|Poem Title||Poet Name||Critique Given by Lora Silvey||Critique Date|
|Ghosttown||Mark Steven Scheffer||A wonderful poem and so spot on...It is truly a shame what has transpired with the site. Best always with your endeavors in the craft. Lora||2017-06-13 14:39:28|
|Butterflies||Joe Gustin||Joe you offer us a delightful penning of the possibilities that are beyond the here and now. Your well chosen words couple with the gentle meter of your lines makes this a most enjoyable read. Thank you for sharing this with us. Lora||2016-09-25 16:04:21|
|If I were the wind||Joe Gustin||Joe this is so delicious...wonderful images...a feeling of personification perhaps for the elements and their powers/abilities... I really like what you've done here, the wistfulness, the devotion and depth of feeling, and then your close ties it all up neatly. A very enjoyable read, thank you for sharing. Lora||2016-09-10 12:17:29|
|Time||Joe Gustin||I like the description you've given the emotion of which you speak, likening it to a female, very clever--every well executed. I do wonder if perhaps in the last two lines you could change one of your "too"s to another word so you aren't duplicating the word...just a thought. A very enjoyable poem, well penned. Lora||2016-08-30 15:34:52|
|ENCHANTING SKY||Paul H. Roefs||Paul you create a delicate feel with this poem...gentle and soft aura lends itself to your easy read. I do have to ask, what the word was that you were going for in the second stanza line 2 (perhaps-insurance)? In your last stanza, was the last word in the last line suppose to be "sky" and not "shy"? An enjoyable read. Best always, Lora||2016-08-30 15:28:36|
|Music and the Blue Glass Horse||Joanne M Uppendahl||Joanne, thank you for sharing such a delicate and delicious poem with us. You give pondering a whole new meaning. Your verbiage conjures images that delight the mind, a special astral journey...exquisite. Your offering was most enjoyable, nice to see some of your pennings again. Best always, Lora||2016-07-10 02:45:47|
|Woe Will Not Win||DeniMari Z.||Your poem speaks volumes of philosophy and belief, yes--chosen will suffer, nothing comes without a battle or sacrifice it seems and yet who determines what is construed as suffering or is it just a right of passage so to speak. The depth of your offering gives a close look into one who has or is coming to accept one's self as is, all facades torn down, priorities shifting, self awareness unique to former understanding. A most enlightening and enjoyable read. Best always, Lora||2016-06-08 19:50:25|
|Punitive Damages||DeniMari Z.||Deni your poem flows easily for me, your well chosen words are explicit in their meaning. Between the layers there is that tortured cry, things that you don't say; that silent scream. Inside the soul the truth is known, exceptance does not always give release... so yes-- write to me, perhaps it will be less painful to read. Bravo, nothing I would change. Lora||2016-05-12 18:54:54|
|My Soul Dreams||Joe Gustin||Hi Joe, this is such an easy and comfortable meditative moment that you have shared with us. I enjoyed the easy flow that pulls your reader through your lines and also causes one to stop and contemplate your thoughts. Nicely done...best always, Lora||2016-04-23 09:11:35|
|When last We Spoke||Joe Gustin||Oh wow, this is delicate and yet strong--the loving kindness, the gentleness and ease of the things you speak are a wonderful gift that you have been so kind as to pen and share with us humble readers. I know my words do not do your work justice, most enjoyable read--any woman would be delighted to have such written to her. Lora||2016-04-16 19:38:28|
|Words||Joe Gustin||Joe, great depth and your wording draws your reader into your emotional journey. Heart felt, and strong...this denotes a forlorn cry that all of us have felt... Thank you for sharing, best always, Lora||2016-04-16 19:32:51|
|They Come Back To Visit||DeniMari Z.||Such a deep and compelling write...you've shared an intimate moment in your life, one can only travel quietly with you through your journey... Heart felt and a very unique rendering of this personal moment. Well done, hugs.Lora||2016-04-16 19:28:28|
|The Soul Has It's Own Language||DeniMari Z.||Deni, this is truly excellent. The short lines, the gentle cadence dances the reader down the page with ease. Awe, yes truly the soul has its own language and you've struck on the very essence of what that can be. I like the stance you've taken with this and the firmness of conviction. Excellent. Lora||2016-04-05 17:05:34|
|I so miss the tone nation||Joe Gustin||Such a wonderful gift you have created with this work. The depths of feeling for this person is so very refreshing--you speak with a humble honesty, not to woo or cajole, a statement of fact and put in such a pleasurable context. Thank you for sharing this work with us. This was a most enjoyable read and one that demanded to be read again and again. Lora||2016-04-05 17:02:18|
