My Review of Always Today by BobQuinn
Bob, good use of flow, rhythm and rhyme. Your poem presents a practical picture within the last stanza in which romantic happiness is not part of history, ~ Sonia

My Review of Brainwashed by EDP1996
EDP, those who are judgmental have a tendency to alienate people. Your poem reads as a vent against a sanctimonious individual. ~ Sonia

My Review of Moonlit Words by RachelMurray
Rachel, no matter what, the moon has been romanticized over the centuries. We cannot take that role away from it. Many a confession has been made before the moon. At least the moon does not reveal our secrets. ~ Sonia

My Review of AT MY FUNERAL by seriouspoet
Whimsical
Seriouspoet, it seems you would be happy with an Irish wake of the past. It is true that we would rather laugh than cry most times. Flying among the clouds seems more fun than being buried six feet under. I sensed some whimsy within your poem. ~ Sonia

My Review of A Wondrous Thing by michaelgallatin
Michael, your poem paints a positive picture of wolves. Over the years in Alaska,we have heard horror stories about how they attack/kill pet dogs on trails and on a few occasions people. These incidents have been few. Thank you for presenting a familial portrait of these wild animals. ~ Sonia

My Review of Only Rise by JohnCreekmore
A deep poem.
John, there are times when life seems to pass us by. In other words, when we are expected to perform and do not, we miss opportunities which can be positive within our lives. You have expressed this in abstract terms which requires the reader to dig deeply for better understanding. Thank you for the challenge. ~ Sonia

My Review of My Castle by SilverFang13
SilverFang13, it seems your castle is your fortress for hurt feelings. Painful memories have a tendency to resurface no matter how high we build our castle walls. Your confessional poem reads well. ~ Sonia

My Review of With Wings Of A Clipped Rose by blossomwriter
Blossomwriter, once the rose is clipped from its bush, its life span is shortened. I enjoyed reading the poem with its clever use of simile and metaphor. ~ Sonia

My Review of The Tale of Two Warriors by Pankti
Fascinating Tale
A tale of fantasy with a moral. It is a fascinating one in which a young woman is represented as a warrior and that her strength comes from a sword which she discovered among some bushes. This is a well written story which keeps the reader on the edge of the seat. ~ Sonia

My Review of Building Walls by annalame
Annalame, a poem which reads as a song. I suggest dividing your very long poem into stanzas so readers can breathe. Your alliteration, 'I'm back to building walls again' will be better emphasized when it is the beginning of each stanza. All the best, Sonia

My Review of RETURN TO ME MY LOVE by kitty
Romantic Plea
Kitty, this definitely is a very romantic poem about a lost love. Being fickle within relationships usually means someone gets hurt. Good use of rhythm, rhyme and flow within your poem. The last line is a refreshing end. ~ Sonia

My Review of Reminiscence by chrome
Reminiscing
Chrome, our dreams of yesterday are not our present reality. Thinking about a past love and all the rommancing provides an escape from the ruts of life. The use of a light alliteration within your poem adds to the flow and rhythm for the reader. ~ Sonia

My Review of MY BELOVED WIFE (SUPER GIRL) by seriouspoet
Dedication
Seriouspoet, a lovely poem of dedication to your wife, Christine. At least your 'Supergirl' is genuine as your poetic tribute to her. All the best, Sonia.

My Review of Endless (For Jeff, A Most Fine Friend) by michaelgallatin
Finite or Infinite?
Astronomers still do not know if our universe is finite or infinite. It would be a relief to know since it would satisfy our curious natures. The subject matter is never ending. A perpetual quandary bugging our world. Thank you for opening the door to a timeless question in which there aren't any answers only theories or speculations. ~ Sonia

My Review of Know Peace by JohnCreekmore
John, there are people who have never known 'peace' because it does not exist as they have been exposed to war for decades. The quiet and tranquility belongs someplace else. It is a tragedy. ~ Sonia

My Review of 601. For Pretty Brd by Profanisaurus
Semantics
Profanisaurus, there seems to be a fine line between 'pretty' and 'beautiful.' Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I personally believe being pretty is superficial whereas being beautiful runs skin deep. It's all part of semantics. ~ Sonia

My Review of The Garden Of Joy by terrygodwin
Memory Lane
Terry, your poem is a lovely trip down memory lane. You write of a time when most knew their friends and neighbors living within smaller communities. It occurred before urban sprawl took over and villages remained unincorporated. I enjoyed reading about your 'garden of joy' within the first stanza which made a welcoming stepping stone for the rest of your nostalgic write. All the best, Sonia.

My Review of 602. The Dinosaur Rock Group by Profanisaurus
This one rocks!
Profanisaurus, a clever poem in which the reader can envision the dinosaurs rocking away with their musical instruments and belting out songs. This would make a delightful animated movie. ~ Sonia

My Review of L.O.T.J.L Ep 37: Taking Back The Desert Continent by EdwinBozie
Edwin, your story seems to be written more as a script rather than a fictional tale or novella.
I realize It is challenging to write a sci-fi fantasy. Within this work, I would like to read more descriptive imagery packed with more action. Remember your readers do not want to fall asleep. Within this genre, most of them want cosmic excitement which makes their adrenalin flow. All the best. ~ Sonia

My Review of On A Bright And Sunny Day by michaelgallatin
Delightful
Michael, children take a delight when they become part of a story or poem. I enjoyed the rhythm, rhyme and flow within your poem. Writing for children takes imagination since we have to think like children, word usage and all. ~ Sonia

My Review of Hillbilly by taylor12
Bravo!
Taylor12, a bucolic tale of living in the Southeast. I found the first chapter of your story relaxing and easy to read. I pictured a rustic-looking log cabin with a wrap-around porch built in an idyllic verdant holler. Life was more laid back during a time when the simple things of life brought joy to your protaginist's. Pray your surgery goes well. ~ Sonia

My Review of Liar, Liar by Thirteen
Thirteen, when lies are told, more than one person gets hurt. The person who lies to cover up the truth keeps digging a deeper hole to cover each consecutive lie until he or she cannot crawl out of the infernal hole. Then there is the victim who believes the liar and discovers the falsehood, usually too late. The person who is duped feels anger followed by emotional pain which can harbor for years. A healthy mind chooses to forgive and go on with a new start in life. Your poem is an eye opener for this type of situation. ~ Sonia

My Review of Vegas On The Brain by Silverblue
Energetic Poem.
Silverblue, your poem of Las Vegas makes a great song to sing. It is full of excitement and energy. Makes some of us want to hop on a plane and visit Vegas again. You forgot to mention that some of the buffets are to die for. This is spotlight worthy. ~ Sonia

My Review of No Remembrance of Winter by SketerMichaels
Skeeter, seasons come and go and some of them pass so quickly they become blurrs within our minds. It seems winter encourages us to feel numb and cold because of its icy persona. A good read. ~ Sonia
