  1. I feel you have stated explicitly my inner thoughts, I love this one!

  2. It is always a pleasure to read one of Leila’s poems. She has a way of capturing moments that defy gravity and that find buoyancy in an undercurrent of hope. Here she explores my one of my favorite word, ‘linger.’ A word that touches and reveals a depth of feeling, and what feelings she pens, as she builds her way to the end of her poem. Here poems make me feel what is happening in and between the lines.

  3. Sweet Maestra this poem is gripping and filling. I find myself expanding with each image so hoping I don’t miss a side or feel. In it’s lush emotions I learned about relationships. This was instilled in me and will always “linger.” Thank you Teacher. You are a prima poetess and guru of emotions. Thank you.
