Review of The 13th Bureau  
Review by Being Diane
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Helen and I WAS spies. Or we were spies.
trained it on my friend. Did you mean turned it on my friend?

Aside from those little mistakes I really liked this especially since we are currently living in a time that this could actually happen. I also liked the humor between the two little old ladies and I liked how they spoke their mind. I'm 63 and it makes me feel good to read something without a lot of romance in it. Keep writing, you have talent!

Review of The Beach  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE NEWBIE REVIEWE...  
Rated: E | (5.0)
What made me choose your item: The title because when I think of nature I have to think of the Beach! When I first saw the ocean in 1972 on my senior trip to the Bahamas from Detroit....I was in love not with anyone but nature.



How it made me feel: Exactly as if I was standing on the beach thinking of the words you wrote and what I felt in my soul.


Improvements: None, I found it very heart warming.

Review of The Darkest Spot

Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
A simply Positive Review


Overall Impression i liked it very much I just needed it to flow a little better. I think some small change in the last 4 stanzas would help. Just a personal opinion.



Did it deal with the human experience: yes because I felt the sadness and darkness in a room which should have contained love and life.

What made me drawn to review this piece: I love the title although in the Bible it says something like Crying endurth but joy cometh in the morning. I know it’s misspelled but I am sleepy and too tired to get a dictionary and for some reason my spell check isn’t taking it at all. Have you read the old book by I think Betty Smith named Joy in the Morning? It is so good but old.




How it made me feel: It gave me hope because I know God is in charge and no matter what as long as I know He is charge I know I can make it but sometimes it seems so bleak. I get overwhelm sometimes and don’t think I can make it. Oh, Well...One day at a time sweet Jesus.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes and you should continue to write. I miss those positive books with had great poetry in them. Bless you.

Review of The Obsession  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
What made me drawn to review this piece: When you, too are obsessed with what comes out of the ground when you plant a seed you can’t miss an essay on gardening. The only mistake I saw was simple instead of the I think you meant to say they in the 3rd paragraph. I loved this, so simple yet with your words the writing came to life. This is what I like to see something as simple as poo can go a long way.




How it made me feel: Happy! I really think we need this kind of writing this world which sometimes seems it is turning inside out!




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, you never know what you get when you plant little poo. LOL

Review by Being Diane

Rated: E | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: Because I wondered so much how we keep secrets from each other. Although high school wasn’t that bad the biggest crique I received was of all places, church. One time I came out to spend the day with my friend and the one I was riding with wanted to spend some time talking with my friend. He wasn’t suppose to tell a thing but he was actually doing this adult a big favor because her words went to all the youth in my class. The first thing was that I was called was a person with an ethic nose. I cried so hard in the bathroom. I don’t remember the other wicked thing which were said to me. We lived in the slums of Detroit, MI and most of my time was spent on trying to spent reading. Certainly, I wasn’t going with Chistians. I wonder now if they ever stop to realize how cruel to those words were to a 13 year old?




How it made me feel: Your words made me remember how hard bullying was. I’m glad I don’t have to try and be part of the in crowd anymore. The funny thing about it all is that I became a beauty in my own right and chose different friends. I begain reading, looking at pictures for prom, and became someone who loved poetry; I couldn’t get enough of authors of that era or the music. While all they were concerned with was beauty I worked on my brains!




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, so much so for every generation. I think you should concern yourself with trying to get this out to magazines and newspapers. You did a wonderful job!

Review by Being Diane
Rated: E | (4.5)
What made me drawn to review this piece: I grew up in Detroit in the sixties and my friend, Kathleen was exposed to art because her Father was an art dealer. Walking into her house was like walking into a museum because her Mom was white French and her Dad a knowledgeable black man. In addition to the art the house was cluttered which I must love because mine is the same way. I felt like I was in the Munster’s or Adam’s Family Home.




How it made me feel: Great! It covered a lot of ideas and knowledge in a short amount of space. I would have given it a higher review if it didn’t contain so many pronouns. She, her, it.... another thing is using unnessary words as this: She even visits art museums. You could have left out even. I do this so much in my work that I really have to proof again and again.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes and she would make a great character for a book!

