Very, very lovely Larry! lovie.gif

Reading this "pretty" poem has me yearning for Spring even more! I gave two Azalea plants, next to my garage. They've been there at least a decade and bloom for a few months -- a pretty deep pinkish tone.

Enjoyed the read, rhythms, colors!

I absolutely love this response, Maureen. I felt a personal connection and that heightened my senses. I love the rhythmic quality of heptameter, even when split.

Take off the mask!

Oh boy! I LOVE this - the image is wonderful (it was my high school mascot)! lovie.gif

I wouldn't change a thing! Perhaps I should try this challenge? I'm so rusty, and dealing with my newly broken leg is taking up most of my thought process at present.

But I did want to comment that I was here - and enjoyed and again - no nits! hsdance.gif

OOOh Larry! claps.gif

I love this! I get very sad when I think of how our young men and women enlist (my man did so many years ago) right out of high school - and then I feel their deeds to protect us (and others in the call of duty) are not acknowledged as they should be! They risk their lives and how do we repay them? Well, I do not want to get into my own thoughts, but let's just say this poem is spot on to reflect my own feelings.

My only nit is in the opening line - the meter (at least how I pronounce) "A man, empty inside" doesn't seem to flow quite as smoothly as the rest.

Enjoyed the read very much! Read.gif

Hi Larry,

Interesting response! I get a sense of a doom boss, lol.
I'm working on getting back into some routine, the new job at Dell is still confusing and fun as I learn new things.
Daniel, sorry that you are having issues. Best to message me or email Peter (Imhotep) at pclark@pclark.com. we would need to know what browser and what buttons or other actions you were doing, and what the error was. As this forum software is out of date, the more details, the better.

Cheers,
Lori

What an interesting response!

I take it this is a young 'rebel' with a cause as MC?

Nice use of the ten words!

Hi Larry, wave.gif

I really enjoyed this poem, and the title is perfect, as I had no idea what was to come. claps.gif

The only stanza I find could be reviewed is below. I suggest a replacement for 'fear' in L4, since that word has been utilized earlier. The other is the phrase, "is no". I can't quite place it, however it seems to bump for me there.

QUOTE
to realize the promise of today
is no assurance of tomorrow’s dawn.
Each colorful façade put on display
may hide the fear that we are just a pawn


Please take or toss my thoughts.

Enjoyed the read!
