Very uplifting message in this work! A 9 1 1 poem is a poem with nine syllables in the first line and 1 syllable each in the nest two lines. We invented the form in Brooklyn! You might want to add the form to your "arsenal" of poetry. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Andie, I can see why Silent chose this, I really like how you ended this with extreme opposite state: grief.joy... I like the tsunami part... and the double feeling you aroused in this.. this I could say touch also some descriptions of a diamante poem... excellent write! truly deserving!~Olive Eloisa =`)
