Really? No decorating? But you can decorate your own place, right? You should put lots of decorations! I'm so sorry to hear about the terrible rise in cases there. I did like the "coup de foudre" you felt with the Christmas movies!
It's fun to read your monologue and it expressed my feelings l, too. I really want to see family in Christmas but it's hard now due to COVID19. I hear that the death rate in general population is less than 2% while it's 20% for people over 70. I pray I can go to Mexico at the end of January and most people will have vaccine by then.
Spot-on! My sentiments exactly.
I know [comma] no biggie
deny that it is [omit NOT] real
four season realism [REALITY]
cheese [CHEESY] movies
speak [omit UP] my mind
They ... makes [MAKE] me wanna try everything
put many asides [ASIDE]
The devil no is in power [the devil is not in power]
Great imagery in this poem. You certainly packed volume in those lines, and I liked the message.
This should do very well in the contest - good luck in the booths.
I have mixed feelings about the Holiday restrictions of the pandemic, because, although I love celebrating, I feel that they are necessary. The speaker in this piece certainly shows her spunk!
I think you must be suffering in Canada with the sheer number of infections and deaths, the trouble with a free country is really thinks that Covid understands what freedom, I think freedom to catch Covid -19 is probably more the go, beautifully written Iza, blessings Roy
I believe you are Iza. I just read your full bio, and it's clear you have many amazing accomplishments in all categories of writing. And in 3 languages.
It's an honor to know you. :>) Brad
There is a lot of strength in this poem for so few syllables. I imagine the power as an all powerful being - either religious or mythical. His effects on the world as he passes will be legion.
Iza! Haven't heard from you in a while. I was worried when I heard on the Canadian news about Alberta's rise in Covid cases. Hope you are staying safe and healthy!
I like your poem. It sounds like the wind is talking about the "power to roam." Best wishes in the contest!
I like your poem.
One tear cracking is quite an amazing image. There is the visual of the tear and the sound image of cracking...quite a great line.
Your poem carries a lot of weight and makes us think.
Thank you for your work.
