Hi Sir,
You had mentioned the dates,
What made you publish the poems within this single book?

KJ Francis

I tried to reply. But net failed.
Glad to know that you read my poems. I affix dates to check the development of my poems. Regarding the number of poems in one single book; I wanted it to be a serious affair. In fact my friend Fr Pius suggested that I publish a small collection. I already had that many numbers. My second collection may have some hundred mark. Already there are thirty four for it.
The characters in my poems are not phantoms. They are life-size characters. I might speak more. Fearing Net might fail me I send this now. More of it later. Francis K J

Dear Sona, I'll be only happy to answer any questions on any of my poems. Francis

KJ Francis

They are my reflections on what I see around- man or beast. They attain salvation as I look at them. This might be a tall claim. But I carve a niche for those insignificant men and women. And they attain pathetic glory. Francis

Sona

Thank you Sir, for your kind reply. Loved the poems.

KJ Francis

Dear Sona, rather than making an off the cuff remark I would like you to address some specific points/poems so that I can speak on it how I wrote it and why.
Musings does not imply run away thoughts. The musings are on specific objects for specific reasons. They become poetry as they are treated poetically under the stipulations of poetics. Thank you very much. Francis K J
