It is a great team I am working with, and only seek to extend it with time. Thank you for your kind words. I am very gratified that you enjoyed the magazine (you should see it in print...stunning!) and the whole idea was a melange of the merger of images and words, the free access to my works and those of the other contributors, and building something durable. We are going to be, for the time, a quarterly publication.

I've always written that I don't like promotions in the Articles section. But this is a wonderful exception. There is really no need for the descriptions here except that some people may wish to get the back story on the photos and the poems. I went to the download and found that it was a stunning example of what a fine poetry presentation should be.
I've always found the human body to be wonderful in all of its ramifications and most photographers and artists gravitate towards the human body in their work. I totally can't understand why film and some literary outlets ban the human body and violence as though they were the same thing. In fact, violence is often more acceptable. It makes me wonder how our value system got so mixed up.
Unlike you who view poetry as a religious experience, I have always used poetry as merely an exercise to enhance my vocabulary and convey various thoughts and ideas that I have. That some of my poems have struck a chord among the general Internet population who search them, is an unexpected bonus.
You can be very proud of your accomplishment. I know you couldn't have done it without the help of Mariya Andriichu. Kudos to you both.

Truly masterful poem reaching deeply into the thoughts and emotions of the poet and the reader.
Overture and Underworld (Poetry) - 8/17/2014 11:04:45 AM
This is a monumental piece of facing reality in turbulent times that often come in middle-age between the buoyancy of youth and the resounding trumpet heralding the arrival of old age. Reached me…

This is so romantic, and beautiful. Soft and tender and filled with lovely sentiments. I like this a lot.
gold and violet (Poetry) - 5/8/2014 12:04:23 PM
Something old and something new. A little bit of something to contemplate, from my view.
49 degrees in LA (Poetry) - 5/5/2014 6:18:47 PM
After 25 years I escaped LA. Construction will block your access to the 405 for the rest of your life and Santa Monica will remain rapture's bulls eye. That said I hope your return works out and your royal subjects pay their appropriate tribute.
49 degrees in LA (Poetry) - 5/4/2014 7:59:50 AM
i really like your voicing and imagery in this poem ... gave me a introspective temperature reading of LA ;)
49 degrees in LA (Poetry) - 5/3/2014 8:48:55 AM
Your words are no doubt unique to LA,
but you express a universal sentiment that is easy to identify with.
This is down to the pavement good.
49 degrees in LA (Poetry) - 5/2/2014 3:39:13 PM
Very nice. Nostalgic in a bit dark way, like a city born would say. Grtz, D.T.

This pulses with hope, life and determination.
your resolute (Poetry) - 8/12/2010 3:35:21 AM
That last verse is melting. Some of us are born out of time it seems. Such a resolute is priceless. Written from the soul, felt in the soul.
the perfecting dark (Poetry) - 8/12/2010 3:28:20 AM
A breathtaking declaration of passion only the heart and flesh of a poet could understand. I believe this embodies the intensity all passionate women would want from a lover. Very beautiful.

I do not chase the wind (Poetry) - 7/14/2010 5:14:37 PM
Sweet wisdom William. Love the content of the second stanza and those "golden apples".
White Sunday V (Poetry) - 7/14/2010 6:35:54 AM
oh yes...those last lines
are very moving William
I can only imagine what I would feel
to hear someone say such a beautiful thing to me
with the sincerity of it all & none of the lusting
(lusting is good though) but in this feeling here
I feel a man naked with truth & this in itself is beautiful
or should I say beautifully inviting...
I adore the entirity of this poem
Every Day of The Week
addiction (Poetry) - 7/14/2010 6:30:39 AM
ohhh...this is charged William!
erotic and lusty
and also the play on words & phrases which grab hold
of my attention as I was seeing heroin adicts at one moment
& then a split second later....lovers climaxing
the rush of fervent need and penetrations pulsing
Tea spiked with Jack Daniels & Fresh Lemons
White Sunday V (Poetry) - 7/12/2010 9:04:30 AM
Interesting take. One of the beauties of poetry is that often people can see in it what works for their worldview, their resonances.
White Sunday V (Poetry) - 7/11/2010 4:34:51 PM
I READ THIS AS A CONVERSATION, BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN MY REDEEMER AND ME...THERE WAS NOTHING LOST AT ALL, IT IS STILL A PASSIONATE LOVE WORK. WELL DONE AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING, LOVE AND BLESSINGS. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
I do not chase the wind (Poetry) - 7/8/2010 6:15:18 AM
Compelling and I really like the rhyme scheme. The last verse is my favorite. "Golden apples of poetry" such a wonderful phrase.
The Sunday Girl (Poetry) - 7/5/2010 9:29:39 AM

White Sunday XIII (Poetry) - 7/1/2010 7:35:00 AM
I have been very, very busy. Prolific to a fault. I plan on sticking around for a while. Glad you like it...but, as always, I can only claim to being the mirror or lens to the passion and the muse.
The Law is Love (Poetry) - 7/1/2010 7:30:11 AM
And love is all, William. Thank you for sharing this perspective. Love and peace to you,
White Sunday XIII (Poetry) - 7/1/2010 7:28:20 AM
Oh...I've missed you! This is more fiery than the most dramatic sky with shooting stars...you haul this from the depth of the loins and I keep expanding my conception of what the poetry of Romantic Poet of the Internet William F. DeVault means in terms of a male poet's innermost virile character. Ancient, at love's thrust striding into eternity, William...you are the actual architect of ancient, timeless romantic poetry...it's good to see you back...be well.
