    The most striking feature of Simon's poetry is that it is highly inspirational...! His pen name 'inspirational poet' is not an appendage or decoration to his name, but in spirit he is motivational. With a few delightful and inspirational poems, he has left an indelible mark on poem hunter and he is loved and acclaimed by quite a large number of fellow poets. May he continue to be a poet of renown!

    Howard Simon, is one of the greatest motivational poet of our times. His poems are brimming with love, hope and positive incentives to live a complete life. I love his philosophy which is Yogic in nature. To make continuous effort, without deviation, until you reach your goal.
    I am highly inspired by his poems and hope to read all his poems.
    Howard, I wish you the very best in life. Be blessed!

    ‘I Choose The Mountain~ ‘, ‘~the Power Of A Tear~’, and ‘~something Big’ (to name a few) are some of his invaluable pieces of poetry that are works of class and timeless! He is a great poet in modern English Poetry’. His significant contribution to the field of literature and to this wonderful world of Poem Hunter is noteworthy! I wish him all success in his life!

    Howard Simon is not only a great poet but also a great man, very receptive and kind hearted to fellow poets! He believes in quality of works and praises poems of fellow poets without any tinge of jealousy! I have read some of his poems and reviewed just a few of them! How tough it is to review a great man’s works! I enjoy the challenging task of reviewing his great pieces of poetry!

    I read Howard Simon's poem entitled, 'I choose the mountain'. I am fascinated with this poem..A great inspirational poem...I choose, I choose the mountain..With all its stress and strain..Because only by climbing..Can I rise above the plain. A person should always welcome difficulties, hardship and all challenges to raise his bar to make his/her life meaningful...A great poet..!

Best Poem of Howard Simon

~ I Choose The Mountain~

The low lands call
I am tempted to answer
They are offering me a free dwelling
Without having to conquer

The massive mountain makes its move
Beckoning me to ascend
A much more difficult path
To get up the slippery bend

I cannot choose both
I have a choice to make
I must be wise
This will determine my fate

I choose, I choose the mountain
With all its stress and strain
Because only by climbing
Can I rise above the plain

I choose the mountain
And I will never stop climbing
I choose the mountain
And I shall forever be ...

Read the full of ~ I Choose The Mountain~

~the Power Of A Tear~

Pounds of pain punctured my progress
Tons of trouble terminated my tranquility
Swarms of stress subtracted my substance
My heart exploded like a thousand thunders
My mind melted and my spirit splintered
Hanging by a thread destined to burst

I tried to wash away the wounds with words
But the stains were deeply dyed in concrete colors
