    • Dear Zoe,

      I am excited about your poem because you have used specific details to capture your identity and roots and a way that I, the reader, can visualize. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “From the glistening eyes identical to my fathers flush with matching ferns in the backyard” I think this is great because you juxtapose your features and your father’s with the ferns in your yard. Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are a skilled writer!

    Gardens with grey tree frogs are croaking my name,

    I let their midnight chorus soothe me,

    The song that has always been outside the foggy window.

    • Zoe- This is a beautiful poem, great job! I really enjoyed reading this, and I’m not super into poetry, but this one was really captivating to read. You did a great job with imagery, and gave the reader a great sense of what you are imagining. Also your metaphors were awesome, I especially liked the one “have you heard the buzz in your ear of another life passing by yours.” It made me think of how we are surrounded by others all the time, but sometimes don’t see them fully.
