Chris D Aechtner

Every now and then
life creates a gem of a human being,
a gem of genuineness
a body of truth, sincerity
written into sublime poetry.
And like all that is good
upon this planet, a situation
that creates reactions from those
usually, one eyed opinionated bigots
those full of self importance,
able to sweep all conception
bar their own out of existence.
So this Canadian genius
like the setting sun
has faded into the horizon,
no doubt to rise again somewhere,
after all the setting of the sun
and the rising of are perpetual,
and in his words not mine.
(*A perfect fusion of dark and light.)
Has I’m sure he is!

*Borrowed from his first poem

    This is such a fitting and touching tribute to a wonderful person and poet-- I distinctly remember one of your poems for my contests before mentioning Chris, you knew right away how he was a gem. He I believe, has only gotten better with his poetry, and I continue to wish him the best. Thanks for passing by my poems. Continue writing your own wonderful and thought provoking poems, Harry, I've always admired your work!

    Harry, ol' Boy, I don't deserve a dedication such as this! I am humbled....'tis you who deserves dedications, my older brother from another mother. I'll drop in here and there, but overall, my poetic endeavors have become too intimate for public forums. Harry, you've been good to me from day one, and I won't ever forget that. I am not a genius, but a rogue romantic, a lover of life. Nothing more, nothing less....

    Harry, thank you very much for your wonderful comment... I have admired you and your poetry through the years... Under Pd or Skat... you are loved by both of us... and you know exactly what I mean. My sis and I hold you very dearly. You are always one of Skat's favorite poets, she's always watching... And of course I look up to you as well... xox~PD

    this was such a lovely thing for you to do. His poems are still here, right? I do hope he will read this one day. Not sure if he would ever see a note from me at Soupmail these days. Have you talked with him recently at all? He is one smart cookie!!

    Hi Harry, this is a thoughtful dedication. I saw two poems posted by Chris last night but didn't have time to comment. I see now they're gone. I hope this means he is coming back or maybe I'm seeing things...hugs, Rhonda
