Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This item is a poll about reviews. I agree that I'd rather have a critic rip me apart and make me a better writer than to lie to me about it. I published a book once and the reviewer missed my point. he ripped me apart but I learned a ton.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the responses. Most people prefer brutal honesty.

What I liked least: Nothing, thus the five stars.

Review of Dog

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a diamante poem about a dog. I love diamante poetry and I love dogs so the combination works well for me. You write each line according to the rules as far as I can tell. The rules for diamante have changed over the years. At one time the bottom few lines were directly opposed to the top. You did well.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked that it was form poetry.

What I liked least: Nothing, thus the five stars.

Review of Season of Passion  
In affiliation with Space Blog  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about love. It begins reading as a pros and cons view of the seasons and ends with an expression of love for another person. I like the way you weaved the romance into it without writing about romance. This was a nice poem!

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I appreciated the balance between pros and cons. I especially appreciated the romantic twist at the end.

What I liked least: Nothing. I usually dock a half-point for free verse but this had a steady, even flow.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is an article about sleep disorders. The article caught my eye because I wear a CPAP for sleep apnea, take stimulants for narcolepsy, and have mild restless legs syndrome. Your article is easy to read and very detailed. I gather that you are either a sleep tech or work in the field some way. A doctor would likely have used technical terms with no explanation of them but when you used them you explained them. Good job!

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked that you addressed this often misunderstood problem. I am glad you addressed this.

What I liked least: If anything it would be the length. I usually only read poetry because it is short.

Review of My Haikus!  
for entry "The Trail
In affiliation with disABILITY WRITERS GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This was a haiku about one of those forest trails that appears and then suddenly disappears. The haiku describes how the trail appears tempting a traveler to follow it into the forest and then it disappears as suddenly as it began. It makes one wonder what made the trail and if that something met a sudden end.

Your spelling and grammar: appeared great to me.

What I liked most: I liked that it was a traditional haiku. It was about nature as haiku usually is. The syllable count was spot on and it had the unexpected twist at the end like traditional haiku.

What I liked least: Nothing thus the five stars.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This was a romantic fairy tale told in the form of prose poetry. It had a good story line and plot. It seemed almost like a little girl's dream. Perhaps it was yours. If so I hope your Prince Charming has arrived since this writing.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the plot. It was romantic.

What I liked least: The format. I prefer rhyme and meter over free verse and prose.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem expressing distaste for President Trump. A lot of people didn't like him. I understand. He was not a career politician. He wasn't loyal to any political party except for the bid for reelection. He was not owned by the lobbyists or the media and spoke what was on his mind like a typical New Yorker. He was obnoxious and arrogant. Now he's gone and replaced by a president who equally worries others. You can't please everybody.

Your spelling and grammar: looked fine to me.

What I liked most: I liked the patriotism that this poem showed.

What I liked least: Nothing thus the five stars.

Review of Thank you God  
In affiliation with Space Blog  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is an essay about being thankful to God in all situations. As the essay says gratitude is not just something one should feel for the good things in life. Gratitude is something one should have in all situations. As a former farmer I have found that the richest soil is found in the valleys and in areas where there is a lot of decay. This is also true for our spiritual lives. The ridges of life are wonderful, but it is the valleys of life that bring the most growth. This essay teaches that we should be thankful for those valleys.

Your spelling and grammar: looked okay to me. Nothing popped out.

What I liked most: I liked the insights of this essay.

What I liked least: Nothing, thus the five stars.

Review of Prince Remembered

Rated: E | (4.5)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is an essay about the singer Prince. I was never a big fan of Prince, basically because I never really listened to a whole lot of anything. I was exposed to the sounds as others listened to music and television, but I never really got into it.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked that you expressed what it is you liked about Prince. You did not talk in generalities but named specific reasons.

What I liked least: It wasn't poetry.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This poem is from a person regretting having to leave another individual. The first person could have prevented the second person from leaving by simply saying "Don't go" or "I love you. Yet the first person fails to do so.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked that you gave the person the option. I regret they missed the cue.

What I liked least: the format. I prefer rhyme and meter over free verse and prose.

Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about not taking things for granted. The author is telling the girl to slow down and notice everything around her as opposed to blazing through live with blinders on.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the way you worded this. I could just see a mother scolding a child as the child walks along as if they are noticing nothing.

What I liked least: The format. I prefer rhyme and meter over free verse and prose.

Review of War Bride

Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This poem expresses a very real truth that is often overlooked. That truth is that when a spouse is deployed the entire family is at war. I respect the sacrifice you have made as a war bride.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked that you brought attention to this often-overlooked fact.

What I liked least: Nothing, thus the five stars. I usually reduce it half a star for format as I prefer rhyme and meter but I loved the message in this one.

My impression of this item was: This was a poem about a person missing the green of summer. I have this every winter. Summer always seems to fly by and the beauty and green of summer pass. Then winter seems to drag.

Your spelling and grammar: looked okay to me.

What I liked most: I liked that you talked about green and your summer nook.

What I liked least: The format. I prefer rhyme and meter.

