I have been around Lit for several years now and have read, written and commented on hundreds of poems. I must admit that I have tended to avoid 'classical' types of poetry, possibly especally sonnets! I have beauifully bound copies of Shakespere's work and admire his technique but actually I get lost in the language at times and it is probablt 'struggling' to read these that has reduced my enjoyment of his works.

Recently I got drawn into a certain poets work posted on Lit finding that I could read his work with enjoyment in the 'sonnet' form. The subject matter and presentation made me 'love' the sonnet style for the first time ever! I think I made a comment about me finding his work akin to 'Shakespere for the common man'.
It is the content of poetry, as in any written art form, that is important and I find this poet's content and presentation possibly the best I have ever come across. In a reply to my comments a mention was made of his web site which I visited and ordered a copy of his book that I thought might give me a few tops on this style.
I received this to day and have read about a dozen of his poems that are included in it, I have never read ANY book containing poetry that every single piece I have read I have loved! He has transformed the sonnet for me. He has shown me what a real interpreter of thoughts into poetry can do. I am writing this before I read this book from cover to cover in the hope that others may be aware of this gem that is available for consumptiom.
The book is written by Vee Bdosa and is called 'Writing Sonnets'
If anybody else has read a copy of this book I would appreciate your comments on this if only to assure me that others on site are aware of its exsistence and the pleasure and development of our chosen artform that is given within.
Thank you Vee Bdosa....
The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.
