Second Step Down from the Porch (Short Story) - 11/17/2009 11:01:05 PM
Promising. However, you confused me at the beginning. I look for consistent POV with the opening hook. Switching from the porch battered by the elements, to inside, and then back to character outside left me out of focus. Person outside couldn't see inside. I noticed you must have journalistic background to drop the commas before the "and." I've done the same. Strict literary types at publishing houses frown. You might wish to reconsider.

Good story; well done!

moth wing (Poetry) - 3/23/2014 6:27:22 PM
Transformative and delicate to the human spirit as we know it. I liked reading this chosen poetry because it is inspiring to my own nature of sensibilities, Jeanne Rene. This piece has a prophetic slant to an imprint that was left behind long hits me as timeless and hints of future destiny especially your last paragraph, but this is the line that I see metaphorically transcends the title 'moth wing.' It's deep and ancient... "I absolve all remorse sip the nectar," Warmly, Sage "of immutable destiny,"

Your verses are a powerful reminder of an ageless and timeless theme (sadly) of this life/world, Jeanne. Thank you for sharing. Love, peace, and best wishes to you, Regis

So poignant I started to cry. Each generation they go off to war. Still thinking of their endless youth and invincibility. Each generation there is less need to go, but they go still. Ron

until ... somewhere in country (Poetry) - 3/22/2014 5:36:07 AM
A truly sentimental write to treasure! War buddies seems to always stand shoulders to shoulders while taking photographs, and also with outstretched arms on each others shoulders. It is probably because they feel close to each other, and that they place their trust in each other for their safety during wars. They are buddies!! Sandie :o)

Excellent points made with this poem. However, the most beautiful women can become ugly the moment the open their mouths. Then again the same goes for the plain or ugly duckling. If she speaks with a smile and a caring heart men will love her right from the start. Amen!

powerfully moving poem ... please check out "Another Mother's Son"

For a Moment Unforgivable (Poetry) - 2/25/2014 11:54:06 AM
This affects me almost more than all the newsreels or newspaper articles ever could, Jeanne. Personally, I have little contact with those who go off to war but you have taken me right into the most intimate place of sacrifice and loss. It's impact is immense and deeply moving. It reminds me of another poem which was written many years ago here by Jude Forese: Another Mother's Son. Again, it's the sensory details of scent that make that acute connection with mind and emotion. Thank you so much for sharing and may your son come home to you safely. Kate xx

For a Moment Unforgivable (Poetry) - 2/25/2014 8:32:08 AM
You have told the story of many wives and mothers whose sons and husbands have gone off to war with no guarantee of ever coming back. I do hope this is just your muse working like mine often does and not your personal experience. Ron

Wow!! This is so gut-wrenching and heartfelt. Being a mother too I can feel the longings in your words. Sandie

A poetic heartbreaker. Yes, I know what it's like to be away from home. Spent 24 years in the USAF and the first four years were terribly lonely at times. Unbelievably lonely... Amen

For some it is the solution to the agony they experience. The descriptions are riveting and clearly lay out what happened and why. Exceptional poetry. Ron

flexing to the third finger salute (Poetry) - 7/15/2008 7:46:48 PM
Very evokative...although when I first read this, I thought it was speaking of a male, it could easily be about a female as well. There is a lot of gender overlap these days. Jesus wept at Lazarus' death and He was a perfect specimen of ideal masculinity, yet He compared His weeping over Jerusalem's rejection as like a hen wanting to gather her chicks. Very moving, thought-provoking write. -Zach

The Light of the Moon (Poetry) - 7/15/2008 7:32:58 PM
Enjoyed the sounds and life in this poem. You have a way of writing beneath the surface appearance of everyday life and making it come alive. Excellent write, -Zach

Hi Jeanne, This is the first time I've read something you have writen and found your style vivid...In my minds eye- I could see the story unfolding around me, could feel it with each fresh line. I'm looking forward now to reading more! In Christ, zach

I admire your incredible talent, Jeanne. Everything about this poem overwhelms me. Perhaps blinded by the sun, my interpretation of the poem may be faulty, but not my admiration for the art in the writing of the poem. Thanks. -gene.

lovie (Poetry) - 6/29/2008 2:50:14 PM
A poem truly worthy of more than a single reading; it brings many thoughts and feelings to "the surface." Thank you for sharing your talent, Jeanne René. Love and best wishes, Regis

So good a write, I liked the ending, daylight always is better for me than night.

