A Perfect Fit

out of passion

was crafted love

For One Who Mourns

Lil' firecracker, July child-to-be
Another sunny redhead, she hoped in vain
No, for you there were other dreams

A Poem For The Seeker

Will you find that which you seek
Within the ruins of fire grown weak?
Ashes blown from hearth to heart
Choke life's breath, deaden its art.

Light And Darkness

houses house bodies
bodies house life

life houses souls

Chance And Change

For one ruined in love, the old status quo
Offers comfort of a kind tho' cold.
Suffering neglect, your heart is a wreck,
Yet one's vow demands payment of debt.

It's always difficult to individualise on poems when the writer is as good as Esther Leclerc. Suffice to say you're a joy to read, Esther. Warmly and always fondly, Jerry

Esther's poetry is representative of the notion of quality over quantity. Her work is dazzling, smart, humorous, compassionate and even intimate. She leaves her readers with a lasting impression and a yearning for more. Regardless of the topic, Esther is more than 'able' to impress!

I have to take issue with Esther. The line in her bio, that is, claiming not to be a poet. Little could be further from the truth; though dishonesty is not a fault that she has and modesty is an attribute that she has in quantity. Her pieces variously inspire, lend a laugh, cause introspection and/or express fine observation; and have in common the one denominator of being finely written, intelligent, apt and engaging. Very, very much so. I am very glad to have been commended to read her craft, and so will you be.

Witty, sensitive, born to write - all of these fit my dear friend, Esther. She can see the funny side, the sunny side, and as she gets better and better, she is getting into the depths and writing some truly hauntingly beautiful poems. I would say she is improving with age...but she would kill me if I did that! So I will just say you really must read her work. She is well worth it!

Esther is a fellow PIM* artist and a poet bursting at the seams with good humor, kindness and intelligence. I sometimes think she shares a brain with me - certainly possible if we're both half-wits? She embodies the best of Poemhunter - having fun, encouraging others and constantly improving herself. I can't say enough good things about her. Well, I could but it would get boring, so you might as well move along and read her very delightful poems. Sincerely -chuck * Poetry in Motion

Esther is witty, concise and sharp as a tack. She also has a talent for beautiful, haunting imagery.I know, I know, it's enough to make you sick isn't it? But put your jealousy aside for a moment and read her work - you will be well rewarded. Welcome to PH Esther! Hugs Anna xxx
