NIkko, yours is one of the very best. It has everything, it's interesting and has imagery and the juxtapositioning. Congrats on your win.

We really need distractions on a night such as this don't we. Thank you for you entry. Without it there may not have been a contest. Is a very good poem as all of them were.

hmmm, I don't know caterwaul. It sounds like some kind of flood or something which would be GREAT juxtaposition!! gosh, I see Frank there commenting. He hasn't visited me in ages. GRRRRR
