  1. I’ve been reading your poems – they shine with beauty,
    a very lovely thing – something I’m very thirsty for,
    and so I am grateful to you for bringing them out
    for us to see.

    I also love your description of yourself –
    I feel as if I’m reading about someone in
    an ancient place
    and then I am so happy that I know you
    NOW
    and in person!

  2. Thank you for your kind comments regarding my poems. I have been enjoying yours as well. It is refreshing to read some WELL-CRAFTED nature poetry, for a change.

    As you said, finding excellent poets in the realm of the blogosphere is difficult, but all the more rewarding and satisfying when you do!

    I am glad you found me, and I in turn have found you. And I am most interested to read more of your work.

  3. Yoo hoo…I don’t want to sully your poetry with news and do feel free to delete this but I wanted to give you a heads up:

    Yes, she. (!)

  4. MashaAllah. As salam ‘aleykum wa rahmatullahi qa barakatuh.

  5. Keep up the good work; you write with a strong sense of spirituality and a conviction that echoes off the language.

  6. Dear PBS, I have started a new blog Thinking Screens, entirely devoted to cinema and my teaching experiences. Will be glad if you visit it. My earlier blog is not closed, but is in hiatus.
