My Review of What Do We Really Know? by Silverblue
Evocative
My mind races to consider all the thoughts you've shared. Very well constructed and narrated, like a sage teaching a pupil how to think for oneself and to be. Brilliant I loved it, thank you!

My Review of Forgetting To Forget by Silverblue
Thoughtful
Every horrible aspect of unwanted memories and associated thoughts are described in sad detail. You've captured the massicistic side of memory superbly. Now all you need to do is made it to that place where you can close the door behind you.

My Review of Fingers by richom
Brilliant
This poem took me along the road of finger discover by subterfuge and guile. The object of each digit enlightened word by word until the final threat is delivered at the end.

I loved every bendy honey bit of it. Superb, it really made me laugh!

My Review of American Genocide by michaelgallatin
Incredibly poignant
I'm lost for words on this one. It's so full of downplayed colourful analogies, respectful and harsh of the massacred and the massacerers. The penultimate stanza:-
"So listen at night to the chants
that flow on breezes..."

is one I will I will never forget. Even living in another continent I feel I'll hear their voices and cries.

Simply stunning and a must for the spotlight.

Thank you.

My Review of Can't Put Your Finger On It by Silverblue
This poem is alive
How, how, how?

I see this as the question being asked as the answers given in automatic response by others have no meaning, and are cliches to the broken (I think I've just hit upon the title of my next piece!).

I've written poems similar to this, but not as well as this one. It inspires me to try harder, and that and the emotions you've displayed can only be good.

Thanks for baring your soul (and given me the title lol).

My Review of Countenance by Silverblue
Just superb
I'm never disappointed reading your work. Reflective, penetrating, thoughtful, imaginative & meaningful, just some of the words I could use. There are very many many more.

There are sorrowful times, happy times, despairing times and simply peaceful times. To be reminded of that is to keep us grounded in the facts of life we all share. Just Superb! Thank you.

My Review of The Park by Silverblue
Close your eyes
I read this a few times then closed my eyes and all I read appered in my mind. The imagery is fantastic, set with a nice moderate pace to take the reader through each segment. Superb and uplifting. Thank you!

My Review of Hymn To The Rising Sun by ALEXJLOCKWOOD
Expected
Religious words follow a similar tone where platitudes follow platitudes.

I respect the belief, but as a poem it lacks originality and premise. There's no doubt you have skills as a writer and I look forward to reading more of your work.

My Review of Familiar Feeling by Silverblue
Rich in emotion
This has everything, and clearly refers to a person and experiences the author has witnessed first hand. The readers journey is as full of the ups and downs as the subject, in a carefully controlled route.
Just superb. Thank you

My Review of Creativity's First Draft by odinroark
Renewed
Everyone a writer puts one to paper they are begining anew. Fresh ideas, confuse and overwhelm the thoughts until order is brought through writing.
I love this piece, thank you.

My Review of Fulfillment by JohnCreekmore
Insightful
A very moving piece on the error of seeking jewels when what we already have is a kings ransom in contrast.

It makes me think, precisely what poetry should do. Thank you.

My Review of Wept by Silverblue
Ambiguous
I mean that word as a compliment. I can see this as a murders confession, a lovers regret or an observers tale of comeuppance. Any of those fit the tale because it's so well written.

Yen I enjoyed that thank you!

Different, novel, a very unusual but challenging topic to cover.

I loved it's difference and its imagery.

My Review of Sentient Morn by TonyD
Beautiful
A terrific piece, the lines:-

"leaning soldiers in vast array,
saluting sun in arc of day."

just fantastic. You have a descriptive gift that I'm delighted to have read, and will re-read again and again (like your other work).

Thank you!

My Review of Beginnings Small by TonyD
Thought provoking
This demands more than one reading, and on each one something different emerges.

I'll be exploring the universe through these words in the weeks ahead.

Thank you!

My Review of the discomfort of this cradle by cloudgoth
Conflict
Yeh you're not really sure what way you want to go in this piece. Skyward or earthbound?

I liked this, it's an argument up front with self. Who won?

My Review of Relieve Me by Deedee27
Story well told
The headline speaks.

I'd consider the rhythm of the poem, in places its fluent, in others slightly clunky, but despite this the poem says a great deal, and very well!

My Review of Alone, with Pen by TonyD
Really!
I'd never considered our art in this way before, and became metaphorically submerged in the process.

I loved it, especially the line:-

"Words begin to soar, find flight within the shadows,
and render thoughts like colors to a canvas."

Excellent!

Thanks for giving meaning to our madness.

My Review of "I" by Valentine
Beautiful
The words, meaning, timing & emotion conveyed were stunning.

I haven't been online for a while, but I am so glad I came on when I did otherwise I might have missed this!

Perfect.

My Review of The Disastrous Traffic Stop by EltonCamp
Intriguing
Very interesting especially the two line paragraphs.

I'm not sure if it works. I've read it quite a few times and the story and humour is there and nicely put, put the pace is fragmented in places.

A review/few amendments would really do this piece justice.

My Review of The School Bus Revolt by richom
Quirky
I'm loving the variety of topics that spill from that imagination.

I'm not sure in what order this piece comes in your repertoire, but it stands up very well with the other gems I've read.

Again (and a year overdue!) well done.

My Review of Go Green by richom
Do it!
The colour would suit you, and add youthful appearance to a youthful soul.

Needless to say I loved this. Vibrant and vivid, and well green all over.

Great stuff.