|Remember To Forget||DeniMari Z.||Wow, this speaks volumes...Love the flow and easy read--simply smooth. You take your reader by the hand and with such a grace, you allow them to walk through this place in your thoughts with you. Gentle yet starkly aware of life's trials and treasures; while a bit melancholy it still leaves one with hope--if only by being able to question how to deal with all things--live. I enjoyed this immensely; both for the beauty of your penning and for your growth as a accomplished poet. Kudos, Lora||2016-04-05 16:54:45|
|My Father's Hand (Words of an unborn child)||Wanda S. Thibodeaux||Another well thought out and excellently scripted offering from your accomplished pen. Your descriptive word choices along with the way you've presented them; lends to an easy flow and creates a warmth for the unity of which you speak. No suggestions, well done and very enjoyable. Lora||2015-11-01 02:38:30|
|words rush||Wanda S. Thibodeaux||Wanda I truly enjoyed this brief but well stated little poem. It says just exactly what needs to be said in such an easy flowing style that puts a smile on this readers face, well done. Lora||2015-11-01 02:35:29|
|holocaust||Medard Louis Lefevre Jr.||Mark this is so very well thought out, and while it flows so easily down the page the verbiage paints pictures that make the soul weep. You've done an excellent job of showing your deep passion about this and utter disgust at how it seems that so many are oblivious to the heinous crimes committed against our fellow man. Kudos for such a poignant write that demands the reader to pause and truly acknowledge what has gone on. Thank you for the post. Best always, Lora||2015-10-30 16:25:05|
|Excerpt From a War||Wanda S. Thibodeaux||Wow Wanda, what an industrious but accomplished undertaking. You capture your reader from the start and have no problem holding their attention as they move easily through your lines. This brought the reader right to the fore of the story/action. Your well chosen verbiage lends a true authenticity to the events depicted. Kudos on a superb piece...best always, Lora||2015-10-23 16:00:03|
|form without substance||charles r pitts||Good morning Charles, nice to see you...it's been some time "smile". I enjoyed your this poem, you deftly made your statement with so few words however they were so well chosen. Your statements are so true, seems to be so much of "form without substance" in all that we are surrounded with, I believe you touched all areas in your write. Your poem is definitely spot on... no nits. Best always, Lora||2015-10-23 10:42:54|
|Give GOD The Glory||Milton Robertson||Hello Milton, This is a very profound poem with good pace and well chosen verbiage. It is easy to see that you've spoken from the heart and there is nothing genuine emotion and praise in your poem. IMHO though, it would be so much easier to read if you'd lay out your writing in stanzas instead of stringing it out as a paragraph which would also give this awesome pinning more punch and garner more reads. Thank you for sharing this work with us. Best always, Lora||2015-10-21 18:34:09|
|The Bard tells us,||kevin Dunn||Nicely done Kevin, interesting turn of words, definitely made me stop and use my grey matter. Reads smoothly and easily and give the reader something to contemplate. Best always, Lora||2015-10-21 18:25:08|
|Drowing in Today||DeniMari Z.||Deni we just must quit walking these parallel roads, they are getting too cumbersome to my way of thinking if that is what one can call it. A very easy read filled with all the pathos of age and what seems to be the a bit of pivotal dogma for some of us. Your words more than amply describe the yo-yo syndrome of illness and all that seems to accompany this journey. I could feel every morsel of your pain in your writing and yet the resolve you left with-- this too you will conquer and rise above. OK, that's more than my ten cents... wouldn't change a thing, kudos. best always, Me||2015-10-21 18:22:48|
|For Mum||Joe Gustin||Joe, thank you for such a delicious and warm read. You put a smile on this reader's face, such loving sentiments metered out in just the right cadence and with such a delicate choice of verbiage with out being mushy. A most enjoyable read, wouldn't change a thing...best always. Lora||2015-10-16 17:57:22|
|A Conscious Fantasy||DeniMari Z.||Deni, This is great--wonderful free verse... there isn't one thing I would change. Your verbiage is descriptive and the form lends its-self easily to where you want your reader to pause for that moment of thought just before continuing on. No nits just kudos. Best always, Lora||2015-10-15 12:12:39|
|DEATH RIDES A PALE HORSE.||kevin Dunn||I enjoyed your well paced/metered penning, your verbiage a delight painting clear images in the mind. I do however have a few small suggestions and mind you they are just suggestions and only in my humble opinion: 2st-L2 I change the word "outlaws" to "four" which would keep your rhyme pattern consistent however you would have to change the word "three" in L4 to "four" so as not to throw off your story line. You'd also have to make that same adjustment through-out where you have stated three (outlaws) In your last stanza, L2= to keep your cadence I would change that line to read "he rode out of town not looking back." Mind you this is just MHO, I did enjoy the poem very much. It is most creative, colorful and a good read. Best to you. Lora||2015-10-13 16:31:42|
