oh wow, and you put the quote inside the picture too. It's so easy for some people to do those kinds of things. I am jealous because I have to ask students just to help me do something like that.

But see, you have students. I don’t. So I have to know how to do it! ;)

I see how this one won, Mark. Very well done. I liked how you rhymed the lines and put that lovely quote on the bottom. BIG congrats.

Thank you for sponsoring such a positive and encouraging contest, Beata, and for honoring my poem.

Nice way to give a witness. Don't think I understood this form of poetry. Think I wrote 4 lines, not 2. I read Andrea got 8 pages of comments on first place you gave her, and 10,000 something else. That's insane! But fantastic for her. WOW.

Barbara, thank you for stopping by with your lovely comment. Also, please understand that Andrea already had 8 pages of comments on and 11,000 + views of her poem “September” before she submitted it to my contest. She doesn’t need any help from me. Andrea shines on her own!
