      'tis all so extraordinary. I was set to mention my favorites but I see that Sueswawn has already quoted them in her comment - so - I second that!

      I'm also taken with the portent of

      "assonance

      sibilance" - very evocative words!

      Excellence beautifully expressed!

      Oh, you're so special, Audrey. Voted up. A poet who can write one word lines like that is sooooo clever: you're soooo clever Audrey. Whenever I write like that, it doesn't sieve properly: comes out like sticky awful gluey stuff! (If you know what I mean!)

      High Five, Audrey, my hero.

      Stunning. Each word has a meaning; great poetry, Audrey! I can never get enough of your poetry. You expressed a vast array of emotions here. When I think of "dissonant" I feel emptiness of the soul; when i think of "flute-like", I feel light, airy, born to feather out my sounds. Very beautiful, Audrey. I commend you for your ture poetry :)