Review of The Red Caravan  
Review by Being Diane
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: Second one I’ve read of this young man’s and it is wonderful. The only problem I see is some breaking up in the first paragraph with some ending of sentences. You need to start a great long short story on this piece of work. Great job!




How it made me feel: Interested and amused.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes and I really encourage you to keep writing.

What made me drawn to review this piece: I was hooked when I saw Moon. You see Moon and I have a special relationship. Not only is the Moon my muse but something I photograph regularly. I’ll send you a copy of one of my latest pictures. The moon almost looks like it’s pink.




How it made me feel: Like the little girl. I used to talk to the moon and when my children were young I loved the book Good night Moon. I felt like that little girl once again. What a great job plus I liked the rhyming.




Did it connect to the human experience? Of course, what youngster doesn’t look up at the sky and talk?

Review of One Candle Glows  
Review by Being Diane
Rated: E | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: When I saw under the title about a woman remembering a past love. I think all women sometimes think what could have been but usually it doesn’t work out.




How it made me feel: So sad at first but toward the end I felt a little like the lady’s life was complete. Although, I love romances, the good ones out there sometimes I only mention the love in my poems. Past love always make me a little sad that it didn’t work out.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, like I said all women, I think remember their first love because it is so strong.

Thank you for sharing a very personal poem.

Diane

Review of Stygian Souls  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
What made me drawn to review this piece: We have so many storms in the south I was curious as to what this was about.




How it made me feel: Very deep and dark. I call it hell when the wind is just lashing havoc everywhere it goes like the devil incarnate. The thing you did with your poem is made it scary but also written elegant. I could feel what you felt and I think you have captured what author’s live to do in their lifetime---{c:hot pink} Hear your voice through your wiring.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, storms, everywhere.

What made me drawn to review this piece: At first I thought the life of Silver might be about a little dog because my Aunt had a puddle named Silver. I was surprised and this is so good and when I read some more I understood how much silver means in the color wheel and I love silver. The color is so beautiful because it is so shiny and I make a great use out of it....I love silver permanent markers then I buy a burgundy notebook or black and white words all over it.




How it made me feel: Great! This kind of poetry is so powerful and you are not concerned with anything else but words and putting them together. I felt a Deju Vu, have I relived this before?




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, everyone loves color and words unless you aren’t on the earth to know. I want to learn everything while I am here.

That was great! I want to sure something personally but I will do it through email. This poem reminds me so much of that time. People that you those things in complete disregard to your feelings will never do well in life. My ex husband is such an example of the person you are talking about. This poem can be regarded in many ways....it could even be the abuse I’ve taken from my drug addicted son. Codependent No More saved me more than one time. Have you ever read it?
Thanks for sharing for your writing is so healing.

What a great idea for a poetry contest! What do I think is so great? Because the poetry that I write comes out to fast to worry about Iambic Pentameter stuff and to look up words that rhyme. I think that would take away the flow of my poems and I have wrote them since I was a little girl. I am a big girl now and 60 years young.

Review of Darkened Muse  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: I found it as a moderator for a group that I knew nothing about but to add a sentence to since my name was on the list. Then I saw the title and was drawn to it but didn’t think it would have such a surprise ending.




How it made me feel: I love it because I was falling for everything that was happening normal in the house. I did not expect the vampire scene and I always think that’s good. Once again I’ve found that poor, little vampires are always stuck somewhere being ignored and have to get some blood to become normal again. Too bad about the writer and the kid though!




Did it connect to the human experience? The Vamp experience. You did a great job.

It’s late time to get some rest. Wonder if some blood would give me some energy tomorrow?

Review of Bible  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
*Why did I pick this to review? Because it was about the Bible and I wanted to see what an Acrostic poem was...I looked it up on Bing and I am very impressed. I may try it myself.



* Grammar and suggestions for a better read: I saw it done perfectly exactly the way the definition of the poem read.



*Did it connect with the human experience? Yes, those that are spiritual, like me crave items like this which confirm my faith. I also read other faiths like the Tao and Buddha. Who knows where Christ traveled between the years of 13 and 33!

Thanks for sharing.

