Welcome, What else but a poem can strike you down and lift you up at the same time? Poems are the oxygen in the blood of being. Poesy is a way that reflects The Great Way of Dao – sometimes the reflection is dark, sometimes light. I will be posting Diamond Poems and/or other poetry weekly at this site and invite comments and posts of Diamond Poems from other poets and writers. James P.S.
