  • POEM: Remind Me by Nel Omofolarin (7/27/2015 9:29:00 PM)

    unkempt or unkept? ? both good words but not both good here.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Pretty forgetfulness ............ pretty as in quite, OR petty?

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    memoirs or memories?

    Memoir (from French: mémoire: memoria, meaning memory or reminiscence) , is a literary nonfiction genre. More specifically, it is a collection of memories that an individual writes about moments or events, both public or private that took place in the subject's life.
    ==================================
    and again.......... prettier? not sure what you mean by pretty and prettier
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    i especially like these lines:

    So, before living beats of my evanescent heart pale into sober silence
    Kindly indulge me, in a moment of peace ....... though evanescent is another 'new word' to me!

    you have some interesting thoughts here. one or two places are a bit unclear (to me) . you could make this into two or three poems easily, expanding on different aspects of it. but not bad. not bad at all.

    bri :) thanks for sharing.

  • POEM: Doggerel by Nel Omofolarin (7/27/2015 2:37:00 PM)

    dog·ger·el
    ˈdôɡərəl/
    noun
    noun: doggerel

    comic verse composed in irregular rhythm.
    verse or words that are badly written or expressed.
    the last stanza deteriorates into doggerel
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    another new word for me. so NOW i see the poem in a different light and don't feel 'so bad' that i didn't completely get it. and [depending on how much of the above definition(s) apply] this explains the inconsistency i mentioned in my second of 3 comments on this poem.

  • POEM: Doggerel by Nel Omofolarin (7/27/2015 2:32:00 PM)

    Dumb dukes distort dignified doctrines
    Desecrates divinely distinct districts
    Daily decimates definite dashing destinies. .........
    ..................................
    i would think that with dukes (plural) you should follow with desecrate and decimate not desecrates and decimates.
