The editor of Uut Poetry, where I am a regular, wrote a pretty long blog post explaining what makes one of my poems work. I'm flattered and a little unsettled, because despite the fact that I make a point to never explain what I am trying to do, he nailed it.

Yep, it sure is a good feeling to have someone appreciate our work.

Keep up the creativity.

Yes, it's good to know when someone is on the same wavelength, especially when that someone is an editor.

It's interesting that the points made could have been part of a discussion from any time in the past 100 years.

I find it more disconcerting when my work is praised by someone who has completely misread my intent.
