"In Keepers Meet Questing Eyes, John Flynn provides us with a book of poems that explores the connections between the human and the natural world, between love and loss. This is a  book that engages the reader and shows us the often hidden parts of ourselves and our lives. Truly, the poems in this book are a blessing."

Maria Mazziotti Gillan, 
winner, AWP's George Garrett Award 
and the American Book Award



"I have sampled John's poems with pleasure."

Richard Wilbur, 
former U.S. Poet Laureate, 
Pulitzer Prize 1957 and 1989, 
on Moments Between Cities



"John Michael Flynn speaks of real and recognizable characters. I recommend his work to all readers, not just so-called specialists in poetry."

Sydney Lea, 
Poet Laureate of Vermont



"I have for years enjoyed John Flynn's short stories, poems and translations."

Geoffrey Clark, 
author of Jackdog Summer
Wedding In October
and Two, Two Lily-White Boys



"His poems are not 'absurdly modern' but take the risk of articulating a serious moral gaze."

Forrest Gander, 
Pulitzer Prize Finalist 2012, 
on Washing Apples In Streams
