Reviews for Dry Grass
YasuRan chapter 1 . 10/12/2010
As always, I like the implications here. The first stanza was lovely and I had to read it three times to let it sink in. Which is never a bad thing, in the case of your verse.

I liked the line 'mimicking their daughters in regression' because of how true it rings. Also, the 'hungry, masculine east' combined with the drought imagery brings on so many potential back stories in my mind. Now that I think about it, 'young mothers sitting alone in the dry grass' makes perfect sense in this context.

Another great job done, Good on you.

Dry grass, interesting...

"young mothers sitting

alone

in the dry grass"

I stared at those nine words for a while thinking about my 21-years-old best friend. She recently emailed me this "I'm pregnant... and alone".

I don't know that much about poetry and how to review it. But I know about feelings. And this poem has shaken my feelings.

Thank you, Juliet
