My name is Luis A. Estable and I can speak three languages: Spanish, my native tongue, English: my poetic tongue, and some French: my university tongue. In addition, I have been a poet for more than twenty years, and I write poems in several forms: sonnets, songs, haikus, children's verse, free style poetry and more. I have published two books of poetry: "Eighty-Three Sonnets, Book One," and my latest "31 felt poems for my sweet Sherri." The two available on Amazon books. To me poetry represents the most compact and most beautiful expression known to man and my advice to young poets is to try to see when they pen the difference between poetry and prose. Good poetry is never prose writing. If one keeps that in mind, he or she has a good chance of being or becoming an excellent poet or one of some good or great statue.

Sonnet 62

My excuses to the rose I don't behold.
"My pardon me," the sun I hate when shines.
But I'm in gladness active not and cold.
My zero love in life my soul quite whines.
Forgive me words to moon I much dislike.
Please, understand, you bird, your...

Sonnet # 66

How proud would roses be if feelings born!
To see that to the nose they're pure delight.
And often women's hair they do adorn.
And human eyes agree they do spring light.
The rain could talk, what, people, would it say?
To think it wet the...

Sweet Scene

A zephyr came and moved her hair.
How beautiful she looked!
Some locks covering her face,
Her beauty even more,
And I amazed did...

Sonnet # 58

In poetry beauty and the meaning deep.
The bird that sings; it's spring and roses are.
The peaceful look of children when they sleep.
And when high in the sky we see that star.
The sweetness of a kiss when one's in love.
The woman's tears when...

It Was

It was with love and care, indeed,
That God did make the woman-soul.
And when he saw such gorgeous form,
He was so glad He played a role.

That's why her voice delightful sound
And her behold such tender look.
Oh, pretty hands and pretty...

The four-line stanza goes quite well with the rhyming couplet and there is a good abundance of poetic verses in this. but the real cause of the whole situation is not exposed in the poem as far as one can easily tell, but the poem as a whole is good and deserves its wining status.
Good read!

We do not know why this person soon will be gone. But only the attitude before it. It makes one questions this, will you go with a frown or with a smile so to speak. It is an excellent poem with many good things such as the rhyme-scheme and the situation it raises. One can see why it was chosen as the winner and well-deserved.

The question here, and it is a good one, can that magic come true? As when one says that a picture is worth one thousand words. But it is true that at times verbal expressions do not do the trick and silence can speak louder than words such as a smile, a hug or as in the thing in question in this good poem: a flower.
Your poem opens a huge conversation on the matter and one can clearly see why is was chosen as the month winner.

It is not clear if the situation here if for going from youth and beauty to ugliness and old age or if the cause of all this is something else or both, but the picture the poem paints is pitiful and sad.
A poem that has its moments of a situation gone bad and that could be the main reason for the selection.

The poem does not tell what she died of, but the grief he feels is unmistaken. One can see the pain of losing a loved one such as a dear wife. One thing, there are some weak lines in the poem. It would take so much time to go into them here, but the poem has its moments of good poetic expressions through sorrowful words.
One can see what this poem was voted a winner.

This is not bad. One thing to notice: at times the voice of the poem blames himself or herself for the situation and at other times gives it hope. But one thing is for sure, no one should blame himself for depression; it is the silent killer and many times the person cannot help it and needs medical aid or care.
Congratulations on being selected poem of the mind. One can see why. This poem touches on a very delicate situation or illness: depression.

This paints not a pleasant situation, but it is in terms with the broad rather than with the specific. It does not tell the place, the people or why it is that way, the picture painted in the poem, but the poem is not a bad one; it has merit as poetic expression and deserves reading.
