short story - S - by phill doran

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

Dear Phill,
Now that's what I call ALLITERATION!! I did not check so carefully as to see if there were any repetitions. Nor have I dared to look for spags. I will now retire into my safe schizophrenic strong hold.

Man's gods by royowen

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

Dear Roy,
You are an accomplished wordsmith, without doubt, but this work transcends any that I have previously read. Its technical structure is excellent, but what makes it great is the sincerity which pervades this poem. No "buts", no "begpardons", no excuses. Very well done or, in local vernacular, "Good-on-ya"

The Important Stuff by robyn corum

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

Dear Robin,
What a wonderful tribute to your beliefs. I agree that the doings of men pale into insignificance against the very fact that somehow we are here at all and that can only be ascribed to a power beyond ours.
Best regards

The Tide of Time by Dolly'sPoems

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

Dear Dolly,
A beautifully written, but rather melancholy look at the human ageing process. As one whose web worn wallet does not contain too much in the way of "bright life force", I can still assure all and sundry that neither my dear wife nor I fear the future and find that we still have enough of life's riches to enjoy it. We pray that others might be so lucky.
Best regards

Georgie won't be home tonight.. by royowen

Roy,
Now that is a beautiful, heartfelt poem in remembrance of your friend.
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death, I will fear no evil." My very favourite piece of comfort reading. Yes, even agnostics appreciate much of the Bible (I'm still on the King James version though) as a guide to social, civilised living.

Dear Gloria,
Wow! No wonder I have not (nor ever will) tackled a haiku. I guess you need a different (more poetic) mind than mine. Having said that, I love the sound of your words and heir wonderful imagery. Just lovely.

A Little 'Granny' Magic by robyn corum

Excellent

Dear Robyn,
You are so right. Good old home cookin' beats that foreign hi-falutin' stuff every time and if you follow by reading one of your homespun poems with dessert, "bodacious" is too mild an adjective. Yee-Har! (Did I get that right?)

Dear Yvette,
"Murmurations" - what a beautiful word in itself! I really admire the way you have structured your wording to provide great metre and thus enhance the reading pleasure of the poem's message itself. A stellar read.

Aging Advances - Life Pages Turn by rama devi

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

Dear rd,
Once more you hit the proverbial nail. "maturity rocks" is a great description of ageing the right way. As someone who might be described as "over ripe" rather than "mature" I can still feel the urge to be up and doing (though at times I may forget what I am/was/will be doing). A wonderful metaphor.
Regards
Reg
