Re: Journey

Thank you AJ for a wonderful month of poems, criss-crossing so many themes and tones and emotions. I am only sorry I have been too busy to give everything due attention but will surely read and re-read your poems in the coming quieter weeks. The forest Trillium poem is awesome. Thanks

A very fitting poem to end and please, please taking up the pencil. So enjoyed everyone of your wondefully crafted poems. Always admire your extraordinary skill in not conjuring unique images but in shaping them into such wonderful holistic pieces.

Re: EYES OPEN - a string of modified haiku

Re: Ampersand Again _ April 2021
