The Pebbles On the Path I Walk (Book) - 3/16/2009 11:06:00 AM|
Yes, you're first class. You've got a marvellous voice and a fine sense of temper, colour and statement. Your poems rank among the very best written in our time.

I deeply enjoy your style of writing. I frind it mirrors my own thoughts and -in an inexplicable way- my own life. (The language of the paradoxon is my own language too.)
I want to thank you for your message and comments on my work (if I'm bold enough to call it that). It is a great compliment to me, especially from a writer like you.
What you say in your poems and thoughts is deeper than your age and deeper than yourself. Your art is like a call, like a mission that goes beyond personal life but involves every atom of it, at the same time.
Yours are some of the best lines I ever read.

The fluid beauty captured in your poems…leaves me speechless. And you’re so real in your work. I can relate to your every word and find myself shocked to remember that the author of these masterpieces does not know me. Even much of your work about your love (you said in your profile most of that – seems to be the work towards the top – is about Keifer – right?) is relatable (as the topic of love in general). Your work is perfectly written, with exceptional word choice, sometimes ever laugh-out-loud funny. I love “Poem Without Words” and “Seen and Heard”. Some of the statements your poems make are genius (such as “Take a Look”). You state something so simply, and your reader is left breathless, but you keep the poem moving without giving the reader a chance to recover. The truth of “My Escape” is all too painfully true. “One-Time Opportunity” is beautiful; don’t we all have that moment branded in our heads? How you convey the emotion or the moment (such as in “A Cage, a Key and a Vow”) is amazing to me; you really pull the reader in. If you don’t mind me asking, are the songs about “she” about you or a friend or anyone in particular?
I have attempted Shakespearean sonnets before (nothing worthy of sharing) and realize the time you’re put into these, and, just as that time is evident so is the heart behind the words. How long have you been writing your poetry (particularly these sonnets)? You have quite the library of poetry; admitably, it’s somewhat intimidating at first look over, and yet, when reading your work I was finished all too fast and longing for more, like a book written by a master leaves you at the end. You seem to be a natural poet.
Thank you for sharing these treasures, you really opened yourself to us readers. I genuinely look foreword to any future work of yours

Wonderful, songlike, like Forever. "Although I know you know I’ve shed them."-- your talent and ease of expression is outstanding.

Very sweet, interesting with view to its form which makes it one breath, sand of sand, one entity with no interruption, with nothing to disturb.
You are quite an amazing kind of person for sure.

Very, very beautiful. Dreamy indeed. Connie is right. It's just lovely.

Great use of the dash. Wonderfully told free verse poem, I felt like I was watching a film the way you pulled me into your penn, and hearing the poets voice is the mark of a good poet...

A dreamy kind of poem. I like it, like it.
