Oh, no! Could it be? Our very first President told a lie? You really captured the spirit of our political times with some appropriate insight to our founding father. The text flows and is very logical and touches a nerve of the political scene today. This is a six star entry for an insightful comment on the aspect of politics to day. Thank you for sharing and for the 52-cents!

Autumn's Last Show by judiverse

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

When you've got, you GOT IT! Such a magical weaving of words and so appropriate for the season. I like the concept of the leaves being actors rushing to their last show. Your choice of vocabulary "razzle-dazzle" "crimson souls" "ingenue" (I like the accent over the "e"). The whole theme is so cleverly tied together. Good luck in the contest. Hope you get more six stars! So happy to earn 32-cents!

Looking At Leaves by LIJ Red

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

your vocabulary and magical weaving of the words is just outstanding! How can I help but give you six stars. I love the frost being referred to as an "iron boot." And, then, to top it all, the leaves cry like "minstrels." Oh, and please don't grow cold in your old age. We have to remember that the frost means the demise of hurtful pests - so frost is good. I guess if the troglodytes made it, we can too! Six stars for vocabulary, creating a clear picture, and keeping me uplifted and hopeful. Thanks for the 32 cents.

Witchy Woman by bichonfrisegirl

You really had me worried about that cat. . . was it a black cat? The picture is great and adds to the lyrics. I'm not sure of the meaning of "chawdron" Is it a made-up word? I like the light treatment of the scary and horrible nature that witches are generally portrayed in. Truly enjoyable. Thanks for sharing. The reference to the cat in the blanket really adds to enjoyment of this poem.

Silent Colours by Hayley Zemontas

This poem stirred me to realize that sounds can be counterproductive. They can be scary because they sound like gun shots. That alone is enough to cause terror. I never thought of the beauty and noise of fireworks. This is very cleverly done. Your vocabulary is well chosen and adds pathos to this entry. Thank you for sharing. I admire your wish for beauty and sweet silence.

On the Limits of Free Speech by Lance Polin

Excellent

I want to compliment you on your determination to foster free speech. People are the given the freedom to say good or bad things, do good or bad things, and think good or bad things. So, we have a choice because freedom of speech is an innate God given privilege. We can abuse free speech by spewing words of hate or curse words. But, let us ask ourselves, which words are more effective? Hateful, demeaning and gutter language has an affect on both the person saying these words and the person hearing the diatribes. Sure, you can say whatever you want, but do you not have some kind of morality driving your actions toward other people? Free speech reigns; it will never go away. We have a choice in how we use our words. Speech cannot be legislated - it is up to us to use this gift in a positive way that will produce a harmonious society that can work together with different ideas, faith beliefs, political parties, age groups, and other social group that can be formed.
Thank you for sharing. We do need to be aware of the ideas and thinking of other groups that we don't associate with.
In this sentence, "Some of the teachers I worked with had a very strick idea of education." strick is misspelled - it should be strict
Not getting this - having difficulty understanding what the statement in parentheses is saying "that they had no self-control (any longer we live in a world of children, don't we?)"

Great insights into what the animals (or people) might really be thinking. I love how you capitalized on the ugly parts of the animal, and even the lion, though great in power, wants to "end it all." We do not know what burdens each other carries. Hey, how about just being nice to each other and accepting one another as he or she is. Thank you for sharing. Good luck in the contest.

Why Do People Hate by Carolyn Reaves

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

Very aptly expressed. Sometimes we forget about LOVE and FORGIVENESS. You have pointed our the absolute essence of our human spirit. We have the capacity for love and forgiveness, but we can also turn to hate. Ask yourself a question: Do you want to be consumed by hate? or do you want to be consumed with love? This is sort of like the barrel of vinegar and the barrel of honey - which is more attractive? Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You are the hope of America (if you are an American).

Incense, or Incensed? by LaRosa

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

Very poignantly expressed. I, too, have the same feelings but have great faith in the resilience of the human spirit. I have noticed that around me - at the Y, at the grocery store, at the outdoor market, in the Bible study, in the classroom there are many people struggling to continue a life of peace, acceptance, and dignity. You have an excellent command of the mechanics of English Grammar. Your thought process flows logically and you provide some hope for a society that is looking pretty bleak. Your story greatly enhanced the point you were trying to make. We cannot ignore what is going on around us, but we can create for ourselves a community where acceptance and dignity are respected. Hey, what we need is a Good News channel!

Bells and Whistles by judiverse

Excellent

I am sorry, but I am from the "old school" of librarians going "shh" so people could concentrate on their reading. Having a Master's Degree in Library Science, I am that little old librarian going "shh!" I need and want the quiet so I can let my mind digest what I am reading and paint pictures in my head. Sorry, but noises and pop-up emojis are distracting to me and my concentration. FanStory needs a category for "enhanced" poems and stories. Just put them all in one place and don't disturb my flights of fancy.
