This is a beautiful written for Megan's April Prince Challenge in 2019 to pay tribute to the Prince . It's been a pleasure to review your poem "Cold Piano Keys" on behalf of "The WDC Angel Army" . This review reflects my opinion only, and I am not a writing expert.
The poet tribute to her favorite star by writing a poem with the song titles Baltimore, Sometimes It Snows in April, Purple Rain, When Doves Cry, Under The Cherry Moon in his poem. His songs have filled her heart since the poet was young.
The main image is wonderful. I like the thoughts evokes of this poem. The title Cold Piano Keys fits this poem.
My favorite lines
“Feel us lift his spirit to the sky,
with lingering half-notes in the distance
calling us in 3/4 time
to ride our childhood bikes home”
In the poem, the poet reminisce the TV shows of 60's. Her love of 60’s shows Dark Shadows, Gilligan's Island, Green Acres and Peyton Place are still imprinted on her mind and heart which she tells by this line “My memories of the 60's will be with me when I fall asleep and face the morning light.” She could remember the days of Min skirts, trolls, Go-Go Boots, Beatles hair cut styles .
I think this poem would make the readers of 60’s nostalgic. I like the images the poet have painted here.
I really liked the way the poet put out her feelings.

This is so thoughtful poem written for ocean. I like the concept.
Earth is indeed a mother to all. But sadly if we don't pay the respect that she deserves. We don’t even think about our next generation. Our country experiences different types of natural disasters almost every year. Every year we experienced Floods because of the climate change impacts.
I especially liked the lines

Ends up in the ocean by a gust of wind, or rainstorms.”
