"As a sculptor takes a piece of clay and fashions it into a thing of beauty, so does Richard Doiron create things of beauty with words. This is his gift, a gift not squandered on this prolific writer - he uses it during his every waking moment.

Richard Doiron's words come from the heart...the best gifts meant to be shared, and this is what he does; he shares his gift for words and, in so doing, he shares himself.  His words are nothing less than a journey through the human heart."

"Quite some time ago now, I had the distinct honour of encountering Richard Doiron, a poet of note whose work has been published alongside that of Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama. We discovered that we shared many common views of the world.

Richard's work never ceases to amaze me. He is quite possibly one of the most prolific poets ever, and the quality of his work is on a level rarely achieved in the world of poetry. With his mastery of the language, he can enlighten, touch, inspire, and give the reader pause for thought. He can deal with the subjects of love, peace, spirituality, and philosophy using impeccable meter and rhyme. Regardless of the format chosen, his messages are always conveyed in a manner that is unique, fresh, and innovative.

It is my distinct privilege to have the opportunity to share this website with him."

"It is always one of the most important duties in one's life to be able to express oneself in proper context, and at the same time know to apply wisdom and sensibility to one's opinion.

If I die tomorrow, I will have been a better man, because I will have known Richard Doiron and his little world, not as well as I would like to, even after a number of years, but well enough still to know what a gem it is he represents.

Richard encompasses true compassion and conscience, and takes the time and effort to not compromise anything and to be concise and crystal clear in what he conveys, at times being quite humorous in his quiet and unassuming ways.

I am honored to be a part of his circle, and have yet to grasp the very essence of being someone welcomed in that circle."

Luc Majno, poet-photographer-musician
Caraquet, New Brunswick, Canada

"Richard Doiron has mastered the English language. His poetry is a superior form of expression. Such is the beauty of his mind."

Danielle Gibbs, poet
New Orleans, La.,U.S.A.

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.
