Allie, the third line is a bit off the iambic pentameter, but I would grant you poetic license on that one. But... on the last line, you are two syllables too long. I think 'mosaic' is actually 3, so... if you drop the 'A' at the beginning of the last line, you can take poetic license on mosaic, and speak it's shortenend "mosa'c" - two-syllable form, then you have a virtual iambic pentameter. Sorry for being a stickler. Still, all in all, a beautiful tribute to the generations that make a family a "family." -- Jeff

Powerful write my friend...penned well and truth spoken from the heart. Sad but true, the same pattern seems to be happening here as well, it is constantly on the news! So sad, when I was in high school, I'll never forget three of my friends were killed in a car wreck, no drinking, just a costly mistake made by the driver. It was the first real tragedy that I recall and one of the worst for many, but it seems that it was the beginning of many to come, it's not so uncommon anymore. Great write, penned well and full of compassion for our fellowman.

Touching to the bone,

Such a sad offering. The loss of a child is something so tragic and making sense of it all is so futile. Your poem touches the heart deeply. We can go through life punishing ourselves with what ifs but the what ifs are always after thoughts and serve no purpose and allow no closure.

Wow... this is the kind of longing and yearning that hits in the gut. I especially love the touch of the dog - that really, ahem, gets me. -- Jeff

Allie, this is an amazing well written and emotional poem.
The Ache That Is You (Poetry) - 12/17/2006 4:51:38 PM
This is painfully paralyzing, Allie. It is hard to know if it was a death or someone who just suddenly, without any prior warning, walked out of her life. Locked in a vacuum and incapable of forward motion, she is tossing and turning in a dream that has no end. Fantastic offering!

A good description of what it is all about. I agree with Brittany, however, add a little more flavoring.
Soulmates (Poetry) - 11/13/2006 10:31:43 AM
You could really soar with this one if you added more, or edited it with more analogies; more magic. It's got such great potential, I can already see the potential spell it's putting on people!
Soulmates (Poetry) - 11/13/2006 6:24:46 AM
Brief and wonderful.

Romance is a virtue..and you capture it in living words..

Shocking end, actually. I liked this. Reminds me of Norah Jones.... I say this because Norah is so different, yet feeds still right into originality and classical (for her genre). I say this with you as well. Great poem.

Ditto the welcome to the den. Enjoyed your writing, looking forward to more.
Unnamed (Poetry) - 11/7/2006 2:45:23 PM
I would like to take the time to welcome you to the den...your write was very descriptive, you transported me to the bar with you. I felt as though I were standing inside the crowded structure watching. I could smell the cigars and hear the music...my friend you have given the readers a great work to read. Again, welcome to the den and I look forward to reading more.

A riveting piece of flash fiction. Gotta love your mysterious admirer. And like Hitchcock ... you left much to the imagination. That I like! Welcome to Authors Den!
Light and Wisdom ...

I loved every word -- so very descriptive. I could "see" and "smell" the bar and I got goosebumps when I read the final lines. Excellent.
