poesyapprentice: Stopping in for just a brief moment to wish everyone a happy, safe holiday season. Had a little setback with my health but hope to be back on site soon! Best of times to you! xxx

poesyapprentice: Charger on my laptop is a gonner so I'll be back when I get a new one. This site doesn't work on my old phone. Happy writing everyone!

poesyapprentice: Thank you, my friends, for your thoughts and prayers. I made it thru surgery, and, after an extremely tough first day, I'm doing ok. Family was in for the weekend so I need to catch up on my rest, but I hope to be back to reviewing soon. XX

    Debra White: Wishing you a speedy recovery :) x

poesyapprentice: Going in for major surgery on Thursday (a complete abdominal hysterectomy) and will be off work for over a month. Would appreciate prayers for finances and healing. Thank you! xx

poesyapprentice: I can do this!

poesyapprentice: Free Verse shouldn't have intentional rhyming, but Free Style can...just sayin' ; )
August 19, 2013 at 12:40PM
    DIS-illusioned: Free to be versatile in free verse 'n style.
    August 19, 2013 at 4:09PM
    Kiki12: sure it can, chickie, it just shouldn't have a structured rhyme pattern like ABAB, but intentional, internal, or slant rhymes are acceptable in free verse. It was meant to be on the same bar as alliteration, assonance, all the other devices used...
    August 19, 2013 at 8:16PM
    poesyapprentice: Thank you for your input, girlie! I should have clarified that I meant true end rhymes, which I don't believe are supposed to be included, especially in an intentional patterned way. Internal and slant are fine. Free style and free verse are not the same IMHO. In free style anything goes and this is not so in free verse. I really consider Donaldww's essay On Free Verse to be an excellent and accurate reference. : )
    August 20, 2013 at 12:15PM
    Kiki12: I figured you meant the intentional end rhymes after I thought about it. I agree that free style and free verse are quite different. Keep the conversation going out there in poetry world, it's an important topic, I think :)
    August 21, 2013 at 8:18PM
    poesyapprentice: I'm glad you clarified, though, for anyone reading my page. Last thing I want to do is add to the confusion by not being clear on what I mean. Thanks, girlie. : ) xx
    August 21, 2013 at 11:12PM

poesyapprentice: I would like to suggest that anyone wishing to learn about Free Verse check out DonaldWW's profile. He wrote an excellent, informative article that I highly recommend! Also, I'm sending a note to Tom suggesting a link to the article, or the article itself, be placed on Poetry Dances.
June 19, 2013 at 3:03AM
    poesyapprentice: Tom said he would read it, now let's hope he uses it!
    June 19, 2013 at 12:24PM
    poesyapprentice: Donald said he was! Yeah! Now which one can we vamp up next? Any takers? Really would love to see it be the best resource out there on a site 'like' ours. : )
    June 21, 2013 at 11:40AM
    poesyapprentice: To my knowledge it is still not up there yet. sigh. Wonder what the hold up is.
    July 14, 2013 at 11:18PM

poesyapprentice: Wild nights! Wild nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile the winds
To a heart in port,--
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.

Rowing in Eden!
Ah! The sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!

poesyapprentice: Not the greatest pic, but a most recent snapshot... a trade to uncage the dragon ; )

    Barb Hensongispsaca: Nice picture, girl. Love the piece tsikilili, and the authors notes to explain.
    March 29, 2013 at 11:59AM
    poesyapprentice: Oh you are so sweet! Thank you for both compliments! I was hoping you would enjoy it, Barb. Have I asked what band of Cherokee to which you belong? My family are members of the Cherokee Nation (Oklahoma). Time for me to get to work. xx
    March 29, 2013 at 12:53PM
    Barb Hensongispsaca: Member of the Cherokee in North Carolina. I want to get my daughter back and keep her in the loop. Her heritage is important. Have not heard from you in a long time. Where are you and why nothing after the Golden Rule? I miss you
    April 20, 2013 at 4:52PM
    poesyapprentice: I just got your reply. Where is your daughter? I miss you too, I really do. Alot going on at home and in my head. There's three more after the Golden Rule. Hugs, my friend.
    April 29, 2013 at 4:07AM
    Barb Hensongispsaca: I don't know why I am not getting them. Will review as I love your work. My daughter is in Ohio where I am from. Clear your head thru writing girl. Ido.
    April 29, 2013 at 10:29AM
    poesyapprentice: Some of them are contest pieces so you won't be notified that I wrote them for blind contests. It's hard to write and keep up with everything at home and trying when I can to keep in touch with my friends here, but last night I finally found some time for the free verse. I hope you get your daughter back! Enjoyed chatting with you today girl and now I have to get my rear in gear for work, again, lol! Stay sweet : )
    April 29, 2013 at 11:15AM

poesyapprentice: Sweet, sweet nothing to say...

