    Words of my Sister

    On Monday evenings
    I go out
    into the dark evening
    hair of October.
    I clutch the cell phone,
    trying to squeeze out
    like honey from a lemon
    into my ear.

    The electronic ring
    slinks into my ear canal and
    like a rain wet cat,
    shakes off droplets of sound
    that beat against my ear drum.
    I want to here your voice.

    Sometimes you speak
    with no phone at all,
    just whisper
    a hundred miles away
    and your chin on my shoulder.
    Your wisdom
    slips out
    from between your lips
    as an oak tree drops
    acorns in autumn
    when the crisp leaves
    peel away from the ripe
    blue sky.

    i like how you talk about october and fall.. and i like the way you tell a story with atmispere instead of A's and B's... i dont know i like this is all

      a good write but a little confusing in places
    it sounds like you were trying to incorporate 2 themes into one

    i first thought it was going to be a poem about needless cells
    then it erupted into a love poem
    the ending stanzas were very well written
    i just think like a said the first stanza was a little confusing

    a very good message was let out

    Keep Writing
    It Heals

    Take Care

      I think you have some very good imagination and apply it well in this piece although it does feel a bit forced at times. I feel your emotions and that is important. Spelling is a concern. I believe you meant the evening 'air' of October and 'I want to hear your voice' not 'here'. Aside from that I enjoyed the poem and think you show the ability to write some good stuff. Diamond Dan

      ok the emotion is here I cannot deny that but I would of totally missed out on all that because of the begining. I think this could use some restructuring because the structure really herts the poem. but the emotion is so strong that is has potential to be really good.

    look at it through my eyes I was reading the first bit I hve no Idea what it is about no connection is made still I read on half way through this slow moving( there is nothing wrong with slow moving but slow moving un connecting unintresting uenticeing ) first bit I wanted to stop and just bash the whole thing.
    but I read on the second bit though still not well writen was infused with emotion. so I read on to disapointment . I do think it can be a good poem thou