The Light of the Moon (Poetry) - 6/26/2008 4:59:20 PM
Profoundly tantalizing imagery. To understand each moment to its fullest, to embrace the seconds of living as if they were the last, to be able to paint those feelings on a canvas with words and touch the hearts of those willing, still, in my opinion, remains the highest form of artistic intimacy. Delightfully rendered Ms. Watson! Light and Wisdom ...

The Last Sip (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 12:27:36 PM
Words so profound but worth reading anyway.

Stuck on words for this one but I do think it is a good one.

Finding Our Horizon (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 12:25:10 PM
Rock of Ages, this is just what the poem broght to me. How wonderful it would be if all could get along together, support each other, stop lying to one another and give to those in need when we have more than enough etc. Stop being stingy and walk in the sand and think what you can do to help others.

flexing to the third finger salute (Poetry) - 5/14/2008 7:21:20 PM
Why didn't I see this piece before? This is so good Jeanne, so precise. Those last lines couldn't be more effective at the end of such a painfully true depiction of "male insanity". Axilea

"tears ducts cemented with attitudinal mythologies" Best line that I've read in a while jeannerene'. Humanity certainly is multi-faceted, especially in the way it expresses itself when disgruntled and out of sorts. Your poem seethes with emotion, and effectively paints a moment that everyone can relate too.

flexing to the third finger salute (Poetry) - 2/25/2008 3:26:12 AM
Jeanne René Watson, Amazing pen my friend. I wonder just how many men could suck it up and be a woman. It takes a sensitive and beautiful person to be one. Just think, that macho exterior may only be a cover-up. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.

flexing to the third finger salute (Poetry) - 2/25/2008 2:01:22 AM
I have to say I agree with Karla...WOW! Powerful writing. "frustrations dribbling down your chin," my favorite line.

flexing to the third finger salute (Poetry) - 2/24/2008 7:45:11 PM
Reminds me strongly of an incident with my nephew-- he was bawling because his sister got to "do everything, 'cause she's a girl... and I don't get to do anything, 'cause I'm a boy!" to which his dad put his hand on my nephew's shoulder and said, "Buck up, Boy. At least you're a boob!" They may give us a hard time, but a good tearing-up is healthy for you. --Charlie

I LOVE the last two stanzas! I can hear the cries haunting me. This is just... beautiful doesn't quite describe it, but awe-inspiring maybe. So much to digest from this poem and to try to contain the pain. Cryssa

jeanne rené, Somewheres there's a song in that whistle and hopefully a gait to match. Your poem flows so perfectly and sure pleasure to read. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.

the whistle (Poetry) - 2/13/2008 5:20:03 PM
Sshhh! I'm still listening to my walls. They hold a little of the old tunes too. My great grandfather came to America with few posessions, one of them being a tin whistle from the "old country". He was quite good with it. My mother would always hum those old tunes, doodle-y-dooing them as she bounced us on her knee, washed dishes, prepared meals, knitted, bounced our babies on her knees... .. . The ghost notes evaporate in and out of walls where she lived and visited. There's something holding about those old tunes. There tuly is. I'm glad to see them eulogized. --Charlie

Still with Life (Poetry) - 1/8/2008 10:24:19 PM
I adore the reitterating in this piece. You repeat sounds, images, and lead-in's, and it makes music. I like how your lines, though seemingly dis-jointed, fit together smoothly. There are no colorless words. They all have deep meaning and visuals. --Charlie

Still with Life (Poetry) - 1/8/2008 8:28:22 PM
Very passionate feelings contemplating the beauty outside. Splendid description of a spider web. Some lovely allitterations. Well done. Axilea

Conversations with Self-Portrait (Poetry) - 1/5/2008 11:31:47 PM
Extraordinary rhythm in this poem, enhanced by alliterations and subtle evolutions of sounds and clever repetitions. Full of contrasts in content too, where confrontation gives a certain dynamic through your dialog with the portrait. By all means full of energy and creativity, to tell the reader about creativity. Greetings, Axilea

I loved reading and comparing your original to your final draft. I see how you choose your words carefull, extracting all the color and meaning you can from each line. Your final lost nothing, but is fuller and richer, and dripping with colorful, virgin expressions. --Charlie

I like the image of 'low-watt dreams'. Good metaphor. An enjoyable narrative poem.

