About Thvia Stein
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI am a divorced, 43 year old woman of Scottish parentage with 5 amazing kids and 2 precious grandchildren. Currently I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

I'm not an expert on anything in particular but have the ridiculous ability of total subject recall to see me through most any single-serving conversation I happen to stumble into.

I love writing poetry because there is something awe inspiring about the creative and skillful structure of a thought or idea.  It is not just what you say, but how you say it.  Poetry is simply the artistry of language. 

Anyway, off we go to write great things and move great minds!  Thank you for indulging my foolhardy ramblings and for taking a moment to get to know me.



The devil made me do it, finalized earlier than I thought!

Felt great later today and got the judging done earlier than I thought I would, but wow you guys don't make it easy to judge!  I had to disqualify a few because they weren't sonnets but truly great stuff in spite of that.

Thank you so much for making me laugh and think. .

My judging was totally blind so congrats to everyone who entered, I can't tell you how I struggled!  Marking the contest finalized was not without much hesitation!

Results are on page 2 down a ways.
