This started so sadly and quickly became so optimistic. It was beautiful - both content and form. Well done!

The image of what has been left behind tolls out like a death nell in this ode. Great weaving of tone and mood!

Great work. I especially love the 5th stanza.

At first I wanted to stop reading but I continued and am glad I did! Nice!

Kenn, this was a very good poem. It was somber, but also uplifting at the same time - what an achievement.

I just wanted to stop by and let you know that you did very well in the Flowers Challenge - although you may not have received an actual award. You ranked 8th in the Level 3 awards, which is very good considering the level of competition in Advanced. You also ranked 16th overall - out of a total of 145 entries. So be encouraged. I'm sure we'll see more wonderful work from you in the future.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)

Ken, I think you've always had the writing gift. This first poem here shows it, but, oh my, how you have sharpened it! I always look forward with great anticipation to your poetry in the challenges.

Thanks for sharing this, Kenn. This still feels like you (even without the rhyme - I noticed it has perfect, or near-perfect, meter.), but this is a classic example of how much your craft has been honed.
