Hi James
Thank you sincerely for your very kind words.
I just want you to know that you have a wonderful blog of work.
Anyone who has ever been smitten by love should be able to relate to your work 'On the Influences of Love'... delete 'dime store' and insert 'poundshop' for the people of the UK.. but it is great as it is.

'The Slow Boy' is a beacon of hope for anyone, regardless of gender, with confidence and self-belief.
"It's amazing what that boy achieved
When he failed to listen, but believed...

I hope that somebody more articulate than I could read, comment and maybe analyse your poem 'A River' (after first reading your preface 'I thought to try something different').
It is indeed a most beautiful piece of work.

I am humbled that you like my stuff! Thank you.