My impression of this item was: I like the idea behind this C-note shop, although I don't know that it would see much. A lot of members cannot afford it. With the economy now suffering due to COVID layoffs and other factors I doubt you'll have much business. However, I hope it goes over well and that you are able to make it profitable.



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the idea of a merit badge with a C-note.

What I liked least: Nothing thus the five stars.

Review of Set on fire  
In affiliation with Space Blog  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem based on Joseph Campbell's quote about love. The poem breaks the love down into it's various stages starting with what I like to call the "honeymoon stage" when the love is still new and the flames of infatuation burn brightly. The poem describes the dance the two lovers go through as they dance through the various stages of love. It ends with the lover's drawing apart as the newness of romance wears off and the realities of having a relationship set in. Love is actually a lot of hard work. It means being willing to accept the flaws along with the good.



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the rhyme of course.

What I liked least: The flow was a little rough in places. It could have been the way I was reading it but it felt interrupted.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: First of all, thank you for the trinket. I agree with you. Christian Hip-Hop can carry the message too. It would not be my way of preaching, but as Paul says, it doesn't matter as long as Jesus is preached. Young people can relate to this and we need to capture today's youth with the gospel.



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the message of hope.

What I liked least: Hip-Hop is not my cup of tea.

Review of The Messiah

Rated: E | (5.0)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about our Lord Jesus Christ. As a Christian myself all I can say is Bravo! Glory to God. This poem wraps the sum of the gospel up in a few words when it says He is risen. Many people will be regretting the fact that He is risen. I have people ask all the time how a loving God can send anybody to Hell. I tell them that God won't send anybody to hell but a lot of people are choosing hell over God.



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I loved the message and wish more would hear it. Perhaps you would like to join my Bible blog? It's called Take up your cross. Right now we are in Proverbs.

Review of A Day Spent  
In affiliation with Space Blog  
Rated: E | (4.5)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This seems to be a poem about the first flowers of spring. The rich use of metaphors such as a school-age love affair and childish writing of poetry give this a special flair. The hint and the allusion of a spring scene make me long even more for summer as we struggle through the cold days of winter. Good job.



Your spelling and grammar: looked okay to me.

What I liked most: The metaphors as I already said.

What I liked least: the format. I prefer rhyme and meter over free verse and prose.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about life and the insincerity and seeming meaninglessness of it all. The poet complains that we are not given a choice but to be born into this mess. I personally do not see life in this way. The poet goes on to consider the inconsideration of others and finally ends with saying along with the Teacher: "All is vanity."



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the near rhyme.

What I liked least: I prefer rhyme.

Review of Alone

Rated: ASR | (4.5)
Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about loneliness. Loneliness is a cruel and wicked task master. It eats away at the fabric of one's being. Man was not made to be an isolated being. We are herd animals and we need the acknowledgement and care of each other if we are to thrive. This poem seems almost suicidal in ideation. If this is the case I urge you to seek help. Call 1-800-273-8255.



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I like that you were able to express this darkness.

What I liked least: the format. I prefer rhyme and meter.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about first love. The author is referring to her husband of nearly three decades as if she had just met and fallen in love with him. This is the type of love needed in all relationships. If everybody held marriage as sacred like this there would be no divorce. Kudos to you!



Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the lesson taught in this poem.

What I liked least: The format. I prefer rhyme and meter poetry.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about the passage of time. It transpires vvery much like age. The older I get the faster time seems to pass. I know time has not changed but rather my perception of it has changed. Your poem captures this experience well starting from the slow passage of time in youth and picking up the pace thereafter.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked the way you expressed and capture the human experience of time.

What I liked least: Nothing thus the high score.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem, I believe anyway, about those incredible lost moments we all seem to feel from time to time. It describes that feeling of lostness or disconnection with reality that seems to grip us. Nothing seems to make sense to us.

Your spelling and grammar: looked alright to me.

What I liked most: If my interpretation was correct, and it may not be, you described the evil that lurks within.

What I liked least: The format. I prefer rhyme and meter.

Made by Lilli

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a shape poem about falling and it is shaped like a tear drop so that it expresses what falls and why they fall. As a counselor I know that tears do indeed fall to allow us to stand again. They are our safety release mechanism. They serve as a safety valve to release pent up emotions. Once they fall we stand once more. Well expressed!

Your spelling and grammar: looked spot on to me.

What I liked most: I liked that it subtly made the point using both words and shapes.

What I liked least: Nothing, thus the high score.

I came by your port today and decided to give you a review as well. After all, Anniversary Reviews Forum and Space Blog was designed to get you reviews.

My impression of this item was: This is a poem about the rollercoaster ride called grief. You lost your grandma (my condolences) and do not know how you are supposed to feel about that. There is a sense of relief that she is no longer suffering mixed with a feeling of guilt for not crying about the loss. I have studied grief a good bit and one thing I can tell you is that there is no right way to grieve. What you are feeling or were feeling is exactly what you are meant to feel. There is no reason to beat up on yourself for not following a certain pattern. We all deal with grief differently.

Your spelling and grammar: looked good to me.

What I liked most: I liked that you are able to recognize and process these feelings.

What I liked least: Nothing.
