Hi, John! Now that I know there's such a thing as POTW, thanks for the nod! (I honestly had no idea there was such a thing!). Poetry and Prose too! :) gw

Congratulations on having written this week's POTW, Gershon. Quite often we lose track of time while writing something, 'magical.' I'm happy for you!

It's a good thing you let me know about this POTW business. I honestly didn't know that such recognition existed!! Is there a POTM too. That's Poem of the Minute -- ha, ha! -- not really: Poem of the Month... or the Millenium. I'm going to suggest PTOTM -- Participation Trophy of the Month for up-and-coming poets, who may not be able to take rejection. lol. Thanks, Jenna! :) gw

Hey GW, many congrats on your win and getting the coveted accolade of POTW - so nice to see another different person getting honoured:-) hugs jan xx

Well, you're certainly right about me being a 'different person.' (My relatives will all back you on that one! lol)... Nice of you to notice, seriously. I'm hoping 'Week' is not spelled with an 'a' in it. lol. Thank you, Jan. :) gw
