My semi-finalist poem "One last leaf on tree"


Blog Posted:8/27/2011 9:15:00 AM

My Poem "One Last leaf on Tree" which won the first place in Carol Brown's contest Nature Comes to Life, has reached the semi-finalist stage in the international contest by Eber and Wein Publishing, PA.

The poem will be published in a volume of contemporary poetry called FROM A WINDOW which is a multi-volume collection of new and notable poets from around the world that will be available for sale on Amazon.com and the Barnes and Noble website.

I thank Carol Brown for providing inspiration to write the poem.