Diane

Review of 9/11- Remembered  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: You sent me 1000 GP’s for reviewing and I am so glad I stopped for a moment to go to your port!




How it made me feel: It made me feel proud to be an American because you touched my heart with your poem. The really great thing is that you did it so professionally with it rhyming. I’ve got to try that style. My poetry fails in compassion to yours. It made me remember, even now, what happened to us; how many lives were lost just because of religious zealots.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, we will always remember.

Review of Healing  
Review by Being Diane

Rated: E | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: Always, in your case it is the title which draws me in....we share a sentiment. I didn’t have so much as a childhood trauma as what happen as an adult. When I was a child, I was so admired. I was the only child, only grandchild, and only niece. They spoiled me so bad that I really expected it when I got older and it didn’t happen. I love the line in Sandra Bullock’s movie, Hope Floats when the little girl says something like it’s not the childhood that’s the best because it is the childhood you try to get over...something like that. You captured that and more. You really need to try and publish a book of poetry because it is so needed in the world today.




How it made me feel: Joyous because all the little children and God gives us the chance to get over any obstacle in life. God loves the people like us who wear our hearts on our shoulders.




Did it connect to the human experience? Very much so!

God bless,
Diane

What made me drawn to review this piece: The little picture on the left plus the title. I’m so glad I read it. I’ll send you a link to my poem about a fairy. I love them and at 60- I still believe much stronger in fairies. When my children would loose their teeth I would put sparkles out from their heads to the window. The fairy left sparkles from the children’s head out of the window!




How it made me feel: Like a child again. At heart, I always will be and your poem gently reminded me of how much a child I really am.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes!

Your words come out so smoothly in your writing like you do it with such grace. Your writing is so good I would be thinking of publishing these poems. I will be first in line for a book!

Keep writing!
Diane

Review of A Heart So Wild  
Review by Being Diane
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: The title because it made me think of youth and being so wild full of crazy beliefs yet such hope came through when the wise older person spoke words from her plight with love.




How it made me feel: Hopeful that everyone will fall in love one day. Hopeful that one day my little girl will find the quiet love she would like in this world. Then again I think of the Stone’s song, you can’t always get what you want.....Sometimes you get what you need.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes because I was wild at heart when I was younger as I aged all of this hits home.
Thank you for your poetry from the heart.

Review of One American

Rated: E | (5.0)
What made me drawn to review this piece: Just the plain and simple title makes me know it has to be something which will capture my heart and it did.




How it made me feel: Very sad because I can only imagine how it could be going to a Vet’s hospital. You pulled that into your poetry so well. I, like you have been touched by others in the service but having been in the service myself.




Did it connect to the human experience? Yes, the service our fellow American’s go through should be honored more than a few holidays a year. Thank you.

What made me drawn to review this piece: A laugh...what kind of new wrinkle cream does this writing.com member have on hand?




How it made me feel: It made me feel 60 years young because doesn’t it seem like once you hit 60 you kind of go through a beautiful awakening....I love it! Your bubble bath proved that and I love the way I felt you becoming a child and reminiscing of days gone by. You did a wonderful job and this was a pleasure to read. I love rubber duckie’s....yellow ones.




Did it connect to the human experience? I think we all feel childlike the older we get and you just made it seem so real. Thanks for making my night.

What made me drawn to review this piece: The title because I believe God knows and sees all. I have had a death recently in the family and he was not saved but he became saved when he entered the ambulance and cried out to God. I heard the pastor take his message from Matt. where it tells us the first shall be last and the last shall be first. Only in God’s kingdom would this the place. I thank you so much for sharing this story with others. I could just see the arua around your face as you wrote this story. I hope that it is not true but if it is and you lost a son you will see him again. I’ve lost a son to drugs but I continue to pray and know he can make it better.




How it made me feel: Wonderful.....such a sense of peace when I read another believer’s work.




Did it connect to the human experience?
Oh, yes because God does know and see all.

Thanks for wonderful writing.

These are beautiful and I think we should honor our veteran’s all the time not just on holidays. You know they saluted my Father n Law in the casket but I can’t ever remember them doing that while he was alive. That’s what I wrote upon for the 4th of July. We have to remember to honor them day and night, any day, in any way.
