OKSANA MAKSYMCHUK's poems.... compelling.
Maren O. Mitchell(Tuesday, May 15 18 12:42 am BST)
Thank you, John, for including my two poems among such a wide variety of other poems. I am grateful!

Alicia Hoffman's poems are incandescent.

John, discerning selection of Dale's jazzy elegy. The title is, itself, a poem. Then, there is "his horns ... cool in their cases." Music from front to back.
John, greetings from Australia. I came here to read the review of Anthony Costello's 'Angles and Visions' and stayed to check out May's poems. Most enjoyable. It appears you specialise in insightful
poems written carefully but not pretentiously. There's a clarity, and a welcome absence of mannerism. I'll link you at my poetry blogzine <a href="http://unevenfloorpoetry.blogspot.com"
target="_blank">Uneven Floor</a> (submissions always welcome!) and perhaps send you a few of my own poems. If you have a mailing list, please add me. (An RSS or Atom feed would be even
better, but I can't see one.) Keep up the good work.

I'm pierced by the delicately balanced trip between past and present irresponsibility and responsibility of "From Car to Schwinn and Back Again" by Pia Taavila-Borsheim.

December has brought us yet another fine issue. You continue to select and share excellent poems with all of us. I'm honored to be part of this one.
A lovely journal--thank you! Enjoyed the poem about bones in the museum: vivid! Also really appreciate that you consider previously published poetry and that you offer a list of contests and writing
opportunities. May all those efforts bring you good karma!

Sarah White's poems knocked my socks off First the left sock, then the right sock.

Usha's poem is the female tsunami; Marion's pair elemental Britain. I referred two friends to The Lake; both commended Rob.

Maren Mitchell's poems are deft, surprising, intellectual, yet universal in their reach. Superb.
Maren,Your intelligence is a bright light. Your alphabet poems are stunning. Thanks.

How clever to write poems about an alphabet letter. Interesting! All the best, Glenda Barrett
Maren O. Mitchell(Wednesday, September 02 15 06:41 pm BST)
I'm impressed by the high quality of poems in this issue - all those by Bone, Jean's spot on "Exercise no. 38," the smooth flow of "Conveying the Blessing," Larkin's magnetic "Inhale," and the
startling and touching "Lindow Man." Personally, I am most intrigued by Changming's vision of "Y," as opposed to my own vision.

Regarding Maren O. Mitchell's alphabetic poems:
"Y, The Philosophical Letter"
Y is it found in Greek but not in Latin?
Y, the infant's wail becomes the toddlers query and the elder's muse.
M, the earliest consonant we can muster--the hum of satisfaction and desire.
