I've long admired the mystical quality of Richard Doiron's poetry and words as they continue to bubble up from the infinite depths of creativity to flow and sparkle unbidden from his sacred pen - or keyboard. In the words of Maya Angelou: "You cannot use up creativity. The more you use the more you have." Richard not only has an inborn flair for words and abundant creativity but a deep love for what written words convey: love, desire, compassion, awareness, friendship, as well as justifiable indignation. His words, whether in poetry or in prose, speak profoundly from the fount of wisdom that is the human heart.
