Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

First I'd like to thank Cyndi MacMillan for taking her valuable time to offer her considerations on the contest entries. I must say we were both blown away and agreed totally on the top two poems and thought all these winners were exceptional. We did part a little on a couple but overall we agreed.  Thanks so much for honoring the contest with your entry and mega kudos to the winners. BTW, Cyndi said that Olive's poem (we know it's Olive now) spooked her because it felt so much like Linda-Marie would write and we are all sad that Linda-Marie is not here.  That's a compliment btw Olive. Carrie and Nette--you guys were clear choices for the top!! Wowser!!
