Featured Review

Not sure I am qualified to critique anyone's writing, but I love the colour theme (I'm from the UK, just can't write color!). I think it is a brilliant way of organising the work and conjuring up ideas, although some of the chapters didn't appeal simply because I am not keen on the colour. There are some beautiful lines in there and I like the different poetic styles for different colours.

I thought you were a bit hard on White! My favourite (favorite?) was Orange - I identified with "rhymes that rhyme in the nick of time - and tickle your soul so it can feel a little whole again".

I think these poems are good because they are intriguing and make you want to spend time understanding what they are saying. I need to read them again to really savour (savor?) the meanings and the rhythms. Personally, I preferred the ones with lots of rhyming like Red or Purple, but I am only one person. I liked the fact that some were very short - almost like you were playing with the rhythms between as well as within the chapters.

Sorry for my UK spelling!
