This is reallty clever!!!!!!! I read that woman doctor's book about her stroke and how it helped her understand the whole left side right side thing......"My Stroke of Insight" - there is a cool vidclip of her giving a talk about it on the net somewhere. Your poem reminded me of that.

Thanks, Sherry Blue Sky!! I would look that up. Personality thingies always interest me. :)

I love it! Visual poems are quite rare to begin with, and this is just so.. I'm speechless. Great job! :)

I don't know why, but the adjective I'd use to describe your visual poetry would be 'orgasmic.' It was just that mesmerizing. Thank you. This made my day.

I loved this poem. My right brain and left brain are constantly battling each other for control, so I completely related to your words. Wonderful read!
