  • POEM: Love, Your Piano! by Obinna Kenechukwu Eruchie (10/22/2009 11:17:00 AM)

    Mr. Eruchie,

    This is a fantastic poem. You truly understand the power of music, better than this soul does. A great writer once said that all that is heard in Heaven is music and silence. Your poem embodies this.

    Love,

    Riley King

    Weeping Willow,

    This is wonderful. It IS just like God, and I thank Him after reading this poem for being just like He is. Thank you for this testiment to God's grace.

  • POEM: +Letter to Jesus+++ by Marieta Maglas (8/9/2009 11:53:00 AM)

    Amen and hallelujah, sister. I can just feel your love for the Lord, and I am inspired to draw closer to God because of your example.

    With Love in Christ,

    Aidan (aka Riley King)

    My favorite song would definitely have to be 'Amazing Grace' (John Newton's original lyrics) , but my favorite artists are Billy Joel and Casting Crowns. Billy's albums 'Cold Spring Harbor' and 'Glass Houses' are simply genius.

    Everyone,

    I know everyone's busy, and I know that you all get these messages a thousand tiems a day, but could you perhaps give a critique to my work? I'd be more than happy to do so for anyone who wants it (though most on this site have abilities that far outstrip my own) .

    Out of curiosity, what - if any - main themes or topics do you all write about? I personally focus on human emotion; whether it be concerning another person, themselves, God, etc, but it's always nice to see another perspective.

    Thanks,

    Riley King

    Chloe Young,

    As clichqued as this sounds, it's my only advice: write a poem about having writers block. Give it a hint of frustrated desperation. Maybe even include the repitition, 'words aren't coming, words aren't coming, words aren't coming'. Hope this helps, my dear.
