|Awesome write! I was transported into the forest & his "inner man."|
|Reviewed by K. Mulroney
|I missed reading you Jude - but as always the message is a soul searching one. This reminds of the one person I am fighting for. All the injustices done to him. His only weakness was being a man-child. When he exercised the lost child in him, they crucified the man part of him. I am but one person but I will not let his memory die because I have been there and still am. And like him, I am told to stop living in a lost childhood, be the adult I have grown to be. No. If the child in us hides in the closet of fear, the adult in us will never reach its potential. Loved your work as I always have and I am glad to be back to read more.

|Wonderful tale...this child, was it you? There are softer realms, as yet unspoken, that wait their turn to lay upon this world...as they had wont to do many millenia ago. Not all things are written in stone...and not all things written in stone are...|

This is timeless, and a keeper too. Divine the ACE..

|Wonderful and I could follow the flow as I said to another person being nominated for poet of the year was an honor but with poems like this I really do not stand a chance.|
|Reviewed by Sherry Heim
|That child lives within each of us and it is important to let him back into our consciousness and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, as seen thorough his innocent eyes. Getting caught up in life and forgetting who we are, all of who we are, takes away our ability to see life as it should be seen. I couldn't help but believe that little boy was you and that you had let him out to play for the day. Marvelous work, Robert.

|I couldn't help myself, Robert... I believe you have written the essence of our dear fellow poet, Ed Kostro.
In the heat and upheavel of these days, this is hugely inspirational... thank you for reminding us that, even now, there is nature, pure and simple, to wrap us up and bring us the sense of peace we long for. I was absolutely absorbed. katy xox.
