For free verse poetry to be memorable it must be original, passionate, emotional, honest, and deftly expressed. Enter Ramona E. Armato and "Do You See Me Now?", a slender, 80-page book of impressive lyrical prose and deftly executed poetry that takes as its diverse subject matter her difficult childhood, life's heartaches, good times and ill, and a faith that helped her cope with it all. 'Comfort Zone': You may say my heart is still wandering/Into depths of this and that.//You may say it cries in the middle of a/long, cold night.//My heart has a place today;/Yet even then it bears some scars.//You may say my soul can't test/Without a prayer to pray.//You may say my soul years/For the warmth of a summer's day.//I know this comfort zone - it is my compassionate friend:/my heart, my soul, my friend.
