my goodness, dear soupers! …thank you all for making it so difficult for me to judge this contest… i have learned so much from your amazing entries-- especially the interesting and unique array of poetic styles...

i have agonized over judging this; there were so many truly excellent pieces that i really regret not being able to give out more slots!...please know that i found something fantastic in every piece and was well fed by your poetic prowess…

awards were based on proper use of the form, poetic flow of the theme ( depicting music of the night), substance of content, and sensory feel of imagery…

if you can, please find time to read the poems and feel the magic of each piece!

for your creative effort and support, i have nothing but praise for everyone… sweets cheers to the winners and participants!...


meanwhile, a new adventure awaits on the contest page… care to dabble on a new Asian form?... come and spin with the rest!... here's a visual just for inspiration!



love to all and huggs!
