The Mind[less] Muse

The Poet By Day

Here are a few readers’ comments:

Your use of language feels less like mastery and more like partnership…as though sometimes your words might participate–seduce and scorn, dovetail and derail each other. It’s a measured dance without set steps: Intriguing.

-Madeleine Marzio, author

Lance’s writings are remarkable. I’ve followed him for several years now, and he has improved his works to excellence. They’re ripe with action and a beautiful way to live in a world unknown to many.

-Barbara Kasey Smith, published poet

This is so beautiful…Being a resident in a farming area for 35 years with family farms now few and far between, their ancestry still blows in the wind and I hear their voices- the poem speaks to me. It is an exquisite personification of emotion. It’s so well written.

-Anna Waldherr, writer

I highly recommend this site to anyone who loves poetry. Lance’s ability to capture the moment and use detail to convey mood is beyond compare.

-Lynley Fermanis, poet

I’m gobsmacked actually… another level of imagery, atmosphere, suggestion….absolutely superb.

-Polly, poet on ‘rocks and bones’ site

Not a narrative REM stage dream, more the alpha-beta stage of pictures and archetypes as we descend. This is such a beautiful stage of sleep overlooked by Freud and other literature. You have caught that glimpse when the brain has is neither in the active tasks of day or the random problem solving of REM, but is just suspended in being with the moon-reflected solar winds, surrounded only by ancestral images devoid of story- and that moon wheeling. Stunning.

-Lona Gynt, author.

    Hello Lance, this is a beautiful presentation of your blog as you let your readers speak about your exquisite work. As for me, a creative person writing humble poetry attempts, a few short stories, book reviews plus a few dances combined with poems, I am so flattered by the praise you have given me. Thank you again.

    I guess there is a problem with your site. I can read “If there were only the falling snow” on the home page – but when I click on it to leave a comment, I get an error page…
