    Thank you. He is indeed most inspiring. We have maintained a 20 year friendship since I wrote that story.

This is a wonderful piece, Susan. Warm and inspiring, it put a huge smile on my face and reminded me of all that is good in the world. Thank you for this marvelous entry in the contest and sharing your story about a poet I am sure not many people aren't familiar with. I certainly wasn't, and it is always a splendid surprise to learn something new on any given day. I am excited now to read Mr. Arndell's work. Thank you for that gift.

Take care,
Bill

I really enjoyed this story, and love the fact that this dear man was receiving some recognition for his efforts. I don't think that poets receive a great deal of remuneration for their work, but I understand as a poet, that one writes because they are a writer. Beautifully done, excellent job, blessings, Roy

    Thank you. Yes, we writers all understand about being a writer. Mr. Arndell and I have maintained a friendship ever since I wrote that nearly 20 years ago.

Good luck in the contest. This is all very informative. I am not a poet and do not follow poets. I do like to absorb information of all sorts from all sources. This well written,

A really nice tribute to a Black artist you got to meet. I often think that people with major life issues make the best poets, and writers. There are a couple of grammatical errors in my opinion, but I hesitate. There are many more writers here with more knowledge to assist. Nice writing.

Well done, Susan. Sounds as though you found a real poet. Not much good poetry on FS now-a-days. Seems like it is just a way to pass the time. I am a serious poet as well. Poetry is love and like music helps the soul heal. Nancy:)

    Thank you, Nancy. Truth be told, I don't consider this man to be a GREAT poet, but it's what he does with his poetry that really touches me. Really, to have people roll down their window at a red light and ask for a poem....and he gives them one. Now, that's real soul sharing!

I enjoyed this piece very much. I especially liked the short poetic sequences in the body of prose, as a tribute to the poet. I also liked the taciturn nature of the poet - that reminds me so much of me. Are all writers like that? thank you for sharing.

    Thank you. I had lunch with Mr. Arndell and went to several poetry programs with him over the years and he was always very reserved. I guess he truly communicates soul to soul. I know he touched mine.

    Thank you. I think Fanstory is a great place to learn. I know I've learned a lot in the last six months. I hope you can find a poetry group where you live where you can meet with other poets.
