Comments about Sonya Florentino

    Sonya is one of the most amazing writers I've ever met across time. She holds her own; past, present and future. She writes timelessly, about subtle things that one might never notice, if not for her busy pen. You should attempt to read everything she has written here; because you won't find this much brilliance and honesty available in very many places today. And once you start to read her, you can never stop again; that is the spell and the special magic of Sonya. If reading the poems of anybody could make you a better writer yourself; it would have to be these poems of Sonya as much as anyone's; she can hold her own no matter the era or subject matter.
    As a human being she is that rare honest sort, that what you see is just what you get, and she never fails to amaze with deep insight, both as a writer and as a friend. But don't take my word on all this; much better to find out for yourself. (smile)

    Florentino...probably not Irish.
    However probably a person that
    is a truly expressive and really
    good writer.

    I so much enjoyed you body of work.

Best Poem of Sonya Florentino

Ode To Spring

It snowed today
Again
Like yesterday
And once more
Snow tomorrow

A harsh winter
That's what they say
Colder than it's ever been
Snow like we've never seen
Spring... it will be late

But I will wait, for like fate
Spring always follows
Spring always comes
Spring has never failed me

Even under 6 feet of sorrow
No matter how long I burrow
Spring somehow always finds me

Read the full of Ode To Spring

Red Sky

Your love for me is right
But I am paralysed
Out of breath, scared to death
The sky is turning red

Your love for me is true
As what I'm going through
My heart is full, love has ruled
The sky's no longer blue
