  2. Que bom ler poemas escritos por um poeta brasileiro! Morei 40 anos no Brasil (Espirito Santo, Bahia, Tocantins, Recife, Rio) e estou com muitas saudades. O poema sobre “Pariaiso me lembra o Espirito Santo que conheci em 1969.

  3. Obrigado, Arthur Powers, Paraíso (Paradise) era o nome da fazenda de meu avô, em Viçosa – Minas Gerais. Atualmente moro em Formiga, interior de Minas Gerais e nunca saí do Brasil, exceto online, remetendo meus poemas para publicação em revistas literárias de língua inglesa. Planejo publicar nos Estados Unidos em 2017 meu primeiro livro de poemas, que se chamará – Lonely Sailor – Um grande abraço.
