THE WONDER OF SYNESTHESIA...APPLAUSE!


Blog Posted:5/26/2013 4:37:00 PM


since  i have been gone for a while due to medical and personal reasons, it seems this  challenge may have been one of the abandoned contests on PS... my apologies for  the long wait and my 'sudden' disappearance...

 

you  all wrote beautifully, the kind that

knocked the ball out of the park with unbelievable poetry...winners  were selected on the basis of using the senses to compose pieces that spark of  originality, emotional appeal and assonance... i was deeply amazed by a buffet  of poetic styles from semi-surreal, existential to abstract approaches.. more  so, poets who ascribed language or metaphors without directly using words  like taste, smell, feel, sound , touch were serioudly  considered...

those  who used forms other than free verse were not counted, awhhh...

since  i do not give HMs , allow me to bestow a special citation to the poem,' Flying  Like Living Butterflies', which is a rhyme...

sweet  cheers to everyone; you all remain winners in my heart!... thank you for being  part of this challenge... i am truly grateful for your patience and  support!

CONGRATS  with love and  hugggs!

    Thank you, soul-sister... you know my heart and how I feel about you, as a person of heart and as a heart-directed poet... congrats to all the winners and thanks for my placement. More important than any contest you host, is that you are happy wondering soup halls and that your health is returning! Now... for the love of mike... never scare me that way again. BUT--- when you need a break, take it! A sabitical does the body mind and spirit good. Clears the eyes, too, right hon? Love ya, head to toe! xox must fly! Rainy day and girl is wired to the max! LOL!

    I'm with Craig.......the most important thing is that you are back and hopefully feeling much better. Don't ever think a contest is more important that taking care of your personal needs, Nette. I am so grateful, and pleased, however, that you found mine to your liking....but mostly happy to have you here with your friends! Thanks so much!
