It's always an honor to hear from the writers whose works I feature here on this blog. Their comments (negative or positive) reassure me that there are real persons behind the art and sentiments I deem so worthy of my reading time and yours. The following is a comment from Guyanese poet, Balwant Bhagwandin, whose soul-wrenching collection of poems titled I Hear Guyana Cry I have featured on this blog (see sidebar labelled "signifyin' Guyanese writers").
It is a mighty comfort to know that others have heard my cries for my homeland. With each hour, each day since these poems were written, the cries have become more desperate and despairing with no sight of relief. Much thanks for your kind comments, reviews and dissemination of my poems.
Thanks also for the great job you are doing.
