VEIL OF COMPRESSION LIFTS THE SPOTLIGHT
Blog Posted:10/5/2013 6:13:00 AM

 



hello, great soupers... did we have a black-out for a day or two here?.. anyway,  you all brought your sharpest quills  on my contest page, making the selection process difficult--- but happily so... thank you for making the compression spree a wonderful ride... since brevity of this form is necessary, each word counted a lot to make a poem weave a  unified thought... syllable count was definitely a requirement ,and i must say TPS’ counter is not accurate though i looked at it for reference... aside from imagery and total content appeal, i had to narrow the list based on how we all fulfilled the rules...

applause to Jack Horne and Sara Kendrick for an extremely good job of describing sad and mysterious voices through their images ...

to  Andrea Dietrich and Carrie Richards: depth of imagery , language and flow of rhymes are  impressive; spiritual for the former; nature-filled for the latter.

Joyce Johnson, Rhonda J. Saunders and Franco Gonza are worthy of their slots with lyrical undercurrents sustained so melodically throughout their works.

The other winners’ portrayal of the veil offer vivid thoughts -–almost flawless and extraordinary.

i am most beguiled by the deadpan wit of Nancy Jones and the light sense of humor Kash Poet ; i never imagined this kind of take—quite creative!

everyone did their best, and for that i’m proud of you! ..congrats to all who participated...

see you in my new contest.. it’s all about  MOOD...

hugggs and love!
