thomas romanelli's Profile:
My name is Thomas Romanelli, although I often use the pseudonym ti raam when writing poetry. I'm from northern New Jersey and have been writing for most of my life. The inspiration for my poems is drawn from social, spiritual, philosophical, and mythological sources. In addition to writing, I am a musician, songwriter, and draw with pastels. I am interested in all types of music, but I especially love Jazz; R & B; Indian; African; and Irish folk ballads. I'm a devotee of RajaYoga and the Shakta sect of Hinduism.

These delicious aromas like foreign countrieshj elliothj...i think you are a talented poet, though i must say, this one is very poorly written and has me totally confused. the rhythm is nice, but the flow and the words are jumbled and much of it doesn't make sense. is it morning? is it night? do you mean the aromas remind you of foreign countries? are you saying you give into them as a foreign country would give in to them? or do you mean you would give into them as you would give into a foreign country? it's unclear. i think your idea is good, but not good enough to compensate for poor presentation. i know you are capable of creating great poetry, hj, but i don't want to "sugar coat" this critique--that would be misleading to you.2004-02-08 01:22:19
BlueJane A DayThis is really nice, Jane. I love your idea--expressions of the color blue in it's various aspects (The baptismal blue of the ocean breaking for the first time over land and rock--wow, that is beautiful! ) You seem to have a great talent for imagery. On second thought, I don't think it's really nice, I think it's brilliant! 2004-02-07 18:59:26
A Disturbing PoemRobin Ann CrandellRobin...this is disturbing, but in a graphic, rather than psychological sense. I'm not sure what you are trying to say; it comes across as a semi-comical ghost story. In addition, there are some errors in spelling and grammer which really kill it. Sorry, but the only thing I found disturbing about this poem, was in reading it. 2004-02-07 18:18:41
Puppet TheoryDeniMari Z.I think your analogy is interesting, although it's not original. The language is fine, but I suspect some errors in spelling (the puppet looses? do you mean loses?). It's a decent attempt at metaphorical expression, but overall I don't think it's very good. 2004-02-07 17:51:50
Since god left Chicagohj ellioth j...this is a great poem; beautiful in both language and imagery. i did, however, find the line "I've just missed him" to be ambiguous. is it meant in the sense of "I've RECENTLY missed him" or "I've MERELY missed him"? i am by no means criticizing it, in fact i think it makes the poem more interesting by leaving it open to interpretation. on an emotional level, the poem is amazingly diverse. it evoked loneliness, isolation, hope, and a sense of freedom. in my opinion, you've created a truly brilliant work. please write more, h j. tom 2004-02-07 13:08:29
