|I'm still reading you my friend; though my present labor prohibits frequent visits... with each visit, I am overwhelmed by your talent... I so enjoyed the way you metaphorically expressed this journey by means of sailing to get to a place called redemption! Blessings! Janice Beaty Springs|

|There are so many thoughts 'attacking' my brain as read and re-read this incredible poem. It is JUST the right poem at JUST the right time for me. God always points me in the direction that I need to go and when I need to be there. I have been away from the Den for way tooooo long. Your poem is exactly what I need. Tak care and God bless you, my friend.|

You Present so vivid!!!

|A true poetic gem with a soulful metaphor. It begins with great energy in that bridging of "disappointment and lament"... then, there is this feeling of meditation and introspection, a quiet moment to be in touch with oneself. Redemption, a strong word, both meaningful and mysterious. Thank you for sharing Jon.

|A most powerful allegory as one circumnavigates the forever changing seas of life.
I guess in Dover, Kent, they've literally done this, by digging a tunnel under the sea.

|Well done my friend...after just doing a collab with Christine Alwin along a nautical theme (Adrift/Anchor) this one is easy to relate to.

|What a deeply profound and personal journey into which you have allowed us to glimpse this sailor's soul!
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|For me, there's the suggestion of escape,
escape from what's unworthy and worthless,
escape to something morally valuable
and to a wished-for harmony where the soul
is at peace.
This reaches me within, Jon, My Friend;
i feel its prayer.
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|The mood and atmosphere of this poem seeps into my very bones, Jon. I feel I can know this soul intimately from only this briefest of cameos that you present because it is a state, a condition of being that perhaps prevails throughout navigating the waters of life that we are constantly cast upon. It also speaks to me of the constant "closeness" of the attitude of prayer, conscious or unconscious which, irrespective of calm or stormy waters, is perhaps an underpinning posture that keeps us questing and seeking answers to the drift of a journey we have no choice but to engage in. Powerful work and strong capture. Plumb deep and find peace! xx|
