Beautifully done - from a Winnipeg Jets fan, and proud daughter of a former SJHL player. I've posted my own tribute piece in memory of the Broncos as well.

They say that good friendships are as rare as diamonds, and even more precious than the most brilliant of faceted stone... (actually, I said that... just now in fact!)

I hope you know that I keep you close in thought and prayer Mark. Shine on, my friend, shine on!

I pray by Mustang Patty

You've definitely touched on something many are feeling these days, Patty. I don't know if the world is genuinely more dangerous now, or not... but it certainly feels like it when everyday places including places of worship can be targeted...

It's my understanding that the birth of Jesus was humble by design. I offer a suggestion for consideration to clarify your meaning:

Humble beginning
Or design?

Humble start by chance
Or design?

Warmest regards!

I miss you by Mustang Patty

Excellent

While heartfelt, I must admit that this is not one of my favourites of yours, Patty. It's the rhyming that just doesn't click for me... the rhymes, while quite apparent throughout (as end rhymes tend to be), don't follow any pattern. For me, I'd as soon there had been internal rhyming scattered throughout (or no intentional rhyming at all), giving more of a free-flow feeling to the piece.

But - that's just my two cents worth!

Warmest regards,
Christina

Solitude by Paul Bownas

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

This is a rare poem, one that seeks to present the opportunity to peer into our own sense of fear, and find something beautiful there. Beauty is not equated to a gentle, kind quality, nor are these examples lovely solely in terms of what the senses perceive... but there is a deeper quality of awesomeness, God-fearing spiritual presence (if not God, then perhaps a sense of a higher power, something greater than oneself?) that is described.

I enjoyed the detailed descriptors of each scene (e.g. "black against the blue"; "Bracken and the purple heather") and the line, "Then drag my soul into the slate-grey sea." conveys such personal surrender to that which is greater than... Love this line.

Also, the repeated phase that includes "beautiful" as the close to each stanza works well - ends each verse on an almost prayer note.

Lovely! I truly enjoyed this work!

Hi Paul,
There's still no poem or image showing here - just a black rectangle. I do hope it can be fixed... maybe contact Tom (site administrator) for assistance?

Let me know when it's ready and I'll take another look.

Wow - dark thoughts here! And, Dude really appears to need a serious manicure on those fingerblades he's got going on there... (I'd hate to see the aftermath if he had to sneeze and wipe his nose...)

Good luck with the contest!

An enchanting work that takes me back to carefree summer afternoons spent as a child, cloud watching and blowing bubbles that floated like tiny balloons filled with magical rainbows.

Wonderful!

Hugs to you,
