Angelou's quote is choice, especially the part about the egg! I enjoyed your mono-verse rhyme per stanza and the regular pattern. It is "hell growing old," but we have to make the best of it, since the alternative is even less desirable! Smiles- Joan

Hello, MariLyn,

I have the same problem. I enter contests once in a while but hardly ever win. Last year I entered a lot of them but since January I slowed down. I got tired of wasting my money. LoL Sometimes they are fun, though.

I really like your poem. It's very well written and it reminds me of a couple of old ladies I know. LoL They can be very grouchy.

Good job!

    Hi Gypsy. I guess we all go through spurts where we enter contests, then take a break. I appreciate your nice review on this poem. I think we all know grouchy people. Marilyn

Marilyn,
I enjoyed your poem for the colors contest. You did a great job with the prompt. I really like your monorhyme, too. The artwork is perfect.

You expressed how many in this situation believe they are doing/saying nothing wrong or hateful. Some of it is age. But some of it is just plain meanness on their part.

I only saw this version of your poem. Good job & thanks for sharing. Janny

    Hi Janny. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review and comments. Once in a while I talk myself into entering contests, always relieved when they're over, and vow not to enter again. There is one other contest I entered where I changed the wording according to prompt. Going to change that one back the way it was, too, as I like the original much better. :) Marilyn

A very well-written poem. I think we all have an aunt with some of these colorful attributes. I recognize at least two of my family members in some of them. Lol.

If you had an Aunt Sue and she read this, you'd be in big trouble. haha

I enjoyed our mono-rhymed tercets and see that you've used alliteration('forcing a false, sweet smile'; brassy bold; hateful heart)

You followed the rules and used two colors: blue and gold.

Good luck in the contest.

    And green, red, yellow and gray. Thank you for your cute comments and great review. I think if I did have an Aunt Sue she make me go stand in the corner.

It all rhymes, it's full of cranking color, pith and spit too.

You got that money bag alright!

This was fun verse and Aunt Sue is a hoot.

Good luck.

An amusing tale of Aunt Sue to nicely answer this prompt for a short but colorful poem. Amazing how short-tempered people may believe that thy are patient and considerate. Take my father-in-law for instance....

There is an irony here, that everyone would have to be sweet to the sour old dame if they ever hoped to inherit!

    Hi KWS. Yes, irony. I don't have an aunt Sue. Some people do. They're nice for the wrong reasons. Old people can be cantankerous. I know cause I'm one. LOL! Thank you for reviewing.

This is a very vivid poem about Aunt Sue. You paint a picture of this colorful character. She "believes her hateful heart pumps pure gold." Many people have an Aunt Sue in the family. Your poem is well-structured with a mono rhyme in each stanza. Thank you for sharing. I wish you success in the contest.

I counted six colors and everyone fit in so naturally. I like the format of three stanzas, each group with its three end rhymes. Nice use of alliteration and assonance through out.
