  • Thanks for reading and your kind feedback Christy. Much appreciated.

  • Thank you for reading and your kind feedback. Much appreciated.

  • Great poem Mark. Thanks for the laugh.

    Look forward to reading more of your haikus next year.

  • Clever haiku with a story that we always hope to hold true. You give food for thought in these few words whether it is the truth and when it might not be.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem Anthea. It leaves me cold – evoking emotion in the reader is always a good thing – and I love the title. It is very apt as the 16 days of activism have just passed.

    Your words are masterful brushes in the painting of this situation and the piece flows well.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem Amana. Yes, the different masks we’ve always worn, now being a physically visible one as well. Good use of the prompt in the two line poetry.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Love your poem Tom. My favourite line:
    As one plus one will slowly glue

    The rhythm and rhyme is beautifully melodic – perfect for the theme of relationships. Your final message echoes similar to my poem in that although joined we are still two.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem Fredre. It describes the job of a parent well.

    I love the rhythm and rhyme of the piece and the images it creates. It makes me think of the overwhelming feeling being a mother sometimes leaves me with and the thought of “I only have two hands” when there are not enough hours in the day and more things to get done than able. But this…[Read more]

  • Love this poem Sara. My favourite:
    until they leave the page
    to become the wings
    on which she flies away.

    The hopes of most poets that their words might be spread to the corners of the world and their name travel with them.

    Your words and ideas flow well and do a great job of describing the creative process and what it holds for the…[Read more]

  • Absolutely beautiful poem Monica. The rhythm and rhyme are lyrical and build to a wonderful end.

    I loved the language you used as it leaned to the feeling of being blessed.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem Francis. My favourite line:
    Perhaps all we can take from the sorry tale is: first do your sums.

    The piece has great rhythm.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Beautiful poem Christy that describes a relationship well. I love the imagery of dancing and a little bit of fencing (A timeless thrust, parry) to tell the story of getting a partnership to work.I’m glad it ends on the happy note of moving in sync.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem.Well done on combining haikus and a sonnet. Focused to follow the wonderful art of creating – lovely take on the prompt.

    May you enjoy taking a few more breaths next year and putting more beautiful words together, to get another badge.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • I love this take on the prompt. I applaud your bravery at doing this format as it must have taken a lot of work to get something meaningful together.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • That is such high praise from you Peggy. Thank you for taking the time to read my writing and your kind feedback. I’m blushing and motivated to continue. Much appreciated.

  • Good poem Becky. I have never played cribbage but it sounds like it could be enjoyable. I liked the way you used the short lines to increase the speed – not sure if the game is fast, but the maths required seems to need to be done quickly.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem for these times Wanda. Although it is lonely, I think two is still better than one. I feel for the people who live on their own but enjoy company. It is not good for mental health to be locked away from human contact and human touch. Zoom is not the same – but imagine if we didn’t have that either.

    Your words paint the picture of gloom…[Read more]

  • Beautiful poem Peggy. Your words flow musically and you pull me on this journey of hope to reality.

    I’m a romantic so your words leave me happy with the ending of something unreachable becoming tangible.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

  • Great poem Jennifer. I know nothing about ice-hockey, but I could feel the admiration seeping from your words that flow beautifully and tell a brave story.

    Your piece has good rhythm and rhyme and is lyrical.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.
