Poem TitlePoet NameCritique Given by Jordan Brendez BandojoCritique Date
The Only Childcheyenne smythHi Cheyenne, Is that the grief of being an only child? I’m sorry to hear that. You know, we are 10 in the family and the joy of being a big family is no compare. It led me to write a poem “Big Family Photo” which I submitted before. I am not making you envious but just want to share a little about me. You should not feel bad at all. Being an only child is even a gift as all the love and attention of your parents are all yours. Anyway, your use of splendid imageries excites me and makes me long for your next submission. Regards, Jordan 2012-09-24 13:58:45
BitternutMary J CoffmanHi Mary, I hope you are doing fine. Your poem is doleful and I wish it's not based on your personal experience. The presentation of the subject is very vivid by applying metaphor and simile. It's elegantly crafted. Take care, Jordan2012-09-23 05:27:03
Flower of the LadyJames C. HorakHi JCH, Long time no see! I have been out for quite a while and thanks that I stumbled again at your poetry. This one is very short one but it tells a lot and it truly depicts the essence of the topic. The use of beauty, splendor, devotion, emotion, petals…it’s all in there. It can tell a lot of a lady. Thanks for sharing. Best Regards, Jordan2012-09-22 05:26:05
Faithcheyenne smythHi Cheyenne, My first thought upon reading the title is that this must be a serious one which can sometimes disinterest me. However, as I read along, it did not bore me at all because of your wonderful descriptions and brilliant ideas of associating faith. I like it so much. Jordan 2012-09-17 12:48:14
ode to summers endEllen K LewisHi Ellen, You used very youthful thougts to describe summer. Your summer experience must be memorable with your loved one. How I long to not to end a summer time. Your presentation is simple yet full of imagery. I enjoyed it very much.Thanks for sharing! Jordan 2012-09-08 03:44:17
Musingscheyenne smythHi Cheyenne, Such a lovely poem. While reading it, I am reflecting of my life with my wife, how the promise of love keeps up together. Our magnetic pull lets us walk over our little earth and not fall off --- I like the decription very much. You applied Physics here. The ending is very inspiring. I am relaxed. It’s like I took a break from my busy day at work. Take care, Jordan 2012-09-04 11:07:46
When the Dark Passenger comes callingMichael BirdA metaphor that talks about reality. I like the presentation of your thoughts, metaphorically done! Thanks for sharing with us!2011-09-13 03:16:05
Soul DreamMandie J OverockerHi Mandie, This is a refreshment to one's tired soul. It's nice to feel when we realize that we are already free from worries and anxieties, when the pain is over and all we got to do is dream. I like the simile being used especially in the first stanza. You have some rhymes applied so I am wondering if you could observe the rhyming all throughout the poem. Overall, a nice read. Thanks for sharing! Jordan2011-09-09 01:40:45
Give Yourself A BreakDeniMari Z.A break where you are refreshed with God's presence. Thank you DeniMari for enriching this reader's soul! :) Nice to be back here at TPL! God bless! 2011-09-06 06:54:11
Magic SongJoe P. OGradyHi Joe, I think this is the first time that I have ever read your poem. And I love it! So inspiring and sweet. This is a nice tribute to your loved one. It makes me recall the sweet memories of my teenage life. Now that I have my wife, I would just kiss her and let her read this poem when I'm home. lol Thanks, Jordan2010-04-15 14:24:44
Please Read (again)James C. HorakHi JCH, Nice to be back here with your inspiring message. Although I may just be messing up here because I have no new submissions yet. (No time for it now.) Hope you allow me to just read poems here and give a little input. Will again write soon. Just too busy at work and need to attend to family right now. For over 3 years that I have not participated here, I am glad that you are still here, the TPL peeps, the coolest playground where I used to hang out before. Thanks, Jordan 2010-04-15 14:19:10
March On March! [vote]Dellena RovitoHi Dellena, How are you? Just got back here in TPL after my long absence. Do we now need to submit the list of poems in our voting list every month. Just wondering. God Bless! Thanks, Jordan2010-04-15 14:09:21
A Cottagecheyenne smythHi Cheyenne, What a pleasure to read this poem. So relaxing. That's the dream that I always want to dream. The form is neet with the rhyming that enhance the topic. Keep writing. Thanks, Jordan2010-04-15 12:41:20
Last Dance With the Devil in HellDeniMari Z.Hi DeniMari, A great realization you showed us in this. Light should prevail against darkness. My favorite part is the ending. It gives me an inspiration and hope. I was absent from TPL for so long and this makes me long to come back more often. Thanks for the treat. Thanks, Jordan2010-04-13 18:03:06
ThiefLora SilveyHi Lora, Nice read. Good use of simile and metaphor. Thanks, Jordan2010-04-13 12:43:32
Teton haiku revisedmarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, A great pleasure to read your poem again after my long absence here in TPL! Thank you for this wonderful treat. Jordan 2007-06-03 04:41:33

Lightmarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, Just dropped by and stumbled at this very nice poetry of yours. A very lovely picture! So much to inspire. Thanks for the notes, I wouldn't have recognized the form. I am glad that TLP is back up and running again. Excited to crituique although not quite have enough time. God bless, Jordan 2006-10-28 20:11:41
a fire of yesJoanne M UppendahlHi Auntie Joanne, I'm so glad that you are back to share us your gift. I always wonder where you are and what are you doing when I visit TPL although I don't have enough time to critique. But I do read poems and check the link once in awhile. This one is such a special treat for all of us. As always, you amaze us with your nature-gifted thoughts, your passion for poetry. I can say nothing more. A million thanks for sharing this to us! You are always special to our hearts! Jordan2006-10-25 21:54:21
Now that I am deadMark Andrew HislopHi Mark, I am patiently waiting for this poem to move up to my critiquing list so I can give a take on this one. I have read this several times and found this to be a wise writing. I mean it takes experience, it takes knowledge and wisdom to come with this piece. And of course I am thrilled to cast my vote on this. I am sure, that anyone who can read your title would be drawn in. After I read the whole body of the poem, I exclaimed, "You should be a great man!" 2006-07-06 00:28:57
ConstantDellena RovitoHi Dellena, How well you conveyed the idea of "constant" and "change" in a terse verse. Nothing to say more, but Goodluck. (smile) Jordan2006-07-05 23:55:28
Secretsmarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, Here I am once again, I am almost done with my critiquing job! Not really critiquing but just a reading job! A deep reflection of your life but what bondage of secret tying you up? So poignant! By the way, are you using "undertow" as an adjective to describe memory? My dictionary is only saying it is a noun. Not a big deal anyway. It just made me stop and think. (Smile) Thanks for sharing this with us. Good luck! Jordan2006-07-05 23:38:06
I Believemarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, I believe in everything that you say here and I believe in your writing. Write on. Take care, Jordan PS. How's the weeds over there? (Smile)2006-07-04 21:57:07
Perspectivestephen g skipperHi Steve, This is reality you have depicted in a full bloom of imageries. Life is what we make it. Surely you have a good life! I miss your presence here! Jordan2006-07-04 21:28:56
PassageNancy Ann HemsworthHi Nancy, Purple, hmm...this made me remember your poem "Lavender" which was splendid. But this one connotes doleful sound. I am glad there is hope amidst darkness. This poem is casted upon simplicity of writing but so deep is the message, a sage to live by! Jordan PS. Hey, are you so busy there? You just critiqued a few poems unlike before! I hope you are doing fine. Somehow I miss your presence here! (Smile) 2006-07-04 21:16:50
Dirt Devilmarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, Good chance to read this poem of yours before the end of the voting period. I am afraid I will miss out some of the June poem submissions because I may run out of time. Anyway, I came across with this poem before and still amazed by the way you descibed things/nature. You must be living in a place abundant of God's gift of nature. Wyoming, right? Take care and Happy Holiday! Jordan2006-07-04 18:51:54
FinalityKenneth R. PattonHi Ken, Good to know that you got over it. You must be facing a different perspective now! I got interested with the appearance of the two "love-cats". Dating? You should be fine then. Have a good one. Jordan2006-07-04 00:30:03
KaKaKachinaJames C. HorakHi James, The title is something unique to me as it is my first encounter of that. I believe in your writing, the intellect, the poetic quality, the sage. So please continue to stick around. Jordan2006-07-03 22:11:40
Pioneer WomanJana Buck HanksHi Jana, I have no suggestions for this one. This is already effectively detailed. Your descriptions are just apt. Jordan 2006-07-03 00:30:55
My Helping HandDeniMari Z.Hi DeniMari, Thanks for posting this. This is boosting my "weak" belief. When God makes me realize things He makes me think that unfavored events are way to blessings The wonder of it all - surpassess anything small Any disbeliefs I drag around with me disappear instantly I would probably make my own version of your stanza. (smile) You know, I sometimes think that God has forsaken me when what happens is unfavorable to me. I frequently act like a child, giving God a warning. Like saying to God that if you don't want this thing to happen in my favor I would think you have forsaken me. (smile) It always leads me to a thought that everything happens has a purpose! Thank you for this! Jordan 2006-07-02 06:17:00
