His work has taught me about poetry, about writing poetry and how vibrant language captures the emotions we all share. I searched for a quote from his works to include in this blog from among the many I have copied into my journal; copies to keep and to re-read and to study. The searching process has reaffirmed that his work inspires and will continue to inspire me.
The search has netted no one quote to share but many which touch my heart and make an ache in the pit of my stomach over his passing.
I extend sympathy to his family and friends and hope they take comfort in his continued existence through the written word. As, do I.
