I am new to Mike’s work… and I just got struck by a thought.

TeriJo, your instinct is excellent !

I am no expert either, but I know what I like. In my opinion he is a very good poet. What he conjures with the words resonates very much with me.

It is not your fault you have not seen his work . Yet everything you said he should do… once you see it , you will understand how right you were.

Except he has done that all already.

Rhyme is just … as I said before. A game for him . Or like the scales for a piano player. A technical excercise.

Sorry …a bit scrambled text. Circumstances….☺
