Reviews for Oil
Isca chapter 1 . 6/10/2010
This is an excellent haiku! I like that "our Gods" suggests a pluralism of religions (and I'm used to seeing poems about Christianity and such; it's a nice change here). 'Where the oil runs deep' sounds like a line that could be from a classic lit. novel (and that's precisely what you want, so kudos). :)

as a Texan, and also as the granddaughter of someone who worked in the oil fields, this caught my eye.

i love the sound of this- i read it aloud, because i believe most poetry is meant to be spoken.

there are a lot of ways to take this- obviously, being Texan, oil means something different to me than it might mean to someone else. i'm curious as to what you felt when you wrote this.

you have a lovely way of stringing words together.

also, thank you for your kind review of nurture.
