Great poet, Immaculate writer, Juan takes the reader into his words and flies with them to the end. Wonderful imagination when needed and he also uses vivid images when recalling a memory. One of my personal favorites is Juan, keep up the grand work my brother. Always a pleasure reading your work. Atasha :)

I read a lot of your poems and I think your poetry style is wonderfully natural. It just flows and unfolds beauty in words and meaning. I like the way you write them like you are just conversing the reader.

Juan is a poet of intense abilities, he seems to see so much in life's happenings, in the world's movement, and then best of all he so articulately and wonderfully translates it all to us through his poetic vision. And we therefore are blessed to receive the fruits of his gift for writing. Read as much of his poetry as you can, you will be glad you did!
