I APOLOGIZE I WASN’T ABLE TO READ OR RESPOND TO THE CONTRIBUTIONS. FOR AWHILE I HAVE POSTED FUTURE WEEKLY PROMPT AND OTHER POSTS. I HAVE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY EYES FOR A FAR AMOUNT OF TIME. IN LESS THAN A FEW WEEKS I WILL BE HAVING LASER EYE SURGERY. IT IS GETTING MORE DIFFICULT TO SEE ON THE COMPUTER. LETTERS GET MIXED UP. CAN’T TELL WHAT IS WHAT. I WILL CATCH UP AS SOON AS I AM ABLE. PLEASE CONTINUE WITH THE CHALLENGE IF YOU WOULD LIKE AND READ AS MANY OF THE OTHER POEMS OR STORIES ARE LINKED IN. SEE YOU BACK HERE SOON. I WILL GET MY PARTNER TO HELP ME WITH MY NEXT FEW POEMS OR PROSE. – kiley aka jk

    Thank you all for the good wishes. My sight is crystal clear for the first time today after the laser surgery. Trying not to spend too much time online yet. I do want to see all the colors I lost and the intense focus of sight I have missed and don’t believe I’ve had so clear since I was a kid. It is like looking through new eyes. – kiley ❤
