Beautifully written poem and great imagery! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this! I especially loved the ending about how the rhododendrons still slept even after the ice had melted away. The last lines were just really powerful to me. Great job!

This is very nice! I don't quite get it, probably because I am not familiar to the southern region and I have no idea what a Rhodendurun(however it's spelled), but, I liked it. It has this strangeness to it that I find attractive.
I think making it rhyme is a poor suggestion, though. A poem can flow without rhymes. Just keep it the way it is.

ah, i really don't think you should make it rhyme.
i really enjoy this poem, how it hints at a larger picture, but doesn't go into detail. i also like that it evoke new orleans, and gets into the setting more than most poetry.
i'm new here, if you'd consider reading/reviewing some of my work it'd be great, you seem like you really know what you're doing.

I mostly agree with Ihana. Also, if you can manage, I believe this poem could be really good if you could make it rhyme! You might consider trying it....
However, I did enjoy the poem, the story was interesting, and was just very well done. The way you told the story made it flow really well. Great job!
