Underneath the exterior Gardenias bloom unannounced Lamenting that no one lifts the veil Yearning to be seen...

    Ms. Gorelick, I've read several of your creations now. This is a great one. Your poems using rhyme are nice and soothing. You have a soothing quality in your works. I think you have a strong grasp of language and the power of words. I prefer your free verse style. You have nice stories. Keep up the good work Regards, Earl

    I love gardenias! What a tragedy if they can't be seen or smelt. Congrats on your win with this sad acrostic. Love, Kim

    This is really beautiful even though the word is ugly. I guess the poor dears will wilt into ugliness while staying undiscovered. Love this and congrats to you, Barbara.

    Sharp imagery and concise verse evokes sympathy for the one who feels inferior :)
