Winter’s dusk forlorn on the moor has found me. Sky has cried its tears; now I soak in stillness. All at once, I hear in the gloaming - bird song flooding the wasteland! Feb. 4, 2019 Entered Aug. 22, 2021 for William Kekaula's 'Your Best Sapphic Stanza' Poetry Contest

Just when we think we are all alone, nature reminds us of its presence. Love "winter's dusk" - such a vivid picture in two words that put us right into the scene. Congratulations on your win Andrea.

Andrea this is done masterfully--it flows so beautifully--which is not a simple task in any form but especially difficult in this one! BRAVO!

The effort was worth it Andrea - I noticed you helped others with their meter, that is a true poet friend. Too many don't even look or try. Bravo to you!

I love the combination of torrent of rain and the bird's song flooding the moors, Andrea. Dusk and gloaming contribute to a bleak, eerie feeling of wilderness. The topic appeals to my imagination! Regards // paul
