    Have tried to give you a well deserved comment but it doesn't seem to have appeared in your comments List.which is very annoying. I found the poem sudden death of Autumn very good. The two coffee lines seem a bit out of step with the rest of the poem but it is a very good poem with lovely storylines. Kind regards, nice to hear from you again. Ernestine Northover

    I have just discovered a very fine poet. His African Rhythms is stunning. I shall be paying him many visits.
    As Pam says, a true talent.

    I felt like I was there watching horses and feeling the wind!

    Way to go!

    Very nice poem with an uplifting rhythm and very good rhyming. To the person that could not figure out the mention of the horses, I copied those lines so I could comment:
    'But only one vast stretch of blue
    Where foamy horses run.'
    I could be wrong, but that made me feel that you were talking about the ocean and the horses were the way the waves foam and break. Very nice imagery.

    I tell you: I've read, enjoyed, loved many poems and poets here at Poemhunter. But it's never occurred to me, somehow, to download, print out, and carry around with me the 'complete works' e-book of anyone-until today, when I began at the beginning of Tan's poems and was dazzled, refreshed, utterly charmed, and given new eyes-AND ears-by his rainbow rhymes, his wonderworld rhythms, and the vast, African skies full of birds, that may be flushed and flutter up at absolutely any step.

A Brief Romance

.Between you and me
Is a long stretch of sea
Preventing us
From communicating with each other
Properly.

My words fly through the air
And settle here and there,
Scattered like pigeons on the sand;
And boats which swiftly sail
With messages, in hail
And storm are wrecked before they land.

Bridges were built,
But with deep currents of guilt
They totter and fall;
Reason says, 'It's time to part.'
But can reason subdue passion's heart?
Silence, like sheets of snow, covers all.

Truly, my dear,
In the span of a year, ...
