Review of Unknown

Rated: E | (3.0)
*Balloonp* Welcome to WDC tenesa! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Delight*

*Fairy* Your title is intriguing and when I read your short piece I was wondering if the unknown was like this fact that we might not have known about you. *Smile* I liked your last line as it made me smile.

The writing is factual and made me want to ask why. I think you could add more detail like why you like it, what your favourites are, etc. How is Asian horror different from other types?
So many queries are evoked by this short bit. *Thumbsup*

*Burstr* I see you have it in the genre of Horror/scarey though the writing is more bio or personal. It could be scary too...as You like horror. *Laugh*
I see you have it categorized as a chapter and wonder if there is more.

It appears this may be your first trial entry..and it works! Hope you will get a little bio block up soon and add some more to this. We have lots of members who like horror and even have a contest called "SCREAMS!!! if you like to write or even read horror of other types.

*Star*Thanks for jumping into WDC and sharing. Hope to see you around and maybe even on the review pages too. *Wink*

*Angel* Hi Netty! I am here with a review to celebrate you!

This short reflective piece shares potently your faith and encourages others to have gratitude for the divine. Your title is emphatic and gives me the idea of this attribute's importance. *Thumbsup*

The lines are simple and well written, clearly making your point. It is a lovely wisdom piece.
I noticed in the third line you use the word "Thanks". I think you need to drop the "s" to fit with the next word "him". *Wink* Likely a typo!

I wondered about maybe adding a personal experience to give illustration for this truth. It might add interest and weight to the saying. *Heart* Folks like learning about how others get through life.{e:smile{

{e:star}Thanks for sharing. Light on the path as you write on.

*Balloony*Hiya Mike! *Delight* I am happy to review to celebrate you and share my perspective as a reader. *Bookopen*

The title caught my eye as we are having so much snow that the idea of your title was intriging. I had a good laugh reading. The conversation between the couple is so effective and fun. I could just imagine his calm logic and her wrath. *Thumbsup* I like how you kept up her intensity and his logic. The idea that they knew each other well was shown well and affection on his part shown in the word "sweetie". LOL

*Laugh*The husband's comment about the soup at the end was hilarious and your last line shows his getting the idea he was not so bright. Good grief!

The short story was coherent with good sense of puase for the humour. Punctuation in the dialogue and use of italics was effective and assisted the read as well. I really had fun reading. *Smile* Thanks for sharing your vision and craft.

Keep the ink flowing as you follow your muse and write on!*Star*

*Balloony*Welcome to WDC Jillian ! *Delight* I am happy to review to celebrate you and share my perspective as a reader. *Bookopen*

Wow! I enjoyed reading your heartfelt expression and could imagine the difficulty in letting go and all the things that go through to do it. I felt that sometimes you were speaking to the other person and sometimes to oneself.

Your quatrains are effective with a good rhyme scheme. I think in the last few verses your rhymes were weaker, eg. "sleep" with "dreams", "sneak" with "leave" and "meet" with "beliefs" are are a stretch for off rhymes, though the assonance with in them creates a sound effect. *Wink*

The first verses with its images and drew me in. It was cool to read with a good rhythm and all the end rhymes were the same. That is hard to do. *Thumbsup*

Thanks for sharing your unique vision with its potent voice. *Star*

*Balloony*Hiya TGFisher ! *Delight* I am happy to review to celebrate you and share my perspective as a reader. *Bookopen*

*Laugh*I enjoy limericks and this one is quite bawdy! Your format is solid except line 3 seems to be 7 syllables rather than 6 in the 9-9-6-6-9 pattern. *Wink* It still made me laugh.

The poem flowed smoothly and your soundscape was effective as I read it aloud. Good use of assonance and consonance especially the repeated "c" sounds. The rhymes were fun too. The picture added to the humour of the piece too.

*Star*The title was brilliant and set the tone and theme and was comical play on words. You captured the Satyr image in the poem well. Thanks for sharing your gift.

Hiya Ken! Yay! I get to review your item in 'I Write for 2019!" Nothing like a little payback for your kindness. *Wink*

*Heart*Wow! A romantic love sonnet that raises the ideal of love to alofty place! Your title suggests a captivating image that fits a valentine or love poem as we think of "hearts, bodies or souls entwined" and it is more poetic than embraced.

