Why I chose this piece +I saw this advertised and have written similar pieces

Overall impression of piece: This is a pretty cogent piece. They do kind of sneak up on us. No one plans a crisis

Grammatical and spelling errors In most cases, in without a cap

What I liked?*Smile* Good advice about taking emotion out of the scenario. Suggestions are logical and sequential

Points to Ponder:*Idea* Never answered what is a crisis. Perhaps it is anything that takes us out of our daily rituals and routines

How the piece made me feelI think there are general rules for crisis management. Maybe we could teach our governments> Covid pieces are highlighted in my port

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

Sig made by Sherry B for group members to use

Why I chose this piece Newbie review. Welcome to WDC

Overall impression of piece

Grammatical and spelling errors Reads well. Simple numbers like three spelled out.

What I liked?*Smile* I could see the place and time. I could sense some of the feelings

Points to Ponder:*Idea* To much telling. The poetic outlook often focuses on description and feelings, not telling. There is a lot of telling. Perhaps not the best format. Maybe prose?

How the piece made me feel Kind of like our Covid 19 living. I have felt some of this. Tell us more of yourself in your bio. You are "Grey storm" will a blue logo

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

Why I chose this piece Previous reviewed a piece

Overall impression of piece Before the last days, there will be plagues. Could this be a precursor, or the warm up act.

Grammatical and spelling errors; Seems intact

What I liked?*Smile* We too have seen increased numbers. We have spent money to keep our pathways open. Nobody knows how long

Points to Ponder:*Idea* Beginning and end seem like a scripture. Note what it is. God is a relational God. These truths have been along for a while. He needs His people to form relationships in His name

How the piece made me feel You seem to be using numbers to justify your position. We need to change culture, not just have more friends on facebook. I like the review only selection

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

Cool deal. This is probably stuff I should know but don't. I know most of it exists, but as to a timeline, not so much

You know things, if it seems that you were there with the author. Most new parents have felt this way. Not familiar with the Book of Mormon story, but I get the gist. New mothers look at every aspect of the newborn, including smell. If they don't pray, they certainly should. They will later.

Saw this in a newsletter. Grew up in Alberta and did spend some time on a farm. Spent summers on a farm in Montana. I know something of the life.

Stooks is a mystery to me. Maybe a parenthesis to show what it means. On a farm, everybody worked. Mostly, they didn't get paid. This is definitely life that most don't know about.

There is a lot of scripture here. I am glad you typed most of it out. Leaving the version is often helpful. All of these seem to related well to each other. We are pretty much human like you. Procrastinate means forward to the future if you break up the latin roots. Memmorizing scripture is a good first step but we have to allow God to change us.

The only way we get anywhere is a change of ownership. With the devil, it would be a hostile takeover. The Holy Spirit comes along side

Why I chose this piece Return of some of your review notice

Overall impression of piece: It expresses your appreciation of community

Grammatical and spelling errors: Seems ok. No errors

What I liked?*Smile* I always like short, within reason

Points to Ponder:*Idea* On the other hand, give me specifics of why you feel that way. How are they the soul of the community? How are they important to you?

How the piece made me feel Go deeper. Use a topic you feel intently about

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

I am unaware of the poetic version you list. Many will leave a note as to what they had in mind or a footnote. It is kind of a catchy little piece. It does flow pretty well. The ressurrection and our ressurections seem to be the same thing.

We don't need perfection because we'll never get there. That is what Christ's sacrfice was about. We strive to be like Him

Pretty cool piece. I cab see and feel all of this. It is definitely scripted to ensure certain recollections, As a reader, I was there. Putting all the sights and sounds gives it its realism

I sense though you mean bathe not bath. It is not about cleaning but immersing

In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (4.0)
I like starting with gods with a small g. No we haven't had a promotion. Interesting the Nature is capitalized. Nature is our fate. We our natural beings.

WE are fighting in a hell of our own making. What do we do to be blessed by God? Maybe the right thing regardless of our own personal advantage would be a start.

I think there is more here. I find poetry a little confining, so I don't write much

Fill out your bio block. It helps to know something of whom we are reviewing

I pretty much get this. I think I too am a thinker in a world that kind of says "Duh". Do we lack the ability to quest after truth? What happened to that? I think Simon and Garfunkle had a song called the dangling conversation.

Can we be real? Are we willing to meet each other wherever we are right now.

Pretty cool piece

I kind of like this. Saw this advertised on a side bar. Of course I have been married for 46 years so aged wine ain't so bad. It is evocative. Drunk young might be a noun or a verb. There is no doubt about what you mean.

Picky, but WDC can be that way. I would upgrade its rating to 13 or 18. We have a lot of young kids on the site. Personally, I found nothing objectionable.

I saw this unspiritual work and looked at it. Your work has so many banners by it. I thought they were the United Nations.

I never thought of a brown leaf as an ocean survivor. We are all part of a continuum. Shakespeare said it well with his stages of life

It might work better if you start with an I marrator in verse one. Maybe let the child play in the leaves. "Scrunch"
There is a lot of feeling in this work

This is real. I get this. Alcohol is not my thing, but eating and drinking stuff that wouldn't be good for me is. There is a fight going on here. There always is

Hurt people hurt people is pretty close to a cliche. No one knows for sure who said it first. Everybody said it it seems. It is even a song. This isn't new. I know that hurt people hurt people might be better. Then you can put blood on the ground. Make it real. I am not sure this can be controlled by an alcohol fire. A divine fire is best

Dallas Willard wrote a book called renovation of the soul. It is a very heavy read. If the body controls the soul then we will make very bad choices

Hitchhikers guide was a wonderful entertainment. I have to admit it. I read all five books of the trilogy.

