Review of Feelings  
Review by jaya
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
A simple story of instant love that may last longer than we think it would.

Wesley seems to be fascinated by Lulu from the word go.

You certainly surprised me by showing that she had similar feelings for him. Talk of fate!
Obviously, they are destined to be lovers.

His quip on partners is informative.
"It is not who you arrive with, that matters. But who takes you home.”

Dialog is engaging and so are ways of love they followed.

The dance floor seems to serve several purposes.

Have a wonderful WDC Account Anniversary!
Congratulations!

Review of I am Weird  
Review by jaya

Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Hi!

I thoroughly enjoyed this description of what makes it weird.

I am Jaya and I am reviewing this crisp poem for your WDC Account Anniversary.
Congratulations!*Cake*
Have a great day!

As I have started liking vegetarian food more than nonvegetarian, I find myself becoming partial to the vegetarians.
There's is an argument that meat and other associated dishes provide protein. I found out that there are a number of things other than meat that contain protein. Eating meat is no big deal.

"Body dead
Body sold"

Your word play is appropriate and thoughtful.

Your poem draws attention to more serious issues like hurting and killing animals and eating dead animals. That makes people almost cannibals.

I am glad I have stopped eating meat. Vegetarians, though weird to some, are actually peace loving folks.
"Healthy vegetables
Vegetables fresh
Fresh fruit
Fresh and sweet"

Wonderful!

Review of Quiet House  
Review by jaya

Rated: E | (5.0)
The difficult task of grappling with a painful reality is depicted perceptively. Death waits in the wings, while the lady slowly fades.

"A clawing pain hangs in the air."
This image and figure of speech bring us to the scenario with an immediacy.
Effective!

Silence seems to rule the house in expectation of the stealthy entrance of death, the final act of life's drama.

You have brought us to the kind of atmosphere that dwells in the house, where people walk quietly and talk softly for obvious reasons.

The departing soul needs this silence.

This is a house with people who understand death and behave accordingly.

Awesome!

Have a great WDC Account Anniversary!

Review of Cold  
Review by jaya
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Parting with love especially in winter is graphically shown.
Imagery is of pivotal importance in this free style poem. Cold and warmth are juxtaposed to show what makes the other effective.

If he leaves it is unbearably cold making you go under,
"blankets, coats, scarves;"

All's vain until he returns.
"when he returns,
I am all the warmer"

You had let me have a feel of the cold and that of the warmth through this well composed poem.
The proximity with the loved one makes all the difference.

Hi,

I find once again that this poem reflects reality. The companions are complementary in their choices and behaviour patterns as the situations in life demand. Yet, the focus is on love. Come what may, love is always the priority.

"No matter the ‘I love you’s’ that have been lies, I am not far behind
Look inside, I DO love you."

This is what happens after the couple travels a certain length of marital journey. After the initial spell of euphoria, time to look deeper, find the reasons for disharmony if there is any and set the record straight arrives.

You read the small print of marriage perfectly well.

Thanks for sharing. The couplets flow well with images of life in place.

Hi,
you painted a moving picture of this Afghan girl crouching and desolate.

No wonder her eyes are the only living features on her otherwise dead self. No movement except the desperation in her eyes

The war torn city, deserted streets, hiding folks, soldiers and renegades occupying the whole place are the scenes that come to my mind.

Innocents like the fourteen-year-old get caught in the cross fire. I blame those responsible for the whole fiasco.

A very telling symbol of war is graphically shown.

Review of The Fence  
Review by jaya
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
Sitting on the fence is a great metaphor for living without contradictions. You will have no enemies. All peace and harmony. However, it’s difficult to convince all, all the time about not taking sides.
You say details are bothersome. Yet, details give us the end-all and the be-all of a situation. That gives us a glimpse of what lies in the edge.
You are right about being pushed. Few resist the pressure. It’s not easy to stay on the fence. It takes a person of strong will to stand unfazed under duress. But it’s still possible.

It’s a thought-provoking view.
At the end of the day, you are still on the fence. I am glad you are.

This piece reflects human psychology too.

