|Jon, your ability to meld and mold words brings out a jealousy I never imagined existed within me. Well done, indeed.
I rarely comment on so many of the same poet’s works, especially one right after the other, but I'm a new fan and I'm just beginning to catch up.

|A dark portrait of cold and want but still ending with hope, so well penned.|
|Reviewed by Sheila Roy
You keep getting better and better. I love the descriptions in this poem. It's harder for poets to come up with original imagery for the many faces of nature, but you've done it. I especially like the first verse. Excellent!

|We watch as the steps...march on bye.
We, like the sun find our reasons...walking on bye.
Always a pleasure Jon.
I wrote this for you Jon
I never felt secure, except
in the winds
that blew up around me
a life, that gave me
a reason to reach out and hold onto
a world of turbulence
...and the color, that screamed out
Jon I reached out and held on

|You don't hold back or flinch, Jon, My Friend, this is how it happens over and over, the cycle is in one sense cruel but without it there is no renewal. Without death there is no new birth; without birth, there is no death..
but apart from the cycle and the thought processes inherent, there is the writing - they're not separate of course, they're intertwined - and the writing is top drawer, the images pared to maximum impact and resonance. This is just so right.

|This is irresistible poetry! Complex and incredibly profound.

|Jon is it just me? Or is this
and seductively taken?
Well I am...be it me or not...
This is a gorgeous offering

|Always a pleasure to read your inspired writings. My roses hold out until the first hard freeze, as well as my Petunia's and Marigold's. There is a chill in the air but no sign of our cold Winter as yet. Hope I'll see that next Spring with you and your delightful poetry.

|This is a theme that is very close to my heart and one that has inspired many of my verses as well, Jon. I love the personification here and the entire offering. Thank you, friend. Love, peace, and best wishes,
