|Wonderful poem, just discovered it! The way you chose to write this reminded me of life's links, choices, dilemmas, causes, effects... A very original and startling point of view comes to life in just a few lines. The end and the title are both perfect.

|Excellent write, Nordette.|

|Love the matrix you cast for us here, Nordette, not only with the linkage between stanzas but also with the cross-referencing of ideas, such that they are perhaps duplicitous in the way our mind receives them: a real thing/THE real thing; real thing/orgasm transient or long and steady. I particularly love the way you play with images of the healer: her siphon could be to suck distress from her "patients" or indicative that she herself is desperate to be rid of decay. Even the salt image is dual: salt is beneficial to cleanse and heal the wounded; or it could be a figure to represent the "pouring away of tears". "On the rooftop" makes me think of James Taylor and his star-gazing, or Elton John and his focussed introspection. But I like the way this Goddess has very atuned ears to all that is going on upstairs and downstairs, witnessing the dynamics of the whole house. Some astute observations written in quite a maxim-form encapsulating much of the human condition within its brief and colourful synopsis. I'm still envious of your ruby-red stiletos, literary-wise; I've yet to make it out of comfy, old flip-flops! :)) xx|

|I feel a direct connection to this poem. I too am a healer and a poetess. You are very talented and I love reading your work. Your last few lines really hit a chord inside of me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words.
Much peace, love, and light to you dear poetess,
Amber "V" Namaste

|Excellent. Like the format you used. Simple. Direct. Poets and dreamers! Poets and realism, two peas in a pod.|

|Word tag, the last two words become the theme of the next stanza. Clever, pretty ears the Goddess on the Rooftop has...she's listened well to write poetry like this...poetry that keeps the world in rightful balance, Nordette...it's always good to read your work, you write of such identifiable characters...
