Review of Keep me safe  
Review by 50's Child
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Thank you for sharing this, it is truly beautiful. I felt like I was the actual person in this story, and can relate to it, as I just lost my wonderful sister-in-law to dementia. The last few days before she passed, I spoke to her, even though she didn't know me or could not respond back to me. I told her that I knew she was in there, and I prayed so hard for her to find the peace she needed.
I used to think that cancer was the worst illness to have, but dementia is the worst disease to watch a loved one endure. It slowly takes your memories away, and your brain stops giving directions to your body, and you die.
I admire any family or caretakers who watch their loved ones go on this journey.
This was written with great detail, and allows the reader to step inside for a personal trip.
Thank you again.

What a wonderful, heartwarming story, not only for animal lovers, but for anyone who has known the love of an animal or even a human in their lifetime. I felt that this story was written well, good grammar, but most of all, told the life and times of a very dear friend. So sorry you lost Buster, but he left you with so many good memories to cherish. Writing about the things we know works best for most of us writers, so keep writing, please.

Review of Oak

Since I love nature, I thought this was a feel good story. This is written really well, with a vivid picture of some of God's greatest creations. The words were written with
beautiful emotion, putting the reader in the forest, too.
I like to do reviews, and really enjoyed reading your work. When I read something, and it touches my emotions, I feel that the author has met his purpose and meaning for writing the story. Grammar and spelling were good, but I think the emotions and feelings are more important. Everything flowed with beauty and grace.
I hope to read more of your work, as you are very interesting.

Review of To Grass & Water  
Review by 50's Child
Rated: E | (5.0)
What a beautiful poem, one that not only speaks the words, but paints a picture for the readers. This is well written, good grammar and spelling. The words flow easy, maybe from living it or the experience of working a ranch. Nothing like growing up on a farm or ranch, working hard, but at the end of the day, reaping the rewards. The air is clean and there is enough "quiet" to allow for dreaming or writing down whatever runs through your mind.
A farm or ranch leaves room for clean, pure living and the love of a family by your side.
I look forward to reading more of your work, as I have really enjoyed this one.

This is a great story and I love dogs, too . My brother lives on a corner lot and takes in all the strays that seem to find their way to his house.
I think the word has gotten out that the "dog man" on the corner will take any you don't want or can't keep. Animals are such a joy and they bring
love and smiles to those who treat them kindly.
Thanks for your story and memories to share.

Review of Brother's

What a beautiful and heart warming poem! The words are well written and paint the picture of your childhood in a perfect way.
I don't write poetry but enjoy reading the work of other authors who do. I like to read the ones that take me on a journey to the place and time in the mind of the author.
You have done a great job, and it sounds like you came from humble beginnings and are a better person for it. Today we have all of the modern wonders of the world and medicine to help us live longer, but this generation has missed out on living the Golden Rule and depending on the family for comfort in times of need.
I hope to read more of your work and make each day count.

Welcome to WDC and I really enjoyed your poem. I don't write poetry and know nothing about the forms, but I review when I read one and understand what the author is
saying. If it tells a story or makes me sad or laugh, I feel the need to send a review. Your poem tells how life can be, straight on. I have found myself in this cycle of friends and strangers, many times during my life, and it is what it is. You can spend hours or days trying to figure out what happened or how to fix things, but it never works out.
You have a nice way with your words and should keep writing. Good luck and make each day count.

Review of Hurt  
Review by 50's Child
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
This is a very profound and heartfelt poem, and I enjoyed reading it very much. Your pain and feelings come through the words you have written so that anyone reading
it, will feel it. I have known mothers and daughters with relation problems, and your poem touched my heart. Your writing is good and speaks to the reader in a most
beautiful way.

I don't write poetry, but enjoy reading the work of others, especially if it makes me sad or happy. The form, spelling, and grammar are good, but mostly I look for
a message from the words. Good luck with your writing and WDC is a great place to test your poems and stories.

I loved the wit and the splash of colors the words were written with. This is a fun poem, but paints a picture of some neighbors I have heard about. Your words put the reader in the adventure and fun of it all. I don't have experience of writing poems, but love to read the work of others, especially when they make me laugh or cry. The form is good, as well as the spelling and grammar. I think you have more talent than you give yourself credit for, so keep writing and bringing smiles to others.

Review of what am i to do?  
Review by 50's Child
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.0)
I found this to be very interesting and well written. The content speaks words of wisdom for each to practice in life. We are our own worst enemy, and our own self-help at the same time. You offer words to encourage thinking and living life. The human ego is a mind boggling thing, but under control can work in a positive way, too.
The spelling and grammar are good, but the message and content are the factor in which I like to review. This is very good and your writing is going in the right direction.
Keep writing and make each day count.

Review of My Garden  
Review by 50's Child
Rated: E | (3.5)
I found this short, but poetic piece to be very warm in thoughts of maybe your younger years? At least that is what I am feeling, as I find myself looking back to those years, as well. Time and life both flow together, and go way too fast. As the saying goes, "in the blink of an eye". I enjoyed reading this and will look forward to reading more of your work. Make each day count because the older you get, the faster they go.

I enjoyed reading your poem, as this is one I can relate to, also. I have never tried to write any form of poetry, but admire the authors who do. You have done a nice job projecting the down fall of most of us in your poem, with honest and true thoughts. When I read poems or stories with a message I like to review and pass some praise to the author. This is very good and hope you keep writing words that inspire or make for good discussions.

