~ SPECIAL TOAST TO 'JUST A MINUTE' WINNERS...~


Blog Posted:10/26/2012 5:59:00 PM


what a wonderful journey, dear soupers!...  you all should be so proud of your magnificent poems! .. the winning ‘minute’ poems  were those that grabbed me and left me sleepless, breathless!...i was totally taken by the different variations of the theme from experiential touches, metaphors  to characterizations,  wow!... likewise, proper use of form, poetic mood, flow of content, and overall creative impact were taken into consideration… about 3 really great entries missed on syllable counts that i had to bang my head on the wall ( sigh!) ...

nevertheless, i really appreciate everyone  for  spending quality time to  quill remarkable poetry and offering them to the rest of the soup gang to relish for a long while--- that means so much to me!...always remember that you are all champs!...

clappies and congrats to all…

i feel so blessed to have been part of this ride; thanks you for this feel-good moment!...


...meanwhile, be ready to spark your muse’s torch as my next round is now posted on the contest page… would you give it a try?... it’s something worth your while… just for ice-breakers:  the poetic form starts with the letter V and theme looks something like this:


come and ride with me!....love and hugggs!