My Home On the PrairieEllen K LewisHi Ellen, The voting period is almost done. I am just reading here. I just want to say that I enjoyed this poem as it talks about nature the way you describe the dwelling place is kind of what I have experienced. In our province we have abundant trees, grasses and the gift of nature. Hopefully this will remain abundant as I am afraid some people are doing illegal logging. The ending is poignant and I feel like I am part of it! Jordan2006-07-02 04:13:24
It's "Just Another Love Song"Ellen K LewisHi there Ellen, I really enjoyed this piece. It is my first encounter to a poem has the style of yours forming the thoughts through titles of several songs. And even in the title it's a song! Crafted very well. The songs that I commonly hear from my favorite FM radio are "how deep is your love"?, "I need a friend", "unchained melody" and "wind beneath my wings" - and I like them very much! By the way, I always appreciate a theme about love or courting or the like maybe because I am in my 20's and courting and everything about that is still fresh in my mind although I have my own family already. Thanks for sharing this! Indeed, this is a fun and so much enjoyed. Jordan 2006-06-27 04:36:40
Solstice of SufferingMary J CoffmanHi Mary, I am so sorry for the loss. I don't know how I can express myself but I am so sad and felt the pain of loss. I haven't really felt the real situation where I loss someone dear to me but I know in my heart how hard it could be. But good to know that you are recovering now. Nice title with "Solstice of Suffering"- the word "solstice" with the rhyming scheme somehow compensates the gravity of the suffering your poem depicts. Yes, sad to note that there is the existence of Fate’s cruel disdain, but I consider purposely. Your choice of words is strong to convey the true message. I especially like the way you write the last stanza, imageries are superb with matching assonance. Thanks for sharing this with us, Mary. Blessings, Jordan2006-06-26 03:34:38
Rhythm of RomanceEllen K LewisHi Ellen, This is so sweet! I like every line you put in here. So abundant of love and yes the rhythm of romance is perfectly depicted. From the start all the way, you gave us imageries surely make man and a woman live happily ever after! Thanks for sharing this with. More...please! (smile) Jordan2006-06-25 04:07:36
LavenderNancy Ann HemsworthHi Nancy, This is the shortest poem so far I have read from you. So womanly in style and image! I recalled a female friend who is really fond of wearing lavender colored dresses and accessories. Thanks for this beautiful scene and smell of lavender perfume. Jordan 2006-06-19 03:40:54
A Spot On The Prairiemarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, I find this a thrilling piece as I read it through! I did not expect the ending to be as peaceful as it is! I thought it was a sort of a nightmare just like what I posted. Your descriptions are just apt to make the sense of thrill. Did you recently watch a movie about ghost something? heheh Thanks for sharing this with us! More action-filled poem, please! Jordan2006-06-18 03:42:46
Remembering Mothers DayEllen K LewisSuch a lovely inspirational poem, Ellen! So simple are your words but the thought is so great to touch your reader's heart especially to those moms out there. This makes me missed my mother so much. She is far away from me right now. I hope to visit her and the my father soon. Thank you for sharing this! Jordan PS. Welcome to TLP. I have not recognized your name before so you must be new! Hope you will stay with us! 2006-06-17 04:23:36
Come Walk With Memarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, Thanks for this one. I surely need to read this poem today because I am in need of his help as I am in a situation where I am on a boat and it is almost to capsize although it is not that big deal if this boat overturns but hopefully it would not. Anyway, I just need to come walk with you and frolic in His festival of awe. Very inspiring poem! Your words are wonderful. Jordan PS. I am also afraid that I would get less time in critiquing here as my work gives me a hectic schedule. But I would do my best to be logged in here and atleast say a few words to those poem posted! 2006-06-17 04:17:56
My Love For Youmarilyn terwillegerHi Marilyn, Indeed, I have started my critiquing task today! Atleast to say a few words. Have been busy lately doing some business matters. Oh, here is you "My Love For You" again which is a treat for all of us! Nothing I can say except that this is perfect sonnet! Jordan 2006-06-12 04:40:49
RefugeDellena RovitoHi Dellena, The last poem that I would need to critique this month! Glad that you are feeling alright. Yes these things that happen around us are sometimes unfavorable and this continues to worsen. Political and social issues can be controlled but it seemed to be uncontrollable. Environmental catastrophes are not that controllable but it's all about taking of our nature that we can do. Thanks for this great message and hope this will serve to awaken each one of us. Jordan2006-06-02 15:24:02
