Far below
Was I...as a child
........Eons ago

James B. Earley is very wonderful and talented poet of international fame. When he starts touching the pen, the mountain speaks and sings and the paper dazzles with his golden word. The coat of emotion of a reader grabs the poetic rain done by this poet. His poems are deeply natural basing upon his perception. He wonderfully expresses the childhood memories and realizes that soul dwells within human body. Dreams of trillions qualities of his bring billion dollars of joy!
