Review of DREAMS  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: ASR | (4.5)
This is a wistful lil' dude Monty and as usual is nicely penned. I hope the feelings expressed are only poetic fictions, tho' I think there is truth in every poem to some extent. I like to think that I can perceive much from a person's writing. If there wasn't a tad of truth in our poetry why would we feel the need to express and share it?

A nicely penned and pacific poem Turtle! I liked all the sentiments and the way you expressed them as well. You have a way with words that is not seen too often. Write on!

Your rhyming is excellent Jay. Tho' you might want to correct the spelling of "busyness" (unless you did it on purpose.)

Wow Judi!
this Poem is heavy indeed. You would have to be a outdoors lover to write so meaningfully. (in addition to being a good poet!)

Review of April's Folly  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: E | (4.5)
I stand in awe of poets who can write to certain forms and standards. I wish I could do that as effortlessly as you seem to do. I love the form while realizing I could never do this myself. You keep me humble (which is a good thing)

Rated: E | (5.0)
Outstanding Jim!! You made your point w/o being in the least pedantic. I'm spending today trying to review all the entries to date and while they've all been good, your has been by far the best yet.

Review of PILLOW TALK  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: E | (5.0)
Well done Monty! I like a poet who can sometimes write about real life and times instead of always being deep, somber and moody. Nice to see a poem with a humorous side once in a while.

Review of saying goodbye  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Rhyssa I liked this very much (somber tho' it is). I like the repetition of some lines and the slightly archaic feel. My personal preference would be to place the repeated lines at the 2nd and last place in the stanzas. The poem overall has exceptionally good rhythm (not easily done!) A fine write!

Review of Black Water  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Some really great writing on display here. I like poems that have a somewhat old fashioned air about them. The last verse tho'left me wanting two more lines. No matter tho' It's fine just as it is.

Review of Rejected  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: E | (4.0)
Well Sean, your skill at rhyme is displayed to it's fullest here and I do admire rhyme, but the poem itself kinda went over my head. I think it's more my inability to grasp things and themes that are a bit abstract (perhaps due to my advanced age) than anything else. All the technical requisites are fully and well met here. You are obviously a good writer. Well written!

Judi,Judi,Judi! Only good things to say about this nicely flowing, well rhymed, bit of prose. Just the right amount of repetition and alliteration. Shorter poems are what I prefer over the long, rambling type. Short and to the point! Well writ!

Review of Summer Symphonies  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: E | N/A (Review only item.)
Susan, even with all the awesome alliteration gone amok, This was done so well that all I can say is ALLRIGHT! Truly well done. I was delighted with it! Maybe it's just me, but I tend to give poetry a gender quality and I, without seeing your name would have said "this was written be a woman." Women poets (the good ones at least) seem to have a certain sensitivity that male writers are unable to achieve. At least most of them and that includes me. Very deserving of 5 stars. I enjoyed reading it!

Review of In the Trenches  
Review by David O'Hao...
Rated: E | (4.5)
I found much to like in this JUDI and much that I (and most serious poets) CAN WELL RELATE TO. I HAVE NOW GRADUATED FROM NAPKINS,TISSUE, NEWSPAPER AND POSTIT PADS TO A 2 IN 1 COMPUTER THAT ELIMINATES ALL THAT CLUTTER, THOUGH THERE ARE STILL TIMES OF ENVELOPES AND PAPER SCRAPS. THIS IS THE BEST WRITTEN AND MOST RELATABLE I'VE READ SO FAR. GOOD LUCK, DAVID O
