  1. Awesome in every sense and context. Beautiful in spirit, too! Painful in a silky way like the unseen waves of feelings in the vastness between the limits of what we see and what we can’t. Your heart is fertile, Melissa. It’s blossoming with day lilies. Much love…

  2. Your tanka is heartbreaking in context of the letter I received this weekend. Funny how much more the words hold when you’re living the experience. Thanks for this…it’s a fitting tribute.

  3. This is very moving, Melissa. The uncertainty that the stars are even actually there anymore, compared with the “you”, who may be there in memory only. And the yawning chasm between both spaces.
