A Christ-centered Life by Mustang Patty

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

Patty, your write-up reminds me of what Jesus said: "Let he who has no sin cast the first stone." I have lived long enough and experienced long enough to know that we can be Christians without having to be judgemental and devoid of understanding.

Having said that, do know that there is no perfect church just as there is no perfect Christian. Going to a church you are comfortable with does provide the support and fellowship which can be lacking in our spiritual life, not to mention the growth in our walk with Jesus.

A Defining Moment by Mustang Patty
Chapter 1 of the book Grammy's Memoirs 2018

This work has reached the exceptional level

Dear Patty, it's very brave of you to reveal this dark period in your life. Thank you for sharing. By sharing, you are also helping yourself because of the cathartic effect it has on the writer.
You write well. "It was a murder of innocence." These are powerful words because it resonates with the horrific effect the abuser did to his victims which are your sister and indirectly you. I know that even the wounds heal, the scars will remain. Yes, write about it, but don't dwell on it. It's over. Keep looking forward and onward. This is also what I tell myself because I have been through traumatic moments in my life too.

haiku (old cracked teapot) by Douglas Paul

Another interesting haiku. The teapot is now old and cracked just like a person who has aged with the years and health problems have set in. This is inevitable, but it's not the years that count but the precious memories the years have held. Well done, Douglas.

Thanks for sharing Patty, and the candid revelation about your son's addiction. I know the pain of a mother when her son turns out different. My son is schizophrenic. The illness manifested when he was 20. It's been 23 years now.

Take care. I like your positive attitude.

I Live My Life in Black by artemis53

Yes, you have a right to mourn, and no one should be telling you to get on with life and get over it, for they can't feel how you feel and they are not you. It was Tennyson who once said it is better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all.

Beautiful, lyrical poem, replete with lilting cadence. Write on.

Good gracious, Patty, you own twelve houses! In Singapore, houses (we call it landed property) are so expensive and land is so precious. I live in an apartment, more like a matchbox. LOL.

Question 2 shows you are so giving. As for question 3, hm, that's teasing.

Phyllis, just adding to the fun, so 2cents is ok.LOL.
Was that you during your salad days? Charming!

You don't ski and you barely swim, so you are a better lover. LOL.

I don't wear socks unless it's to the gym. Singapore is hot, humid and sunny.

Take care. I hope you are better

Hey, Joe by sanejane

Excellent

Yes, this poem has no need of rhyme. Written in free verse, it's haunting, blood churning and horrendous. The predator is not human but a beast and there are many around.

I'm glad your daughter has you to turn to. Keep strong for yourself and for her.

The image fits the poem well.

Where Did I Come From? by Jmf4119

A delightful poem about a child's curiosity and the parents' attempts to hoodwink her. LOL.
The picture frames the poem well.
Just a concern; if the persona is a child I wouldn't expect her to use such big words such as "shenanigans" and "shillelaghs".

Absence by artemis53

Excellent

This is a beautiful poem. I love the mellifluous cadence which exudes a stream of consciousness amidst the pain the poet is going through. The content befits the title "Absence" and the image frames the poem well.
