Review of Snowflake  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: E | (5.0)
I absolutely love this poem. It reminded me of my own experience of trying to capture snowflakes on my tongue. It triggered a delightful and playful memory. My favorite lines are 'falling softly from the skies, landing ever so gently on his cheek'. Those lines really stood out to me. Thank you for sharing the poem and giving us the prompt and assignment. I appreciate it. Thank you, Dave.

Best regards,
Imogen Elliott

I enjoyed reading this poem dispite it's dark nature. Life isn't life without both. You need bad to have and good and vice versa. Interesting to wonder about where that kind of thinking and mindset began. My favorite lines are the entire first stanza and the last stanza. Excellent work. I look forward to reading more of your work. Thoughtful and honest.

Review of The Right Words  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: E | (5.0)
I found this piece difficult to review, despite enjoying the way it was written. After reading it several times, I struggled to find anything to criticize.
The author's passion was evident throughout the piece, and they did an excellent job of connecting with the audience and conveying a specific emotion.
In the stanzas, I suggest replacing the words 'word' and 'feel' with synonyms or antonyms that better convey the intended message. Visually, the piece is well-structured, and the rhymes flow seamlessly. Overall, it's an inspiring piece that leaves a vivid impression. Keep up the good work!

Review of Oh, Waiter!  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
I really enjoy 6-word stories and I'm hoping to find more like the one you shared. 😊 I look forward to reading more of your work in the future. 📖 Writing in the horror or spooky genre is difficult for me, so your 6-word poem is inspiring. 🤩 I loved your Halloween-themed story! 🎃

I can't even begin to imagine not being able to bid farewell to my loved ones. Your poem deeply resonated with me. Your words conveyed a sense of darkness or burden that you seem to be carrying, but I don't want to assume anything based solely on the pain in your words. I eagerly look forward to reading more of your powerful writing. Keep up the great work!

Review of the Artist's View  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: E | (4.5)
Excellent poem. Your words painted a pretty picture. What I like most about this poem is how you used the colors as the words and showed them visually. I was not too fond of your punctuation error at the end. You forgot to put a period at the end of the last line. Other than that, this is an excellent descriptive piece I enjoyed reading. Well done.

What an excellent piece. I enjoyed reading this, and it flows like a river. I wonder where you found the inspiration for this one? I wouldn't say I liked the title, but other than that, I find nothing wrong with this masterpiece.

Review of THE CHAMBER  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
I enjoyed reading the chamber. Your words painted a crystal clear picture—a picture of a man sentenced to death for crimes he regrets committing. I wonder if these words are from your own experience with prison or from losing someone you love to it. What I like most about your poem is the title and the flow of your words—an excellent and clever write. There is a minor grammatical error; you wrote 'savoir.' It should be savor.' Keep writing and never give up!

Review of Tiny Dancer  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: E | (5.0)
Thanks for sharing your writing. I love this poem. I like the words you chose, the picture your words illustrated. What I like most about this piece are the last two sentences. I like how you ended it with, the first flower of spring. The only thing I don't like about the poem is the line spacing. Other than that I love everything about this poem! Keep writing and excellent work.

Review of The day  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: E | (4.5)
I love this poem! I like the natural flow and rhyme scheme. My favorite part is the last 4 lines. I love how you ended it. The only thing I dislike about your poem is how crowded it looks. You could just hit enter every four lines, or change the spacing of each line. Those are my only suggestions. 4 1/2 out of 5. Keep up the great work and happy writing.

Review of Lisa  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: E | (4.0)
Interesting. I felt as if I was Lisa. I understand Lisa, her frustrations, and her worries about her parents. Maybe, because, at one point in time I was Lisa. Anyway, I have no ill words about this piece. I am, however going to suggest a format change. Keep up the great work. Overall I give this a 4 out of 5 stars.

Wow. Powerful words, and cleverly written. My favorite lines are if these walls had faces they would scream, cry, and shout from all the past lovers The only thing I dislike is the format of the poem. Great work, keep at it.

Thank you for sharing this. I learned many things about the "festival of love". This isn't my religion or practice but I'm not knocking it or you. What I liked most about this piece is, the vivid picture your words painted. Your words paint a clear picture. What I dislike most about your essay is, the number of times you used the words: celebrate, celebration, tradition, and enthusiasm or enthusiastic. For example, the celebration can be replaced by gathering, ceremony, event, fete, fest, festival, carnival, fiesta, or gala. Instead of tradition, you can use convention, custom, heritage, birthright, principles, culture, lifestyle, and so on. Other than that, keep up the great work.

Review of Journal Entry #3

Yes, it is apart of writing. In my opinion, I would have someone other than my partner edit it. Never give up and just keep at it. The long road will definitely be rewarding in the end.

Review of Tired  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: ASR | (3.5)
This poem spoke very loudly to me. I could literally feel the pain, frustration, and emotions as I read each word. You did great work.
What I dislike most about your poem is, the number of times you used the words/phrase, "I'm", "tried", and I'm tried". What I like most about your poem is, the real-life feeling and rawness of your words. Keep on writing and never stop!

Review of Oh Mother  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
This was a very powerful piece of writing. I felt the passion and emotions as I read each word. This is a very touchy subject for a lot of people, so I won't go too in-depth. I felt your pain you felt almost as I read through this poem again. You are so strong, and love your mother so very much. Keep writing it's how I get through everything. Great work.

Review of No Return  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
I enjoyed reading this poem. It painted a vivid image in my mind that is very realistic and relatable. You could use this as a start to a great short story or series of stories. The first and second lines is where I would start my story. A great poem. This is why I enjoy read and review. Keep at it.

Review of Alarm Clock-ed  
Review by Imogen Elliott
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
A very vivid and personal piece of writing. It hit home for me on a personal level because your words the way they are written and the picture it paints....it's as if you had an advance look into a few pages in my personal book of life. The lines that stand out the most are the entire second paragraph, from start to finish. I read this poem 4 or 5 times before I decided to comment on it. Excellent work.
