Hello Elizabeth

 

The pleasure was entirely mine. When Maureen emailed me about the prize, I surfed the net for John Donahue's poems and found one that so beautiful and filled with hope. And I thought about how you take care to visit blogs of fellow writers and leave your impressions there and always about what you loved about the poem. I am sure that must be so encouraging and uplifting to the writers. I am sure you will enjoy the gift. Here is an excerpt of the poem Beannacht written by Donahue.

when the canvas frays

in the curach of thought

and a stain of ocean

blackens beneath you,

may there come across the waters

a path of yellow moonlight

to bring you safely home.

 

Enjoy the book. I know you will!

Cheers

Padmavani
