Profile of Gregory Wm. Gunn

Gregory Wm. Gunn

Windsor, On., Canada
My modest genesis as poet began by basically hearing melodies in my head then vocally projecting whatever lyrics occurred to my then-6 year old mental capacity. During this stage of development, the inquisitive, wide-eyed youngster was occupied with pastels, graphites, watercolours, etc., rendering mainly natural landscapes, but sometimes delving i ...

Right Greg. Where the feck are your poems? Come on back and play with us... But if not, the wildpoetryforum looks alright - though I doubt if there is a better site on the net than this one in terms of interface (when it isn't log-jammed) - there has been some migration in that direction. I've applied for membership - get vetted too! It has a posting area for experienced poets who want serious critting of their work. There is also forum moderation, and a one or two a day posting limit to ensure that others get a chance to read new posts... If you do stay gone then you are a considerable loss to the site... many other good poets have gone too of course, and perhaps it was a step in the right direction for them... there probably comes a time when ambitious poets can benefit from moving. ... Sad to see your page blank too. Metamorphhh's was the last big loss that I'm aware of... the very best to you Greg, wherever you're headed.... jim

Mr Gunn has had me reaching for the dictionary so many times I've got repetitive strain injury. But he's worth it. I made the mistake at first of thinking his was poetry for the brain, but after the numerous re-readings his work deserves, I have realised it feeds the soul quite nicely too. Here's to you Greg!

Greg is one of the finest poets I have had the pleasure of encountering. To-the-spot, on-the-ball pieces. Harsh and always fair; always engaging his audience. A unique way of painting his picture; the reader is entirely drawn. I commend GWG to anybody with a brain. And I applaud you, sire. t x

Greg, I sure do want to expand on what Gina already said, but she said it best - you have a tough exterior, but inside you are one of the kindest and most generous guys I have ever known. Not only is your work great, but you have encouraged me to become better myself, and I appreciate it so much. Keep writing, my dear friend!

I met Greg through his 'Another Shot at Philosophy! ' number which I initially took offence to. But the poem's message (as I saw it) was just about the only criticism that I could raise against it: Greg is a fountain of rich, delicious, free-flowing words that dance in your ears for hours after you've read them. Read his 'I Re-discovered You Tonight', for example, and tell me if it doesn't sweep you off your feet! I adore Greg's writing. I'd also like to say that as a person, they don't come much warmer or more generous. Greg, I'm honoured to know both you and your work. Take my best. Gina.
