    She paid me in the kind of pennies that change hands when someone says PENNY FOR YOU THOUGHTS. I pay the thoughts forward and there is a shower of pennies from Heaven.

    I am humbled after reading through your poetry. Your poetic voice has a subtle soft ring to it as I read. At some parts the writing is conversational, and at others, I sense pure poetry at its best, with seamless meter, rhythm, alliteration and imagery. Metaphor and deeper meaning can easily be found by the reader, yet the writing doesn't hammer that in....which I like. The paths traveled by the speaker are much different from my own, which enables me (the reader) to go on a small adventure with each poem I read. The author's notes are of interest, but the style of writing enables the reader to also seek their own connections.

Devotional strains ring out in this secular school
Art is the vehicle, so a wanderer like me feels at home
As Bach's chorales made me Christian at least in sympathy
Now I peek into the dance theater, roofed in thatch
Bharatanayam dancers are going through basic steps
Bodies and heads tilt as if guided by inner ...

Cows In Mysore

In that district of cow stalls, their haven is a palm-grown promenade.

They return at twilight from their routes, alone or in twos and
threes

They thread their way past intersections, all motorists giving way

By day they comb the city, browsing on provender left in baskets
