Theodora (Theo) Onken Comments (8)

A poet of soul and dignity, I have always enjoyed your poetry, they were as a beatiful cloud bringing shade and rain upon a barren land!
Dearest of hearts, Theodora, Gift from the Gods To lucky us. Even though I don't know you personally, I can feel the love and goodness that comes from your beautiful heart and poetry. You emanate kindness and care. May you always be blessed as you bless us with your beautiful soul, your impeccable poetry and your wonderful presence.
From the frightening examination of Manson in Mr. Manson (Paranoid Schizophremic with Delusion) on Cocaine- - in which Theodora paints the darkness in which this evil person lived and fed off of- - -to the delicate nature images delivered up in In the Blink of An Eye, poetry lovers will never be disappointed in the range of topic, the depth and breadth of examination, or the extraordinary poetic passages Theo provides. She enchants you with the first words in her poem Growing Up I Recall and then she breaks your heart in One Step Forward-Two Steps Back (Be warned- The pain in these lines is hard to bear.) So be prepared- there are many treasures sprinkled throughout her lovely poems that have been created out of the beauty of her heart and soul- but there are also other poems, deep and complex poems, that deal with pain and darkness- - -this talented poet is no one-trick pony.
I've thoroughly enjoyed reading Theo's well-written poetry that comes from the heart. She has a nice flow to her writing with a solid (but not overly done) use of rhyme as well as other forms. The subject matter is also quite varied, which I enjoy as a reader. She has a unique and fun grasp of metaphor, imagery, and personification. Thanks for sharing your poetry Theo! :)
An amazing poet with great wisdom and tremendous feeling.
excellent poems. you are great in explaining your feels. i invite you to read my poem
A very good poet. Her pieces flow like prose, with solid narrative plot and themes. Her word choice is curious to me. Not what I would use... a different thinker. The metaphors she uses are generally thematic, rather than propositional. I'd like to see a something she considered a challenging piece for her.
