Between You and Me by L.M.Mullins

Excellent

I like the way you began with, "Somewhere
between you and me" and ended with, "between you and me
Somewhere". The second stanza flows especially well. The aabb rhyme format has a bit of spice when broken in the last stanza with its fifth line. Also,the banker with the cardboard sign gives a clear visual to and idea.

The Sheep Trail, Knocknarea, Ireland by Nosha17

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

The scenery certainly has inspired an exquisite poem. It has good cadence in its 8 beats to a line and abab rhyme scheme. It rolls of the tongue and makes one daydream. Nice work.

Manners or Just the Southern Way? by Judith B.

Excellent

I enjoyed your essay. I have tried to figure this stuff out, so I am encouraged to hear it even confuses Southerners sometimes. I enjoy the politeness, but can see how confining the expectations can be at times. Such is the way of traditions in any society, I guess. We search to find a suitable halfway point. Thank you for sharing this one.

Excellent

I am especially fond of the first stanza, which could even stand on its own as a poem. As a good free verse, it has a structure of it's own, including an approximate rhyme scheme. Thank you for sharing.

You Are Love and Joy by Matoshka

Excellent

The presentation as "shape poetry" is certainly appropriate and enhances the poem itself. I especially like the lines, he sees "... each one of us in spirit form... there are no colors to distract Him.". Thank you for presenting the poem and the contest.

Comforters of Snow by Quire's Gal

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

This is a beautiful and well written 5-7-5 about winter. The end line puts a great spin to it. Great alliteration in snuggles, soft, snow, and spun. I don't think snuggles needs to be capitalized, though. Thank you for sharing, I think I will vote for this one.
