Stirring the Sky (Book) - 1/20/2004 5:32:07 PM|
Without reading this book, I know it will be a gem, and one to
keep proudly on a reader's shelf. I know this because that is exactly what I am doing with her first book "Sounds of Sylence."
When it is not on my lap, that is.
Congratulations, talented lady!
The Sounds of Sylence (Book) - 10/2/2003 8:39:40 AM
The Sounds of Sylence are heard clearly in the mind if the reader. You are exposed to the depths of every emotions as told and painted by the victim. Clear your mind, and allow Sylence to paint a picture upon the blank canvas in vivid colors and striking beauty. A must read for those who dare to peek into the windows of souls.
Poetry: Art form or private sentiment? (Article) - 3/8/2008 8:42:32 PM
This kind of article is very rare, I think that you did something useful and essential and kept it simple and effective. I also agree with Anna Marie's comments.
Poetry: Art form or private sentiment? (Article) - 10/8/2003 3:55:32 PM
Good article. Well done.
Poetry: Art form or private sentiment? (Article) - 10/8/2003 6:33:17 AM
I have had many of these thoughts myself, and would like to add one
more: I believe poetry to be the most the most succinct form of "story telling." It is often a "capsulizing" of a portion of one's life. A synopsis, done in the most artistic of forms, as entertainment (and motivation at times) for the reader, as well as a refreshing "purge," for the author of the piece.
Nice work, Elflet!

Fire Walk (Poetry) - 3/30/2009 6:34:41 PM
Nice work...your thoughts encompass that search for life encompassed with the richness of its emotional flavor...to live without passion is to not know the heat of fire...

Talented pixie, and love inspired poetess, let me be the first to
welcome you back to the Den after your long absence and busy season
of book-signing and promoting even another new Shadow Poets book.
We missed your lovely verse, and it is good to see you back here!
Best of 2005 to you, and hoping that "John-re" returns soon.
Lost (Poetry) - 10/8/2004 10:20:56 AM

Arctic Tomb (Poetry) - 4/4/2004 4:26:08 PM
Where your heated touch
cannot rouse me. ... may i suggest, "attempts to arouse me" because later on in the poem you requesting to be "waken and shaken" and "without the warmth of your love" ... if he "cannot rouse" you then why are you suggesting he should try ... just a small contradiction of terms ... otherwise, a very powerful poem ...
Arctic Tomb (Poetry) - 4/3/2004 8:48:48 AM
Sylence, I was so glad to see your name in the list this morning, after not being able to connect to the Net for 2 whole days!
There was a statewide Centurytel problem.
Anyway...on your poem...this is priceless. I am listening to an
extremely cold wind outside my window, making my office room feel like what you describe above...but...like you, it can never be as cold a tomb as my heart was made to feel, in my own 'disappointment.'
Arctic Tomb (Poetry) - 4/3/2004 8:40:55 AM
dark and forboding piece, sylence; could feel the chill of the artic as i read this! (i want to go to alaska so bad i can't stand it!)

Arctic Tomb (Poetry) - 4/2/2004 3:54:54 PM
Your image stream is cold, powerful and anguished. Excellent write, Sylence.
Arctic Tomb (Poetry) - 4/2/2004 3:01:10 PM
WOW! image laden write that screams pain and loneliness
your name may be sylence, but not this piece--BRAVA, *STANDING OVATION!* a keeper

Well presented allegory.

Sylence! This is superb in imagery and arousing of thought and emotion. Thank you for this offering. Love and peace to you. Regis
Mosaic Thoughts (Poetry) - 2/8/2004 12:29:57 PM
Wish I could see it with you, Sylence.
It might give ME some answers, too.
You have painted a pretty word scene here!
Speaking to the Sea (Poetry) - 2/8/2004 12:28:09 PM
Almost like a song. It makes me wonder,
as I read it, if we are speaking to the
same ocean, and maybe even the same 'dark
Savior (Poetry) - 1/7/2004 4:45:59 PM
But you've not come to hang in back..
You came along to paint it black.
- Excellent, passionate, uncontrollable poetry - fantastic! I like!
Solitude (Poetry) - 1/7/2004 4:43:18 PM
A lovely woman named "Sylence" - wonderful!
Your father must have been a riot ...
Your poetry is on the mark style wise and flows very well
--- I like the poem itself and the words you chose ...
Solitude (Poetry) - 12/27/2003 10:58:50 PM
Great flow to this and such depth of emotion is evoked by your creation. Thank you for this offering, Sylence. Love and peace, Regis.

