  1. I came across this poem quite by chance, and I’m glad I did. As a poet myself I know that at least half of the creative process in poetry takes place after we have delivered our work; it takes place in the interpretive processes of the readership. This little piece spoke to me on more than one level. It was strong enough on its own to attract and hold my attention. After I read something about you on your ‘about’ page, the poem opened up. ‘True colors’ moved from metaphorical to actual; ‘weight’ moved from actual to metaphorical; thus the whole character of the poem changed for me.
