Review of A Warmer Season  
Rated: E | (4.0)
I love what you did with the prompts and that you used a difficult form as the sonnet. I enjoyed your inclusion of a summer constellation.

I appreciate and frequently participate in the shorter word length contests here on writing.com. Your piece introduced me to a contest I have not seen before. Your argument for the Bible is an honest one. However, the Bible, like life has many contradictions and inconsistencies. But I am not here to argue, only to rate. The only criticism I have is I thought this contest was flash fiction, and yours is more essay, not fiction. Nevertheless, happy writing!

I enjoy reading your work and it is not in my nature to criticize another writer. I am a reader not an editor. I have a suggestion though, I would like to see your deeply held beliefs with more personal and original imagery and situations. It would add power and authenticity to your writing. Blessings.

Review of Pretty Ugly Words  
Rated: 18+ | (3.5)
Thanks for your octet poem. Discovered a new short poetic form. Wondering if this is a real film? Sounds like a fun thing for a Halloween treat. You might want to ferret out a movie, I believe called Cat People or Cat Woman. Old, black and white. Creepy. Always enjoyed The 50-foot woman, too. Blessed Halloween/Samhain.

Review of Pretty Ugly Words  
Rated: 18+ | (3.0)
Curious as to what the slider tool is. Here in Florida the change of summer to fall is much more subtle. October is my birth month and favorite. Also first and second marriages in October--and inexplicably First Holy Communion. I find the last lines confusing, flu ills, summer kills? Summer kills flu ills or flu kills? Blessings.

Review of Arête  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Yes, making up a personal poetic form is difficult. Congratulations on taking the leap! (pun intended). Arete also has a meaning of aspiring to excellence. Perhaps your poem has that meaning as well. I first encountered the word in the context of a play seen locally about a year ago. Arete. Happy writing!

Review of Gargoyle  
Rated: E | (4.0)
AH, yes--Walter Pidgeon. Do you think any younger writing.com members will get this reference. I enjoyed this personification poem and your linking the gargoyle to an avian friend.

In the fifth line I believe you spelled eerie wrong. I was unable to get the photo prompt to open so I cannot comment on that as a source of inspiration. The sense of horror is prevalent in the poem. I'd like to know--where is this door? Was it ever opened? Is it a phantasm of imagination? Happy writing!

a delightful story of childhood. I hope it is true. I think when we have cooking disasters we have a story to tell. With a magnificent culinary concoction perhaps not so much. Happy writing and reminiscing. I don't know what the taboo words were, but your story flowed well without them.

Well, as someone who has been fat most of their life I relate quite well to your 19 syllable poem. Interestingly I have not seen this contest/forum on the site. I will have to search for it as I enjoy these short, pocket poems. They are a challenge to say a lot in a few words. As an aside: I am thinking my tombstone will read: Still fat after all those diets. Write on!

Review of Yffi's Discovery  
Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
I enjoyed the story. My suggestion is that it needs more fleshing out and detail. We need to Know more about Yffi and his world, and the "sea-wolf".

I would like to offer just a small suggestion for this poem. Criticism is not my intent here. The idea and central theme is interesting. I would like to see you expand the idea to include more concrete details about specific blessings. I think it would also be interesting to see how a prayer that was answered with a "No" was actually a blessing. Happy writing!

Dark take on a word prompt. Stark. Real.

Review of Silenced  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Not familiar with the novel this poem was inspired by. It certainly, both the poem and the novel, seems highly relevant to our times today. My personal mantra is that we need to RISE! and ROAR! We cannot afford to be silent. Blessings on your writing journey.

I enjoyed your fable, and while it reminds me of a certain leader in power and his blond-haired daughter, I won't get into politics here.

Congratulations on your win. Love the poem. I was fortunate enough to see Kevin Locke perform many years ago at a POWWow here in Naples, Florida.

Hard to review such a short, short prompt. I see this is based on a true story--and how inexplicably sad this must have been. The brief introduction makes the reader want to know more details about this tragedy--who, what, where, and why. It is indeed a prompt and I can dee this opening up in to a much longer piece. Happy writing!
