Horror-vacui

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

While I never heard the term, HORROR VACUI, I can grasp the translation from Latin and can say, "I get it!" And it's horrible! Not like the works of advertisers who understand how it's white space that really catches the eye. Nicely written and illustrated

Morning Blues

For someone like me who is not a morning person - well, at least until I've had my two cups of coffee- this says it all! How my husband and I are loving our retirement... no clock to contend with, but alas, time continues to fly!

What a beautiful sonnet, Gloria, and what a nice comparison of memories to piles of linen sheets and age easing the edge of fears like an iron smooths fresh linens to be stacked on the shelf, like the process of life being smoothed into death.
Very nice.

Sweet Daisies by Dolly'sPoems

Butterflies love the Margarita daisy. It sure is sacred in our local pollinator habitat. As for the dandelion, they are quite ugly and invasive, but I've heard they make good wine! Nice poem!

The Gift by Sally Law

Rejection can be personal ( My mother never liked anything I ever gave her) or objective, like a rejected piece of writing. I mentored a high school girl (back before e-mail) who wanted to be a writer but wouldn't submit anything anywhere. I told her the rejection letter is proof that she tried and proof that I wasn't wasting my time. When she got her first rejection, she was so proud she wrote me a poem about how appreciative she was of me that I "kicked her butt." (She didn't use those words, but that's basically what I did ;)

Fearful Thoughts by Dolly'sPoems

Excellent

In your poem I can feel the throbbing sensation of fear, that chime delivered in one's head. When I look at that complex rhyming scheme, I wonder, even with your tremendous talent, did you ever fear you would not be able to do it? I'm afraid I don't have any sixes left to give! ; )

Dolly, I'm more intrigued with your painting than I am your poetry. Some years back I wrote a column about a Turkish artist who had an art show at a local library. For kids, she made coloring sheets of some of her work. This looks like it could have been in her exhibit. Love it. (Nice poem, too.)

The Tale of the Happy Biscuit by Natalie Goodwin

Good

I read this three times and it doesn't all seem to flow as well as I think it should. Maybe if you read it aloud, you could put the accents in the right places. I've judged oral poetry contests and we were sometimes surprised at how much better the poem was when read aloud by the poet. Wishing you well in the contest.

What a clever intriguing story. You hooked me in with your first sentence and kept me captive to the end where you caught me off guard with the sMe words. Good luck!

Vacation Trials by lauralumummu

Excellent

Your comment"vacations sometimes let you down" describes this one in more ways than one. What a blessing that you kept your faith.
One note: this should read "paperwork to fill out waiting for us in the regular mail."
