Hello Soupers Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to all who entered.

It proved to be much harder than some anticipated as out of 35 entries only 18 were correct so I have placed all 18. Some had 2 consonants together or 2 syllables or too many words in the title, as well as the usual non-runners. I did notice a lot of people were helping each other, and that's great, but some mistakes still slipped past those eagle eyes which was unfortunate as the poems were excellent.

Maybe next time I will make it a little easier...ha no i won't...

    I'm delighted that you enjoyed my entry, David! And thank you so much for the placement... I'm gobsmacked LOL.... the lump on my forehead from thwacking my head repeatedly on the desk as I wrote this unique form has since shrunk. It was such a challenge. I'll have to see what's up your sleeve now, lol, writing with our toes, leaving out the letters a, p and o while singing O Fortuna? Hee hee... no, leave that one for me! HA! Hope your love-light are doing well. Hugs, Cyndi

    Thank you so much David for such a fun contest! I have to admit I had to do a bit of weed out those slips...and with the keen eye of a kind souper..a couple I still missed were eventually "fixed"!! Thanks so much!

    Thank you for my placement in the contest, David. With my current studies, Confucius came readily to mind... :-) The only way I kept track was to highlight the "Con" in blue and the "Vow" in red - checking the Con/Vow: maybe a tip for others who wish to attempt this mind boggling poetry Congratulations to all the winners. I will get to reading them over the weekend (nearly midnight here now). Thank your for and interesting challenge, David. Love, Su

    That was indeed a challenge, David! I have yet to try writing a poem with those requirements and if I ever do, I will share it with you-- Super congrats to all your winners, I can only imagine how difficult it was to write those poems, and to judge them too!
