    Bri is perhaps the most vibrant presence now on poem hunter. His humorous writings stand apart. I don't think any other poet here would venture to handle themes the way he does. Also I wonder if any one else is capable of writing in the same style. Sometimes his poems tend to be a little bawdy. Still there is a lot of wisdom in his humour. His comments on others' poems are lessons in Semantics, grammar and spelling. No mistake escapes his x-ray eyes! However his corrective lessons make us a little more cautious. I wish this 'young man' lots of luck and a fruitful poetic career!

    I apologize for taking two years to get around to reading your comment on When Nature Resounds. But your comment caught my interest and made me try out your suggestions- but not the one about the Shapely Damsel in the Floral Pattern Dress, she stays! Thanks.

    My Vote of Thanks!

    Dear Bri Edwards,

    I feel honored that you gave your precious time for evaluating My Scattered Thoughts series, I really treasure your time and substantial contribution according to which I'll edit my poems, and it is something I cannot reciprocate... or express my gratitude...There are many things we ignore simply or do not focus on punctuation and Grammar, and call it just a language barrier. Today I received your critique on Scattered Thoughts i, (and no.X already discussed) ...and I am enlightened about every point you discussed there. Your presence on the site is of substantial value for all of us...

    thank you so much...

    Bri Edwards: I have alwas wondered how people are gifted with the talent of humor. Now, I have intentionally left the letter 'y' in always and I know if I did not tell that now, he'd correct me! An amazing poet Mr Bri Edwards and his level of crirical apprecition (darn! 'appreciation') with a pinch of humor is always great to look forward. A grammer (or grammar?) and spelling artist, he easily guides the poets for rectifying their mistakes and helps them to improve their work. I wish him all the success!

Purple....[humor; Short]

What can I write about purple, the color?
Over that above question I shall mull …. or
just make some stuff up you might just believe.
Let's see what Bri has up his sleeve.

Purple was the seventh color discovered by man.
It's the most often used color in a Chinese fan.
When someone acts silly, we say they are 'acting purple'.
The only word it rhymes with is the archaic word snurple.
