My first review since rejoining FanStory.
I glanced at a few poems that were ..... somewhat uninspiring.
Then this. A real delight. Lovely rhythmic and creative alliteration.
Smiled all the way through. Refuse to offer any suggestions because.......I can't think of any!!!! Very nice work, indeed ... thank you x

Just popped my head in to see what is what. Miss you big man.....
Really enjoyed this poetic song....... great use of slang and imagery......can feel the music too. Love Beggars Banquet, by the way.
Good to connect again......so much stuff in my life just now (sadly not all good) that reading and writing have been low on my list of things to do. That must change!!
Nice work, my friend........sending love....H x

Hi Lucretia. Wonderful sonnet. Technically perfect and with delightful imagery. Not sure what else to say....just perfect.
I hope it does well in the competition for you.
Been offsite for a long time and it is good to be back (just a few days now) especially when reading poetry like this. With love...H x

Goodness. Love this too.
Powerful structure, imagery and rhyme.
Great lingering last line too.....bet she was.
Wondered whether you meant antidote (rather than anecdote)?

Friends indeed! With love...H x

Yeah baby!

Missed you lovely lady.
Delighted to be back when I can read this imaginative poem.
Loved it....fine rhyming form, exciting, naughty yet with a sting. Not sure I quite get "you 'have no doubt' finer than a foul fella" but I'm sure there ia a one who does!!
Good work. Hope life is treating you OK? Till soon...with love...H x

Like a Bubble on a Breeze by GarthL

Hi Garth....songwriter, musician and poet to be....
I enjoyed this. It isn't perfect and could be better still. I've given it 5 stars because I suspect you will (should) revisit it (you can, anytime). For example 'lithe'...a forced rhyme where the meaning of the word is at odds with your intentions. I'll look at this poem in more detail when I have a bit more time and your other work. Great connecting....look forward to getting to know you. Till soon...with love...H x

Been away from FanStory for most of this year and am catching up. Fascinating lady that you are, thought I'd check out this prizewinner. Captures the essence of physical aging for an immense person in your life. Lost my father nearly 2 years ago and his physical (he had dementia, so sadly his mental too) decline was hard to articulate. Wonderful work...thank you. With love...H x

Conflicted by Kelleigh

...and alive you are!

Well constructed and paced with growing involving intrigue.
Of course the revelation is as climatic (or anti-) as the readers personal perspective. No doubts as to how impactful the journey has been for you though.
Excellent piece. On a personal note I hope it springboards less inner turmoil for you.
Being true to oneself and honest is good.
Everyone is bisexual....it is only the degree/proportionality/circumstances that creates life/action choices (my thoughts!!)
I really liked your writing in this short piece. Well done. Love H x

The Breakdown of the Moon by Changeisgood

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

Fine poem Franny......
The mysterious moon.....for millenia a source of wonder, worship, romance. Reduced to dust and rocks by probing man.

Yet I would argue.....it still holds wonder and energic power for you, it still makes your breath catch and heart spin in a moonlit night. As for me, as for much of humanity.

Does knowledge diminish? Most scientist have a sense of powerful awe the more they discover, not less. The experience of those who stood on the surface of the moon has diminished none of the awe. Awestruck then and now.

Are there many who close their eyes to the magnificence of all around us...for sure. Eyes are there, though, waiting to be opened.
Lovely work, lovely lady.....H x
