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
