Elizabeth H. House, Managing Director of Dorrance Publishing says, "Your poetry presents a collection exploring the layers of emotion often defining the human condition. You incorporate an understanding of certain spiritual principles, frequently citing faith as a means whereby a person might overcome even the most daunting of perceived obstacles. Along the way, you highlight qualities relating to courage, loyalty, and love in various forms."  Ms. House went on to comment on various poems by Poetic Flow, stating..."Several selections emphasize the notion of cultural identity such as 'A-Z Black American Poem' in which you use letters of the alphabet as a kind of anagram to define aspects of the title idea. Other poems such as 'This Thing Called Life' and 'Think About It' envision a virtual link between the earthly and the divine.  Also your poem 'In The End' refers to life as a {learning experience}, from the pain normally accompanying loss to the strength that may come through faith, friendship, or family.  Overall your poetry offers a designation to mark phases of journey's as well as to enlighten and provoke thought for the readers who may be following a similar path."