Review of My best season

Hi Mina,
this sounds like a spring poem. It is filled with pretty flowers and beautiful butterflies.
My review is for your WDC Account Anniversary.
Congratulations! *Cake2*

Have a wonderful day!

This rhyming verse appeals to me because of the visual imagery you have used and descriptive details of the season.

“Marigold, Dahlia, Roses bloom,
There’s neither sorrow nor gloom.”

With flora and fauna active around, there’s no room for sorrow.
You have painted a colourful poem and it sounds like a tribute to nature, the soothing mother.

It flows well.

Review of World of Paint  
Review by jaya

Rated: E | (4.5)
Hi,

Painting to me is a great visual art, be it water colours, oils or any other ingredient.

Simple wall paints speak so much about the person that chooses them.

You’ve shown a whole array of symbols through painting.
“Hope shining through the streaks,”

Images of painting come to my mind as I read this simple free style poem. Each colour and its many different shades are unique.

The last two lines are ring in the truth that we live in a colourful world for which we owe thanks to the Superior Artist.

It flows well.

Hi Elizabeth!

It’s my pleasure reading and reviewing this poem on seasonal change.
This review is for your WDC Account Anniversary.
Congratulations on entering a new year of writing at the WDC.*Cake2*
Have a lovely day!

You have brought out the winter charm giving way to spring and summer. As I visualise through your imagery, I find that every season has its own charm, use and freshness.
If winter speaks of rest, spring stands for rebirth.
Nature renews itself with fresh blades of grass, leaves and blossoms.

“Everything becomes new”

Hi,
I picked this heartening poem from your port.

My review is for your WDC Account Anniversary.
Congratulations ushering in another year at the WDC.*Cake*
Have a great day!

The little girl’s cry for her dad reaches out to the reader. The necessity for parents to attend to their children is shown through the child’s plea to her absent father. It certainly is a heart-melting appeal that comes through clear and loud through vivid images and befitting word choices.

“Daddy, Daddy where are you?

“Can’t you see the reasons?”

Well written. It flows well.

Review of What is a Family?  
Review by jaya
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hi Michelle!

Children of the same family may be of different characteristics. As you have pointed out there exist different levels of closeness among them.

Despite all that, they gather together when times demand, be it celebratory or any family functions.
It is during such occasions they recall childhood days and understand how connected they are now.

The affinity and care between them is special. They stand by one another. That is their strength.
Good families bring in strong societies, which in turn make the nation strong.

I enjoyed this prose poem of yours and glad to note the bond between brother and sister, the way it should be.

Thank you for sharing.

Review of Life's Gifts

Hi Kathie!

Life’s pages unfurl enchantingly. Enjoyed a whirlwind tour of every stage of a beautiful life. College years pass by experiencing excitement and novelty of a phase, tasting the age wisdom.

Kids and marriage, the years that melted like snowflakes, loss and sadness, unavoidable as to every mortal are shown in a heartening manner.

Life takes on a new shade, once again you find yourself free and independent.
I call this a complete life, the circle comes round.

You can certainly claim that “wondrous trait,” for you have earned it as I can see. You deserve more stars than you think.

Lovely poem with a spontaneous flow with visual images of life clear to my
mind.

Thank you for sharing.

Glorious and Joyful

Hello Fernella!
I find this fable quite thought-provoking. The importance of imagination is clearly explained in this story.

“Yes, now I understand. All I have to do is close my eyes and open my mind…..”

You also tried to show how to develop the craft of imagination. There’s no lack of adventure for those who mastered the art of flying into the fields of imagination.

Well narrated.

Hello Angeline,

I am reviewing the second of the three poems written here.
Impressive thoughts about love, death and after life.

True, that once dead we are but shadows lingering or on the fringe of being forgotten.
“…a passing memory.”

Edit-
“Eternity is to long….”
(Eternity is too long…)

“But in the end we just….”
(But in the end we are just…”

“...to make amark”
(…to make a mark)

All the poems are lyrical to my ear. Content and imagery appeal to me.
Written in free style, they flow well.

Hi Justin,

This is an interesting account of the roof-making done by your brother.
I am impressed and appreciate your brother’s painstaking effort.
This is not a single man’s work. Yet, he tried.

