Lesley-Anne I am also a fan of your work, so well done on being selected. Love the poem and the imagery - right up my particular street writing-wise. Love, Anne. PS can I recommend Melanie Kerr and Diana Kay's work, both Brits, and I think they have something.
PS when IS your book coming out?

This is really a neat poem. I'm hooked.
Now this was a really good poem. Wow!
Leslie Anne, you have an incredible gift! Each new piece you write captivates me and this one more than others. Thanks for sharing your gifts with us on FW.
I really like this analogy, you have effectively brought the essence of that feeling of a poem stirring just under the surface and given it vision! Nice imagery, nice job!
