Omar; I do not traditionally score peoms unless I really like them. I work on the premise that nothing is perfect so the my score of 9 for Wanderlust is exceptional. As you are aware there are too, too many 10's being issued on the site. Your work is free verse and like absract painting, it takes less skill concerning form such as metre and syllables, however you show a very good sense of word value and placement. You have formed a good vision as you have painted the picture and your wishes very well. I applaud you! In fact I took the time to read all of your work and I like them very much. Your free verse is solid. Perhaps you might try a sonnet, kyrielle or pantoum? Your Amigo Honest William
