There are beautiful people that write impressively; some extraordinaries, and many most excellent, but You, Poet,
You have the quills that dance, talk, and describe the action
and the subject in a colorful depiction of lively form.
I am polishing my creative tools with the perfume of Your writings; and am nourishing my mind with the contents of Your works.
May The Mother-Poet keep You in good health
through a long creative life.
I enjoyed the reading of "Nothing But Lipstick".

|Janet - If you will permit a personal note here; your lady is almost a living model of the wife who was my life. Your words are so accurate and fitting, I'm about to say that you must have been looking over our shoulder. This a high drama in the peace and gentility of a wonderful life, recalled. You should take this one and submit copies to the best poetry magaines. The world should read such a tribute to older women who have lived well for us. (However, my wife was a very good cook, but not an accomplished painter.) I love this one. - Bill

|This literally moved me so deeply, I weep. Seriously. I have to go with Eileen... this is totally magical and the sheer breadth of its depth and scope is stunning. Yet another cinematic and highly vivid portrait and screenplay from the ink and brushes of your most exquisite mind, Janet. TY and bless you. Kate xx|

|This is one vivid and awe inspiring piece you have created and developed here. It actually walks the reader through the subjects life to the sad but hopeful conclusion. I could smell the salt in the air, feel the grit of sand on her finger tips and see the lipstick glisten on her lips. Poems like these are rare, well done

|My dear friend there will be MANY MANY more than 70....trust me. And this poem is just plain beautiful - the reflection of life lived through good and bad times but in the end spent with your very best friend. Just as it should be. This poetic piece bursts with love and longing, and has been painted as only you could do with your vivid paint strokes and gentle words.|

|Astounding piece of poetical musing here, Janet. This is a sorta like projecting into the future kind of poem that just make a body (southern for person, but you knew that) feel good. Excellent.|
