    Dear Alexandra, I read your poems, and I think 'Sleepless Nights' and 'Wandering Aimlessly' are especially beautiful, showing a touching depth and maturity. The word choice and metaphors were just right, gripping, and poignant. I loved the rhythm of the pieces, as you seemed to have a real feel for phrasing. Btw, I also have a daughter named Alexandra Connell, and your work sounded a lot like hers. I wish you could meet her, and so does she. Blessings, MMConnell
