I like the sentiment expressed in "To Bloom Again." I've often had the same thought, but it never came to me in such a poetic way. The Kyrielle poem is new to me; I like the repeating line in each stanza. Strong rhymes and steady rhythm.

Such wonderful wisdom in these beautiful lines. I love reading poetry like this and thought your metaphor was used so well, from first line to last. This is truly satisfying and full of wisdom. I want to read it many more times.

I love the poem. I love the message. It is so true. To bloom again we all must die. Our life continues through the next generations. Great work.

Great job. I love the repetition here. It really hits home. A creative and well written poem. Your poem really makes one think which is what poetry, I think, is about. Well done.

solid use of abab rhyming
and excellent use of iambic meter to make for good cadence
good use of enjambment
I like the alliteration in saw a seed
and in dormant, dry
Your choice of refrain line is powerful in delivering a most thoughtful message

good luck in the contest

your use of the seed as metaphor works well to portray the image in your well penned words
one must die to self to be able to bloom again

your repeat lines work well for your poem

flows well

This is an amazing poem. It's thought provoking, and beautifully constructed. The rhyme scheme is consistent, as is the rhythm as far as the syllable count goes. So I know it was well thought out. I would have given it a six except that the ... threw off the rhythm for me.
Great job though!!!

    Thank you very kindly for your excellent review. I will recheck the rhythm and try to make sure it is consistent unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable. I know this will improve the quality of the poem even though there is no meter requirement in a Kyrielle.

Nicely worded poem with a good message. I especially liked the analogy of life/death light/shadow:
Sunshine and shadows romp and play
To bloom again, we all must die
Your notes were well organized and explained your poem's format simply.
Well done. Good luck on your contest entry.