*Heartv*The structure of the sonnet is sound and you rock at form poems. I can't recall the last time I tried a sonnet! LOL I love reading them though. This fine model has the aura and language that suits the theme and style of poem and it was pleasureable to read aloud. The rhyme is well done and use of assonance and consonance assisted the flow of the read. The images are evocative and I like the contrast of the lasting love with the mundanity of life that might could effect it. The moon image was a wonderful choice to compare the "mystic force" of love.*Thumbsup* Time compared to river and the idea of "mundane waters" is an effective image as well. Wow!

*Heart*I tripped over the word "softly" in line one. I liked the sound and old fashioned feel of "feelings, oft-forgotten...", I had to reread "that followed," the first time to get the meaning. Once I got the flow right, I saw what you meant. eg. "that, if followed," LOL I wonder if the word "if" would be easier. *Think* Not sure. but I get it now.*Wink*

*Heart*The summative couplet was uplifting and reflects back to the first verse where he is meditating on the beloved and how love is strong. One feels the gratitude and marvel. You really captured the life path of this couple with the entwining river of love everpresent.

*Star*Thanks for sharing your gift and romantic vision. You really have a skill for the form and essence of a sonnet. *Salute*

Good luck in the contest!

*Delight*Hi ridinghood! I am happy to review your piece for "I Write in 2019."


The free verse paints a vivid picture of a fun afternoon at the movies. I like the detail and could relate to being the oldest being given the task of taking younger ones on outing. *Smile*

The commentary on the theatre and how valueable it was, even without the added perks, is very clear and I can so agree with the point of view of how it could broaden a life. We lived in the country so not a lot going on. Movies and books sure opened vistas. The concept of the bridge is evocative. The lines contrasting the two places is meaningful too. *Smile*

I take it that the prompt picture stirred memories of staying warm inside or spring coming meant getting outward!

As always I appreciate the tarot reference.

Thanks for sharing your unique vision. *Star*

*Balloonp*Welcome to WDC Kyle! Your wonderful creation popped up on the Read and Review page so here I am to celebrate you with a review! *Delight*

I am glad you put Death as one of your category genres as this is indeed a dark piece. The depressive mood is potent and your tag line is evocative. I get the idea his death is the gift to life. Wow! Sad!

I was drawn into the imagery of the first line. The word "meddling" is interesting and "blue vibrations" I took to be low negative energy. Along with "stone Heart" You set the mood and mental state of the poet. I like how you then address the audience as if telling them what to see. Brilliant. *Smile*

The structure is effective with 4 line verses and a consistent rhyme scheme that helps the flow. Your use of assonance and sounds within words really makes it pleasing to read and adds to the over all poetic feel of the poem.

The use of personification is cool too, as worry "scratches" and "paints". I also liked the vivid "agony to thorns" image.

*starstuck*The poem really captures the helplessness of this lost soul without hope in a vivid way. I like the last line, which leaves a door way to light. Interesting and evocative piece. Thanks for sharing your craft.

*BalloonR*HI Mastiff! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

Wow! Your title was direct and grabbed my attention. The word shouted out into empty space and seemed in my mind to echo the shot! *Think*LOL

This is an effective flash piece as you drew me in quickly to the setting and action. The character had a interesting name though, at first I had to read it again as I thought it odd to not say the stump, until I saw the verb. LOL

The last part of line two was awkward to read: "for deer, for weeks" I wonder if it would be more effective to have the time line at the start of the line. *Wink*

The shock of a shot from nowhere was a good sudden action. I think a period after "backwards" would give pause and potency to the next line. Both lines are complete in themselves anyway.

The line beginning "on his back" is not a complete sentence and threw me out of the read a bit. *Think* Maybe something like, "On his back, bleeding, he stared..."

I can imagine his thoughts as he lay there..and maybe knowing he would never know. I would put his exact inner thoughts in italics for clarity. I like how he is confused about sirens or wind. The last line was a surprise. Good one.*Thumbsup*

I felt bad for the guy and am left also curious as to the reason for the shot. At first I thought his gun went off and he fell from the spot. Yet his later thoughts made me wonder. Cool!

It is a challenge to write full episodes in so few words. I appreciate your creation. *Star*

Light on the path as you write on!!*Star*

*BalloonR**ConfettiP*HI Jatog the Green! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

*Delight* Wow! I am so impressed with this creation with its fine form and specific detail about the subject of skin! What an intriguing topic for a poem and your genius thinking is apparent. Well done.

