    I find Bill to be a very gentle man, who writes from his heart. Not only does Bill inspire others to write, he also encourages us to do better. The pictures he paints with his words are like watching them unfold in real time, right there in front of your face. I feel blessed to have made a friend of Bill.

    Bill Cantrell's poetry is heart-piercing and important and on point. He pens very wise poems and couches them in vibrant word choices and strong and original visuals.
    For example: Tomb of the Rose- - This is an exquisite demonstration of the strength of vision when delivered in simplicity and brevity.. A thousand more words would have smothered the tender message - - a thousand elaborate words would have weighed down the wings of this beauty. It is that rare poem- - perfect just the way it is.
    .For example: Enabler- - -There is a different tone to this well-written observation about how our actions or lack thereof can be as evil as the perpetrators'. It's a sad world that this man and this woman live in- it's cruel, demeaning, draining, and soul-destroying... for both of them. Bill's word choices and terms are unique and outstanding- -grooming the darkness- - you give him wings- - and the last two lines of the poem are a powerful indictment of today's society.
    For example: Inner Struggles- - This poem is so perfect in its expressions of frustration, its howls of creative desperation, protesting the gelding of the spirit, fighting against the status quo poetry! This poem is sheer creativity on fire! .
    For example: Full Circle- - - This is such a whiplash collision of two of the strongest emotions that a human being can ever feel on their turn around the earth. I cannot call it beautiful because it hurts, I cannot not call it beautiful because it is expressed so beautifully. Kelly Kurt found three very good descriptives for this piece- - succinct, poignant, resonates.... oh yes, and excellent. This poem is all of those and more.... so much more.
    I recommend that all lovers of poetry take an extraordinary journey through the poems Bill has written. They are diamonds of the first water. In them, he captures it all... the thoughts and emotions and concepts that rule our earthly life. He catches it in his soul and puts it down in words so beautifully and so wonderfully for us.

Best Poem of Bill Cantrell

The Treasure Of A Letter

Words carefully written,
Will they stand the test of time?
The secret is emotion,
Not in the way words rhyme.
Treasures found,
Lessons learned,
Put them in a chest.
No better words than I love you,
Could ever serve you best.

Tides Of Love

You need not burn old bridges
to keep me by your side.
The sun anoints your smile
and the moon dwells in your eyes

No road has ever taken me
to this place where all my dreams come true
No pain could ever cut so deep,
to think our love was through.
