Helmore, Don

Don is an artist with words. His palette is mainly people and they inspire his verses. Starting with his World War 2 ventures in the Pacific, Don has been an out-reacher all his life. As Browning would have it: Ah but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for? Don’s poems are in line with that intriguing vision.                                                                                                                                                              JIM COULTER – Author

Within the covers of this intriguing book you will find poems exploring the many ways Don has found solace in his later life. His shrewd observations of the world, or that which he encounters daily are evidenced in poems which will intrigue, question and challenge. His need to also record the nuances of illness, the textures of life, love, and beauty give breadth to the wisdom of his writing.            MAREE SILVER –  Poet & Editor
