Re: Eternal Peacock

Love the cutting board analogy. It may solve a problem to eliminate the 2 lines Bob suggested and the one about pneumonia. Show us don't tell us. Few things are as personal as cutting boards. I have my mother"s fr9m 40 years ago.

You are on to something strong here.

Not a Poem About Crows

Grandma kept a crow named Herkimer, claimed it told her things. It brought her bits of mirrored glass, brass buttons and once, a three dollar gold piece. But I will not write a poem about crows, not the four and twenty in a pie, not the ones of Van Gogh who pecked the face of sunflowers. Not even th...

Re: The Miracle of Flight

I read this as a first impression piece. I like the skeleton. I also enjoy Dale, the rural settings of your poems.

Re: Nannerl on Wolfi’s Tour Through Italy

Nicely done especially with the firefly metaphor. I would change king and kingdom in last paragraph as redundant Maybe king/land or something