Unmerciful, Because We Loved (Poetry) - 12/2/2007 1:18:36 AM
Magnificent poetry Jeanne, once again I feel the intensity of your unique, very personal imagery. I love the details that come adding sudden realism in your poetic wor(l)ds. Until the changes of rhythm and revelation of emotions at the end. I really loved it. Axilea

Unmerciful, Because We Loved (Poetry) - 11/17/2007 11:26:05 PM
Stunned! Talk about being able to disappear in to the words! So many good word-combos here: "front lawns of days"; "we aged on our front lawns"; "September afternoon" ... and I bawled at the end, and I don't even cry at funerals, but I revisited painful ones here, in yours... what a gift!--so glad I stumbled into you. --Charlie

below a shallow surface (Poetry) - 11/14/2007 3:19:32 AM
I love the physical presence of heaviness, especially "with the ache of love, life, lust. Such penetrating imagery - abstract and concrete, very physical at the same time. Smoke dancers make our thoughts and senses move sinuously, traveling across your words. In friendship, Axilea

Far from your poetry (Poetry) - 11/4/2007 4:52:24 PM
It seems that you have chosen the right source of inspiration. This poem is made of wonderful sounds, textures, colors and a slowly enchanting atmosphere. And I love these two lines: "let me be the beat of the rolled newspaper slapping your palm" Well crafted piece that I read with real pleasure. All the best, Axilea

Love Song for September (Poetry) - 9/27/2007 5:44:34 AM
There is a touch of love beneath the surface of thoughts, a love for summer and the ensueing love of fall, riding in on the winds of September....a very nice view of this change of seasons... nice..... Art Sun...

Unmerciful, Because We Loved (Poetry) - 9/27/2007 5:26:52 AM
Wow! For a guy reading this I felt my own bosoms heavy with motherhood . . . How's THAT for understanding this poem of feminine mysticism on parade, which isn't really misticism at all, it is merely our DNA, plus a good bit of our ancestery . . . Gotta love it . . . This was good . . .

A Woman's notebook (Poetry) - 9/26/2007 8:49:36 PM
This poem left me speechless. Your words meet something that is deep inside of me. It is a very personal, unique poem, yet it is universally feminine in nature. I simply loved it! Axilea

Love Song for September (Poetry) - 9/9/2007 12:53:12 PM
It's the call of autumn that moves me as well. "puffing little whispers through knot holes" "and watch her toe-tapping in little gusts across the dust." Such vivid pictures. Perfect feeling to match a perfect autumn day. Very well done. Leo

One of the most remarkable works I have read about the coming change. This work had me sitting there with you and the ole dog, (although I probably would have given him a biscuit and barked at strangers for him). Thank you for this journey of words. My best regards, Chris

Love Song for September (Poetry) - 9/5/2007 6:24:19 PM
What a ovely ode to September. Seems like all we remember is the darkness of one September day, and forget the beauty surrounding us. Thank you for the reminder: excellent. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Love Song for September (Poetry) - 9/5/2007 6:11:42 PM
How lovely. I read it three times and enjoyed it more each time. The last stanza ends it perfectly. Yet, it's a poem you don't want to end. You're a great poet jeanne rene and I'll be reading more.

Good Night (Poetry) - 7/18/2007 1:25:22 PM
Just what I needed before I switch off for another night here in south west Scotland. Love the picture you painted in my mind but on the eve of the Open here in the UK and Tiger Woods just been interviewed, I may depart to Carnoustie and the final round in my dream where Tiger will be my partner. The power of dreams can not be contained. Miller

Grey cat jump up to my lap and pause with me (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 5:19:27 PM
You write with lucid insight into your surroundings. Crossing the boundaries of the tactile, and the philosophical, with the ease of a swinging pendulum. Does the cat know that it's being scrutinized by such a talent as you? Light and Wisdom ...

