Hi Sylvia,
Thanks for your kind comment about my criticism. As for my own poetry, sorry I don't write any. But I am an avid poetry reader. As you know, I enjoy reading your poetry even though I am critical of it from time to time. I'm glad you're open to criticism. Others have a difficult time with it and actually believe that if you don't engage in an activity yourself you have no right to engage in criticism of it. It's asinine logic, of course, because it means you shouldn't criticize politicians unless you are a politician, and you shouldn't criticize films unless you're a film-maker, etc. If you’re interested in some other amateur poets around here, some of the ones I think are pretty talented are Lenchen Elf, Richard Hansen, Sherrie Gonzalez-Kolb, Christine Magee, and others that don’t come immediately to mind.
