  • Dear: Jillian
    I am satisfied with your poem, “Sonnet 129,” because your poem is really straightforward. One set of line from stanza 2 line 3-6 that stands out for me is, “Each meaning changes the poem in different ways. The idea that a spirits value is based of how shame it creates is very interesting. What creates shame is a very contr…[Read more]

    • I really enjoyed your writing it was very personal and i enjoy that. I understand the feeling of loosing or distancing from a places you love due to reasons. It was very interesting to hear about snow too since iv’e never been in real snow before. thank you for writing this passage i enjoyed it a lot.

    • Dear Angelina, its awesome that you have a place that holds so many memories for you and is so nostalgic. Its also cool to know that i’ve been to that park your talking about, its a couple of stops from my neighborhood.

      I really loved the photo of the sun, being partially blocked the dying branches of the winter tree. It was an extremely interesting photograph.

      Thanks for sharing with us a place that is important to you, because now it’s more important to me.
