanks for the encouragement.

      I love the imagery in this and I appreciate the shape. I've written poetry in which I tried to configure the words into a picture; it's not easy! I voted this up and beautiful. :)
