    Man is like a fraction, the numerator is what he is, and the denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.

    Congratulations, Tanner, on this well deserved honour. You have plenty of true believers in your poetry here at RhymeZone, but it should be much more widely recognised. I hope this honourable mention encourages you to venture farther and look for avenues that will widen your readership.

    Tanner Congratulations on the Honorable Mention my friend! Though I would have preferred to see this as an official winner ... it is a winner of a myriad of accolades in MY book! You know I am a fan of your work!

    I have oft visited this place:
    Amid the pomegranate-coloured rugs piled high...
    longing for the:

    that day!

    Bravo!!

    Powerfully evocative of place in a few deftly handled details. Romantic in the best sense.

    And taken as helpful on my part. I did not mean to diminish your constructive criticism, D.F. Russell. I meant only to say that Samuel is a hard act to follow.

    It would be nice to remembered for centuries, but a day in the sun is also good. I love this, Tanner. Beautiful, exotic images. Thanks for posting.

    Possibly this is a difference in age...

    You have a unique vision and wording; but I think your work would improve substantially, if it were less e e cummings and bit more Strunk & White.

    These days, very few people know who e e cummings is/was, but almost everyone knows Mark Twain. What's below was written by Mr. Clemmens as a eulogy his daughter, Olivia Susan Clemens, and shows why he is remembered.

    Warm summer sun,
    Shine kindly here,
    Warm southern wind,
    Blow softly here.
    Green sod above,
    Lie light, lie light.
    Good night, dear heart,
    Good night, good night.
