    Deb, congratulations on your win in my senryu contest! Sincerely, I found most of the placements interchangeable....these are simply numbers. You did a superb job pulling off a modern senryu, and the last line was excellent with all of the possible interpretations! Well done!~Chris

    Brilliant, Deb!! Sadly, this is just what ended up happening to the tribes who brought their feast to Jamestown and welcomed the early settlers. GREAT last line! Best wishes in Chris's contest. Love, Carolyn