|Nature Class||DeniMari Z.||Wow Deni, I really enjoyed this poem, your style is one of my favorites as you well know...good work of letting your breaks do the work of punctuation...bravo. Two small suggestions, just my thoughts--in the sentence "what was imagined as" I'd remove the word as-you want your line to break with a word of impact "imagined" which does that quite well and the other thing would be in the line "and instant lovers will never be understood" I would drop the word "and" and replace it with the word "as"--gives your thought a smoother flow...remember these are just my HO and as always they are yours to use or loose...lovely write. Best always, Lora||2015-10-04 19:28:57|
|Listen||DeniMari Z.||This one is something very different than your usual and I really like it. The flow, the wording, and the depth is phenomenal... a most enjoyable read. There is nothing IMHO that I would change about this... it has that quality to resonate with the spirit within. Bravo, flowers at your feet my dear. Best always, Lora||2015-07-31 16:34:00|
|Assonate||James C. Horak||Ah, so well done as always James. You have such a way with words, their bending, blending and twisting and then you go and start smithing...excellent. You've definitely added some life and color to the fore. Most enjoyable...Lora||2015-07-24 18:38:49|
|When||Joe Gustin||A most enjoyable read, very discriptive with an easy flow. Was a bit puzzled on the "conjurer water" however I took it to mean that of "bringing water forth" which would be in keeping with the previous line. You put a smile on my face, like your wording very much. Thank you for sharing this with us. Lora||2015-07-24 18:31:29|
|Own Your Happiness||DeniMari Z.||Good morning my friend. This is truly an up-beat piece...full of light and brightness. I did stumble a bit with L2 of your first stanza; "it’s the [gracious or graciousness?] from above" though I enjoyed the ease with which your words flowed, your style most interesting and yes it is different for you... :) Best always, L.||2015-03-24 07:35:39|
|Alterations||DeniMari Z.||I can see where you are headed with this. However, I think you could loose some of the little extra words (the, a, that, etc) which are not needed and tighten this up a bit...MHO. Nice flow but thought pattern appears a bit scattered... I definitely can relate since I also haven't been writing much of late, my best to you always.||2015-03-21 09:17:53|
|Sigur Ros||James C. Horak||Your poem is haunting and mirrors the music of which you speak, each in tune with the other. Those spaces in between words/notes seem to speak louder than the objects of their delivery and you have done this so exquisitely... Your offering is a the written music that transcends the senses, bravo--most enjoyable... Thank you for posting...||2015-03-21 09:07:21|
|A Man Eats Chocolate||Joe Gustin||Good evening Joe, wow, a most ambitious work you've given us. I believe if you were to do so, you actually have three poems going here in this one. However, the part that most intrigued me was the last third of your write, from the point of "are you just going to lay there"; if you were to section that out it would be outstanding by itself, just a bit of tweaking... you've broken a code (the choclate lure) the symbolism is excellent--so much said with out speaking out loud... I believe this part of your write is the heart of your poem...while it might seem illusive--it gathers deep within the mind where the reader instinctively knows of what you speak without putting name to it. Thank you for the post, most enjoyable...Lora||2015-01-24 22:56:49|
|What Is||Joe Gustin||Joe you've given us something to ponder in such well chosen few words. So deep a thought, one that expands upon itself... Perhaps the difference is one's perception of "what is" sort of the "eye of the beholder" philosopy... definitely something each will have to discern for themself. Thank you for the brain tickler :), besr always. Lora||2015-01-20 10:00:11|
|The sameness of everyday||Medard Louis Lefevre Jr.||Medard dear friend, your writing style is unique to you and one that is most enjoyable. For this reader, your thoughts and style have always been refreshing and openly honest. You touch the inner regions of thought, those places many refuse to go... thank you for sharing your work. Please note that whenever you have shared your thoughts in a critique they are so very much appreciated...they are like your poetry... real and geniune... best always--Lora||2015-01-18 11:01:18|
