About Me: [edited November 1,2014]

PH seems to leave the apostrophes out of my bio, so i have replaced them; maybe they will stick now? I think one of my high school English teachers gave me the only D I ever got on a postcard [gee, over a year after writing this bio i went to edit it and found that i wrote postcard instead of the correct word(s) : 'report card'; i guess that is ... more »

    Bri is perhaps the most vibrant presence now on poem hunter. His humorous writings stand apart. I don't think any other poet here would venture to handle themes the way he does. Also I wonder if any one else is capable of writing in the same style. Sometimes his poems tend to be a little bawdy. Still there is a lot of wisdom in his humour. His comments on others' poems are lessons in Semantics, grammar and spelling. No mistake escapes his x-ray eyes! However his corrective lessons make us a little more cautious. I wish this 'young man' lots of luck and a fruitful poetic career!

    I apologize for taking two years to get around to reading your comment on When Nature Resounds. But your comment caught my interest and made me try out your suggestions- but not the one about the Shapely Damsel in the Floral Pattern Dress, she stays! Thanks.

    My Vote of Thanks!

    Dear Bri Edwards,

    I feel honored that you gave your precious time for evaluating My Scattered Thoughts series, I really treasure your time and substantial contribution according to which I'll edit my poems, and it is something I cannot reciprocate... or express my gratitude...There are many things we ignore simply or do not focus on punctuation and Grammar, and call it just a language barrier. Today I received your critique on Scattered Thoughts i, (and no.X already discussed) ...and I am enlightened about every point you discussed there. Your presence on the site is of substantial value for all of us...

    thank you so much...

    regards,
    Shahzia

    Bri Edwards: I have alwas wondered how people are gifted with the talent of humor. Now, I have intentionally left the letter 'y' in always and I know if I did not tell that now, he'd correct me! An amazing poet Mr Bri Edwards and his level of crirical apprecition (darn! 'appreciation') with a pinch of humor is always great to look forward. A grammer (or grammar?) and spelling artist, he easily guides the poets for rectifying their mistakes and helps them to improve their work. I wish him all the success!

When I were schooled english wernt my thing.
