Seasonal Reason

Summer
Heat waves, drought, sun
Sirius rises soon

Cool Mornings Like This It's nearly autumn now and mist rises from the lake like wispy memories of summer heat. Geese are gathering ready to make their southern flight; but you have flown northward, back to the sea and your wife and I am left standing alone on the lake shore, feeling your warmth lin...

funky,

Perhaps your piece would look less like a laundry list if you broke it up into strophs. I noticed there were several lines that were related by theme and could be "blocked" off that way. eh?

Nice to see you in the challenges and happy writing.

#2 Mistake on the Lake It's such an improbable match-up, at least in North America, although it may happen daily throughout the dense Asian forests.

I will do a crit for you, however, I would like the crit to reflect an amount of time and concentration that repsepects the effort you have put into the piece. So, patience while I ponder.

Feline Decorating

Newly-painted house,
in summer sunlight,
gleaming white -except-
where mud-blossoms trail
from the front porch ledge,
planted by cat paws.

There's is a full service station in my neighborhood. We never go there because my husband has this rule about different hoses for different grades of gasoline ... but I remember when ALL gas stations were full service and gas was 25 cents/ gallon. Self-serve arrived about the time I started to driv...

Actually I was trying to make the point that line breaks don't just happen. They need to be made for reasons of (1) sense, (2) sound or (3) both. Line can break where one would normally pause for breath when speaking, they can be made to emphasize a word or phrase or they can be made for dramatic ef...
