My Review of Swiftly, How Swiftly by JohnCreekmore
I think this piece could be interpreted in a few ways, but I perceived it as being about aging, and being grateful for the time we've had. Of course I could be wrong, and as you put Work, for the night cometh, means I probably am. Either way, I do enjoy your poems very much, you have a unique style which I appreciate. Very good poem all the same. so thanks for a good read and a piece to ponder over.

My Review of Sparrow Invader by matelotrod
How very creative and inventive, despite being based on true events. The rhyming and imagery here are very well done, and it holds the readers attention very well. It appears as if the little sparrow amuses and fascinates you as much as irritates you, Very appealing poem, well put together. I certainly enjoyed this one.

My Review of Doing, Having, Being by JohnCreekmore
Overall this is an excellent poem. Very thought provoking and I think when you say, what we seek, we are in your author notes - there's a lot of truth to that. It links in very nicely to the poem, and as always, I enjoyed your piece. Very good indeed.

My Review of Twilight Has Entered My Life by babyboomer68
Very nicely penned. You kept your piece fairly concise, yet still put your feeling across very well. Age is one of those things that is out of our control - we will all get older at some stage, just one of those things. As long as our hearts and minds are in the right place I think that counts for a lot, and I think a good heart deserves a good mind as you seem to have here. Thanks for sharing your enjoyable poem. All the best to you.

My Review of We met! by kitty
I enjoyed this one - A real zip and spark about it. I felt some really good imagery flowing through here, and it certainly felt like a poem that has life and character to it. Very well put together. Thanks for a good read.

My Review of Alcoholic Mystery by matelotrod
This one did humor me I must say. A very nice flow and rhythm to it. I think we are told so many things are bad for us and it's been that way for a good while. Alcohol is in that bracket. I like the way you delivered this from your own angle, in relation to how you deal with what science says, but will still enjoy a drink or three. Good on you, and a highly enjoyable poem.

My Review of Truth by JohnCreekmore
As usual, a piece that's very well put together and speaks much truth. Does the past shape the present and the future? Yes, in many ways it does. Perhaps not entirely, but I agree, it has a strong bearing. I really like this piece. Tidily and compactly composed but with aplomb. Overall, a very strong poem.

My Review of You are in my heart by heartbeats
I think the words here are very heartfelt and genuine, with some well thought out description. I think it would be good to see it written in stanzas, rather than a continual piece. It would be a challenge yes, but one you might take to well, and enjoy doing. All the same, this is well constructed, and full of strong feelings and emotion. All the best to you.

My Review of Uncondition the Condition by PGordonKennedy
Sometimes life can feel like a vicious circle. We try to have the right intentions, and change for the better/be more positive, but it can be easier said than done. I appreciated this piece and the angle it comes from. It's well constructed and written with thought and wisdom in many ways. Credit due for a good poem here.

My Review of DAWN CHORUS by kitty
There hasn't been too many of these kind of pieces lately, so a welcomed one that's for sure. I get the feeling you actually found this one quite enjoyable and.... well, I don't want to say without effort, but I think it came to you quite naturally, and just flowed as you wrote it. Nicely done, and full of good emotion and imagery. Nice bit of spark to this one. Great stuff.

My Review of Old Jars on the Windowsill by babyboomer68
This actually made me think of a song by a band called The Divine Comedy. The lyric is along the lines of 'I see lentils, beans, seaweed and rice, in jars on the windowsill' etc. I'm not saying this poem is about that, but that's what came to mind for some reason. Memories can sometimes become like labels on a jar, still there in some capacity but faded and maybe blurry. I enjoyed reading your poem, and the imagery it conjured up. All the best to you.

My Review of Am I Different? by matelotrod
Well regardless of everything, you still have the knack of producing some fine, fun rhyming pieces of poetry. Life does throw some different and challenging things at us, regardless of age but maybe because of it too. Nice rhyming scheme here, and another enjoyed piece by me.

My Review of A ROAMIN' by kitty
This almost comes across as if it could be song lyrics, but it still works very nicely as a poem. It's fresh and warm to read, and has very good imagery, yet still flows nice and simply as I read through. Highly pleasant, and I agree with seriouspoet - Nice to read something a bit more light-hearted. I certainly enjoyed this one.

