Re: “Dust Devil

I loved dust devils, as a kid growing up I remember running to be inside of every dust devil that we saw. Trying to stay inside as long as possible. The one who came out with the most dust on our faces/eyelashes and eyebrows was declared the winner.

Re: “Dust Devil

Nice poem. Three constructive suggestions:

1) "unseen" and "joyously" in the fourth sentence seem redundant.

2) Omit the apostrophe in Catalinas.

3) The poem could be stronger without the last two words.

Just sayin".

This could apply in many jurisdictions.

Re: “Dust Devil

Keep to 70 Words. Not 73. You can easily cut more than 3. Good enough though.

Re: “Dust Devil

Hey Poetry Maven, Super Bowl is an insightful piece, not great but makes you think. Your response, Don't give up your day job?" Really. Is that's the best you got? Not many words on the reasons why you didn't like this persons poem. Can't find the words? There's some good stuff in there. Come on now. No wonder people don't want to submit things and get dismissed like you did. I've heard about you before and this is the way you are not being very professional at all. Maybe you'll like this one:
" Poetry Maven sits in her Haven and eats her curses and blames those with something to say. When along comes a spider and sits down beside her and says," what an awful critique you made today." You can do better, for all of us, please try again.

This is a heartfelt offering of love to the families of those lost, injured, of traumatized on that day we will never forget.

This was absolutely awesome and brought tears to my eyes! This would have been a nice recitation at the memorial...

"Their the dreamscapers that whip my flesh." ?????

dumb as a stump . . . if you're going to "write" in english . . . use the "right" words: "They're" - the . . . whatever in "their" world, . . . and you'll never get "there." g.

Re: “Dust Devil

All there is for us
Infarcted microcosm
A culture pressed between the glass
Of an ancient Alchemist
Someday to be thrown away
A whim
As others passed before.

Re: “Dust Devil

Is it me, or is there a Sons of the Pioneers reference in there?

Re: “Dust Devil

I know what that feels like, as does any animal lover.

One of mankind's greatest curses is the fact that we are doomed to outlive our most beloved nonhuman friends.

Best wishes to you, Julie.

Re: “Dust Devil

Oh, come on...
"Santa Rita's"?

Does anyone even bother to proof this crap, or is it just a matter of stringing enough letters together to fill a space?

I honestly came here looking for a bit of light prose. Instead, I got a headache.

Wasn't there counterfeit money buried under mesquite trees? Fun times.
