The Poetry of Things

Welcome to The Poetry of Things, a blog dedicated to creating and sharing specific, image-based nonfiction writing. Here, vocabulary and an acute awareness of surroundings and of self ride themselves out on the page.

  1. Hello Ecco,
    Being much newer to blogging than you are, I’m unsure if this is your ‘about’ page. If it isn’t, just let me know and I can move this critique elsewhere.
    Your blog’s a little bare-bones but well-made. It’s hard to properly critique something based around the idea of helping people write. It’s well-made and you give good, honest responses to your audience.
    The visual layout is sweet and simple, the yellow and the banner of plants, lemons and the like gives it a relaxing atmosphere like an old coffee shop. Similarly, the fact that the different prompts are all stacked about lends a certain air of messy creativity which works quite well. It comes together quite well.
    Your widgets are bare-bones, but you only have the ones that serve your purpose and don’t subtract from your actual focus.
    If I had to criticize something, it would probably be that you have your response to your own prompts as their own separate pieces. Perhaps it would be better to have your own responses in the comment section of the prompt. That way, you are responding to the prompt alongside everywhere else.
    Overall, I quite enjoy it. Good work!

  2. “Something so important yet often overlooked, underappreciated, hindsighted… rests within each domicile.

    The sleek bands and angles resembling the delicate curves of the naked body.

    We caress its embrace with our bodies, so intimately several moments within a day, should we be so fortunate.

    The cool hard surface warms beneath us as we position ourselves upon the hollow throne of moist return.

    I gaze onto the shimmering reflection as I lounge in the warmth of the salty bath beside. What a magnificent work of art to behold.”

      1. It was wonderful! I appreciate that it could be a multitude of things… my initial thought was that it was a mirror, but then I was thinking that it’s a bath tub!
