The peace after the storm seems to make the storm worth while as once anger has been released, there is time for regretful apologies, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

The first two lines of this poem flow and connect well. The last line
says it all! Thank you for the author's notes - this is a place to get
thoughts and feelings out. I pondered on these words and enjoyed
the last line as "peace reigns". The artwork goes well with these words.

This work has reached the exceptional level

The only thing I would suggest for this fab poem is a larger font (like a 20) so the green doesn't bleed together. You and I seem to be on the same wavelength with the aftermath of activity, an almost supernatural silence takes over. You got a weiner here.

Yes, it feels so good to find creative release for pent up feelings. You have captured that so very well in an image filled 20 syllable poem.

Great job with this and I wish you much luck with the Committee. :)

This piece certainly evokes imagery and emotion; as a writer, you have done in a few syllables what many cannot do in a thousand words. That takes talent. Using words like "raging" and contrasting it with "peace" is tough to do when you are writing of a single entity (crashing waves.) Kudos to you, and keep writing!

A beautiful image (very well chosen), and a lovely poem (very well written). The words apply to nature, but also to life itself, I believe. Best wishes for your entry in the 20 Syllable contest.

This is a nicely written 20 syllable poem. Waves crashing wind-swept waters. Raging around whirlpools. When all is ended peace reigns. Beautiful photo to compliment your poem. Good luck in the contest.

You have made excellent use of your twenty syllables in this thoughtful descriptive piece that might be taken in different ways--referring to nature, stormy then calm; and the human heart or outlook, stormy then calm.

well, you certainly have a lyrical way of doing it. I have to smile.
Though I can see your meaning, with your crashing and raging, you end peacefully, which I guess is wishful thinking.
At any rate, writing poems is a good way to do it. Keep it up, it's good therapy.
Good luck in the contest.

Gorgeous--stunning alliteration and assonance in WWWWW and RR--good SS title choice that doesn't repeat the words of the poem--which shows what the title tells!