I am not sure of your contest, but science is far from absolute. It changes, sometimes daily. Pasteur had to prove that life was not spontaneously manufactured. God is created by a five year old boy scared of the dark. If this is to be a reasonable argument, How do we explain the monumental sacrifices made in the name of love and God throughout the centuries. I know you could twist this and bring up the Crusades, but I am not convinced that was God-driven

God does not exist unless someone believes in Him. The Bible doesn't say that and gives widespread evidence of apostasy. Sometimes He sent a prophet

You have no absolute truths to offer except that God is a fable. I think Hitchhiker was written with a couple of cases of beer and he laughed all the way to the bank. What is truth? What is love? A successful life is built on them. There has to be more to offer than this.

You are right to have your own opinion. This is entertaining, but not a great argument

Looking through articles and saw this one. You even have pectoral evidence that would probably stand up in a legal court. This is reminiscent of Allan Funt, "Candid camera" They did pretty wild things there too

I am sure they are thinking, "My they are quiet." What they are thinking is give me some more.

Why I chose this piece This came up on a random review

Overall impression of piece: I generally don't read these little alone comment.

Grammatical and spelling errors No errors

What I liked?*Smile* We think we know everything. I remember a lot of what others never hear. The benefit of pushing 70. Do we question with our answer running

Points to Ponder:*Idea* Fit the framework well. It resolved itself in a few words. Most, do not.

How the piece made me feel Maybe being green works, if you are a frog. If you're not...nnot so much

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

Review of Two Months Ago  
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (5.0)
To write something new in the poetic world about Covid is unusual. This is how it feels. Healing is an interesting word. It is entirely different than cure. It means to make whole. Maybe we needed to go off by ourselves to figure out somethings about existence. Oldpeople have their days at the grocery store--who would have thought it.

Good thingshave happened. In China, people are evangelizing because they can't be recognized in masks. You are absolutely right. This is strange

Rhyme schemes and rhythm seem to add to the piece. This is a feeling piece. You captured it well

Why I chose this piece Interested in the virus. Have a science background

Overall impression of piece: The world is still fighting rabies from the early 1900. It is still endemicin three counties. I have apiece in my history section

Grammatical and spelling errors Some punctuation before the quote, at least a comma. I might use a colon, Comma after Sussex. This is an appositive. After relief, a question mark

What I liked?*Smile* Conclusions are justified. You have real facts to back you up. Liked your use of quotes, except for punctuation

Points to Ponder:*Idea* Could use some references. At the very least, include a url

How the piece made me feel You are on the right track

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

Why I chose this piece Part of heath care and viral outlook

Overall impression of piece: We've never benign anage that needs so much encouragement. You do have real answers

Grammatical and spelling errors Since Lord and savior are the same person, perhaps is aware would be better.

What I liked?*Smile* I liked your rhymes. They seem to add to flow and meter. Yoou do have the right attitude

Points to Ponder:*Idea* This isn't easy even for Christians. What are we to do and be?. Without some practicalities of living for Christ we don't get much help

How the piece made me feel: If it is not the virus,it may well be something else. It is a complicated time. I have three Caronna pieces only log. Two are highlighted. One is in history. None have been reviewed.

Why I chose this piece Who is not interested in what we are going through

Overall impression of piece I am assuming Christian with the Lord noted. (Do capitalize) I am getting something out of this too

Grammatical and spelling errors ??. is unusual

What I liked?*Smile* I do like the poetic things in here. I feel those

Points to Ponder:*Idea* You say a lot of things but don't give particulars--like driving animals to extinction. Our importance is directed towards health. Would be better if purpose or something

How the piece made me feel Do we live in a poetic world or a thought one? I personally think we need more thought.

Why I chose this piece You have a lot of truth here. It is the thing to know in our time

Overall impression of piece I worked in medicine for 30 years. Generally masks are good for about 30 minutes

Grammatical and spelling errors: No errors

What I liked?*Smile* Well organized. I am sure you are right about it not going away until the vaccine

Points to Ponder:*Idea* There were thoughts that we wouldn't have enough ventilators. That too hasn't happened. False results need a footnote or a url

How the piece made me feel As Christians, we need to obey the law of the land. EvenRomans (13) were too be obeyed. Check out my piece. We are still battling Polio (2219942). Thanks for writing this. Facts are important

Why I chose this piece I was looking at another philosophical piece and saw this one attached

Overall impression of piece. We think we are sos smart, but reality says the world is filled with stuff we don't know anything about--like dark matter.

Grammatical and spelling errors: reads well no errors

What I liked?*Smile* You have ultimate questions here. We live in realities that we can't begin to fathom. I get that and agree.

Points to Ponder:*Idea* Your fourth stanza has a lot of realities that are hard to fathom, You could probably do another piece to explain all of that.

How the piece made me feel Is life random--a coin flip. I am not sure of that one. It seems we are a myth without semblance of reality. There go all the heroic classics

Hope this helps. Use my ideas as your creativity alchemy deems fitting.

Why I chose this piece Part of the self help section

Overall impression of piece: You definitely know what you think and there is little equivocating

Grammatical and spelling errors: Reads well. No errors

What I liked?*Smile* Pretty defined format.

Points to Ponder:*Idea* We are kind of defined in how we interact with others. A lot of this is about what you think. There is more . Feelings define us too. Images would tell us more about your journey of self-discovery

How the piece made me feel Socrates said know thy self. Speaking of that, fill in your bio block. It does help us as reviewers.
