Not so ordinary Gold by JLR
Chapter 7 of the book Muses of the Heart

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

I think this unrhymed poem is philosophical in several ways. Sweets from honeybees excels over the gold od precious, it's better than a "king's ransome; and glittering does not evaluate a rare metal's worth.
Pure gold positively does symbolize value and status. Still, greed for wealth, prestige and class frequently corrupts and comes short of glory.

Into The Vortex by LisaMay

Good
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted

In a way, VORTX sends a message of senseless journey. In my mind, it pictures stalemate, a spinning of the wheels.

However, even in in this quagmire it is repetitive and borin.

Excellent

Colorful language in narration, dialofue and action.
I think this chapter gives me some picture of France and citizens, in a miniature way.

You end it well in suspense.

Peace Unto You by Barb Hensongispsaca
Chapter 92 of the book Part 5 2019

Excellent

I like your "Quiet Snowfall" very much. In basing Peace on a Divine source, you have a solid foundation.

I lke your words, "...to walk among us...taking our form", and demonstrating the true source of eternal love.

Yes, in pursuit of truth and love, I've also longed to spread that by published writing.

It;s disheartening that partying, praising the cheap and exciting pushes out the best. But, to quote a figure of speech from long ago. it's confirmed by this: "Truth crushed to earth will rise again."

Job Offer by HarryT

I think the author notes give some history.

Herte's my input on that:

I was a sales person for Fields publisher. I did well in mostly rural areas, seldom in urban places, unless we include very small towns.

But I was looking for work in Cincinnati when the big C E O was promoting big sales. That wasc1950. I had no vehicle, so I never got a job.

Moonlight by Eugenia fain

Seems like this tidy and neat bit measured up to the croterian of a two-line poem, rhyming handily.

It seems to me many reviewers get by with a lot fewer charcters than I did Typically do.

Yeah, I could have spread on in small talk.

Hunpt, it's been a long time since I've read your intriguing posts. I really like your dialogue, pacing, dilect and cacterization.


I see you got recognized on this post. I guess it could be called satire. That helps.

Hurrah, Commando! - Chapter 15 by Tootie

As historical narrative, this chapter 15 gives a down-to-earth pastime.. Born in eastern Kentucky, and having shipped overseas to the Panama Canal Zone for two years, I can identify a little bit with Bill's more sacrificial Vietnam tour.

Senses by mrsmajor

Excellent

Rejoice in this poet's free verse, so eloquently stated in SENSES.

Indeed, whether to expressions of natural beauty, or of praise to God
Nature, by the author, credits a Supreme Being for inspiring Nature.

Therefore I Am by moonsunrise

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level


Exquisite! This measures up by any guage or crierion I know.

Lines that sum up:

"My whisper is the violin caressing my soul.
...
...I surrender my soul for this is my moment
I;m alive, therefore I am."

Wow.
