‘I BROKE MY LEG’ while reaching ‘FOR HER’..’SILHOUETTE’.
I managed today just one handful of her willowy (slim) figure to get.
My ‘SPIRIT’ may be slowing down; I may be (am!) ‘FEELING OLDER’.
But she is like a gem: “THE MOST BEAUTIFUL” “EMERALD”. I must hold her! !
Mj Lemon is not, I repeat not, afraid to think and write out of the box- -and what a liberating and frightening thing that can be! There is nothing that escapes his writer's eye. He has that basic ingredient in good writers- there is nothing that isn't grist for the mill- nothing is stagnant or loss to him- it is all part of life and as such can be turned to gain. And turn it he will.
He is awesome in his intelligence, in his humorous insight, and in his fascination with fitting structure to message. He is not afraid of the sharp demands of brevity and masters the form with his so well-chosen words. I have yet to read a poem of his that does not offer a thought for meditating upon.
All these things about him spell excellence.
M.j. holds me in the midst of his poetry with his flavour of diversity, I'm loving every moment of the journey. I'm wondering all along the path what's next, who or what will be around the corner, the intensity is fabulous and I'm surrounded by words, beautiful inviting words. M.j. is clearly one of my favourite poets and I do look forward to reading his work with a cup of tea to delight my morning read...Thank you M.j.
