Once again, Dr. Ram, it was a pleasure to participate in your contest. Thank you for my nice placement. I enjoy working with the short forms too. Best wishes to you in the new year. Sandra

what a nice way to do his contest. I just didn't think outside the box and could not figure out how to do "longing" the modern way. Hope he does not mind I did traditional cinquain.
