A Lucky Poodle
rheaume76 said:

Great job. Please keep writing, just please try to assure accuracy by doing fact-checking in the future. Inaccuracy pulls readers like me out of the experience. The reason I say this is because poodles are well-known and beloved for being one of the few non-shedding dog breeds, so it doesn\'t make sense that her poodle would be shedding all over her. I know because I have had a standard poodle for a decade. I also know toy and miniature poodle owners. Keep writing, though! I don\'t mean to discourage you. I mean this constructively. All the best!

I think some people look in a mirror to try very hard to love something about themselves.

loved the transitive nature of this write . From the young child\'s enjoyment to the elder child\'s reflections and enjoyment of memories...another well thought out provoking poem

I say \'you are a poet\"
(might be some typos here the word day (twice) possibly hit the wrong key? I suspect you meant to type \'say\'

What a profound write! Would we shatter into a million pieces or would we remain strong? I really like this!

Observations of reality are often not articulated - well observed - great little piece of work.

Just looked through your portfolio and there are some great writes - loads of talent - carry on writing and posting.

I doubt it, more likely you\'re getting ready to become a poet of note. If you don\'t hear things in your head how can you write them later? Short, but to the point. Joe

Torture~An Attempted Sonnet

WELL DONE SHADOW ~ This is a Sonnet ! I teach the FORM & FUNCTION of Poetry to Adults and they often ask \"What is a Sonnet\". There are certain basic criteria most of which you fulfil !
1. It must have exactly 14 lines !
2. Rhyme Pattern: There are a variety of Rhyme Patterns (check in Google) or it can be Blank Verse ~ Each line has the same number of syllables. In your Poem 5 lines (3 4 5 8 & 12) have IAMBIC PENTAMETER (10 syllables in each line) the other lines are close and could easily be tweaked to be IP ! It can also be FREE VERSE (No Rhyme & No Rhythm) ! Shakespeare is easy to read and recite because it is BLANK VERSE (I am a Performance Poet) which gives it RHTHYM (one of the criteria of good poetry !) and RECITABILITY ! Poetry is an ORAL ART !
3. Versification: There are generally counter themes in sonnets. THEME ONE ~ Torture ~ ends at line 8 which is effectively the end of verse ONE ~ THEME TWO (Verse two) ~ Secrets ~ begins at line 9 ~ so it is an 8 ~ 6 Sonnet !
I liked the themes of your \"SONNET\" ~ Hundreds of People are subject to Torture & Interrogation every day ~ so it is an \"interesting\" topic to choose ! Thanks for sharing ~ Yours BRIAN

Thanks SHADOW ~ Lovely poem that brought back many memories of \"Playgrounds in the SUN\" In the UK we have excellent Playgrounds in all our Primary Schools ~ Villages and Parks with swings and slides etc. In our Secondary Schools we have Playing Fields and Tennis Courts etc ! I love CANADA and the Canadians ~ you have so much space ! I have visited Vancouver ~ Jasper ~ Banf ~ Calgary also Niagara (Horseshoe Falls) and Toronto also Grand Manan Island ! At night I always have hot milk with Canadian Maple Syrup ~ beautiful ~ The structure of your poem was excellent ! Yours Brian (UK)