Excellant work and expression!
Solitude (Poetry) - 12/5/2003 4:04:19 PM
Great lines and imagery in this write. Very well done, Sylence.
Solitude (Poetry) - 12/5/2003 7:12:46 AM
Poets seem to be prone to wind up
in places "where even sleepy bears won't go."
How we love to hurt ourselves at times.
And there seems to be no end of them, does there?
Good work, Elflet.
Solitude (Poetry) - 12/4/2003 11:42:25 PM

Savior (Poetry) - 11/19/2003 9:49:26 AM
Sylence, Good Luck if the rest is anything like this you've got a winner.
Savior (Poetry) - 11/19/2003 9:24:48 AM
Awesome imagery, Sylence!
Our faults exposed as though we were gowned in cellophane. Thought
there is an advantage in having someone "paint it black," as
you state in your last line,for then no one else can see our
guilty selves, leaving us alone, inside that void, to contemplate
the changes that must be made, for our own good, and that of others.
Erotic (Poetry) - 11/18/2003 8:00:58 PM
A sensually expressed piece in lyrical form. Thank you for sharing. ~Regis~
Erotic (Poetry) - 11/15/2003 1:19:52 PM
Erotica extremely well done. The imagery is what captures my attention.
Erotic (Poetry) - 11/14/2003 5:49:27 AM

Pompeii (Poetry) - 11/2/2003 3:49:35 PM
Stunningly beautiful poem!
Pompeii (Poetry) - 11/1/2003 3:20:29 PM
A superb write, Sylence. I've been to the ruins of Pompei, and I just felt like I was there again. Fascinating topic.
Pompeii (Poetry) - 11/1/2003 11:48:27 AM
How could I possibly do an encore to Keith's grandiose
comments? I must simply nod my head in agreement.
It almost reads as though you were there recently, viewing
the modern day remains, and reminiscing.
Pompeii (Poetry) - 11/1/2003 10:04:21 AM
Oh my... this is.. beyond fantastic.. beyond unbelievable.. beyond anything I have ever read. This is.. perfection. Breathless.. absolutely breathless...
Spring Fever (Poetry) - 11/1/2003 9:58:39 AM
Very descriptive. You painted a picture with words. I can feel your pain. Excellent!

Fantastic write. No holds barred, and aggressive. The way I like them.
Wicked Truth (Poetry) - 10/28/2003 9:18:18 PM
Dayum...so you are the other woman? Poor girl has not a chance with you around. Excellent write, Sylence. The balance of this as well as the flow and rhyme were superb.

Wicked Truth (Poetry) - 10/27/2003 5:40:44 PM

Wicked Truth (Poetry) - 10/27/2003 5:25:22 PM
Another "tell it like it is" masterpiece from
a poetess that can make it palatable.
Spring Fever (Poetry) - 10/23/2003 1:19:06 PM
Excellent work. Very enjoyable.
Spring Fever (Poetry) - 10/23/2003 10:22:10 AM
As the willow bends, so do we poets, to the whims of love.
Sensitively done, Syl, like so many of your other verses.
I, too, wait for Spring.
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/19/2003 7:55:34 AM
Excellent! Your heartache is palpable and real in this.
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/18/2003 6:37:51 PM
This is very heartfelt, for I have been in front of that "glass"... great, emotional write.... stay strong....
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/18/2003 6:12:08 AM
Oh my! Powerful verse of yearning. Peaks one's interest...now I am wondering What is this wall of glass REALLY made of? I liked this one!
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/18/2003 3:24:28 AM
powerful emotional write!!!!
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/17/2003 10:26:19 PM
such sorrow penned in these words,
the heart aches with longing while reading them.
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/17/2003 9:55:01 PM
Forbidden (Poetry) - 10/17/2003 8:39:04 PM
Whatever the barriers, they can be ultimate
agony, can they not?
Well spoken, Elflet Poet.