Inspiration can find one as the thread that is within the sands and when it journeys along the trails of the mind it becomes as these thoughts placed within your poem... enjoyed.....Art sun...

The Feeding (Poetry) - 1/4/2007 10:46:12 AM
Very imaginative; this leaves the reader wanting a story. Well done, Jeanne René. (Out of curiosity, I wonder why you spell "René" in the masculine form of the French name. The feminine form is "Renée. You don't have to tell me.) Thanks for sharing this. Love and peace to you, Regis

moth wing (Poetry) - 1/4/2007 10:42:20 AM

Stark but lush imagery in this gorgeous poem jeanne rene. "let me be the forgotten thread torn form the hem of your shirt" Such an exquisite image here. I enjoyed this immensely! Never rest your quill Poet. Light and Wisdom ... Richard Lloyd Cederberg

Far from your poetry (Poetry) - 11/21/2006 3:37:43 AM
Excellent poem, Jeanne Rene. How well you've described reading a particular poet's work, and having a mind-meld, a merging of souls if you will, with a poem or a poet merely through their written words. I think most writers can identify with that. Can you fall in love through poetry? It's up for discussion, but I believe you can ... Excellent poem. Love, CJ

Far from your poetry (Poetry) - 11/21/2006 3:31:37 AM
There is some gorgeous and unusual imagery in this poem. I liked it's subtle yet passionate voice alot.

Week One - Equation/The Quadrangle (Poetry) - 9/3/2006 9:58:27 AM
A very good flow of thoughts depicting the dailiness of our lives. There are always those impressions that remain most vividly in our memories, and you have done a good job, Jeanne Rene' of capturing the looseness and permanence of these occurrences. Never rest your quill Poet ... Unity unwavering! Richard Lloyd Cederberg

Week One - Equation/The Quadrangle (Poetry) - 9/3/2006 9:03:01 AM

Sophie's Mustache (a sestina) (Poetry) - 8/11/2006 8:14:44 PM
I agree with Richard, never rest your quill. This held me from beginning to end. I felt I was right there with you and Sophie, that dear lady. I hated for it to end. Write on.

The Waltz of Elementary Particles (Poetry) - 8/11/2006 2:46:47 PM
A scintillating view of self and how self fits into the grand cosmos, and how self should let the Most High God do His work unfettered. "Let us embrace our unfolding with awe" Indeed! This was a marvelous poetic exploration. Richard Lloyd Cederberg

Sophie's Mustache (a sestina) (Poetry) - 8/11/2006 2:40:25 PM
This was beautifully and creatively written. Almost like flash fiction adhering to a rigid form. six six line stanzas and a three line envoy. I was unfamiliar with this sestina form until now. Thankyou! I enjoyed the reading of SOPHIES MOUSTACHE and would encourage the writer to never rest her quill. Excellent indeed. In poetic vision ... Richard Lloyd Cederberg

The Waltz of Elementary Particles (Poetry) - 6/27/2006 10:29:02 AM
Now this is poetry, philosophy in "the laguage of life." And a fabulous title. Congratulations, Jeanne

embracing the dance  (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:38:44 PM
A fine poem, like a lovely flowing dream that explains all you ever need to know about the earth and the woods and the creatures representing your feelings of love and wonder and intrigue and the need to become one with them. I know that need and treasure it. You should read my poem Willow and you might like Old Souls, too. Thanks for the pleasure, Jeanne Rene. Jerry Andrews

Portrait by Monet as I Slept (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:25:30 PM
Monet and Van Gogh are my two favorites and always will be. This is a lush poem, impressionistic, like Monet's work. The only two writers I've read here who can touch you are Candy Gourlay and Dani. I don't read much or write much, lately. Just not inspired. Spend most of my time on the computer playing internet chess. I love sitting across from another man and trying to outthink him. I guess I'll never outgrow that love of the challenge and competition. I seem to have been competing in one way or another, for this prize or that, since I can remember. It's in the genes, I think. Read me, review me, tell me what you think. Thanks- Jerry Andrews

eating you (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:11:57 PM
Almost as good as the real thing. You do have a way with words, woman, and you're a killer describer. Jerry Southern Horizons is a friend. We've exchanged reviews. A very nice person. J.

