    It was so lovely to meet you, Donall. I have read your poetry and it is beautiful. But having seen the way you bring it to life in a three-dimensional sort of way, taking the listener right into the scenarios as if you were performing vivid and colourful one-man plays I will no longer 'read' your poems but 'live' them. Keep on flowing.....

    734 poems. Crikey. I didn't know you'd been so busy. I have 60, that cause me limited squirming.

He made me smile even when i was in deep despair. He was the light behind the big thick black cloud. all in all a great man. hope to keep in contact with him.

The Way The Story Goes

Always enchantments
falling from your lips.

Orpheus...Eurydice
made real

made from the nearness
of your breath...a kiss.
