Review of Threads  
Review by doubledylan
Rated: E | (4.0)
This poem is brief, yet it expresses so much. No word sounds awkward nor seems misplaced. The imagery with regards to the thread, and the braiding and untangling of it, aptly describes interpersonal relations. I would love to read more poems of this kind.

I sensed that you were feeling nostalgic as you wrote this piece, and it struck a chord in me. I myself belong to a family of expert sewers and "hookers" (crochet enthusiasts). My grandma, my grandma's sister, my mom and aunt are all into sewing, and I was raised in a home where curtains are made, not bought. I'm into counted cross stitch and needlework.

By mentioning the baby blanket, you reminded me of how handmade presents can mean so much more to the recipient -- even more than any store-bought gift. This was such a simple yet honest and heartfelt account of Tuesdays spent with your mom and her friends, but it delighted me in many ways.

Review of Gush Me No Gushes  
Review by doubledylan
Rated: E | (4.0)
I'm glad to read your honest views about reviewing items in this website. As a writer who occasionally reads the works of my friends to critique them, I realize how important it is to be fair and impartial, and not be clouded in my judgement. And yes, it's just as essential to point out weak areas or those that could still use improvement, and not just attempt to build up someone's self-esteem.

This is a wonderful essay. Having picked up the instrument when I was 27 after being convinced by a music teacher that I can learn to play the piano with much practice and patience, I can totally relate to the author's thoughts and feelings. Let it never be said that I didn't get to cross "playing a musical instrument" in my to-do list.

Review of The Scrappy Quilt  
Review by doubledylan
Rated: E | (4.0)
Along with people who can knit and crochet, I hold quilters in the highest regard. And it's such a delight to read a poem talking about the joys and nostalgia brought about by this hobby. Although I felt like it could have been longer, all in all, it was a great piece.

You gave your piece a clever hook; I was immediately intrigued when I read that it was a poem about not being able to write a poem. If this is your first attempt at poetry, I'll give you a rating of four stars for your effort, and the fact that you didn't allow your limitation to stop you from trying. Your material was good, too, lending substance to your lines and stanzas.

Review of She who serves  
Review by doubledylan
Rated: ASR | (4.0)
Right from the first few lines of this piece, I was able to figure out that this was about an unsung hero at work, quietly yet consistently performing her duties. Not everyone aspires to hog the limelight. Some are content with the daily routine of their jobs and find great satisfaction, never mind the fact that they don't often get recognized.
