1.1. Even narrative poems, in essence, are observation.
1.2. Therefore, imagery is key to poetry.
1.21. However, imagery does not necessarily make a poem (see 2.11.)
2. Prose is exploration.
2.1. Observation is still a key aspect within prose, yet it is secondary to exploration.
2.11. Conversely, exploration is still a key aspect within poetry, yet is is secondary to observation.
2.12. Therefore, line breaks do not make a poem.
3. You must be aware of the audience whilst writing a text.
3.1. For poetry, a poem must be good within its external aesthetic; you should be able to enjoy a poem at first reading.
3.11. Yet, a poem must have an internal aesthetic too; a poem should have substance.
3.12. A poem should make readers want to read it more than once.
4. Author Is Audience.
4.1. The preferred reading of a text and the differential decodings of a poem are equal in terms of legitimacy.

Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, a review
So, during the time when superheroes ruled the movie theaters, Fox was impressed enough with the original Fantastic Four movie’s box office results (despite its less than stellar critical reception) to make a sequel. In some ways, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer promised to be more than the original movie. More locations, more fight scenes, more powers. When it came out, it didn’t exactly set the world on fire.
As Reed Richards and Sue Storm prepare for their wedding, a silver object enters Earth's atmosphere, creating 1 mile wide craters across the Earth. General Hager asks Reed to track and identify its movements. He initially refuses, to appease Sue, who feels he is again neglecting her for his work. However, he surreptitiously builds a radar tracker to locate the object, as the Army requests.
“Rise of the Silver Surfer” is more of the same movie, in both good and bad ways. There’s

Another example: A character become metal insane because she is alone, last example character all the time is shy, happy, kind character turn into mean, hateful, angry crazy, monster..

Such a gorgeous setting sun
a caring eye
I thought to pause and thank someone
I thought to say good-bye
I didn't say why down the road
I saw a silent djinn of dust
a calling voice
I didn't speak my heart or trust
Put words around my choice
I hadn't thought that down the lane
Such a trusting hand to hold
Should not have been so quiet cold
Should not have left her there
And yet I thought to say good-bye
and still I haven't said it yet
Burdened by that willful debt
I owe to one so dear
Farther down the sunset road
from one I left so long ago
a looming moon
do not dwell on what I owe
it will be paid off soon

A True Fire-fighters' Halloween Story-
County Community Burn Ordinances Pertaining to recreational fires and burning of yard and household waste.
All outdoor burning is prohibited in the City except for those parcels described in ordinance. Recreational fires are allowed, but not during the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
At 8.00pm on October 31st two fire-fighters could see a fire raging in someone's backyard. It was clearly in breach of the rule on burning leaves after dark. One of the firemen knocked on the door, and they both waited, each holding their helmet in their hand. A little old woman opened the door and promptly dropped a bar of candy into each helmet. She then told them, "You boys are a little old for trick and treating.", and closed the door. The fire-fighters left open mouthed.

PixelsVideo games have become almost the norm in popular culture. Everywhere one looks, chances are there is a video game being promoted. But the classic games of the past like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong will always be in gamer's hearts as the one they grew up with. Unfortunately, Hollywood has a reputation of turning popular video games into bad movies; movies about video games, on the other hand, have had a good reputation. The only downside to all of this is that now we have an Adam Sandler film that goes into the games of yesteryear. And it sucks. The movie “Pixels” is a strong definition of how to make a bad movie. Ridiculed with lame jokes, and mostly nostalgia, this movie just fails at everything it tried to accomplish. “Pixels” is a bad video game movie with a lot bugs attached to the project.Pixels14 hours ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Yup,Power Rangers took not only America but every country on the planet by storm. IT was crazy,huuge and really nuts insane of a concept but it worked. Sure tokusatsu hitted on well in other countries that were not USA-based but it was completely noticed thanks to Power Rangers giving Sentai the push it needed and especially the toku medium in general. Like any other 90's comic book hero,the Power Rangers were extreme and some of the packaging and illustrations did gave the regularly-physique teenagers odd muscle structure thanks to our ol' friend,Rob Liefeld,at least they weren't given pouches which is possibly better not to have but instead gained an emblem on their chests...no clue why but to describe it,I say it's a liv

Since graduating from the University of North Texas in May 2013 with a bachelor of arts in English, I have pursued my long-time dream of working as a freelance editor. My mission is to help other writers shine. So far, I've edited ten novels and one biography among four independently published fiction authors, one personal essay for an actress and playwright, and one scholarly article for two academic authors. I love what I do because I get to enjoy literature and help others all at once.
A note of interest is that I'm a writer, myself. When I'm not redlining a manuscript or transcribing audio files with Burns Transcription Service, I can often be found writing just for fun.

He never allows anybody to lay a foot on his grass and always keeps whatever ends in his property. D.J accidentally throws his ball into it and damages his grass trying to recover it as quickly as possible, and Nebbercracker gets so furious that he suffers a heart attack. Since then, D.J notices that very strange things happen in that house and is soon witness of the house moving on its own and swallowing everyone who comes near it. With the aid of his best friend Chowder and Jenny, a girl who was saved narrowly when she was almost eaten, they try to tell the adults but no one believes them, so they prepare themselves to get into the house and discover what is going on there.Review-Monster House (2006)17 hours ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Me: Hey, friends. It's me, Mylester. Thank you for joining me to read another review from "Mylester's reviews". Well, "Girl Power" month is close to being over, so I thought it would be nice to end it with one of the most classic girl power movies with a Disney Princess. Today, I will be reviewing "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves". This Disney classic was from way, way, way back in 1937. I saw it on VHS when I was young. It was a wonderful classic. This character is also one of the most beautiful Disney princesses in Disney history. Let's check it out.

This movie begins with a written opening sequence about Snow White, a beautiful princess who lives with her evil stepmother. The evil queen forces Snow White to work as a scullery maid, yet Snow White is still beautiful. What she doesn't know, though, was the Queen wanted to know who would be the f

First of all, what is Heresy? The Webster's Dictionary defines it as, 'religious or ideological belief opposed to orthodoxy'. The word itself is a Transliteration of the Greek word, "hairesis" (noun form), "hairetikos" (adjectival form), "hairetizo" (verb form) which are in reference to "a choice to deviate". The plural noun form, Heresies, is found in I Corinthians 11:19, Galatians 5:20, and II Peter 2:1. The singular noun form is found in Acts 24:14. The adjectival form is found in Titus 3:10. Now the Greek words have been translated into other words, but these are the only locations where there is the Transliteratio

Today we'll be looking at a movie that I've been wondering about ever since I saw the ending to Despicable Me 2, Minions. Minions, as you would expect, is a spin off movie of the Despicable Me franchise showcasing what the Minions were doing before being under the employment of Gru. It's really no surprise that this movie exist considering the Minions have become enormous movie icons over the past five years. How exactly could you do a movie with the Minions?
