    I'm sure I'm being very stupid here, but I don't understand what you mean by the last line...

    Aside from that though, the poem gave me shivers (in a good way) .

    I think you have a talent for almost Gothically atmospheric imagery. You certainly have a gift for flowing language and form. I thought it was beautiful and moving.

  • POEM: The Dreamtime by A.page Montgomery (10/22/2013 4:32:00 AM)

    Do you have aboriginal heritage?

    Having been to Aus I know a bit about Aboriginal culture so I understand what you're getting at here. This is a really beautifully written, insightful poem about what it's like for someone of Aboriginal background to be in the Westernised culture of Australia. At least that was my interpretation.

    The ending is just perfect in my opinion. This is one of the most interesting, original and cliché-free poems in the contest, I'm voting this as 'Excellent' and wish you the best of luck in the competition.

  • POEM: The portrait of the dead wife by Prabha Zacharias (10/21/2013 3:41:00 PM)

    This is beautiful - so compelling to read that you could turn it into a novel. There's something of the magic realism about it, turning ordinary, every day things and people into something which seems somehow magical and poignant. I really liked it and think you did an amazing job with it.

    Best of luck with the contest.
