Critique by SB
By your good old editor! Few words about the works of my much cherished authors. So the critiques will be honest, short and sweet!
Poush Sankranti by Labanya: She is so right, I so miss those terribly sweet rosogollas and sandeshes of new molasses. Our health-conscious brethren have ruined Bengali sweets.
Love by Scott Hastie- Priceless poem, it takes you on a deep emotional journey and ends with hope.
Of drum-rolls and Indians 2 by saptarchi: This truly works in India, maybe in world too, people who can manipulate outshine worthy competitors. People who can scream lies silence truth.
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 8: Just loved the way angels were describing human beings to God, their boss. I am really loving these chit chats.
A secret revealed by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Their father should be very happy and proud to have sons like them, not one or two but three sons!
Planet fall by Troy David Loy: Meera, Agni, Tempest and Saru meet each other together. Saru and Meera most probably have already met, so most probably have Tempest and Meera, but this is the first time they are together at one place. What next?
Flight is light… by Dom Collucci: beautiful poem, let your soul lose its weight, take its flight!
Bitter Pill dose 39 by Bitter Pill: Press: Indian mainstream press has sunk so low that it will never regain its respect in the eyes of those who know what press is, and what it is supposed to do!
Lose the load 1 by Brendan: Great introspection on human society. How our lives are in society and how it is bent and transformed in it.
The Tilbaroo station by Pat Ritters 5: Lovely moments of a newly-wed couple’s live who are very much in love.
I believe that will be it for my critique as an editor, you will have to read the rest in Ezine. Of course there is truckloads of more works there!
