Plinky chapter 1 . 6/17/2006
I like the short version better, I think, although the longer one is beautiful too, the shoter one just made me smile.

Both beautiful poems though. :D

I wish I had something more to say than: It's really beautiful. But I don't, so, I'll leave it at that.

It's really beautiful. _ The abstractism is there, but gentle enough not to jar the reader. I commend it highly.

I like this.. the water fish thing is very unique and awesomely written
Chandra-Moon chapter 2 . 3/18/2006
This is truly amazing. The beginning especially is one of those rare poems that makes no sense and perfect sense all at the same time. At the end, I thought the poem got a bit rambling (probably from the stanza beginning with "I left you whole" on). It wasn't bad writing, but it was different from the beginning, where every line was sharp and fresh in your mind. It just got less interesting.

"When skies were wet with stars." What a beautiful image.

Wow, I agree, what a wonderful idea and image. Beautiful.

"when the sky/ was wet with stars" I like that. It could be a reflection, or a painting. Or a person, lost in a crowd of millions who seem to know where they are.

The sky and a fish. Two objsects that seem not to relate, but do. It leaves one to wonder.

while sitting on a barstool/ and old man slipped me the joker/ though I wasn't playing cards. for some reason, this reminded me of that. you need to write it into a massive saga.. so fun. me and a friend wrote 4 pages about a green beaver and his mushrooms once.

This is different, short but sweet. I'm not much for short poetry, but this captured me. Very nice, the fish, well it was different. It fit though, very good!
