Sodiq Yusuf's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: De'Ja' Vu? by Robert Wynn (4/25/2012 2:18:00 PM)

    Concise yet compact; succinctly expressed.

  • POEM: Just A Reminder by Robert Wynn (3/28/2012 9:45:00 AM)

    This is a powerful poem carefully encased in a powerfully rhetoric. Enchanting and charming, this poem attempts to capture the emotional essence that often resonates lovers' sameness when they are drowned in the pool of love. What fascinates me most about this poem is the repetition of these three lines: This is JUST A REMINDER -That I truly love you/ That my heart is with you - That I miss you too/ That I truly love you.

    Not only that, the use of rhyme in the poem is apt and very essential to the subject matter which is love. Since love is supposed to be a beautiful experience, a beautifully written poem would not be less appropriate. You are a great poet, Robert. Keep writing.

  • POEM: Because We Feel In Love by Ma.Emmariz Valmorida (3/24/2012 9:31:00 AM)

    I see the hand of a great poet in this piece. You are able to manipulate those few words into what could make a story- for a good story writer though. However, I think your strength lies more in the meaning of this poem than in the form, whereas a poem is a poem simply because it is expressed in a condensed and precise and sweetened language. You've done a great job with the poem, Ma.Emmariz and I got the message; but you don't pay more attention to the style. Remember, what makes a poem beautiful is the how; in fact, it is through the beauty of the how that the meaning is mostly realised. How I wish I could help you refine some lines in this poem of yours. Well, if I had my ways, you might have something like this for the first stanza: Oh! immeasurable happiness!
    If truly love be our aim
    To that special person whom we adore
    Then on our blind date
    Time is as life

    Well, I just want you to know that I'm always sincere with people's works when I help them out. I think I shouldn't have bothered on us. Or should I?
