you can't write poetry? you certainly can. the stuff posted here is for people to get reactions. being honest doesn't mean being mean or putting one down. it is simply like saying, hey, honey, there's a little too much sugar in my tea. the good part is that unlike the tea, we can take the sugar out if we agree that it is too sweet. I though mirth was too sweet, though I see why you used the word. And I'm coming around on the pink and red to like it. So you see, you can write, and criticisms help both the poet and the critic in learning how to do this very unnatural act.
