    Hi Frank,

    I'm not sure but i think this might have been the first i have read from you.....i've been doing ALOT of reading recently so apologies if that's wrong but I have to say that this piece is staggeringly good.

    The imagery that comes through in this write is as vivid as if i were standing in front of it and like truly great poems that image builds as you read along and builds immediately after every word as opposed to after you've finished the poem - I don't know if that sounded like a compliment or not but it was supposed to hahaha

    I have to say that this....

    "Your eyes
    are the celebration of meaning
    where there is no word
    but the consonance of fire
    in an eternal shrine
    of poetry."

    ^^^^^This right here....well.....due to the terms and conditions of this website i'm not allowed to type what i said out loud after I read this stanza, however, it was very bad language meant in the best ways, the poem as a whole is beautifully written, really faultless BUT this last stanza for me was just CrAzYgOoD, it would stand up as a poem on it's own and be just as wonderful.

    I look forward to reading more from you.

    Ben

    By chance I have across this piece and glad that I have. It's still a mystery how even a glance can be described in a way such as this. As Ben said, the imagery here is outstanding that I see eyes before me. Breathtaking.
