Princess

Today we welcome a new contributor to Open Writing, noted Canadian poet Michael B Poyntz.

Here's what the critics said of Michael's poetry collection Dusk To Dusk:
An outstanding contemporary collection of poems about love - from a lover to a lover, a parent to a child, a grandmother to her grandchild, a nation to its fallen firemen.

Through a landscape of over 70 poems this collection will capture readers of many ages and cultures.

And here's Michael's message to his readers:
I believe that we are all poets at heart! I invite you to explore that part of your soul. If these poems engage you please feel free to write down your thoughts here. Nervous? Write those thoughts down as your secret...

Now read one of Michael's poems.
