  • POEM: Fighting The Fight by Craig Mize (12/27/2011 7:18:00 PM)

    This is nothing personal and derogatory, Craig, but Fighting the Fight is NOT good poetry. Pay no mind to comments like those from Darkangel Flyfree who took your poem real personal! Crimson Love says every line was thought out, well and good and all that, but it takes more than that to compose a decent poem that you can stand by and proclaim it as a poem. To put the matter honestly, you have to work on imagery and all the rest of the skills associated with writing of any kind, but especially verse.

  • POEM: Love by Sarah Flower Adams (12/26/2011 11:28:00 AM)

    On a second or third reading of the poem Love by Flower Adams and another perusal of comments by PH readers, I think most of us by and large missed the import (especially old E.S!) in the first line. The speaker addresses Love and makes the remark that in the end, when all is said and done, we mortals began as specks of dust and will in time be returned to that state The reader is admonished to look in the grave to see thine immortality! The resurrection? I don't think so. Depending on long the remains have been interred, the only trace
    of what was once a living being is a heap of bones or dust in piles..

  • POEM: Unified Understanding by Lawrence S. Pertillar (12/23/2011 12:55:00 PM)

    A whole lot of double talk obscured by a humdrum style in addition!
