    A neat poem, mounting up step by step to the epiphany where it brings home the lullabylike peace.

    There is a deeper meaning than the obvious here. Nicely done, Lynn.

    Connections in all instances have their own relationships that make them interesting. It is a question of picking them out for oneself!

    From family ties to the world around us, we’re connected. I like how they’re sharing what is theirs as a community.

    Like the rings of a Tree this travels outward and like the ripples in a pond has no end. Wonderful.

    I feel this as an ever wider circle of community… truly that’s how it is, from our closest onto nations.

    Nice use of the words “connection” and “blood” in different ways.
