Thanks to all who entered my "Doors" contest. There were a number of tremendous entries. Many excellent poems were entered. I would have loved to place many more. If you got an N/A don't be discouraged I enjoyed all the entries and it was a matter of preference at time of reading. I'm sure on a different day or frame of mind the winners list could have been quite different. Thanks again for entering, my hope is that you have a poem you are proud of. 

All the best and Easter Blessings!

You know I haven't entered a contest in such a long time. I suppose I should have given it a try, but I never check the contest page. Let me know next time you have one running....Hugs. Miss you

Did you feel I was unfair? Perhaps the best thing is to do a contest and invite all who entered my contest to enter yours and then you can judge the contest correctly.

Hi Richard...I did write a poem for your contest, but it took me long to submit it; in the end all available spots had been taken up. Regardless, I want to thank you for the inspiration. Regards // paul
