I didn't exactly understand it. (My mind is so uncomprehensive. O.o) But I LOVED it!
cafebrulot chapter 1 . 8/10/2002
I like it :D... Who cares if it rhymes or not? Poetry doesn't have to rhyme or follow a form at all... I don't get why the Ismini person says that... They have a right to not like it.. but just cuz it doesn't rhyme... oh well

Anyway... _Very_ good poem. I could actually understand what it was about! Yay! :D

You write well...and about now, I'm wishing you went to my school... being on the literary journal staff there has given me a real appreciation for well written, non cliche poetry.

Ah, the joys of freeverse. The ability to be direct and clean and straightforward. I find that most rhyming poems annoy me and lose me in overly peppy beats. I only write rhyming poetry when something gets stuck in my head and I have no choice but to write it down. Anyway, I really enjoyed this. It's powerful in its directness and closes with a simple but profound summing-up. My vessel has been satisfyingly added to _.

It's lovely, Rb, and so true. I especially like the last verse. The way the words just flowed, and the meaning of the poem is so amazing.
Flower Cannon chapter 1 . 7/6/2001
It's really insightful. Deep - I like the metaphor of a soul and a vessel. Very gorgeous - One of the few originals I get off my butt and read. ;; ~flo

wow, thats so good! I liked the way it shows that things have their uses if you just look a little closer. generally I like free-verse poems a lot better than some rhyming ones because they are usually more raw emotions, you don't have to worry about rhyming messing up what you wanted to say ;)
Taze chapter 1 . 7/6/2001
It's pretty :). And has nice symbolism. And you *are* working on that other story you mentioned in your column, aren't you? :)