*Tornado*The title suggests humour and ironic as the poem is not "skinny" on detail and fact. The tone has a lightness too it as it examines the aspsects of skin and its care. The vocabulary is well chosen and themeatic and I like the variety...words like "hirsute" and integuement" give it a scientific vibe and I had to look them up. lol. Awesome when I can learn something. Your observation and knowledge on skin is well illustrated in the facts you weave into the commentary. *Thumbsup*

*Star* The descriptive language is vivid and the verses flow coherently. It flowed rhythmically and was pleasant to read aloud. You did a fabulous job on the rhyme scheme, I think it is challenge with a long poem. The images of the "snare", "The battlefield" and "itch warefare" are brilliant and paint a clear picture in my mind.

*Smile*The structure was effective and punctuation served the read, adding to the drama as well. The voice was strong and consistent and key opinions were pursuasive. *Laugh* I had such fun entering the vision!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful craft and eloquence.
Keep writing on!*Star*

*BalloonR**Heartv*Happy Valentine's Day Jeff! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

The title is simple and yet really fits the poem, which shows that a big decision has to be made. This is a rather dark piece as the person considers whether to jump. I thought of suicide as opposed to a new adventure because of the 7th line.

You build up the tension well in these short lines with brief imperatives of what to do step by step. I wondered about the "my mind" at the end as in first read you seem to be speaking to the audience and it threw me out of the read abit.*Think* Now I see it is rather oneself talking to self and he is giving himself something to consider. It is evocative to wonder which is longer and how one would tell. *Thumbsup* Keeps one considering longer.

Thanks for sharing your potent vision in these short lines! I hope he steps back! *Thumbsup*

*BalloonR**Heartv*Happy Valentine's Day! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

Wow! This free verse is an amazing composition! I was drawn to the title with its mythical reference and was not disappointed. You capture the mind of this "son" brilliantly, revealing his feeling of being so attached to his mother's power. I can really feel his agony.

Your images and comparisons are so vivid with well chosen vocabulary that brings vitality and realism to how he feels. So impressive. Your use of assonance and consonance and bits of alliteration are effective so that the piece is pleasing to read. The language feels old fashioned too, reflecting the Oepdipus theme. I loved "matriarchal blade" and "ancient ancestors" and "nutshell of anger" and "edges dogeared" and ears as viaducts! So many neat metaphors. *Delight* The tight weave on the page without a break imitates the compressed mind and feeling of repression. Well conceived creation.*Salute*

I wondered if you need the word "a" with saber in "like I was saber". *Think*

I so appreciate this word wizardry with its potent vibe and imagery. I felt for this poor guy!
Fabulous and original! *Starstruck*

*BalloonR**ConfettiP*HI Elby! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

The title was appealing to me as we used to raise chickens and my brother and his family have chickens of various kinds. So it was fun to see your theme. *Chicken*

*Delight*I loved your wonderful poem with its lyrical flow and effective rhyme. It flowed smoothly and the refrain gave emphasis to the importance of the job. I get it! You capture the picture of how the job effects night life vividly. The job of shutting the gate and hutch is shown to be important. And it is true the chickens have set times. One has to be ware of foxes and egg gathering too.

I felt for the poet early to bed and early to rise when he wanted to enjoy summer fun! I was releived when the short time period was revealed. The sentiment of friendship and your appreciation for the landlords and...er the chickens too. *Thumbsup*

*Chicken*The verses were balanced and It was pleasing to read aloud. It seemed like a song with its good use of assonance and consonance and rhyme. I liked the variety of phrasing lengths within the the verses. *Smile*

*Star*Thanks for sharing your vision and crafting. It was quite humorous.

LOL One could canoe down the Amazon. Awesome. The rhyming is excellent and fun too.

The form is well composed and you did a good job with consonance with the repeated 't'! I liked reading it aloud. Cute play on Amazon and Timbuktu was brilliant too.

*Delight* I could not resist the unique title and I love Acrostics. It is a great play on words and I could appreciate the full meaning on reading your poems! *Thumbsup*

*Shock2* These acrostics are amazing and totally capture the essence of doing crosswords and highlight the famous New York Times puzzle. Amazing that so many people do them. My mom used to do crossword puzzles all the time in the Canadian papers. She knew an amazing amount of words in her time.