"Moonlight calling the singing Sun" <- Love that line!
Fire and Ice (Poetry) - 10/14/2003 6:19:17 AM
The kudos will keep coming and coming with beautiful work
like this, my poet friend.
Your words shine like the celestial bodies in your verse.
How well I can relate to what you have portrayed here!!!

Midnight Tryst (Poetry) - 10/5/2003 2:45:50 PM
"consume me, entrance me, make me yours."
ahhhh...breathtaking...my elfin poet friend.
Midnight Tryst (Poetry) - 10/4/2003 7:14:29 PM
The magic of racing hearts in a tryst is the clandestine nature of such a romantic meet. This is akin to stealing kisses in the shadows or making love at ones parents house or planning a getaway for intimate moments. But, of course, I would not know of such things. :) Excellent write.
Midnight Tryst (Poetry) - 10/4/2003 7:12:11 PM
There is no better feeling than holding her hand, and losing track of whose fingers are whose. What a wonderful thing to get lost in.
Elusive Sleep (Poetry) - 10/3/2003 1:43:45 PM
You've captured the very long moments, Sylence, and done it well. I, too, like "...the moon inching its way across the night..."
Elusive Sleep (Poetry) - 10/3/2003 1:02:29 PM
I think I have been there so many times while that same moon creeps slowly across the sky. Excellent work, Sylence.
Elusive Sleep (Poetry) - 10/3/2003 12:19:15 PM
"...the moon is creeping across the sky...I creep slowly along with her,"
lends a feminine touch to the already softly evocative lines.
My Shadow (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 7:13:34 PM
Terrific write, Sylence. Great minds must run in the same channels. I thought I recognized the title. Sure enough, Robert Louis Stevenson in his Children's Garden Book of Verses has the same title listed. His poem is quite different, but modelled on a similar idea. If you're interested here is a link to the poem:
My Shadow (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 6:12:44 PM
Your talent soars..
My Shadow (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 6:10:49 PM
Ohhh...ahhhh...Sylence...the best yet! I echo Mr. Waldman...
it is indeed a brilliant write, succinctly describing what most
of us experience when trying to "escape from ourselves."
Keep on keeping on!
Exhausted Circle (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 12:23:12 PM
Dear little Elflet...
you awake because this is required in order to hear the applause from your fans.
Pain (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 4:43:13 AM
The Elflet does it again! "Your words...each honed to penetrate my shell...schrapnel words that explode under my skin." What imagery! I, too, am glad that I have your poetry book. It has warmed many an evening, and inspired a host of ideas.
Pain (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 4:09:34 AM
Emotionally outstanding write....BHUWAN
Pain (Poetry) - 10/1/2003 8:21:12 PM
Power words. You carve your way across the page with each word. Excellent!
Pain (Poetry) - 10/1/2003 6:28:43 PM
Damn good poem, not too many dare! I love it.
Eye of the Storm (Poetry) - 10/1/2003 2:10:37 PM
I really like the imagery in this piece. Great work!
Eye of the Storm (Poetry) - 10/1/2003 11:59:56 AM
Well if that is your appetizer I can not wait for the main course. This is superbly written, filled with passion, and does not lose it's sense of self within the words. Brilliant!
Eye of the Storm (Poetry) - 10/1/2003 10:02:09 AM
first of all, welcome to author's den--you're here among friends
your debut piece, "eye of the storm," is not a timid work--it roars like thunder
your opening lines, "you came/like a thunderstorm to my world/wild and chaotic..." was superb; it grabbed me, hook line and sinker, and i was rewarded with a vivid, dynamic write. *BRAVA* i'm keeping this beauty to my library!
(((HUGS))) and love,
cannot wait to read more of your work!
