|Love the rhythm in this one, John. Another thing that dazzles is how you've communicated this runner's love for running. There's a meant-to-be, natural feel as the scenery whips by. Excellent.

|I think that only once or twice in a generation, there comes a voice that speaks in the wilderness AND has the strength to go the distance.
I like the cadence here, especially of the last six lines that are like a victory dance. The meaning is carried so well. Fine tribute to Mr. Mandela, John!

|Great rhythm and word choice in this poem about one of my "heroes".
The last stanza is incredible, it really makes an impact on the reader's mind.

|History in the making with a cadence...I hear the conga drums with the witch doctor conjuring up some rain...the drought of both politics and of Mother Earth...only those who endure the dry spell are the leaders, Marathon Man, Nelson Mandela...great poem, John...I love a poem which incorporates geographical mention and those we hold high...be well...
|Reviewed by Angela Farrell (Reader)
|I am swept up in the breadth and movement of these lines, as I was in 'Call of the Wild' and 'Agoraphobia'. Lines to revisit, where one will always find more depth and meaning. A writer of superior thought, so wonderfully expressed.|
