That Sea of Gray

I lay my red rose but the wind takes it away, and I follow it among the rows and rows; past all those who quietly in death repose, and in a trance I begin to meander in that sea of gray . . . ________________________ March 1, 2020 Poetry/Rhyme/That Sea of Gray Copyright Protected, ID 20-1232-434-03 All Rights Reserved. 2020, Constance La France Excerpt from my poem 'Graveyards Beautiful' Posted 12/18/19 Submitted to the Premiere contest, Rithimus Divisa 2 sponsor, Gregory R Barden Seventh Place

Greg, thanks for another great contest and for my placement, yes, I imagine that those Premiere contests must be so difficult to judge _Constance

wow, this is fantastic, Dear Heart. Has Greg started a new contest or is this the one of yours that won on that list that did not post? I gotta check that out. By the way, Craig got a trophy for winning Greg's contest, so even if our names did not get posted on a winners' list, I think Soup counted our wins. I am pretty sure I saw you were on that list. I am going to go check it out again to see what you had posted for that contest.

Andrea - I corrected that one so you DID get posted on the "official" results - it's right on the contest list with the rest.

Andrea, this poem is for Greg's new Premier contest, the other one says NA on my contest page, so I doubt the wins count, but I still got 6th place with my poem 'on gossamer wings' as stated in Greg's blog and that is all the matters _Constance