    ~Dovey: Congrats on the Temptation Contest!
    January 31, 2013 at 4:02AM
    charlyann: Congratulations Miss Temptation :)
    January 31, 2013 at 5:46AM
    poesyapprentice: thank you so much for the congrats, all of you!!!! : )

    Stepperdark: You have a new fan... your writing is uber segzy.
    February 20, 2013 at 6:11PM
    poesyapprentice: There you are Stepper! I sent you a little message, but didn't realize you had messaged here as I often forget to check. Thank you so much for the compliment and glad to have ya!
    February 22, 2013 at 2:48AM

poesyapprentice: I suppose what I wish to say first is thank you to those warm and welcoming peeps I have met in my short time here.. and then I will get down to the grit, lol! I am here to learn, first and foremost, so please be honest in your reviews. Those of you whose work I have reviewed, you already know that I am honest about yours. Some of you love that and some of you hate it, but I believe in honesty, with kindness and respect. If you ONLY want props then please don't read my reviews. This starving artist needs every member dollar I can get and I feel that honest reviews keep the integrity of the process alive here. Blessings to each and every one of you!
September 5, 2012 at 5:44AM
    Sarkems: OK, I have to ask this, because I keep seeing this word in this context. What do you mean by props? To me, it is short for "properties" as in stage props, or it means holding something up, neither of which fit. Confused...
    September 5, 2012 at 12:00PM
    Sally Carter: Pending a reply, I'm guessing it's another way of saying "fluff" reviews? ie propping up the writer's self esteem?
    September 5, 2012 at 4:14PM
    poesyapprentice: Sorry for the lack of clarity! As reviewers we are to tell both what we don't like and what we do. Some only want to hear the good, to have their ego boosted so to speak, and do not want to know what others think could be improved about their work. I don't want fluff reviews because that won't help me to improve as a writer. If I can't find anything I like about someones work I don't review it because I'm not here to rag on people's work and bring them down, but if there are things I like and some I don't then I give an honest review and hope it is helpful to them. There have been some really great pieces promoted on this site and I love it when I can award my sixes,too.
    September 6, 2012 at 11:25AM
    Jaguar80: I think your reviews are wonderfully helpful
    September 24, 2012 at 12:04AM
    Earl of Oxford: Love the new profile pic, Marsha (latest one on 25th Sep). Hey, you ALMOST look intelligent in that pose. haha! By the way, my previous comments still stand.

    Ray xx
    September 25, 2012 at 10:50AM
    poesyapprentice: Jaguar80- Thank you so much! I have had some really good help on here and being able to give back a little makes me feel good! Blessings to you!
    September 26, 2012 at 1:22PM
    poesyapprentice: So sweet of you Ray, lol! and thanks sooo much : )! Muah!
    September 26, 2012 at 1:23PM
    xotic flotsam: Let it be known, I welcome constructive observations, including your thoughtful reviews.
    October 20, 2012 at 8:11PM
    poesyapprentice: Thank you so much Exotic : ) I haven't been on in a bit and I'm sure you have one or two coming your way by now. Happy Holidays to you!
    December 25, 2012 at 8:28PM
    Child of the King: Hi there
    I just finished my bio-- nice to meet you--:-)
    January 2, 2013 at 8:59PM
    charlyann: Big Congrats Chickie!!!..well done...don't blow all your winnings on sketchy fellas and booze
    January 26, 2013 at 12:24PM
    Jaguar80: Who's a contest winner???!!!!
    January 29, 2013 at 3:03AM
    Stepperdark: I know its been a while since your post on sept 5th but it didn't seem to me like you ever got an answer. The modern urban slang usage of the word 'Props' would be an abbreveation of the word Proper, as in proper recognition or proper respect. Its a form of accolades.
    February 20, 2013 at 6:00PM
    poesyapprentice: Stepper, seems I keep missing you here and not hearing from you anywhere else, lol! You are right, a specific definition as you have given here was not supplied. Now, why so mysterious and frequently absent. Do pop round in message to say hello, won't you? I frequently forget to check here for comments.
    April 6, 2013 at 12:51PM
    poesyapprentice: Jaguar, speaking of absent, where the hell ya been, Sweetie! I've no notification of continuation of your story and I'd like to get to know my favorite author a wee bit better, too. : ) So hurry back! xx
