I would give you a fifteen *********** is I could. Great thoughts
about treating others with respect. We need to help one another
with love. We are all people with dreams and desires. Look at
what is happening at the borders - the news is exposing the
darkness of hate. We need to reach out and help others. Yes,
the beauty of the rose is amazing. flylikeaneagle

Hello poet,
You've written an wonderful rhymed poem for the contest
with excellent imagery that stands on its own very well.
Excellent message about respect for all things.
Sometimes, quiet words speak more than all the shouts.
Perfect picture and presentation.
Very well done.

    Thank you so much for your review and for thinking highly enough of my work to earn your valued and precious six! I am sincerely honored! Sometimes it?s much harder to have an impact with fewer words but sometimes that impact can be far greater than using a whole lot of words! You hit that nail right on the top! xoxoxo

This is a classic poem in a very classic format, a tightly structured iambic rhythm and rhyme scheme. it is musical, in a very traditional sense. Its also kind of a classic romantic idea, of mutual respect, of a traditional philosophy. estory

Hi you are absolutely right. Nobody cares about anybody today. Whether you are hurt or not is not their business.
I have seen and been through so many cases like this..even recently. They will hurt you but t they will come back non facedly for your help again. Sorry I turn my back on them. I hate to do this, but if I did not, I would be encouraging parasites.

    You are so right! It is very important that we protect our own hearts as well as extend kindness to others but if the kindness isn?t going to change anything then as you note, it?s best to not even engage! Our time is only well spent on those that appreciate our heart! Thank you for stopping and reading and for your wonderful comment!

This requires a six-star review which unfortunately I lack having expended them all. Apart from the visions, it creates it is also very deep and aptly echoed in your author's note. The picture certainly does credit and enhances the poem very well. Thank you for sharing and hoping it will do well in the contest.

Hello Friend,
Nice piece of poetry having impressive phraseology, and beautifully depicting its theme.
Smooth and enchanting flow throughout from the beginning to the end with lovely rhyming scheme and lively imagery.
"...So from this garden you may reap
the beauty of respect."
Superb!
Best of Luck!!

I really enjoyed the thoughts expressed here and the solid unforced rhymes. I myself might have tried to keep the rhythm to the 8 beat then 6 beat syllable count throughout, but of course that's your call --as an example instead of the 9 beats first line you could have said " Gently walk this tender garden....
The 4th line could have been " of air and sunlight needs.... since water comes up again anyway in the next line
Not criticism as I found this most enjoyable

All the Best!
Phil

I like to read this as a metaphorical garden with the simply message of be kind to everyone. Respect is earned not taken. I don't know if that is how you intended for it to be taken but either way, well done. Best of luck in the contest.