To dream of sleepstephen g skipperHi Steve, I was intrigued by your title "To dream of sleep" - something that stirs one's mind who would want to dream of sleep. Or is this a metaphor or idiomatic expression? That's what came up first in my mind! And there you go... Now is the time to sleep but scared of what my dreams shall bring --- sometimes I also find a hard time to sleep because I was afraid to get a nightmare. I had this nightmare that really bothered me so much! I like the association of ferryman, bosun, all about maritime... "My soul would have to have a rucksack to carry all the cash required to bribe Gods bosun and be spared from the lash" Simple thought yet unexpected and compelling! And the ending is effecting by throwing a question. Thank you for sharing this us, Steve. Keep them up! Jordan2006-05-27 22:46:21
Tree SwallowsKenneth R. PattonI Kenneth, Thanks for sharing us this wonderful treat of springtime. Your depiction of this passerine bird gives me a cheerful feel. It wants me to lilt to the open field and watch these ferraris of the sky. Thanks for enegizing my mind with your piece. Jordan 2006-05-27 16:26:46
A Poet's Dilemmamarilyn terwillegerHow are you, Marilyn? I hope you are not having an intense unfavorable situation or something... So, let me read on...Oh, I simply love this! I am thinking of words to describe but it seemed I am stripped of words. Speechless I should say! This is wonderfully written. So poetically crafted with words, words, words...it definitely satisfy my craving...Kodus to this one! Jordan 2006-05-27 16:11:02
Orchids of the Imaginationstephen g skipperHi Steve, This is so touching and really depicting Mell's presence. Your words are just beautiful so are Mell's. She has put up herself a monument in us that would be cherished forever through her being a gardener of thoughts. Rhythm would be her roots Words her buds, poems her petals Understanding her sweet nectar My favorite stanza which is the ultimate countenance of Mell. Thank you so much for sharing this with us! Jordan2006-05-27 15:53:29
DaydreamJoanne M UppendahlHi Auntie, So nice of you to write this natureFUL poem. It tickles my senses all the way and to the maximum level. I could imagine how your mind soared so high to daydream these things, placing yourself as the nature. How wonderful this experience should be! Nothing I can say more, this is a treat for all of us! More, please! Jordan 2006-05-26 21:51:02
LeavingRick BarnesHi Rick, First of all, thank you for posting again. I am glad that you are back. And so nice of you to go back and started this tribute to our beloved departed. Mell I'm sure is glad that we remember her, especially you make us feel her presence here. The tone of the poem is a kind of a sorrowful one but glad to note there is a realization of courage to move on. In every unwanted happening we regret and refuse to face but everything has its own purpose, I for one believed it. You described about expressionless face, emptiness, nothingness and the like, and yet your poem if full of meaning! I hope you post again. Jordan2006-05-22 22:20:23
PollinatorDellena RovitoHi Dellena, Glad that you posted again. I have been always waiting for who would post next because I have responded to all poems so far. I find your theme unexpected, I mean I have not thought about making a poem about pollinator or pollination although I have a love poem associating bees and flowers and pollen grains, stigma and the like. Indeed, your theme makes me thrilled and excited. The first line is interesting! "Flowers open themselves at pollinator's command." I can relate a picture about a choral conductor or choreographer giving commands/signal to start the singing/dancing. A splendid picture indeed! The ending as well is dramatic. Pollination/reproduction is about Chemistry and indeed, your poem has a good chemistry! Take care, Jordan2006-05-21 18:41:00
LegacyMark Andrew HislopHi Mark, With your title alone, "Legacy", this must suggest something to be taken seriously. And indeed the theme on PTSD and alcoholism is something that we need to ponder on. Two-line style is neat and enjambments are just fine but I think "Tireisias" is spelled as Tiresias or Teiresias if you are talking about Greek Mythology but that is not a big deal here. You poem is powerful to convey its message and written in a very artistic way. Thanks for sharing, Mark. This is your second poem so far for this month and I hope I can see more postings from you. Jordan2006-05-19 23:46:20
Longingsmarilyn terwillegerHi there Marilyn, I often wonder how do you do each moment that I log in here in TPL. I know you are always there active same as me. But...don't want to talk about the sentiment here! My longing in this site is to have those people come back.... It's beyond my reach though. Anyway, I hope your qualms have been put to an end now. Let's try make those rhapsodies satisfy us once again!!! Jordan2006-05-18 23:52:11
Moonlight's Magic DanceNancy Ann HemsworthHi there Nancy, A fantastic one this is! By the way, I have visited the website and I can see the blooming you! Thanks for that! Anyway, I have not read the original version of this one yet I am sure that this one stands solid and outstanding. Solid and outstanding in giving a much-enjoyed entertainment, to the maximum level I should say! My question is..., who was that MOON in your magic dance? You must have taken him to your journey in life now. Kodus on this one! Jordan2006-05-18 23:09:22
