I try hard to incorporate the suggester's words and my own thoughts without delving too far into the specifics of a poem (so that readers can form their own impressions). No one's ever noted that before; thanks.

It's truly brilliant. You took what I wanted to say and condensed it while making it more powerful. Must learn from ze master. :D

Beautiful telling of the features and how you as the writer feel about those surroundings.  It's very relatable and clear without being straightforward and boring.  Well done. :)

Lovely descriptions. The one that threw me is "DIA"—I'm not familiar with it at all, so the mental image broke down a bit there.

:iconspriteblayde:
SpriteBlayde Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you!

And ah, I was afraid that would take away from it. But I decided to include it because people around here look like you're crazy if you say "Denver International Airport". We all just call it DIA. So, just keeping the spirit of Colorado. :D

:iconneurotype:
neurotype Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
OK--I think you'd need to make it clear that's an airport then, because with the statue I was just like, 'waaaaat.' (All I have to say about DIA, though, is it's so loooooooooooooooooong wow.) I was definitely not in the mindset of 'oh, airport codes.' Are there any more obvious nicknames? I guess it's a bit trickier since it's just got the name of the city.

I agree. Unfortunately, I couldn't think of anything to replace it with. I was hoping that anyone who has heard of our infamous blue bronco statue would get it. There are no other nicknames that I can think of at the moment.

hey, fellow Coloradan here!  I used to live in Denver, but relocated south... the 'Springs is a mediocre city but the view of those beloved Rockies, square on Pikes Peak, it still takes my breath away even after I've been here for years......there are mountains in other places but there is just something about Colorado... it's a fierce kind of love out here... :)  Thanks for sharing this and congrats for the DD!

Very nice! I've always wanted to visit and walk around the Springs.

And you're most welcome! Thank you for reading. :D Great to meet a fellow Coloradan!

If you do, check out Old Colorado City and down town Colorado Springs... the rest is just kind of suburban sprawl... if you like natural beauty skip  Seven Falls and just enjoy Cheyenne Canyon park, some of the best local hiking and breath taking scenery without all the tourist hype.  Garden of the Gods is best in the fall and winter, off season for most tourists, otherwise it's pretty crowded.  It's worth checking out the formations though.

Have you ever been to Estes?

:iconhiland-rose:
Hiland-Rose Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeah... my parents took us up to Estes Park and the shops up there many summers when I was little.  I loved it.  I need to go back there eventually... I have to see if Friar Tuck's is still there... best bean soup in Colorado!
