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.
-Laura M. Bailey/writer
A pinnacle poet. Reading, I find myself, nose pressed between pages of Yeats, Longfellow, Browning, Whitman. His poetry, I see as flowing streams, hear as melody… the words like prayers tuck themselves within all the cracks within my heart.
-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.
