One Day the Sun: A Collection

A collection of poems entered for the Attys awards, 2012. The judges saw fit to shortlist this work and I thank them for this recognition, although what matters to me above all is to engage with an audience. Recognition helps but is only a means to this end. Greatest thanks go to all those who read the work. I hope it leaves a positive impression. I also took great pleasure and inspiration in reading many of the other collections entered for the Attys, including some fine collections that did not make the shortlist.

I have never enjoyed a political poem quite as much as this one.  The many allusions throughout the poem give it a mythical quality.
Wow!, this is amazing!!!, i love to write poems as well... Mind maybe reading one and giving me some tips?
Beautiful and powerful. War is never nice and sometimes we can forget how many people can be left hurt by just one death.
I've read a lot of poetry about mirrors, but I've got to say, this is the best by far. Simply astounding... :)
you   blend myth, religion, politics and power  to create a powerful portrait of a world trapped by a "golden chain" waiting to be freed--
excellent. K
The defiance that comes through in your poem sure mirrors that of the widow. Good for her. And u.
