Friends I’ve never seen


You read while I’m sleeping or looking away.

In the morning I find your footprints in the poetry.

Imagine your voices, like sunlight on water.


Thank you.

  1. Chris,

    It’s an amazing thing, isn’t it? I’ve been a writer all my life but academic stuff- articles, book chapter, and even a book. But until I started writing my blog, I had never known what it was like to feel the real support of fellow writers and poets and artists, as I do know. Friends I’ve never seen.

    I cannot imagine ever going back. This is where I belong, feeling the pull of the work, and carried forward by the amazing kindness of those who take their precious time to read what I wrote and to leave me their footprint.

    Chris, you captured perfectly those feelings in yet another gem of micro-poetry.

    Thank you.


  2. There are times when a poem can capture a feeling far more efficiently than prose could ever hope to, as you have done so perfectly here. I thank you for it.

  3. Hello fellow Canadian Chris:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking some posts. It gave me a chance ro find your blog and check out your creativity through poetry, drawing and sculpture. You are talented, my friend (to be?) unseen.
