Reviews for Summer Stagnancy
fantomoftheopera chapter 1 . 1/3/2006
nice, the way you spaced out the words seemed weird at first, but after I read it again, I found that it adds emphasis to what you're trying to describe

You know, i'm glad i clicked on your name; you have something i consider extremely rare on this site, the use of good english.

Its fantastic, i know of only a few authors on here who can actually spell and use words in their correct places and you are a new addition to my list, for this reason i am forced to add you to my favourites list, a coveted spot to be sure!

By the way, i didn't like the way you spaced out some of the words, maybe you think it adds a certain nuance to your writing, personally, i don't, i think it detracts from it, if only marginally.

Excellent imagery.

This one is all so really good. It flows very well.

I like this one a lot. Love the last line. Beautiful word choice. I love your non-rhyming ones. I always liked those kind better.

Lord, this is beautiful. You've caught the summer in just 9 lines, and now these momments truly are eternal. 'That bleed nectar like the summer drips languor' is what I like best. Love.

Stunning, especially the last line. The fact that this doesn't rhyme actually makes it better, it seems to read more fluidly. So beautiful, absolutely. I like the spaces between letters on 'comatose' and 'eternal,' effectively done. Really great poem.

reminds me vaguely of afi's "untitled" just for the vocabulary and the literary phrases. Beautiful and bittersweet.

Hehe, that's exactly how summer smells, too! Someone sees it how I do! Yay! *golden star* But I like how it's so free and non-rhyming. It flows nicely!

the poem had a really slow, languid feel to it.. nice change from all the angsty poems you see around . Beautiful.
Nobody-n-Particular chapter 1 . 6/16/2005
I love the languid feel of the poem, how wonderful. Slow and peaceful, I am at ease.
Leta Lynn chapter 1 . 6/15/2005
I really like this. I particularly like the mixed connotations-bleeding, oppressive, etc all juxtaposed against flowers and baseball games. Very interesting-an appealing blend.

Great job!
