Thank you very much for your comment on my poem. I love hearing from people about what they think about it. And yes, I was surprised at how many forms there are when I learned them at school. Again, many thanks!

hey Jerry, I just started following you on Twitter. I see we are sympatico on many areas. I was also thinking about how much I've enjoyed your poems here, and seeing you're a Beatles fan, I thought I'd share one of our more popular discussions from way back

Was just reading over some previous conversation on Diabetics who run Marathons - I think Inspirational Badass would be a good term - I know you've helped me along the way, which I greatly appreciate. Hope to see you at IMAZ (still not sure of my plans - hopefully today).
