Choka Contest


Blog Posted:6/1/2012 3:59:00 AM
I have 35 entries to date. Less than half I have even considered. Come on folks- if you're going to spend the you may as well do it right! I have Sonnets, Light poetry, Free Verse and a few other formsin there-

This is for CHOKA and CHOKA only. If you enter a poem in any contest don't waste the time of the sponser- or your own time by not following the rules. Take a few minutes and read the instruction.

 This last bout of poetry I had 9 entries, only 3 made it to the 2nd round. That is just ridiculous! And I don't give 2nd chances. i will not e mail the contestants to ask them to rewrite dur to wrong syllables or to do the right form.

now, if someone were to ask me a question- that would be a completely different story.
please folks. read instructions and write the poems properly.

Thanks,

A. Green

    OK..please check my syllable count my counter says its OK..but my counter is often wrong LOL but I did give you a choka..though why on earth you would ask for a roman gladiator poem written in a Japanese form I have no idea [grin] at least I got you closer to closing and I did sincerely try ;)

    Hi, Amy, hi,, I've been wanting to stop for a long while now.. First let me tell you something..."WELCOME BACK!" I have missed you throughout the years. Don't think I haven't, just cause of our back than history. Which was nothing really. I'm glad you had lots of life to explore. You will always be a special poet in my book * remember we added a little bit of female slam here on the soup, How could I ever forget., you actually inspired one of the best slams i ever shared out here.. I actual won first place with it, down the Mustang Island, here in Corpus Christi Texas, I entered the forever slam, in a giant spring break contest,, Slamming the Cracker Jack box.. , he he,,yup. I had to change many words.. maybe one day, I will share it here on the soup, always wanted too.. Don't worry I transformed the entire poem. and thank you so much for accepting me for who I really am inside and out,, ha ha,, hope you know the outside of me is much deeper than the inside,, and I don't care what any one says. I truly am nothing like my poet name.. I'm a kitty Kat in disguise. but, yes,, with that big base you mentioned in my blog.. always..pd
