In my poem “A game- A fall” I portrayed the situation of a friend in front of temptation- and what was the latter....
In my work “Manhood” I relate the reality of being a “man” or let me say the 'part of man's growing”.
And in your poem “Sanctuary” some of the words (elements of imagery) presents the truth of many things that would occur to “mans” life...the sanctuary of health, sickness in a deep sense of the word. And of course all sort of things we are frown to fall or to rise.
Dear poet, your poem is one of the best...keep the legacy of poetry.
Note: take yout time to read my poems I mentioned above. Thank you
Great job! It told so many stories with so few words. I love how it is descriptive enough that to tell the story and it's lack of detail really sets the imagination free. You created this poem flawlessly. I can hardly believe that sure a short poem could inspire me this much. Thank you so much for asking me to read your poem. I love it.
Baffling! I taught modern & contemporary poetry 61-74, was poet-in-residence at two universities, and published about a 100 poems during that period. I valued the Confessional School of poetry especially, and poems whose MEANING was clear, poems about something, something one could relate to. I don't value vagueness in poetry. Also, 'blood sweat & tears' is a tad trite, is it not? But, we don't all like the same kind of poetry.
