I just revived my account... I have been writing in the past and found myself the motivation to write again. Your poem triggered my passion to do so.

No wonder that this poem has been chosen as "the winner". It exuded the reality of life, the imperfection and other aspects that we may not be to one's liking. However, there is always the other side of things and that is to always believe that in every situation... Hope is key to be able to evolve and survive.

I am tasked now with writing sufficient words in this space to meet the minimum word count requirement before the tyrant master will allow my words to be seen by you.

My words of praise cannot match the beauty you have captured in your exquisite verse. A true literary gem.

Stay safe

John

Hello RG,

How nice to read one of your poems again!

If there was ever a time for the world to heal, and its people to come together, it is now. Your poem, in its eloquence, with its soft and gentle delivery, gives Man hope for the future.

I love it all, but a few stand-out lines for this reader are:
* Below her, man meandering like lost boats without oars
* She flips and dips a moment in wonder of the task
* She wonders of the future, how bright the chestnut trees
Where the sunset drags its fingers low on new Earth it believes

This is another masterful write, and was a pleasure to read. The Heron as a symbol of hope is perfect. Your accompanying art work complements the vibe of your write ... soft and graceful! I enjoyed the mono-rhyming where presented, as well as your skillful use of assonance.

Great write, RG!

Cheers,
Connie

Oh, Roy, Here I sit here with tears in my eyes as I've just read and re-read your beautiful poem about hope and recognising the past. It's poignant, the imagery is outstanding not to mention its rhythm. Your talent is like no others on this site.
I've missed your poems and here you are again. Please do stay for a while.
I wish I had ten stars, but five will have to suffice. Welcome back. Ulla:)))

I think before I read your notes I got the gist of the poem, you were talking about today's climate. I think there's change coming, but today people have low attention spans and I think the presidential election will push whatever gains have been made to the back of everybody's mind. Very nice job.
