    Mike,
    You are a poet with right blends. A good hold over the devices applied, an ambience for all and a thematic brilliance in reaching out to the reader each time etc make you a poet of prime kind.
    When I requested you to send a message on how you felt about them, you sat back and wrote a detailed and convincing report on a few of them.I esteem your opinions, As for the popularity criteria, I feel the more precious pearls are always found lying deep somewhere.
    I honour your talent and am humbled down by your message.
    Keep writing sir...

Best Poem of Michael Pruchnicki

38th Parallel

Once I lived in a village not far
from the thirty-eighth parallel
near Kaesong, in fact

The snow that February fell for days
blowing horizontally to the ground
hills and paddy fields filling with drifts

We lived, ten of us, in a hut
that smelled of kimchee and garlic
we huddled together on the warm floor

The sergeant in charge was from Chicago
a big-mouthed Irish guy from the South Side
he talked constantly about his gang back home

The North Koreans who ran the prison camp
grew to dislike the sergeant and our guys
we ate less and worked...

Read the full of 38th Parallel

In The Midnight Sun

IN THE MIDNIGHT SUN

Gusts of wild wind rampaging
Frigate plows through great seas
Screeching birds aloft scavenging
Deaf to the lads below decks

Near rocky shores threatening
Deckhands work to bring her about
