Rarely does one come across a poet who has the uncanny ability to say so much in so few lines. When I need a smile, or a chance to think... I come and read Mr. Audet's work. He's a genius with brilliant ideas that seem to effortlessly flow through his fingers onto the keyboard to grace our computer screens. I bow to his talent...
Warmest regards and respect,
Contrary to his modest biography, Chuck Audette's superior wordsmithing places him in a league of his own. He has a flair, wit and imagination that combine to make him one of the most original writers I have come across. His wordplay is second to none - sometimes so subtle that the reader may not fully appreciate his lexical gymnastics on first reading. He is the master of brevity, an unashamed rhymer and a respected commentator here at PH. His poetry has fast become an indulgence of mine and judging by the other comments I have read on his work, I know I am not alone. So, keep them coming Chuck - you know you're good...! Justine.
Wow, the plethora of pomes you have here is very reminiscent of being in a candy shop or talking to a drug dealer… so many great options. I love them all good thing you can overdoes on poetry. You must have one hell of a muse!
I thought about listing my favorite (so far) poems by Chuck, but then this whole comment would be one groaning LIST... Chuck is a real writer, one who thinks and knows and feels. What I mean is, he has the skills and he uses them; but he also has a true gift which he doesn't squander, the mark of a true artist... Much of his poetry flows so well, it seems effortless; but I suspect there is actual work involved. I hope there is - - if not, he's another poet/that's got my go-at! ... Keep on keeping on, C. C. Writer. And mind the size of your head 'cause if anyone's got a right to a size 42 hat, it's YOU! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Your grateful, laughing pal - - Est: ]
