|Rafika: Your elegantly expressed feelings of passion find their voice in rhymes so carefully chosen, yet so naturally rendered that they seldom feel the slightest bit deliberate, forced or confined. I love the way you give just the tenderest hint of regret at the loss of your first lover and then allow that idle breeze to saturate the entire poem. Like Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac told us long ago, lightening strikes maybe once, maybe twice. I hope you feel the thunder again, and that's not just because I'm crying for a sequel to this or because I'm totally thunderstruck, either! Again, nice to hear your voice.

|Rafika, this is just soooo beautiful. And even more so when you profoundly delivered each line. You do have your own unique writing style. Simply beautiful!

|There is alaways the tendency for the relationships to wither away if the fire within the both parties die.
Kudos for the Apologies to Boanerges

|Rafika, this is so, so, well, I can hardly think of how to express it. I think you have done a beautiful work here; I like your unique title (which may be a mystery to some, along with the term "Sons of Thunder") and the analogy of it; I love the style, as though you are speaking to the first love. Suffice to say, I am impressed and enjoyed this and your gift of reading.

|This is beautifully written and although bitter sweet in the end, it is highly romantic and compelling. Outstanding piece of real life! Well done Rafika!
