You have the Wings of a Warrior. So-- your Words always take flight- taking me to Worlds Unknown. Once again you have placed me in the Deep and Dark. :) And you do it so well. I will say, the darkness isn't where I like to stay. I have lingered in the shadows before. Written of those moments, just to see if I could. Congratulations my friend, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

Congratulations!! I am so very pleased to see this very dark, and Poe'esque poem chosen to be awarded POTD! A very fine tribute made to the master of dark verse-- Edgar Allen Poe. And so right to include my immensely talented and very dear friend Victor in your notes.

I told you my friend, Mr. Poe could never reach your incredible, awesome, terrific gem of a poem - or if he could the competition would probably be too much for him! Perhaps he would just be very proud of you! Congrats ^WW^ on an unequaled poem on the soup for which you were honored with POTD - such a privilege to have a poet such as you in our midst! Hugs, Jennifer.
