    Hi Michael...your piece, 'Just A Moment', says it all about those kind of days. You have a very gifted way with words. I look forward to an upcoming book from you.

    Michael,
    Just read your 'Fingertip to Fingertip' poem, very nice. I thoroughly resonated with it's world-wide affirmation of connection...it is indeed a real thing, a miracle of our mdern age. Where would we be today if this form was available to Shakespear? Finally, this poem reminded me of mine entitled Face to Faith, if you recall that from your earlier gracious reading of my stuff...

    regards,

    Darrell

    Hello Michael,
    I know I've been 'quiet', as you said in your warm note. I wish I could say it was a creative 'quiet', but it's a disgusted 'quiet'. This website is really beginning to bug me and I'm thinking of finding a new 'home' for my poetry. The pop-ups are incredibly annoying, the fact that you don't really have a place to post proper notes to people is annoying, and this latest problem with losing everything posted since June is the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back... if you would like to talk, my email is cjheck@barkingspiderspoetry.com.
    Take care, my poet friend.
    Warmest regards,
    CJ

Best Poem of Michael Shepherd

Love Love Love

Oh it's so easy to say -

'Give what you think you lack -
You feel unloved? Then give love, and love, and love...'...

On the other hand -
Do you have any better advice?
