    Cole commented on the post, Expressing Myself

    Quan,
    I love the rhythm that you have written into this poem. I think a lot of kids who are tossed in to a new school also struggle with finding where they fit in. You make a good point in just finding who you are and being yourself. If you try to change yourself and be like everyone else you are not going to feel comfortable in your own body. If…Read More

    Cole commented on the post, ISO Giovanni

    I love this poem and your choice of adjectives that describe the different elements in a season. My favorite line is “flowers resurrected an animals awaken” it makes me thing of a bear breaking out of its den after a “frigid winter”. Great job!!

  • I agree with you that women should be paid equal to men, not only in the medical field but in any sort of work place. Women are capable of doing the exact thing as men in todays time and age. I find it interesting how women are paid more in the field of radiology compared to men but paid less in other fields. After all of the excruciating work and…Read More

    • Hey Cole! I really enjoyed reading your poem. While looking up at the bear and then continuing to read your poem, I felt like I was watching this encounter in the wild unfold myself! I really like this writing, it’s simple but meaningful. If you ever feel like publishing a poem here’s a website that has more information that you should look into: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/submit

    • Hey Cole,
      I enjoyed your poem. I always love reading poems about nature, especially from perspectives of animals and plants. I think these poems help somewhat connect us to organisms we always see yet not really understand what they go through. I would love to read more poems!

    • This is a really great poem Cole. Very relaxing and vivid. It reminds me of this website (explore.org) that has webcams of bears fishing for salmon in Alaska. Obviously the bears are hibernating right now, but it’s fun to watch in the warmer months. Great work, I look forward to more.

    • Cole,
      This is a very good poem. It really allows me to visualize the picture that you are presenting. It really allowed me to see the bear fishing within the river. This was a very good poem and I think that you have the ability to write a number of more poems as good as this one.
      Good work,
      Zach

    Growing up without a parent’s definitely makes it hard to have a solid base. Parents are there to guide you in the decisions that you are making throughout your life. If someone were to grow up and have no contact or guidance what they do is going to be way different then someone growing in a family. Huck Beinging a white boy at first didn’t…Read More

    Great Post however I agree with Dinakar, throughout the story he is still not wanting to be civilized. What he has grown up around is what he knows. The ending is also him just leaving and again not wanted to be a civil person. He definitely has grown and the way he makes decisions just not the decision that he has made to not be civil.

  • The relationship between him and his father is definitely not a good one. If this were to happen today Huck would have been taken away from his father. This just goes to show the change of time and what was accepted back then vs today.

  • I probably take way too much advantage over my opportunities. In other countries such as Vietnam a lot of the stuff that I do here I wouldn’t be able to do there such as go to school and actually get a valuable education. America is the land of opportunity and that is why people seek refugee here to flee the troubles at home.
