The Music of Stillness by victortouche

This is an unusual but poignant point of view of the deceased. It reads like an out of body experience and in a way it is. The lines are simple, the imagery vivid, the message is one of no regrets for an expected event.

This poem asks a question that really calls for reflection. So many of modern conveniences have added to modern problems, but on the other hand those same conveniences have solved many of the problems of the past. After some reflection I must say no, the good old days are wonderful memories but not wonderful ways to do things.

Palindromes are difficult enough with just numbers and letters but in complete sentences they are a big challenge. You have succeeded in adhering to the form of the palindrome and actually make sense of your message. well done

Farewell Mum by winspiration

This is a beautiful tribute to your mother and the details you include about her individualize her to the reader so that she is a person in her own right as well as your mother. The tone is loving and there should be no apology for tears, as a matter of fact the apology would be necessary if there were no tears. Strength is in the love, not in the self control.


Poetic Friend
Thank you, MaryKelly. I was aiming for intensity with poem. I am glad you point out such.

The Tortured Poet by Poetic Friend

Excellent

There is an intensity to this poem that has been achieved in very few words, but very effective words. I get the impression from this poem that the need to write becomes intense for the poet and the relief when the writing is finished is like being cured of something. I think most writers can relate very well to this poem.

Before you came by Sandra du Plessis

The strength of this poem to me is in its contrasts emphasized by the image of the merry-go-round and the roller coaster. The merry-go-round offers safety and predictability while the roller coaster offers a wild, thrilling experience. This becomes a metaphor for the romantic relationship the speaker discovers.

The imagery in this poem is reflective since it highlights the tiny and the enormous aspects of the galaxy. In these brief words you convey a sense of awe at the components of nature.

Accepting Change by Unspoken94

Chapter 59 of the book Conversations

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level

When I finished reading this story I couldn't help but think of the fact that even though we think we are in charge of lives we are not and Stephen's experience demonstrates this perfectly. All our plans and prospects can change in an instant, or over time, but they do change. I love the emphasis on adapting to the changes because that's still something we can be in charge of.

Mary, that's exactly what I was trying to do. You got it, girl. :-)

Swallow Voices by Spitfire

Excellent

IN this very brief poem you have captured the irony of the same words being used in very different contexts, which to me emphasizes the differences of their meaning with a sense of humor that comes from the different images these words create.
