    From the frightening examination of Manson in Mr. Manson (Paranoid Schizophremic with Delusion) on Cocaine- - in which Theodora paints the darkness in which this evil person lived and fed off of- - -to the delicate nature images delivered up in In the Blink of An Eye, poetry lovers will never be disappointed in the range of topic, the depth and breadth of examination, or the extraordinary poetic passages Theo provides. She enchants you with the first words in her poem Growing Up I Recall and then she breaks your heart in One Step Forward-Two Steps Back (Be warned- The pain in these lines is hard to bear.) So be prepared- there are many treasures sprinkled throughout her lovely poems that have been created out of the beauty of her heart and soul- but there are also other poems, deep and complex poems, that deal with pain and darkness- - -this talented poet is no one-trick pony.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed reading Theo's well-written poetry that comes from the heart. She has a nice flow to her writing with a solid (but not overly done) use of rhyme as well as other forms. The subject matter is also quite varied, which I enjoy as a reader. She has a unique and fun grasp of metaphor, imagery, and personification. Thanks for sharing your poetry Theo! :)

    A very good poet. Her pieces flow like prose, with solid narrative plot and themes. Her word choice is curious to me. Not what I would use... a different thinker. The metaphors she uses are generally thematic, rather than propositional.
    I'd like to see a something she considered a challenging piece for her.

    I am the field of blues and purples
    Of lavender and lilac-to violet hue..................
    i am what i am by the blue
    fragrance awes with lavender tone
    yet purple lilac whispers of hue
    love resonates to bloom within
    love is just an art of colors, ingenious write by the imagery,
    10++++

Best Poem of Theodora (Theo) Onken

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed
And the sunrise ever warmed
With its gentle rays dancing across my skin
Giving me hints of a fluffy white cloud or two
Promising an entire new day
Of peace and contentment
A perfect day-this
But for the glaring-almost blindingly-blazing
Absence of you

Read the full of (((After The Rain)))

Sometimespoet'sbleed

Copious amounts of blood flow, nonstop
.....A poet's head is in total disarray- -
Knocked silly against a sharpened "edge"...
...Bringing forth the dawn of day.

Perhaps, it is a spiritual letting
.....Or some divine circumstance employed
That awoke the poet to the "realization"- -
...That sometimes in life there is no joy!
