    Description:
       A pantoum.
    Structure and rhyming pattern are tight, but I feel that some of the lines could be improved.
    Any help appreciated.
    The general theme is memories.

    Moments to ponder existence that was
    Causing to smile or shed a sweet tear
    Flourish in wonder, finding just cause
    Surrendering thought to have it clear
    Causing to smile or shed a sweet tear
    Rising at random, in constant array
    Surrendering thought to have it clear
    Easily found sentiments of yesterday

    Rising at random, in constant array
    Releasing in awe waves of delight
    Easily found sentiments of yesterday
    Shedding all reason to make it right

    Releasing in awe waves of delight
    Flourish in wonder, finding just cause
    Shedding all reason to make it right
    Moments to ponder existence that was

      I thought you had a piece like this posted already...hm?
    At any rate, this form is quite good for your images of memories. I'm not familiar with pantoumes so I cant say if you've stuck to form, but it seems like this structure lets the images speak for themselves more than in the traditional kinda rhyme form.
    I still like 'rising at random, in constant array'.
    Your writing evokes 3-D images, as always.

      Very nice play with phrasing. Fairly simple in thought but complex in scheme. You are another one, like myself, that seems to enjoy playing with words. In this case, its no small task putting together phrases that can interchange without losing meter...you've done a pretty good job of that. I suppose that with repeating phrases each one has the responsibility of being alive and interesting. I'm sure they can be touched up. In order to help or make suggestions on which phrases to alter I'd have to know exactly what you are trying to convey as a whole. Life in general and its constant ups and downs?...the surprises of life/love?..."Moments to ponder existence that was" suggests loss, but the rest of it doesn't grab me as an elegy. Is it?

    I love the idea, but agree that its missing oomph. Something such as this begs for fluid, beautiful lines...a lulling effect if you will. If this is a first draft its a great place to start and a fun project for sure...I'll anticipate the next draft...

      I like this and the way it was written. Although I dont know what the meaning of it is at all. So sorry if I knew what it was about I could try to help you with it. But keep writing and if you could get back to me on the meaning maybe I could help you out.

      hmmm...kinda confusing if read very fast...i like it though, seems that lately I have liked alot of your work. I like the way you repeated:
    Moments to ponder existence that was
    Specially at the end, really brings about a nice, swift ending, leaving the reader to do exatcly as the phrase says...ponder...

      Ah! I love pantoumes. This is the first I have read here at ES. I like this. But I think you need to create a separate stanza starting with "Causing to smile or shed a sweet tear
    Rising at random, in constant array
    Surrendering thought to have it clear
    Easily found sentiments of yesterday". Unless that was just a typing error. I find these to be a challenging exercise, do you?
