Spring a Butterfly

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

I found this very moving too, and beautiful as your poems always are!

I like how you wander in and

Posted on Thu, 20 Feb 2020

I like how you wander in and out of the painting, and memory and conversation. And like the picture, the female seems to hold up the image of the male

 

No men really shine even if they insist

I really admire the way  last

Posted on Sat, 15 Feb 2020

I really admire the way  last words in the lines stand out, as with - wild, hurled, and the alliteration of wind and wild. I feel my throat opening like the sky as I read it, to make the long vowel sounds in my mind. Would be a great one to  hear...

I love your walking poems,

Posted on Thu, 30 Jan 2020
