Review of Lest We Forget  
Review by Billy D Dursens
Rated: E | (4.5)
Nice, short, concise in the point wanting to be made.....I really liked this short piece.....job well done....

As others have told me, I tell you - keep writing, keep writing, keep writing - writing gives us a unique freedom from a variety of things, people and places.

Prayers/Blessings

Nice, short and to the point.....

While I am not fond of the freestyle poetry, it made the point you seemed to want to make and that is what counts.

Keep writing, keep writing, keep writing....that is what I was told and it is a very good perspective.

Prayers/Blessings

I really like this poem,the pace it sets and the rhyme it shares......

Did find a couple of lines which could've been shortened up as they make the pace stumble just for a moment......

Overall, great job - great story within the poem itself.....makes you want to come back for a sequel.....

Review of Fire and Ice  
Review by Billy D Dursens
Rated: E | (4.0)
Interesting use of fire and ice....I like it.

Descriptive, which to me is a must in a poem of nearly any kind (even those of humor).

Don't feel like readers see much Tanka Form at times, so this was refreshing.

Review of Communication  
Review by Billy D Dursens
Rated: E | (3.5)
Not sure where the title Communication comes in, unless it relates to the two sides of the knife blade.
I do see the line you followed and how some lines can so easily fall in more than one direction.

Review of Sans Title  
Review by Billy D Dursens
Rated: E | (3.0)
I find this poem interesting in the number of emotions it touches on.
I also find this poem a little confusing as to where it was going, but it does make a point for those who hear voices and fight their inner demons on a regular basis.

Interesting....way to use the power of our own insecurities to show how we make judgements on those we think are very different from us.....
At first I felt you left the reader hanging at the end, but in re-reading the last couple of paragraphs I then realized you finished in the best way you could.....
Look forward to reading some of your works again....thanx

More along my kind of poetry....ones with a basic count and rhyme.......
I like how you bring the reader along with what appears to be a trip, then zap us into what was a dream.....a dream of hope, the kind of hope you needed when facing such adversity......
With the exception of a couple of lines that almost seemed out of step, very well written....thanx for sharing.

Review of The Journey  
Review by Billy D Dursens
Rated: 13+ | (3.0)
Cute short story with the option of various degrees of interpretation to what the light at the end represents.
At first I thought you left me hanging in the end, but then realized you were putting the reader in a wonderful position of thought, imagination or interpretation.
Enjoyed, look forward to reading more of this writers works.