*Delight* The first crossword uses wonderful hard sounding "structural" kind of words to reflect the creation of the puzzle. I enjoyed the soundscape when I read aloud.

*Smile* The second one was fun and intellectual in vibe. Words like "Nomenclature", "zenith", and "Lexicon" sound Timesy! Great job using two Z's as key letters and finding words that work here.

*Bigsmile*You did a super job with the interesting long phrase in the last poem. It is a lot of letters for the theme. I really got the vibe of how challenging these puzzles can be from your descriptions especially the examples of the answers to find! Wow! Adding clues that had empty lines shows a way clues are given as well.

*Thumbsup* I enjoyed your use of alliteration and consonance here and I would love to be able to use the word "Hitherto" in a poem and make sense. and "Gamifying'? Awesome! LOL I like the line with "Is artfully.." great mouthful!

*Star* This is brilliant word wizardry and I had fun! Thanks for sharing your gift.

*Delight*I was drawn to the title as it made me curious! In this short form you capture the query that fits the title. It is interesting theme that contrasts the delight of a secret valentine and the darker notion of imposter. I thought of stalker. *Smile* Evocative.

The form is well composed with its three line and syllable count. Using questions leads the reader to consider a larger picture. The poem is an effective response to the prompt about mistaken identity. I appreciate the effort it took to create such a vivid vision in few words. *Star*

*Delight**Rain* Happy February Ken! It is lovely to enter your vision of rain that reminds me of warmer weather. We are in the freeze up here! LOL


*Rain*Your title is effective and makes me think of a vibrant energy surprise! It is perfect for your reflective and detailed observations of rain. The last line image is a brilliant
simile. I love it!

*Rain*Your free verse was a good choice for the variety of images and notions about rain. The descriptions are vivid and I appreciated such words as "argent", "velvet" and "flashes". The first image is so appealing and suggests nurture. The first verses flow well and the later verses are longer, more explanatory.

*Rain* In verse 6 I found the third-fifth lines abit unweildy and you use the less descriptive word "awesome" twice in the poem. Maybe something simpler like "or remind us of the strength of nature". In the second last verse you used three ly adverbs...maybe something more vivid could increase potency of your idea.*Wink*

*Rain*I want to read the word "revealed" at the end of line 2 in the last verse but I see you wanted to rhyme. So the word "a" before "meaning" might make it flow better. Just my view. LOL

*Rain* Effective use of assonance and consonance added to the dynamic flow and soundscape. The first four verses and the last were my favourites for flow. Rhyming with "coalesce" was cool!

Thanks for sharing this thoughtful vision of rain and its effect on nature and us! *Star*

*Delight*Happy February Azrael! I am happy to review your item in "I Write in 2019"! It is wonderful that you joined in the DEAR ME site contest! *Thumbsup*

I enjoyed you opening lines as I could relate to talking to yourself and had to laugh! I was not sure what the n(you) meant. *Wink* Your second paragraph was brilliant in imagery and vibration. What a wondeful way to describe success and the line about "doomed to drown" was priceless. I loved it!

Your summary of the downside of the year is hearfelt and I appreciate how you keep a lighter tone about it. I am glad you made it through!

I appreciate your metaphors and comparisons like "resettling is a migraine"! LOL I think you need a period after that word as the part of the line seems to be a complete thought on its own.

Your style and humour is so appealing here as you speak to yourself. You do have a positive outlook while you take a few potshots at yourself. I think it is cool to want to get Grandma's stories! Great use of the reference to Charon, and zombies! I had to laugh about the blog! The last line is perfect and your closing is so true. Hope it is a good thing to be stuck with you.*Laugh*

I really had a good time reading this letter. You have a wonderful sense of humour and I am sure that keeps you going in the tough times. May this year be all you wish for and more. *Wand*

Looking forward to more of your awesome poems and stories. You have a gift. *Starstruck*

Wow! This is an amazing expression. You capture the images of the world and what is required so vividly. Your observations are acute. *Salute* It is a very inspiring call to do our part to create a better world. The line of wisdom at the end sums it up perfectly.

It was a delight to read aloud these coherent verses and you did a fabulous job with the rhyme scheme. Only the first verse lacks the pattern but it is an introduction. *Smile* The comparison about the earth is striking and that we are creating our destiny here is a good point.

