Here I am proudly clutching my copy of Melissa Fondakowski’s wonderful book of poems Impatiens. Melissa, AKA, Poet With A Day Job has worked tirelessly on this collection and I am so excited to have my own copy. Melissa has an original, versatile voice, weaving her imagery into a dynamic texture, exulting in life with an unfailing sense of grace.
I will treasure these poems and am grateful to have met a like-minded person like Melissa on the internet. It has been a privilege to share her creative process. Thank you, Internet. You receive a lot of criticism for your myriad shortcomings but in many other ways you succeed in bringing people together. Merci beaucoup!
