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:

I know it's not Winter but...
goeszon

When winter falls upon pens,
 1
writers gaze through
 2
their seasoned glasses
 3
dull of mind and hand
 4
it breaks loose with a shudder,
 5
not a tale to come
 6
when coldness changes
 7
the day and night.
 8
 
 
When writers fail with their pens
 9
and dull light tests their eyes,
 10
it is time to step back
 11
from the seasons glory
 12
rest their pens,
 13
their hearts, stories.
 14
