Bindu, I've just read the first four poems on this list and let me make the following points: 1. the poet Archibald MacLeish says that a poem is an impulse, a glimpse, a cloudy glimpse and the labour of the poet is to create the form which will contain the relationship that turns the glimpse into image. You do that well. 2.If poetry teaches us how to talk to ourselves, you do that well. 3.what I try to do and I don't do it well-nor do you-is to change the way people experience their lives. You are good at description, but I'd like to see more beneath the surfact in your poetry-and mine.-Ron