If I were to do this, I would postpone the whole plan till the weather is dry and clear.
Please don’t get me wrong. It’s just my observation.

It’s difficult to lay concrete or attempt any masonry work during rainy weather. Best is to do construction work in summer.

I completely agree with your observations at the end of this nonfiction story.

Well narrated. It would help the reader if you bring in spaces between the paragraphs.

Hi,
I like your end decision.
Getting rid of anger is not so easy. But as you would, it is worth giving it a try.
Your short poem speaks a lot about anger and the result thereof. People shudder to approach an angry person.
we commit irrevocable mistakes when the mind is beside itself with anger. Faces turn red and expression, grotesque. OMG!

" can not let it affect me.
I have to do what is best."

Kingdoms are lost and people died because of uncontrollable anger.

Your poem inspired me to stay calm and never get angry.

It flows well.

Hi Cathy,

I have enjoyed reading your poem on love.
It’s place among virtues is special and singular. This is an emotion which is widely shared by the human world.

Love has the power to eradicate vices of any kind.All the great spiritual masters served humanity with love.

A person can become lonely and desperate without love. So it is with the poor and the destitute.

In a few simple images you have made me feel the vital significance of love.

It flows well.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful WDC Account Anniversary.*Cake*

Hi Tucknits,
Thank you for this favorite poem, which is easily my favorite too.
I love the informal and philosophic tone and the leisurely pace of this observation poem.

I live by the side of the road too and undergo similar feelings when I see people racing or randomly walking to their places of destination.

Sam Walter Foss has a lot to offer not only with regard to things that we as human beings should strive to cultivate but also the impressive way his muse moves.

The tone is that of an observer of outside world and of his own self.
It's both subjective and objective.

Completely absorbing with its flow and imagery.

"That the road passes on through the long afternoon
And stretches away into night."

Lines such as above are sheer delight.

The poet's love for people is something I would like to adopt.
Thank you for a remarkable poem.

Innocence pertains to mind rather than to the body that perishes in the long run.
Yes, it’s also true that losing innocence in the way you mean is deeply hurting to the mind.
“Almost screaming for the innocence lost.”
The best remedy is to get lost in creativity that lets us conjure dreams of our liking.

Loved the word pictures you created and your ability to say plenty in a few words of depth and sincerity.

It flows well.

Congratulations! *Cake*
Have a lovely day!

Biking in the morning before the world is astir is a great idea. I walk towards the green hills fragrant woods and cool breezes early in the morning on every breaking dawn.

You have put quite aptly, when you say,
“…to Mother Nature’s soliloquy.”

She speaks to those willing to listen.

Imagery is visual and word choices are appropriate.

Hello Kathie,

I am impressed at the way this arranged marriage turned out. I come from a culture in which arranged marriages are still common. My marriage was of similar pattern and each day is as beautiful as the previous one.
You had shown with delightful dialogue and fine sentiments, the reasons why some marriages are successful.
All that matters is a lot of love and adequate understanding.

Economy of words in this story makes the difference. Saying plenty in a few words is truly a virtue in writing. Hope some of it will rub off with my creative endeavours.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jay,

this poem reminds me of my own experiences.

Pleasant Past fills one with remorse. Yet, no amount of regret can bring back those pleasure-winged days.

“….past draws from my eyes great tears.”

Just recalling the joy of the days gone inspires me to enjoy my present as well.

Like you said,
“Your lasting beauty lives such joy with me.”

Quite apt and appreciable.

Elizabeth, I conclude is the famous Elizabeth Barrett Browning, especially with reference to sonnet 43.

I read the sonnet once again, thanks to you.

With telling imagery, your poem flows well.

Review of The Vampire Blues

Change seems to have crept into the vampire world as well. A law of life it is, no matter where one lives.

Finding an ghostly town is just the thing that suited him. Conveniently tucked away in a nowhere town.

Imagination is used to bring forth the fact that vampires wear a dead look in photos.But their blood thirst remains the same whatever be the age.

I wonder how did the vampires get those handsome looks that snare women by the dozen.

Interesting story with a vampire contemplating on "modern madness."
Fine language and style are a plus point.
