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:

Lavender fields
Infinite

Walking suburbia, alone in reeds
 1
Four summers ago you rented this house
 2
And vanished for 3 months
 3
Leaving me to tend the grounds
 4
Simply things growing
 5
With no order but what we make it
 6
And in reaching to the sky
 7
Your memories fold into one
 8
With beauty gliding through sparks
 9
That shimmer in the open air
 10
Things we all held
 11
When the rain cascaded down
 12
From unseen heights
 13
I sensed a smile from you
 14
Lower this time
 15
And in turning away, she was lost
 16
Melting into the canvas
 17
The light so high this evening
 18
And i wished that i was still in the midst
 19
Of that afternoon
 20
Waiting for you to come back home
 21