Come here ~ to me (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:06:06 PM
I couldn't resist this title. I know what you are saying. I've known complete women like you, around this world. Thank this universe for creating you. Good stuff. Jerry Andrews

running into the rain (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 5:57:43 PM
I really like finding you accidentally. The truth is, that snapshot was irresistible. What a lovely, almost Mona Lisa-like face.I enjoyed running in the rain. You recounts feelings of daily happenings in a way I can't.Just a couple of things: I proofread everything-ex editor of college newspaper and once voracious reader. Severely handicapped kids you were teaching and in the rain-revel not revile. I was sure you'd want these corrections. Please try some of my best: Long Gone Love, Journey, Willow, Ashes In The Wind, Tasting The Night. I'll be reading lots more of you. I have snapshots with most of my poems, Jeanne. If you like my work and need another contributor for your poetry group, I'd like to join y'all, I can tell just by the little of your stuff I've read. Also, try two of my friends-fine poets- Candy Gourlay of South Africa and Dani of Australia. You won't regret reading them. Take care, now. Thanks- Jerry Andrews

Ah, Jeanne Rene, you've instilled wisdom into this piece, with subtle acrimony. I feel I was there, watching the whole scene of deference and defilement... A strongly evocative piece of esoteric realism, distilled into reluctant understanding, on a broad-band level of sharing. Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen

the broadening of definition (Poetry) - 10/27/2005 2:37:03 AM
Jeanne, Funny how a simple handshake can win someones approval but there are always those that are skeptical. Very well written.

Ephemeral Reflections (retitled) (Poetry) - 6/26/2005 12:37:58 PM
Age is a myth that men do not by into as they age next to there wives and still are excited in what they see after a shower. In the wholeness of the woman man still sees his bride as on the wedding night. Great write on the uniqueness of the female body at any age.

Wonderful write. "Druthers," is such a great word.

Composing in a Frenzy (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 7:51:31 AM
I would say that this is powerful and yes I have read the stories of this coming out of the headlines and news casts. This is truly one of those things that you wish that you did not have to write about but it indeed happens. I go one further than Jerry because that fool Kofi Annan and the United Nations will not do a damn thing and their lame excuses for not entering Iraq was well paid for. Hell they moved the WMD's a long time ago and but that is another story. Fine write.

Composing in a Frenzy (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 5:52:53 AM
This is awesome. It says so much about what you feel and where you stand that the reader can't help but feel it with you. The power of the pen... M.Rose

Composing in a Frenzy (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 4:36:21 AM
This is good. It will not help the situation, but it will help assuage the very complaccent mind of us who sit in comfort in front of our computers and wail and moan about real people wailing and moaning. This was a damn fine piece. This will touch the heart of all who read it. It needed to be said, and you said it well. But it will not matter. Send it to Kofi Annan and thhe United Nations cronies who stand by and allow these and other atrocities to takke place in the world they are supposed to be a watchdog over. This is not meant to be a deaming of your words, it is just frustration that such things can happen time and time again and no one who matters cars. Remember Rhwanda?

Composing in a Frenzy (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 4:20:23 AM
Exquisitive, provocative, aching piece, Jeanne!! You glow with your frenzy, recreate its origin with painful intensity, promote growth of mind's awareness, and show how compassion can bring about improvements in individual readers' tactile, reaching need to be shown hurricanes destruction, rainbows healing. You are a true Poet, Jeanne Rene. I'm going to share this piece with a friend of mine, thank you, for your being yourself. Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen

Coming Out Party (Poetry) - 2/20/2005 2:38:28 PM
The only thing about this is there is no hate in heaven. But this is a poem of a soul that has seen much torment.

Coming Out Party (Poetry) - 2/20/2005 1:39:02 PM
What a sad, strange poem. There is the son who believes that even in heaven he will be hated. That is almost too grotesque to deal with. The poem was tender but with the backlast of hate hovering it was really difficult to "get into" the true . . . Oh, I am rambling here . . . Sorry. Loved the way you constructed this almost surreal poem it is just that the lingering hate supercedes any tenderness.
