    I would like to thank you, Addrienne, for writing here. I have learned new things from your poetry. I am deeply amazed at the depth of your poetry, and even now am striving to acheive it with my own poetry. I have but one question, at least one answerable one, anyway. How do you get the Copyright on your poems? I would like to know, if you will please message me. Thank you! !

    Adrienne Barnathan writes poetry as it should be, raw, charged and packed with imagery to move the human heart.
    By far one of the best poets on Poem Hunter.

    I just read three of your poems for the first time. Very cool! I felt nostalgia rise in me as I did, in the simple sublimity of the images you create. I look forward to reading more...thanks.

    I just read close to 40 of your poems- i loved many of them and left a lot of comments- i really appreciate your comments on my own stuff- its pretty cool to have someone living in australia read your stuff. Your poems are great- many created new images and senses for me, which is the very most i can get from poetry. i hope you keep writing madly.


Best Poem of Adryan Rotica

- Black Elk Speaks

The power of the world
always works in circles.
The sky is round,
and I have heard
the earth is round
like a ball,
and so are all the stars.
The wind,
in its greatest power, whirls.
Birds make their nests
in circles,
for theirs is the same religion as ours.
The sun
comes forth and goes down
in a circle
The moon does the same.
And both always come back
to where they were.
The life of man is a circle
from childhood to childhood.
And so it is in everything
where power moves.'

Bitter old men
with pick axes
picking and spittin'
like cocky 1960's
Japanese Cartoons
over painted brooks
in their quest
to salute meanness
