Hi James...Just read your poem 'Soldiers, Murders or Heroes'...wow...you have definitely caught the full magnitude of what this is all about...and what has been going on for the lifetime of man. I would say you have much thought in the form of words to share...this is certainly one of them...your stuff is very good... I have a few new poems on this site... 'A Friend' 'Cabernet Sauvignon' 'I Am The Deer' 'Her Eyes Told Me' Keep up the writing, James...then...when you feel it's right...gather your stuff and put them in your book of poetry...don't forget...you are a storyteller...you need to tell people...

Hi James...I just got your E mail. After reading it I went right to your poetry page on poemhunter. So far I have read just a few of your poems...I will definitely read them all. James...although I am no expert, from what I have read of your poetry I think you have a great gift in writing poetry. You convey very special thoughts that I think most of us have all gone through. I believe your poem about your grandfather is very special and the thought of giving your poem as tribute to your grandfather is precious. I lost my dad last February. I wish I had published my book of poetry before he died...but he died so suddenly. I look forward to reading future poetry from you, James. I hope one day you will publish your own book of poetry. You have a special gift... Sincerely, Lare Austin
