My Love My Rotting Leaves (round robin)

Her service now concluded
I took my sullen solitude
Walked with it for quite awhile
We both got lost within the mood

Wondering what might have been
If budding love had bloomed
Questions rot like fallen leaves
Within my laden heart entombed

Within my laden heart entombed

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

In keeping with the theme and the mood. I was wondering how you would keep it going. Now it it's going to Carrie and hopefully, she will be able to conclude it successfully. Upon the conclusion, I think that we shall try to open a workshop and it will let us have a few more people. Nice job, ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
