THE 'BESTEST' OF NINE LINES!


Blog Posted:9/10/2013 9:44:00 AM

what a wondrous ride this has been for me, sweet  soupers!...thank you all for sharing your  talent and effort which made this contest a truly fruitful one… an honor to have read each one ; you are all winners in my list even if i had to limit the slots... ohh, some good ones missed the syllable- count requirement, sequence of rictameter form, and repetition of 1st and last lines ...


those who have penned deeply from the heart touched me , along with unique
creative tonality and unique approach of the concept… It seems most opted
for visual#1, nonetheless, there were refreshing takes for visual #2...

Olusegun Arowolo and Pace, G  led the pack with their compelling poetic diction and overall creative impact.

Constance la France and Cecille MacFarlane earned 2
nd glory placements for sheer literary mood and sensitivity of portraying their thoughts.

Jack Horne, Kim Merryman, and Russell Sivey garned 3
rd spots as their poems flowed with unusual emotional appeal and mellow or stirring imagery.

all the others brought the house down, bringing slices of moments to life in a most
 captive manner...

since I do not give HMs, allow me to grant Special Citations to Andrew Crisci and Yasmin Khan---beautiful entries so close to the essentials of the contest rules...

CONGRATS with applause to everyone who joined... My new contest is running
now...come and share your precious gifts with us...

as my favorite cartoon character, chuck, would say, all the 'BESTEST' to you, fine word-spinners!

hugggs and love!
