Daniel Brick's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Loneliness by Rini Shibu (5/26/2017 6:35:00 AM)

    This is a genuine sonnet in its tightly constructed argument and vivid imagery. The absence of rhyme does not concern me because you have other sonnets that are more significant. For example, a VOLTA, or turning in
    lines 6-8, when you change direction and surprise us with new reasoning, that is, a way to transcend loneliness by appreciating the sheer wonder of life, the larger picture rather than just personal pain. It is a
    persuasive argument compressed admirably in a few words. Your sonnet balances intellectual argument and emotional appeal into a convincing whole. It's a great performance! !

  • POEM: Where The Willows by Rebecca Navarre (5/24/2017 11:42:00 PM)

    This is a perfect lyric poem, just a brief vision of the abundance around us if we choose to look with natural eyes and spiritual insight. It doesn't have to be long because the idea is to introduce us to nature and then we go outside and experience it directly. Your poem is thus a prelude to a day in nature.

  • POEM: Time Will Always Recall... by Rebecca Navarre (5/24/2017 11:37:00 PM)

    This deserves your description of spiritual because nothing materialistic intrudes as lovers embrace and no doubt share sweet nothings you are too discreet to share. This is a place apart from the usual stress and storm, but the couple are simply ordinary people who are sincerely committed to love over power or profit or fame. This is a vision of paradise before we return to world fortified by this experience of perfection