Welcome to WDC and thank you for writing one of the most beautiful stories that I have read in a very long time.

You have captured the magic of Christmas and described the feelings and love with your words. I truly felt the peacefulness fall on me as I was reading

your story, and was taken to a place that was quiet and filled with love and wonderment of the season. I'm sure this is some of the same feelings the

three wise men were feeling when they saw baby Jesus for the first time. How wonderful it would be if the world could experience this peace every where.

I hope to read more of your work and good luck with your writing.

I loved this poem and once again, you have written words to make us smile. I'll smile every time I hear "Nights in White Satin".. :) :)

I'm sure this is the actions of many who are over a certain age. I think you should send this poem to Betty White, as she would love it, too.

Writing a poem set to a song is very clever and even better if it's funny. Keep up the good work and who knows, maybe we'll see you on the big screen. :)

Your story speaks for so many people, but they don't know this, or have not found the answers as you have.

I was very moved when reading your story, and want you to know that it is very beautiful and honest.

Having a family is not always the answer to happiness, as you have shown with your story. A person can have family but still be lonely, and I was reminded

of this when reading your story. This was well written and would be an inspiration for anyone who reads it. It would be wonderful to see this published as a self-help

book, giving hope for others who may have lived the same way.

I enjoy doing reviews when something touches my emotions, and want you to know I think you have a lot of talent and hope to see more of your work.

I'm new to WDC and not an expert on writing, but I do enjoy warm, "from the heart" stories.

Keep writing and make each day count.

I thought this was very beautiful, written with heart felt feelings and emotions. This poetry has a nice style, one that I can relate to, as I'm not a poetry writer but I enjoy reading the work of others. The tranquil setting was expressed through your words to the reader, as well as your memories of loved ones.
I hope to read more of your work, so keep writing and make each day count.

First I'd like to say welcome to WDC, and I'm new too, but wanted to say hello and review your poem.
This caught my eye as I am an avid gardener of flowers and vegetables, so I had to read your work. I thought it was very good, and it sent a message that describes nature and all of it's beauty. I admire any author who writes poetry, and enjoy reading the ones written with feeling and passion. Keep writing and hope you enjoy WDC as much as I do.

This is very well written and expresses the fears and thoughts that most of us face from time to time. I like this style of poetry and the way it shows the problems of anxiety and trying to come to terms with it. I have not tried to write poetry, but this style flows and speaks easy, without the challenge of rhyming.
Your writing style comes from real problems and emotions and I like that.
Keep writing and stay positive.

I don't usually read or like Sci-fi, but I found this very interesting and it held my attention all the way to the end of the story. I feel that there is more to be written, or should be, because it has a nice story line. There is suspense, with some twists and turns, and a touch of horror.
The form is well written and reminds me of an old "Twilight Zone" T.V. show.
You have a good start for this story, so keep up the writing.
Good job and good imagination.

I found this to be written with loving thoughts and it's easy to see why it is titled, for someone special. The words speak for your heart and you should be very proud of your writing talent. The technical things I observe, but saw no mistakes. I'm not a poet, but I do love to read the work of others. This poem would be one I would buy if written in a card or book, as the words would fit my love for my daughters or my mother, too. There are so many selfless people in the world who would gladly appreciate this poem, if it was sent to them.

Keep writing and make the world a better place with your beautiful words.

Your poem is very beautiful and from your heart. So few words, yet true in every way. This poem speaks of the peace we can maintain, if we walk in faith.

This is very well written, describes the story with a video touch, and takes your readers to the room with your character. At least that is what I was feeling when I read it and enjoyed the story and the fact that it could or should continue to the next "hour" and week.

You have a nice talent for writing and I hope you write many more stories. The grammar and spelling looked good, but I usually just pay attention to the story line and if I can feel what the author is feeling or not. Good luck and happy writing.......

I can see why this won a contest, as it is really outstanding. Every word is true and should be practiced by everyone, everyday. It is so much easier to be positive and offer a smile instead of a negative, critical remark. Impulse thinking and being too quick to judge has caused many to have problems. When people stay in the negative zone, it is like having a dark cloud hang over their head, and projects to other people. Your poem is the perfect example of feelings from the heart, soul, and the Golden Rule.

This is beautiful and well written and I enjoyed reading it, and I got such a feeling of showing kindness towards others.
Keep writing and smiling. :)

This was truly a beautiful story, well written and from the heart. When I read something this touching, I like to tell the author, and hope to read the next one.
Memories should be cherished, written, and shared with other loved ones. It's good to have these feelings and stories to remind us how lucky we are to have
a special mother in our lives. Your writing flows from your memories, be it sad or happy, and you should be very proud of this essay.
Keep writing and stay positive each day.

Review of Memoirs  
for entry "Uncle Nick
Review by 50's Child
Rated: E | (5.0)
This is wonderful and your story made me feel like I was there, too. You have recalled your memories of your uncle with much feeling straight from the heart. This is very well put together and would make a great novel or short story based on your family and life. Too many times I think us older people feel that we don't have anything to say or pass on to others, but we do, and it's called history of living and learning.
I've really enjoyed reading this and hope to read some of your other work, as well.
