Murmurations of the Heart by Y. M. Roger

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

Really like this poem and the message contained therein. Sometimes it is indeed the softness of a whisper that provides the most solace. Could easily see this win the contest.

What a Night!!! by Shirley McLain

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

_Being screamed at like that would be enough to wake anyone up, frightfully. At least they took the time to call you. Someone else may not have.

-Tornados are one of the most devastating events in nature. Have seen them completely exploded a house and leave nothing in their wake.

-"One never knows" is present tense, maybe to keep the whole piece part tense: )ne never knew

_Interesting choice, either face the tornado or the scorpions. Either way, you are caught up in a nightmare.

-High tension is maintained in the action throughout the piece.

-Hand-counted 100 words, so meets that requirement of the contest.

Smokey and Heather's Game Plan by judiverse

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

--Isn't that just like kids to try to play one parent against the other?

"We do, of course" is passive voice. Perhaps Of course we do, (would make it active voice)

-So, their plan did not quite result in the way they wanted it to.

-Captures the essence of this scene well.

Dimensions, a Nightmare by Marjon van Bruggen

Excellent

The mind can certainly be creative when someone tries to sleep and no matter what good he thinks he sees, it turns into something bad. Can make you wonder where such notions come from.

Story would read more clearly if it was formatted into paragraphs instead of one continuous paragraph. Maybe make each scene he observes its own paragraph.

My Being Knows You by Y. M. Roger

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

Poem captures the essence that it is not words that necessarily attract two people together but actions, which as the adage says, speak much louder.

It is also through actions people demonstrate how much they care about someone else.

Especially for Valentine's Day that is the sort of feeling people enjoy the most.
