How wonderful it is to see you wrting something again....It is a awesome piece. Everything ellse has been said...except I didn't nominate it because you are my sister. I nominated it because of the quality of your work :)
I was so excited to have you write for the challenge, and when you sent me this piece, I was excited. I said to Norhan how beautiful I found this poem , and we both agreed it was lovely. Congrats on winning the "dark category" with this poem in the challenge, it was definitly well deserved!
I loved the darkness of this poem and yet it was filled with such innocence.. which provoked the emotion to the reader.. My favorite stanza is of course the first, it really grabbed my attention.
When I read this poem at the start, I wasn't so keen on the repetition of the word "missing" but I read it a second time and it really came together.. and I thought it was a good idea.
I adored the juxtaposition between the beautiful imagery and the dark imagery. It was effective in portraying your attention to the reader.
Overall this poem was gorgeous. Thank you for the lovely read. It is good to see you writing again.
Some wonderful poetry has been on the front page this week.. one of them being yours. I thought you did an awesome job, the flow was perfect. The darkness in this piece was extremely overpowering & you really felt it with each word. The repetition of "missing" was brilliant, all these bright things missing from life really makes the darkness set in. A truly fabulous piece here, really impressive!
