Mike – this was great. It's refreshing (although of course as usual, it nearly made me cry), but it was refreshing because it was from a child's point of view. Also, I like how you are able to write short poetry as well as lengthy ones – straight and to the point. Well done. And a Merry Christmas back to you and yours too.

Nice one Mike. I learn something new about Kokoda every day
Given any more thought to putting these in a self-published book??
flups23/03/2010 at 7:39 pm #103998
yea finished some 20 poems that give a good historical overview of
the Kokoda Campaign from 1st contact until the beach head battles..
life has got a bit busier now but i do hope to self publish the entire
series some time in the future. You will be one of the 1st to know
when it is done.

Another great read Mike. I never knew about this guy. Is the man in your poem your father? Grandfather? Your poetry not only is moving, but also one of informing as well – to which you write to this day – to tell people, to inform them, to move them and to educate them. Today, you have educated me. Thank you.

That sounds great Mike – sounds like a big task – but well worth the effort. I say go for it!
Also perhaps you could create your own anthology of poems – put them on your computer (if you haven't done so already), print them out & put them in a display folder with a cover page & a table of contents/index. You have so many that maybe you could divide them up into volumes (Volumes I, II & III etc) – a different colour folder for each volume.
