    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.

    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!

    Saying more with less is quite a talent! Great poem, Esther.

    Saying more with less is a wonderful gift. Fantastic, Esther!

Best Poem of Esther Leclerc

Light And Darkness

houses house bodies
bodies house life

life houses souls
souls house light

light shrinks from darkness
darkness douses light...

yet Light overcomes darkness
with spiritual sight the beginning was darkness
darkness again at the end
awaiting those who despise Light - -
Light's gift of love for all men

yes, Light overcomes darkness
with love's perfect sight

Five Senses In Love

Touch of thin silk
the color rose
bed steeped in the
scent of her repose

these call to his senses
and sensing him near
she pulls him close
pressing lips to his ear
