    This is a fine appreciation of the fun of skiing and riding! Great ending, too, with a run of four adjectives that sound good together!

    I like the perspective of this poem — just the idea that there is a mystery to things. I also like the simple and clever way it is expressed in the opening two lines. Well done!

    This is a potent piece of writing! The overall structure is rock solid, the preacher-style rhythm never misses a beat, and the righteous anger rings clear. (I also like the way the poem starts.)

    This is a mysterious piece!
    What is the meaning behind this?

    This is a beautiful poem!
    short and moving,
    it is what most people who have lost hope.
    continue to write with blinding colors!

    There is a deep lesson in this poem,
    I can see.
    There are a lot of people out there with a lot of different opinions.
    This is definitely one of them.
    Can I ask,
    whos perspective is this poem from?

    This is indeed a incredible poem!
    Very rich in emotion, and incredibly moving.
    I do have some questions about how the idea formed for this.
    Of course, you don't have to answer,
    but it would be great if you did.
    How did this happen?
    Why did these two individuals, forage a great relationship and then rip it apart?

    This poem left me speechless. The story you're telling really draws the reader in as you recount the months passing by, and I love your word choice. Good job!

    This a really moving and beautiful poem!

    I just have one suggestion about the ending: I think that if you made the ending a little more compact (cutting out unneeded words and revising it so it flows better) it would have a stronger ending and your amazing imagery would shine more.

    It's nice to know that there are other insane snowman making Beatles fans out there. XD
    I once tried to make a snow John Lennon, but it ended up looking like Darth Vader...

    I find this poem interesting because i love winter and it's my favorite season, but i am one of those people who go skiing everyday. I believe there are studies that show when people go outside that they feel better. Not everyone likes to go outside in the winter, so this has made me look at people, who hate winter, a little differently now.

    What a funny random moment in time! The title grabbed my attention and I was like "WHAAAAAAAAT!?" It made more sense when I was reading it. XD As someone who spends every winter trying to recreate their favorite musicians in snow form, I could definitely appreciate this. Maybe this year I'll try Bowie, or the Clash...

    I love this little piece! It captures two different mind sets in six little lines and made me stop and think.

    The interplay of words, title and ending is impressive; there is rich, imaginative language; and it all holds together! Well done!

    This is a beautiful poem, rich with strength and intelligence. It makes me realize, in a way I have never thought of before, that a mirror is actually a medium of communication, like television or photography, and we have to grapple with what it is really showing us.

    I appreciate the call to action you're able to bring to this message. I had a similar reaction, as you saw, but I appreciate the less resigned tone of this. I really relate to it, too.

    This is a brilliantly constructed piece! The time framework is perfect, and it really conveys the amount of drama that can go in a short time.
    It also feels like the poem is happening in real time, as I was reading it.

    What a fun poem! I like the way you touch on all sorts of aspects of the weekend, such as figuring out the lift lines "like playing chess," and especially the way you capture the sense of smell with "waffles straight from the press."
