First, I would like to thank everyone who submitted something for my At First Glance contest, they were all excellent. As much as I wanted to place a first place stamp on all fifty I could choose only one. This time around it goes to Dave Aberfoyle with his poem Red Becomes You! As soon as I read it I knew and I am sure once you read the same thought will come over you!! I have sponsored many contests throughout my time here on the Soup and have never had one with such an overwhelming amount of support. I am full of joy and feel all warm!! Thank you again for posting your poetry in support of my contests, I will see you again soon!!!

    Hey JP, what an amazing contest. Thanks much for placing me and more for your constructive advise.. I agree with you and I'm going to find inspiration to change last couple of stanzas. Congrats to all the winners!
