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?

Alive Again
kazfernandes

Today I felt complete and whole
 1
It all became so clear
 2
The sun came out and warmed my soul
 3
It's great to be back here.
 4
 
 
The sun shone bright, and I did too
 5
Both shining, radiant, bright as ever
 6
The grass so green, the sky so blue
 7
The winter of my soul is gone forever.
 8
 
 
A rainbow arched across the sky
 9
Its colours filled my world
 10
Nature's flag is flying high
 11
Its beauty is unfurled.
 12
 
 
I look around, take in the day
 13
For all that it is worth
 14
Filled with joy, I want to say
 15
I love this planet Earth.
 16
 
 
Today I felt alive again
 17
No need to ask me how
 18
Or who, or what, or why, or when
 19
My time is here and now.
