Your symbolism in this free verse is outstanding. This is an awesome poem. I love it.
This was good. The first stanza was irresistible, and the following imagery did not disappoint.
You deftly probe this haunting, daunting concern.
This was amazing...I am blown away. Excellent.
I love the metaphor of the first line -- and the entire poem.
WOW! what an awesome entry.
Great, concrete way to illustrate memory. And this is very well written, but . . . the ending seems hopeless. The dining situation reminds me a little of The Last Supper. I'm not real sharp when it comes to poetry, but is there a connection? I would love to see one worked in.
I don't know a lot about different styles of peotry. But, I do know that I really liked this poem. Great writing!
LauraAnne, I missed this lovely poem with an extended metaphor the first time around, but I'm so glad I found it now! I plan to feature it for the Front Page Showcase for the week of November 17. Look for it on the FaithWriters Home page, and congratulations!
Laura Anne -- I was trying to pick out a favorite part, but every word choice is so perfect. Your ending is so emotional. Beautiful writing. Congrats on being the FW Front Page Showcase author!
