HollyMerry, you are quite the poet. I write silly rhymes while you create sensational poems. I enjoyed this very much.

Review of My 21st Birthday  
Review by Norman
Rated: E | (5.0)
I always make it a point to read items from the portfolio of whoever reads and reviews my stuff. And I always try to find something to review in return. I am always hoping to be able to return a 5-star rating. You made it easy with this one. If this is truly non-fiction, then it is truly inspirational. Great story and I'm glad things worked out for you. (I hate peas - always pick them out from soup and potpies.)

Shawn, You certainly do like your word play. I don't know how fast everyone else catches on, but I see it right away and enjoy it immensely. Always fun to read your items.
(Do you like the band Meatloaf? I love the lyrics of those songs.)

Hah! Clever and amusing. I enjoyed reading it. Short stories are hard but you delivered a very nice one.

Review of Our Escape  
Review by Norman

Very nice - good rhythm and rhyme (AABB can be difficult to maintain), and very good story. (One suggestion - first stanza - "pass on" instead of "pass in".)

Wow! This is heavy reading this early in the morning.
Life and death. Eternal death.
(I do not believe in a life after death, but what do I know?)
I am not a Shakespeare fan - I've never read Macbeth. And I do wonder if Shakespeare put so much thought into everything he wrote.
All that being said, your article was very interesting, informative and entertaining. I will make it a point to read more of your entries.

Clever and fun to read. I enjoyed this.
One comment - you may have a typo where you say They'll surely be a raid. You may want There'll instead of They'll.

Review of Helping Mother  
Review by Norman
Rated: E | (5.0)
I liked this. Very enjoyable - and a lesson worth following. Good rhyming scheme. Regarding the rhythm, I would make one suggestion. Instead of It's actually something very grand, try It actually is something very grand.. It flows a little easier.
Or just ignore me. I hate it when someone gives me advice like this and I'll bet you do too. I really did like your poem.

Review of Abby

Rated: E | (5.0)
We've had two wonderful dogs and we still miss them after many years. After they passed, the worst time was when we came in the door and they were not there to greet us. Nice sentiments and well done,

Very touching and heartfelt. My only suggestion is to bump up the print size - maybe 4.5.

I don't know where you come up with all of this stuff, but it is actually interesting and fun to read. Another job well done. (One typo on the last line of the first paragraph - your instead of you're.)

Very timely ... and disturbing. I haven't read 1984 in a long time, but I should probably re-read it now.

Interesting article. Most people seem to be either dog people or cat people, but I like both. You just have to understand them and don't expect a cat to act like a dog. I have written multiple poems about dogs, but also three poems about cats. Thanks for sharing this.

Nicely done. I've also written about stars, but this makes me think of them differently.

Review of Snow Flurry  
Review by Norman
Rated: E | (4.5)
Janina, You certainly present a good image of someone snuggling up inside a warm house on a wintry day, just watching the snow fall and lost in thought. Very enjoyable. And I noted that you use the rhyming pattern ABAB, which can be tricky.
I have one poem about sledding and one about skiing:
Sledding!
Downhill Racer
Keep writing,
Jim

Review of Sunrise  
Review by Norman
Rated: E | (5.0)
Janina, As you know, poems don't have to rhyme. That is just my failing that that is all I can do.

Your poem is very descriptive and gives depth, definition, texture and flavor to a sunrise that is a treat. Very nicely done.

To my understanding, there are three basic elements to writing rhymes: the rhyming pattern, the rhythm and the story itself. You have nailed all three in this delightful poem. (I have read numerous poems of yours and they are all excellent.) I like the rhyming pattern, the rhythm is consistent, and the story is very amusing. Nicely done.
