Thank you all so much!! Your answers are all thought-provoking. Here are some of my thoughts…
@evelyn Thank you!! That’s one of my favorite images too. :)))
the blankets are
heavy on my chest
heat fuzzes over me
with streaks of color
at the lines
at the forefront
of my mind
but the round browns overwhelm,
puddling through the cracks
the warmth…[Read more]
I’m conducting a survey, and I would appreciate it SO much if you answered these questions:
- Do you believe Christians should read secular literature (literature produced by non-believers)? Why or why not?
- How should a Christian approach reading secular and/or non secular) literature?
- Can (secular and/or non secular) literature be a source…

@joseph_darkgrate I LOVE THAT POEM. The images are perfecttttt. Well done.
@the-fledgling-artist I love the vibes of these poems! <3 Also I think you have natural feel for word choice…very very nice. 🙂
In your future poems, think about experimenting with line-length and flow of the poem, being intentional about the pacing.
When you decide on a rhyme scheme, before you begin the poem, try writing out a bunch of…[Read more]
@libby I don’t write fiction actively, but I read a lot of writing/about writing so that helps my editing skills. I’d be happy to read your work. 🙂
@k-a-grey Aww, thanks! I didn’t know that was you! I appreciate your support. 🙂
@sir-leeds I love your poem!
I do see what Story Ember meant now about the embellishments. You’re not flaunting a bunch of different poetry techniques in this poem (but you do use vivid language). Also, the poem’s character is a child, so there is power in the simplicity of the character’s voice. 🙂
I love the ending lines:
“And the lonely lamp…[Read more]
@k-a-grey Really! I love your poems. I’ll be the first to follow you if you ever do decide to blog! 😉
I don’t know…I only started blogging in May. Something that is important is to make blogger friends. You comment on their posts, they comment on yours, they tag you, you tag them, etc. It helps get your blog out there so people know about…[Read more]

@anne_the_noob14 Thank you!!
@sir-leeds I appreciate your feedback! What I’m actually trying to convey is a process of healing over the course of a year. As the seasons go by (with similar themes in each), the girl becomes more and more reconciled. In that light, what changes to you think should happen? Maybe what’s happening in the last section…[Read more]
I want to enter this poem in the contest. I need your help–please critique, praise, give advice, anything! I want to know if this is bland, if it means something, or if it’s powerful to you. Say anything that it made you think of or made you feel. Is the…[Read more]
@evelyn Our local book/coffee shop has a magnet poetry board hanging on one of the doors inside. People put together lines of poetry from the little magnets and you can be inspired and make your own. It’s really cool.
@e_elaine_soup5 I love the song lyrics one. Sun-split clouds is a great image! The haikus were great too, especially the line “we light stuff on fire.” 😀
THAT IS SO PERFECT. XD I love the perspective… That poem is one of my top favorite funny poems ever written. *double high five*
Do you blog anywhere?? I would love to read more of your poems. I love them!!
