Sun Worshippers by Nanny 6

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

Lovely poem with a lovely subject. The structure is spot on with syllabic pattern and verse length appropriate for the contest. But I also feel the structure compliments the subject too - with the repeating pattern of the sunflowers as each day dawns. A sweet, sunny poem about a gorgeous flower. Good luck in the contest.

Bernstein's Magic by Joan E.

Excellent

A lovely poem about a great man. I'm a huge Bernstein fan and so finding this little gem was exciting for me. The poem flows well and I was really interested to learn about his superstitions. The final 2 lines are very powerful, heightening the sense of magic that the titles references, and also hinting at the man inside the maestro. Brilliant piece - well done.

Rejoice! Rejoice! ... by royowen

Wow Roy, this is excellent. I'm sorry I don't have any 6 stars left because this moved me. I don't have faith but your words clarified the meaning of faith to you and made it understandable for me. The compassion this piece shows is so very clear and the rhyme and rhythm throughout help this poem to flow. There is a lightness to the poem, which I feel brings out the rejoicing that you reference. A really lovely read - thank you ?¼•?

What a lovely and romantic haiku. Structure spot on and the picture you paint is evocative. I've always loved lilac scents so was totally immersed in the poem. The image you use totally compliments your words. Nostalgic and timeless. Well done

Live It! by Jannypan (Jan)

Excellent

LOVE THIS! Really excellent little 6 word poem. Love how it starts with just the one word which gives nothing away - this could go in any direction. But your use of punctuation on the second line draws the reader in and the clever addition of no prior to instructions raises a smile. The final line is powerful and emotive - I think all readers will empathise with this. Well done and best of luck in the competition.

Aw Jenny, this did make me smile. What a sweet little poem for kiddies. Love your use of word families, especially in the last couplet. Can totally imagine you reading this out in class and the children loving it. Well done.

Really liked this haiku. Has a really lovely mystical feel to it, emphasised by the photo you use. Excellent structure and the use of her personifies the night, making Mother Nature come to mind. Really well done - smashing.

Missouri's Tragic Headlines by Cindy McIntyre

Excellent

Heartbreaking, made all the more so due to the events you describe. It flows well, encouraging the reader onwards, even though I knew that I really didn't want to get to the end and have that tragic story confirmed. A strong piece that totally hits the contest brief.

A nicely structured poem, fulfilling the criteria for the writing prompt. The theme is simple but this makes it all the more powerful. It's clear that it's the little things in life that mean the most. A really lovely poem. Well done.

The Grudge by Ogden

Excellent

This is a great entry in the competition. Well written with humour and some pathos - I ignored your advice and did become attached to Luesir. But the way the story unfolds is really entertaining and I found I couldn't wait the see Lustir get his comeuppance. Loved that when he did it was not overt - the line where you reference asking nanny made me laugh out loud. Finally the moral also is funny and fits really well with the story and plot. The glossary you include is a nice idea too. Enjoyable and humourous. ?°???
