I totally agree with the perceptive comment you led off with, Paul. Thank you very much for your encouragement. I really like your entry, "Optimism," and congratulations on your win with that fine piece!! :) Bartholomew

This is a deep haiku, Bartholomew. Looking at the heavens, indeed, can give us a sense of smallness and at the same time a sense of the awesomeness of God. Congrats on your win!

Thanks so much, Carol, for your kind, thoughtful, and sincere words. I concur with exactly the contrast you mention, and it is amazing!! Congratulations on your win with "Music of Poetry"! All my best. :) Bartholomew

Blessings and congratulations on your win, Bartholomew - I often find my muse among the stars, and have a number of poems concerning the cosmos and my yearning to see the wonders it holds - all those miracles that no intelligent eyes will ever behond - seems such a tragedy to me, but what we CAN see is so amazing! This is a wonderful Haiku, and a well-deserved win! Blessings, Friend! :-)

Gregory, thank you so much for your consistently positive, encouraging messages! It's a pleasure to hear from you, my friend. I concur fully on what you state about the part of the universe that we can see/sense is AMAZING!! I will read some of your poems on the topic of the universe/cosmos and truly look forward to it. Blessings and all other good things right back to you! :) Bartholomew

Line, thank you so much for terming my poem "a fave"!! You are the first person to do so on PS, and I sincerely appreciate it. Also, I enjoyed your poem, "Jewels Ablaze," and congratulations on your win with that gem! Thanks also for sponsoring the contest, "Healing Power of Forgiveness," which I did not enter, but I still enjoyed reading the winning entries. :) Bartholomew
