|John, powerful my friend. To the staccato march of your terse descriptors this reaches out and demands attention. Faith flows from every line. This is a fine rendering filled with compassion and deep understanding of spiritual commitment. I bid you love and peace my friend. Jon Michael|

|How your images strike, John!
In short pithy lines they sit up and demand notice, and rightly they receive it for this is writing of true quality, top drawer.
It's good to see you back after so long, I missed you.

|John, it was good to see you back and posting on AD.
This is a very special poem for rarely do you see such beauty and mercy
in a poem.

|Your poetry brought tears to my eyes...Feeling as though I intruded on hallowed ground/water with your sharing of such private thoughts as these, yet feeling honored that you would share such beautiful words and feelings with us. The picture you create is a restful, hopeful one of joy, not melancholy...
So good to read your words again, John! May you have a wonderful Merry Christmas full of joy and may the coming year be full of many blessings.

Strange how I posted a poem on AD yesterday and you today. But as usual, yours far surpasses mine in poetic beauty. To me, "Match Mate in Heaven" speaks of the advancement of aging, the passing of youth, separation of lovers, and then being together for an eternity, since theirs is a match "made" in heaven. Stay well, John. Thanks for causing us to think. It was so good to read you once more.
