I am simply in awe of this poem. It is of a depth seldom reached and, at the same time, heartwrenchingly uplifting. Beyond exploring the humanity embedded in the depicted tragic events, the writer displays an incredibly impressive "way with words." WELL DONE!!

You blow me away every single time I read one of your free verse poems, Mitchell. Your command of metaphor, simile, poetic LANGUAGE is simply magical.

At this late date my six won't do a thing to promote this most-worthy poem, but still I can't bring myself to rate less. MY cheeks are rising like warm bread... in a smile for poetry so beautiful and poignant.

Perhaps BOO knows a little about this topic, ghosts.

Let's read...

You got the pumpkin orange backdrop, perfect for Halloween.

Let's read... I like this: brighter than a sunflower after a summer rain.

You got some well-orchestrated words here.

They have deep roots. From the shallow hallow ground.

This has exceptional deep meaning.

In her old age, perhaps she was a prostitute, beaten by knuckles and ganging on to life, as syringes poked in her trigger a childhood memory of sheer happiness.

Her soul escapes her body. She becomes a ghost, like the ones she felt press against her face and softly whisper the birthday chants.

Time to walk with the ghosts.

Well, what I perceived.

Exceptional poem!

BOO!

I've never liked free verse, or blank, I'm a rhyming poet. But, MY GOODNESS!!! This was amazing! It's stirring, powerful, emotional, and so sad, it put a lump in my throat. There is so much in this poem, that you should do more to put it out in the bigger world. I was wishing I could pick that young woman up and take her back to those happy days she could still remember. Mitchell, this is a winner in anyone's book. Good luck!! :)) Sandra xxx

This story in a poem is heartbreaking. 'Her cheeks rising like warm bread', I love that.
I am sure this poem will do well in the free verse competition. Good luck. Jen.

Ah, this is so emotive, and emotional. I love your imagery, particularly the facial imagery of ghosts and petals, where the ghosts create happy memories, and the petals unpleasant ones. Powerful, well-written prose - a privilege to share, thank you.

This was amazing. I went from sad and disgusted to happy about the girl's birthday. I'm not really the free verse type, but you really changed my mind. Once again, an excellent poem!

Mitchell,

I am SO glad that I have fanned you. I never want to miss one of your masterpieces. In my opinion, you are the best free verse poet on this site, and one of my favorite poets on this site.

Your quality of work is ALWAYS exceptional - pacing of the poem, word usage/word choice, word weaving, message, storytelling, metaphor usage, the ability to engage/moved the reader, and compassion. Need I say more?

This poem pulled my heartstrings as I think about the sexual abuse that the young child encountered, which possibly led to her drug abuse.

Outstanding work, my friend! If this poem does not place in the contest, I have to wonder about the Committee's taste and expertise.

Working up from a drug-induced little girl to a dancing child on her eighth birthday. Yes, it did start out with disgust for this poor child, ended in a delight for her birthday. Was her birthday in heaven? Good luck in the contest my friend XXk.