This really speaks to people as inspirational wake up call! If only we will hear and Love. *Heart* Thank you for sharing your true to life vision to spread awareness.

*BalloonR**ConfettiP*Happy Anniversary month Lisa! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

I was scouting your port and found your folder on your form poetry attempts. It is wonderful that you take on new creations. The title got my attention as I could imagine what kind of games birds might play. Sounded fun and reflects a comical theme.

Your limerick is fun and well composed. You used the typical 9,9.6,6,9. line counts with proper rhyme scheme and a funny turining point at the end! I think line one is 10 syllables and line 5 is 8, though. *Wink* It did not spoil the fun and essence of the form.

I find writing these a challenge especially the funny part. You did a great job. Thinking of a kitten with a flamingo is hilarious image. Maybe put capital letter on Mingo. Cute name!

"lets" needs an apostrophe and periods after Mingo and flamingo I think.

I had fun playing in this vision! *Star*

The title is simple and suits the theme, making me curious as to what nine would mean to you. I like the cool aspects of nine that you reveal. Adding the mystical 9 as completion is neat and I like the angel choruses! You have done some research.*Smile*

The style suits the unique theme and the added rhyme adds to the flow and read.

I think you need a question mark after "so much" as it is a rhetorical query.
"amazing seeing such a gift" is a bit awkward to read.*Wink*
Should "that are" be "who are" in line 11...because strangers are people?

The tone of reflection is clear and I enjoyed pondering on the topic. *Smile*
Thanks for sharing your vision of nine.

*BalloonR**ConfettiP*HI bear! I am here with a review to celebrate you! *Star*

Wow! I enjoyed entering this magical vision based on your experience with dolphins. It is truly moving. The setting and mood of the poet was so vivid and real. I loved it!

The poem verses are balanced in four lines with abcb rhyme scheme though "minutes" and "swimming" is a bit off to me. It does have the short i sound. "sensed" and "bench" was closer. *Wink*
The rhythm is more free style than even and verse 6 had longer lines than the rest. It could use a bit of tightening up in flow, yet reading and pondering on the event was a pleasant one. Good use of some sound devices and imagery. *Thumbsup*

I noticed a few punctuation glitches to me:

Verse 2, line needs a comma instead of a period as it ties to the next line.
In Verse 5 you need to drop the period after "know" as the next line completes the thought.
The rhyme here is off as well, though again the assonance works.
Verse 9 you need a comma instead of period after "tale".

I like the idea of the compassionate sensing nature of the dolphin and how the heart and soul can be received and soothed by nature and it's creatures. We really are never alone. *Heart* Thanks for sharing your reflective experience. What a vibrant memory to have. *Star*

Light on the path as you write on!!*Star*

*Fairy**Tree* Hi Lisa! I am here with a review for you as part of your surprise package in our January Power Raid! *Delight*

I love trees and poetry so when I found this collection (congrats on the Quill nomination) I could not resist jumping in. *Wink* I had not heard of this Ronka form so thanks for the note about it. I wonder if putting the author's note at the bottom of the page would allow for your wonderful poem to get the attention first! *Smile*

I enjoyed the image in this short poem and the philosphical tone at the start. I can relate to that as I can sit in my living room and look out at the woods, where deer come and birds and squirrels flit around. It feels like home and nature is one place that accepts us for who we are too. Relaxing.*Heart*

It is a good read. I only glitched as I think a comma after the first line, and the word "tree" would help with the flow as those lines naturally connect to the next ones in full concepts. *Wink*

I like the idea of a platform perch in a tree for observing nature. One often hears of these for hunting purposes.

The ronka is well composed in form and conception. Lovely vision to enter. Thanks for sharing your craft and love of nature. I am inspired to try one of these. *Star*

Keep on writing on!

*Delight* Hi Super Power Hero Sum1! I am happy to celebrate you in our "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group raid


*Heart*Wow!This is a spectacular shape poem and it really resembles a candle. *Candleo* I appreciate the effort it took to create it. I have tried to do these without much success. *Smile*

*Candleb*The poem is a delight to read with its inner rhyme and use of assonance and consonance added to a cohesive soundscape. The personification is excellent and I like the way you weave in the elements of candle life. *Laugh* Punctuation assisted the read

*Candleb*It has a happy tone and made me smile. Thanks for sharing this inventive creation and charming vision of a candle. *Star* Brilliant construction.
