Honorable Mention, Mellen Poetry Contest 'Hiroshima'
"Insight into the parameters of man's inhumanity to man is the essence of Hiroshima. There is also the essence of the need to march down a Utopian course toward a secure and serene future. Hiroshima denounces violence and announces an underlying need for understanding, kindness, warmth and love in our human relationships." - P DeRitis
