I like the parallels in the two parts of this poem. The first half made me smile, and the second half made me go "ahhh". Then I read it all over again. I really enjoyed this!

I enjoyed this. Loved the switch from the kid with the skateboard to the kid with the stones. Also, the contrast between deception and truth. Good job.

Blue ribbon writing. I enjoyed this piece as it clearly defines the difference between empty promises and the real deal.

I like the way you compared these two incidences. Really great. I always respect those who can do poetry so well.

Truth wrapped in free verse - one of my favorite forms of creative expression.
Loved it!

How interesting!

Congratulations Winners.
Good Job.
Jim's poem reminds me of ee cummings. He always amused me by his writings.
Eliz has a nice narrative poem - a beautiful story poem. I saw people gathering berries along the walking track at the Civic Center as I was walking. Strange how folk are the same from the eons.

and Melanie has splendidly used the short free verse.

I'm not really good at this but here goes. Good message. There isn't any substitute for Jesus and His cleansing blood. I know it changed me.
I did not understand the phrase: Mind the dog and the kid with the stones. Nice piece. I'm looking forward to reading more. Thanks

From fairy tale princes to the real prince of peace. The Lord really knew what we needed, didn't He? I think you did such a "wonder" filled job showing the vulnerable part of a heart searching for that miracle.
