Many Thanks MLK!! I've been away from Poetry Soup during this year, as I've been preparing and finalizing the manuscript for my second book of poetry, which should be released by my published during early 2020. After I get my second book released, I will be back to posting. (Also currently working on short stories and a novella too!!) Cheers and Best, Gary

Many Thanks Ann!! I really appreciate your note!! I plan to write more poetry in the future. However, I am right in the middle of finalizing the manuscript of my second book for publication, which covers my poetry spanning 2014-2018. Once I get this new book published and on the way, I will be back full-force writing and posting once again. Formal publishing always takes time. Best Always, Gary

Hello Terry, Many Thanks for your very kind words here. I've found over the years that sometimes the Tanka or certain Dactyl poetic formats are ideal for certain themes that focus on one thing. I'm always experimenting with different formats even with poems I've not yet posted to Poetry Soup. I've been away too during year as I've been preparing my second book of poetry for upcoming publication. Cheers and Best Always, Gary

Hello Carole, Many Thanks for your read of my Tanka here, and for your most generous comments. My take on "Magnanimous" in this Tanka was to describe a type of person that most of us would want to aspire to be or to be like. Best Wishes Always, Gary

Hello Arturo, Merry Christmas wishes to you too!! And thanks also for your comment about learning from me via my poetry. I do try, and I do my best to be professional in all I do. This poem is my last poem for this year. And, I will be away from Poetry Soup for a few months into the new year, as I prepare my second book of poetry manuscript for publication during Spring 2019. I shall start back with Poetry Soup next year after my new book is published and on the street!! Cheers and Best Always, Gary (P.S. I enjoy your poetry too -- immensely!!)
