    Dear fellow Poet,

    This is Edwin Empestan, And this is to say that I’ve read some of your poems. It is wonderful to read your poems and I really enjoy your poems. Very well and excellently expressed. Well penned indeed.

    I hope you can continue to write more poems and I will wait for them and enthusiastically read and perhaps make a comment on how I feel after reading your poems.

    Congratulations and more power to you.

    You can also read my poems and I would also welcome for your comments.

    Best regards, God bless and more power!

    I have perceived who Andrew Blakemore is only through his writings, which I enjoy tremendously. They put the reader in the place where he is and every thing described can be seen or visualized in the mind. I have never written poetry before November 2007, but a person does not need to be an expert to know when someone's writing is good or not. When the words are concise, understandable, combined correctly with others, simple, these are the poems a majority of readers can appreciate and enjoy. Thank you Andrew for sharing your mind with all of us. Jeannie


If We Could Live Forever

If we could live forever
How much wiser would we be?
Would we have grown accustomed
To the suffering we see?
And would the world be of one mind
United then in love?
Would we be non believers
Or have faith in God above?

Would people still be starving
On that scorched and barren plain?
Would they still be forgotten
Waiting for the season's rain?
Or would we show compassion
To the poor and those in need?
Or learn to look the other way
To fuel our selfish greed?

Would we have learned to live in peace
Or learned to count the cost? ...

Across The Field

Across the field I once did stare
Towards the woodland that was there
I felt the cold of autumn air
And saw leaves upon the ground.

The early morning was so still
As sunlight rose above the hill
And began to warm the morning chill
But it couldn't warm my heart.
