    When strings became keys

    I remember my first guitar I remember the feeling of sliding my fingers up and down the fretboard which was homez to six shiny steel strings. I remember the sharpness of those strings, the scratches on my fingers...

    Here are some things about me

    I am from eyeglasses, old cassette tapes and Febreeze. I am from the red monkey bars that were once impossible to reach.  I am from tall buildings that resemble stars when looking down from above. I’m from the sweet, warm smell of...

  • Dear Sara,
    I really enjoyed reading about your feelings during quarantine. I found this poem to be really relatable. A line that stood out to me was “I remember having no motivation to do school work.” This stood out to me because during quarantine I started to fail some of my classes for the same reason, but overall your poem was really good and…Read More

  • Dear Mbathio:

    I am Amazed by your poem, “Along Manhattan Avenue,” because I really like how you’ve incorporated the techniques that you saw from your mentor poem and made it your own. I also like how genuine your poem is.

    One line that stands out for me is, “shining bright through the walls of despair”. I think this line is impactful…Read More

    From Fall To Winter

    The smoke dances out of the grill Waltzing into the charcoal colored sky  Decorated with diamonds that are forever glistening until the sun rises.  The trees form a choir, their soft whispers can be heard from afar.  Humming quietly as they sway side...

    • Dear Angie :
      I am amused by your poem, “From Fall To Winter,” because the words said in the poem make me feel like I’m actually there. It also feels nostalgic.
      One set of lines  that stands out for me is,  “The smoke dances out of the grill, Waltzing into the charcoal-colored sky’
      Decorated with diamonds that are forever glistening until the sun rises”. I think these lines are amusing because I remember going to barbeques at the park and staying there until sundown.
      Another line that stands out for me is,  “The scent of red velvet fills the air as the moon hides behind the porcelain colored clouds and the fireflies greet us from the last of the emerald-colored bushes.
      ”. I think this line fascinating because it shows the beauty of nature and our planet.
      Your poem reminds me of the song “flaming hot Cheetos”  that I once heard. It’s a really good song. The melody gives me a vibe of nature. The vibe of that song makes me feel good and think about life.
      Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next.

When strings became keys

I remember

Here are some things about me

From Fall To Winter

Mood

Knorr uses imagery and personification in the first two lines.

Question

This line gives me a feeling of tranquility.

I like how detailed Knorr's writing is because as I read I can visualize everything that is happening.

Fonny was falsely accused and put in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

I agree

The fact that Tish was willing to sell herself to set Fonny free just shows how much she truly loves him and that she would do anything for him, But if she's pregnant what about the baby?

She is working while pregnant.

Fonny thinks that the lawyer isn't trying hard enough since Fonny is still in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

I agree

I agree

I agree

I'm really glad to see Fonny getting the love and support he needs from his family.

It seems that Tish is dependent on Fonny. She wouldn't be able to handle being without him if he goes to jail.

I'm proud of them and I'm glad they got approval from Joseph (Tish's father).

Agreed. It makes no sense how he said that so quickly and abruptly.

I like how Fonny knows what he wants and even though he may be nervous he is still answering Joseph's questions with absolute certainty.

I agree

Fonny has never loved any other girl the way he loves Tish.

I agree
