                                         Pile of ashes
                                         where there was a common shelter.
                                         Pile of ashes:
                                         an abrupt break marked by dashes.
                                         Golden rings, like chains to swelter,
                                         hidden behind vows in welter.
                                         Pile of ashes

    Ruben, I don't know anything about a turtle you are talking about. If you are referring to the comment I made to Ronda in the blogs about PD's latest contest, Chris has the grossest poem you could ever want to read on toilet habits.It is not the one he wrote for Earth Day and I don't think it was even the one in the Dr. Seuss contest. He probably deleted it with all his house cleaning that he always likes to do, but it would have been the perfect poo poem for PD!

    Now this is one where I've to think, I'm left wondering... what comes closest is a marriage gone wrong, but the way you've put your thought into words is exceptional. Congrats Ruben!!!

    This could have many meanings Ruben. I am seeing it as referring to a sad divorce. Very clever and congratulations on your win. And yes of course I remember you. Nice to see you entering our contests and winning. Love, Joyce
