Thank you, Netty,
This brief piece of encouraging challenge to continue in prayer and lean on the LORD every day of my life is appreciated.
Keep on writing and sharing and praising our God.

Hi, Dragon online,
I like your play on words in this brief poem.

This poem was recommended by WDC as I posted a poem I wrote about my precious grandkids. I am so glad I followed the suggestion and read it!
I am tearing up as I remember the smell and feel of a newborn grandchild!
Joy on earth. Hope in our arms.
Thank you for sharing this lovely poem.
It made me smile.

Review of A Simple Love  
Review by iluvhorses
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (5.0)
I noted you had posted this little poem recently and am gratefully returning a review on it after your kind, thoughtful review of my poem.
The title is appropriate to the poem and yet there is a great variety in the poet's descriptions of his time with his love: in the moonlight, in the sun. He describes her power to cast away evil and to pick up his beating heart off the floor.
This "simple" love is powerful and amazing.
Surely it is a gift from God.

Review of A Mare's Nose

Pony Tale, I have never before read a poem about a mare's nose. Therefore, I can't compare it to anything. Which is fine since this one of a kind poem deserves a category all its own. I truly enjoyed the imagery and subject.

I love the idea of this poetry review forum. I hope it is still active. I sent a review request through the review system, it may expire before you can see it. If it does, I'll request the review through here.
Keep up the great work!

Review of Your Voice  
Review by iluvhorses
Rated: ASR | (4.5)
Melody,
This free verse poem reverberates with equal measures of poignancy, loss and bravado as the poet puts on a brave face while reminiscing over this lost love.
The title suits the poem.
The ending lines bring it full circle as the poet muses about a possible reunion and shared strengths.
Overall, I resonated with this poem and it left me feel a bit sad.

Ned,
Just discovered your blog and find it newsy and bright in a friendly sort of way.
I appreciated your blog today about your cover photo.
It brought to mind "Gifts from the Sea" by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
If you have not read it, I highly recommend it.

Review of Sloppy pig  
Review by iluvhorses
Rated: E | (3.5)
Hi, I am digesting my response to this poem...
"exquisite cuisine" holds some appeal to me, however,
I am confused by "intl" in the third line of this poem and it has caused me to
stop and ruminate as I chew my cud over what it may mean.
Overall, this poem develops a vivid image, and is apropos to the title.

I resonate with the poet, so the message has been felt by this reader:
No, it's not weird, this world is a different, unprecedented terrain.
Thank you for sharing and expressing what we are experiencing, and what, I hope, will one day be a memory which we no longer experience.

Review of Packing for Maui  
Review by iluvhorses
Rated: E | (5.0)
*Vignette1*Personal Impression: I feel the yearning to be in Maui to feel the air smell the waves see the beauty. You've taken me there.
*Vignette2*Tone & Mood: Gentle, flowing the words and images painting a serenity. Is there an undercurrent of sad? I can't quite tell.
*Vignette3*Rhyme, Form & Flow: Free verse, this piece flows with images and description, less rhyme.
*Vignette4* Emotional Impact: I feel the need of a deep breath and a pause as I read this piece. And it feels welcome.
*Vignette5*Grammar/Punctuation: No suggestions.

*Vignette6*Write On!

Reading this is painful. Painful like driving past the people begging on so many exit ramps. You have expressed the sad truth of poverty.
What do we do?
You have shone a light on lives trapped.
Now what?
The question echoes in my mind.

Bryan,
Thank you for sharing this brief sci-fi story. I was engrossed in the storyline and saddened by the ending. It is not unrealistic, though. We don't trust what we don't understand.
This piece could use a human proof-reader, do you mind a run through by me?
If you're ok with it, I can give you suggestions. If not, that's fine, too.
Keep sharing your stories. Creativity is evident in your writing.

Jaiam, You've condensed to a fine point the message of Christmas: it is The Gift.
Thank you for sharing this short poem. I appreciated finding it and reading it as all around images of Christmas pop up, yet they lack the real meaning.
Thank you, and

I appreciated your concise points about deeper writing. I must start with reading good writing.
I have been reading James Herriott for recreation, but find that his writing is deep, too, in that it points to the simpler aspects of life which are most important: hard work, relationships, relishing each day as the gift that it is.
Thank you for sharing this brief piece, I will be perusing further on your port.
