negatvone, Thank you, I knew it was something like that. Huge difference between 3 and 5. My bad about that, its been a little bit since I nominated one. Here I am giving bad info. I am right that poems of the week do not have to have a certain amount of replies though correct? Thanks for piping in ...

Angeleyes, I am sure that nobody is upset with you, I was posting for a little while before I was daring and learned how to nominate for Poem of the Week, or Community favorite. There is a section of forums that is for this, so when you see a poem that you really like, if it is well replied to (I th...

Congrats heinzs and negatvone! I guess I kind of voted in a way if you call nominating one of these poems a vote. (Note here that I like both poems), but I happened to stumble across hienzs's one day while I was digging through the forums. It is a shame that more people are not a little more active ...

Heinzs, This is a beautifully compelling poem, I just had to read it through a couple times! The imageries are sensational, and the read compelling. I love your first line, and your use of visual imagery with color. Lines like The glasses clink and the squirrel stops momentarily in his tracks, then ...

If there are any extra openings when the time comes, I would like to submit work for the Darkside book as well, I like to write dark and have a few things that I can think of that I would submit already, but only if there is any extra space. Thanks! :wink:

Berlie, I love this, a nice little rhyme, but what really stands out to me is that this is something we are all familiar with. We all make this "To Do" list, and then try to abide by it, and it stands out to me that you have quite brilliantly put this into ryhme and made the process of writing a "To...

Gordy, You're very welcome! I always say that if the poet still looks at a poem with such a critical eye then the chances are the poem is yet to be finished, that said I will take a better look at this tomorrow and break it down into a more detailed crit for you. I would do it tonight but I am tired...

The Push

The Push (For my brother David) The day I learn cruelty my brother and I walk through the hot noon sun, our shoes crunching the roadside gravel in unison. It's a strange song, the beat of our feet, and the blare of car horns with their whoosh as they pass on the road to my left. I walk directly in ...

gordy, This poem hardly needs a critique done on it, I think that perhaps you might have posted it in the wrong forum :wink:. j/k! I have read the poem and the other posts a couple of times and it seems the general agreement that this is a very nice write! This is intimate, the joy and love that one...
