    Linda is a very good modern poet. She is very versatile in her skills... Most of her poems are very entertaining and extremely readable... She does write thought provoking ones too, In that sense she has what it takes to arouse the reader’s mind’s eye! ! ! .... And she has what it takes to make the reader move with her lines.. Some of her poems seem to ooze out emotions….
    As a person she is a priceless friend too… I mean some of her poems do reflect what a lovely lady she is…..
    If any want some fun, I should recommend start reading her by turning to her poem“
    'WOMAN OF THE NIGHT “
    That’s great fun, hilarious..! ! ! !

    Best wishes and with lots of love

    Talking about a person who knows her work..this lady right here. I love your work and it's so inspirational, mostly because you have skills, expirience and whatever else it takes to be where you are with writing.

    I've read your work and shall continue

    The other comments you shall read here about this poetess will express
    the personal feelings they felt at reading her poetry. Many of them will
    have a difficult time explaining why her poetry has such an effect on them.
    After all, it appears as if hers is similar to the poetry of so many others
    who may give them the same effect occasionally. The most telling of
    these comments will be those saying that they shall return here to read
    again.
    Whatever the comments, they are just a simple manifestation of what
    they are really experiencing. That , for which , they have no words.
    For what they are doing is reading 'real' poetry. Not what someone
    calls poetry, not what someone says reads like poetry, not what an
    academic advocates as qualified to be called poetry. No, this is what
    a greater power than resides on earth declared to be poetry long before
    it had the name. Her written words are not modern poetry or Whitman
    poetry, Poe poetry, Byron poetry, Islamic poetry, or poetry by any
    description of man. Least of all, this one. So I shall not even try. The
    true seeds of poetry are written in our minds, not in our hearts.
    Before poetry enters our heart, it must be heard by our minds. Our
    minds hear poetry through the sound of the words, not their meanings.
    The great poets can speak this language so that it reaches our hearts
    with meaning after passing through our minds with the sound of their words.
    By such means is poetry defined and by such a great poetess as this is
    God able to reach the heart as well as the mind of man. Linda Ori , is
    all that a poetess or any true artist can ever be.

    By way of her poetry Linda somehow brings out (variously) the atmosphere, the emotions, the colours, the scene/s. Always with impact. The impact is often one of senerity. I feel peaceful yet pensive after reading one of Linda's poems. And one is never enough.
    Linda, my hat off to you.

    I found sadness of her poems like pastel drawings.

    Not just the words, but the spirit behind them: lovely!

Best Poem of Linda Ori

' How Do I Reach You?

If I could put it into words -
All that my heart is feeling,
Would they help to warm your heart
Or would they send you reeling?

There are so many emotions
So many words to say,
But which ones would you savor
And which ones throw away?

I live in indecision -
Which formula is best?
Overwhelm you with my thoughts
Or give your heart a rest;

It's difficult to hold inside
This flood of raw emotion
That threatens now to drown me
Like a shipwreck on the ocean;

I would die a thousand deaths
To think you never knew
Just how ...

Read the full of ' How Do I Reach You?

Sad Green Eyes

You look at me with sad green eyes,
I'm overcome with feeling-
Such deep emotion they disguise,
Yet send my senses reeling; They speak to me of loneliness
And feelings unexpressed,
Of hopes and dreams unrealized
And love gone uncaressed; They cry to me of urgency
To experience it all-
But here you are in limbo
