Wow, wow, wow!! It’s truly amazing!! You make our lives in China much more fun. Thank you FRED!!
Really amazing artwork all over the site. This not to be over shadowed by the wonderful words of Mr. Chandler! His words flow and are true and they are words to accept, absorb, and to meditate on.
New publications on Danse Macabre…check it out!
I can read these poems over and over again — they are like visiting the Redwoods or wandering through a desolate valley. One can wonder and contemplate their existence and, when least expected, encounter a great truth. They remind us the secrets of the universe are told every day in the sights and sounds we so often ignore.
Thanks everyone for all of your great comments! Always nice to hear feedback!
Mark, I do. And it was published. Go to ABOUT and it is listed under publications. Click on it and you can read it. Tell me what you think.
Do you have any food related poems?
Anita, I’m very touched how much Sacred Refuge touched you.
I thought “Tender to the Touch” was a very romantic and touching poem. I married my high school sweetheart and the poem made me think of the long journey of our relationship. As a child my parents didn’t help me to understand the sometimes challenging reality of marriage. I soon discovered that as “dreaming fades to waking” it takes real hard work and patience to keep a marriage successful. Now I understand that though physical passions overtime may diminish, with a strong healthy love you will feel that “ending was never enough.”
Patrick Gregston, I am now offering my 3 books of poetry as eBooks which will include many of my audio readings. So now you can use your cell phone, eReader or iPad to hear my readings and read my poems!
I don’t mean to be forward, but could the author answer a simple question? How, when and why did this poetry thing of yours started?

Mark, in 2007 I was in Sydney, Australia and was enlightened by a Zen Master. I wrote my first poem entitled The Last Light of Day on July, 27, 2007. I have been writing ever since.
This is a great site!

Hey Fred, I really like Kerplunk and the artwork with it is great. Keep up the good work!

Travis, a very interesting choice. You picked one of my poems Kerplunk, which is a favorite of Alex Garland. I know and worked with Alex on Danny Boyle’s movies 28 Days Later and Sunshine. Alex also wrote the best selling novel The Beach.
