Hi Jim,
great senryu!
They got it right, Theodora, Stacey, inkwell whispers, the odd inkwell.... we are all one in the same. ;)
The odd inkwell and Theodora are for my cooler, edgier poet fans.

Are you asking for a ghosty visit?

That's quite the fancy jewelry, Jim. Is this the prelude to a seance?

Jim, it makes one wonder who has the better riches ...the one who passes on or the one who remains with worldly goods...enjoyed the thoughts you sent my way:)

Ah, but would you rather have no treasures, and the aunt still alive?

Love the last line - very pensive indeed.

You have me thinking about how our things outlast us on this earth; I suppose their greatest value is as reminders of love.

Hi Jim,

Your poem certainly evokes the mood of being pensive. I enjoyed your O.S.I. poem. Nicely done.

Oh Jim, this is lovely. I really liked your picture. That and your wonderful words paint your thoughts so well. Love it.
Took me this long to find out how to post my poem. I am such a dummy.
Thanks my dear friend for a great read.

Very clever how you left the inheritance ambiguous. What jewels does that chest hold?
Wishing you a wonderful vacation!