|Weird||Medard Louis Lefevre Jr.||Wow, so intense, so poignant and yet it brings this reader to that point that is familiarity of what you have spoken in such a gifted penning of verse. The emotions come through clear, like road maps of life and the questions are like fallen leaves that cause one to ponder--how does this feeling translate to another and yet it's meaning captured. Well thought out, good flow with ease to read and each thought flowing seemlessly into the next. Most enjoyable, nice to see a post from you. Lora||2015-01-18 10:55:05|
|Suitor Seeking Justice||James C. Horak||Excellent structure from choice of verbiage to meter that sweeps the reader through your passages with ease to that final line where one nods head in agreement to the profound message that you've found a way to put words to. Emotions, fickle, fleeting and all too intense at the moment of appearance and yet no other can truly feel the intense prick that the owner does. Truly an exquisite write that reaches to the heart of the reader...bravo my friend, a much-enjoyed read. Lora||2015-01-18 10:38:31|
|I Will Lie||Joe Gustin||So very romantic and sensual, provocative and smooth with great feeling--an ah-ha moment if you will... Very nice. One small suggestion would be to change your use of the word "lie" to "lay" thus keeping the image fresh and pertinent and in perspective. A most enjoyable read. Lors||2014-03-11 11:32:01|
|Incantant||James C. Horak||So good to see this post of yours James. A perfect penning of your accomplished intellect, a view into the mind of the author. How many will read, emphasize for the moment but truly understand the deeper current that runs through. Again your words echo that which you so artistically offer while this reader wonders how many truly hear the whispers of your pen instead of merely feigning interest and appreciation...does make one want to scream and shake them into understanding... Forgive me if I've digressed, I so enjoyed this poem and all its portents...Bravo my friend, well done. Lora||2014-03-05 11:01:16|
|Healing Prayer||DeniMari Z.||Deni, This is such a deep heart felt and reverent write...I totally fell into sync with your emotions and your prayer. Wonderfully worded, what can one say about something on this level but to give you my admiration for voicing this plea so eloquently. Many blessings my friend. Lora||2014-02-19 19:34:22|
|Walking Home||Joe Gustin||Joe I really enjoyed this simple however wistful poem. Your writing stirred many memories for this reader, a most comfortable read and one that lends itself easily to contemplation. I like the way you turned your phrases and see no need for any changes in your write. Lora||2014-02-19 10:23:16|
|SHOCK||Debbie Spicer||Debbie, Yes it has been some time since you posted--while I'm delighted that you have graced us with your words it is with deep sadness and heartfelt compassion that I extend my condolences. Your poem is riveting and speaks to the heart of the reader--we are there sharing the call and the pain--no escape and we grieve with you. God bless and keep you dear one. Lora||2014-02-10 18:21:24|
|The Four Guardians||James C. Horak||Hello James, good to see your work again. We keep saying this over and over and in numerous ways--I don't know how much clearer you can put it out there--no one seems to listen or is it that they just can't comprehend the betrayl. Your poem is hard hitting and so too the point. It does make one wonder that if at the moment hits them in the face if they will understand then--when it is too late, when it can't be stopped or changed. Keep writing--if you reach at least one then you will have made a dent. I applaud you for standing up and speaking out. :) Lora||2013-10-26 13:25:59|
|A Clump of Metal||James C. Horak||Liked your allegories and choice of verbiage. A look into the soul of the author perhaps, or maybe a statement of things to come that we all must face. You give the reader cause to ponder--and then perhaps a chance to sigh. Most enjoyable, good stuff. Lora||2013-10-11 19:52:16|
|Its 7am||Joe Gustin||How very delightful your morning poem is, easy flowing and quite discriptive. I could smell the coffee, feel the liesurely mode and enjoy the view. Thank you for sharing. Lora||2013-10-11 19:48:29|
|Cover of Silence||DeniMari Z.||Short, succinct. Your words leave this reader with that warm awe-- type feeling. A most enjoyable read, thank you. Lora||2013-10-11 19:45:35|
|Unscathed||cheyenne smyth||Wonderful verbiage that paints some awesome mental pictures. Your poem has an easy flow and an enjoyable cantor that carries the ready through pleasantly from start to finish. Most enjoyable, not nits or spags, a red rose for you my friend. Lora||2013-10-11 19:43:02|
|The Book||cheyenne smyth||What a rare and thrilling experience to read about total involvement and then at the same time to become totally involved-- very clever Ms. Chey-- you bring a new twist to the craft. Your word choices and easy flow captivate your reader from the beginning. Most enjoyable... Lora||2013-05-22 20:40:45|
|The Kiss||Joe Gustin||Joe, forgive this late review. I so enjoyed your choice of verbiage and the easy flow of your poem. You've created a delightful moment in time and also given your reader something to ponder...excellent and most enjoyable read. Lora||2013-05-22 14:11:20|
