Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

grandchildren playing
coodaygraw

A dreamscape unfolds before you eyes
 1
that wills your heart to quicken
 2
and sends your mind to a region far
 3
where thoughts have no completion
 4
but simply are
 5
and to feel eternity in your soul
 6
and know that you will see it
 7
with conscious mind,and soul so bare
 8
because it was written
 9
in times before,by a man of truth
 10
a man who had the wisdom
 11
i love them all, Jesus said
 12
and so do i, the children
 13