My Review of Lupus Fall by chrome
I liked this piece overall. Some parts in particular I can relate to in many ways, and it's quite probable that quite a few can. The stanza that stood out for me was the second one. I think to put this under the general/other category doesn't really do it justice. Perhaps there are a few categories it could fit into, but obviously that would be down to you to choose. It's quite a personal and emotional piece describing the way, you as a human feels deep inside. A very good piece in my opinion, that speaks much truth. All the best to you.

My Review of Church on the Crossroads by Rmoffat449
I found this piece intriguing. I had to look up the word Troubadour if I'm being honest. I feel like the poem had a good flow and was quite matter of fact and honestly written, All in all I enjoyed it and think as a writer you've provided a good piece for the reader. Thanks for sharing this one. All the best.

My Review of Magic by michaelgallatin
Well first off - Prestidigitation. What a word that is to use in a poem. Sleight of hand, and makes me think of the films The Prestige, and Now you see me, for some reason. If there is love between you and your wife, then I hope you can work things out. I liked the layout of this piece. Quite concise overall, but enjoyable and with feeling all the same. A S/L for this one.

My Review of Cloudy Days by babyboomer68
This almost comes across as a Haiku, a form of poetry that I really like actually. A light at the end of a blue, sad beginning. I think many of us can feel down at times, and long for that sunshine to make us joyous. Thanks for sharing your piece. All the best to you.

My Review of Expression by babyboomer68
Nice analogy and there's very good imagery used to create your piece here. Many times we are trying to be creative and original in what we write and that's not an easy thing to do. I enjoyed your poem and found it an interesting angle on how poetry and the expression of poetry comes across and is expressed.

My Review of WHAT IS LOVE? by kitty
Aren't there meant to be four different types of love depending on each situation. One is for a friend, another for a lover, one for family, and one for humankind. Something along those lines anyway. So even though its a four letter word, it can be felt in different ways, and have varying connotations. This is a very pleasant and warm, hearty piece. Intriguing to see your angle on the subject indeed.

My Review of OVERINDULGENCE by kitty
It's very easy to overindulge on certain things - and many of us do. It's a sad world we live in though, where many don't have enough food or water, let alone luxuries that so many take for granted. I suppose each of us can do small things to help to some extent, but the bigger and wider problem is hard to take away because so much corruption exists beyond the existence of a genuine human who wants to make a difference, The world isn't quite fair is it, and that's a real shame for so many, We should certainly try and be grateful for what we do have, especially when we have access to meals, drink, clothing etc. Good poem this, one to get the brain in gear, but a subject that we probably ponder over often enough.

My Review of Technology Nightmare. by matelotrod
I really do believe technology is both a blessing and a curse, and I wouldn't blame anyone for either embracing it, steering well clear of it where possible, or being somewhere in the middle. Mobile phones have taken over the world in many ways. I don't think there's any going back now though unless you're strong minded enough to leave them alone by and large which it seems as though you may well be, so fair play on that front. Another good read. Enjoyable and timely. Topical and thought inducing. Very good.

My Review of Sweet Jesus by michaelgallatin
Intriguing write, as most people would agree that the way killing and murder goes on these days is terrible and wrong, and so often unnecessary. As much as free will might be seen as a gift, I wouldn't say killing is a gift, but alas free will has lead to killing and other unsavoury things occurring. I found this piece thought provoking, which is a good thing. Will the world ever change largely for the better? Who can say for sure? Only time will tell.

My Review of Plastic Abuse. by matelotrod
There's so much plastic everywhere, that even if a very small percentage ends up in the wrong place it will cause problems.sadly, there will be some that just throw bottles etc wherever they feel like. Does make you wonder of the long term effect, or even what effect it's having now. Intriguing write this.

My Review of Teachers by JohnCreekmore
This poem is written and constructed as well as it can be. It's wise in it's words, and makes one stop and think about how having hate for someone can potentially be damaging and unhealthy for the person doing the hating. The whole piece is put together very well, but I particularly like the last line. "All my opponents born anew." Excellent line. I guess in some instances it can be hard not to have hate, but this piece from a certain perspective is very thought provoking.
