I'm glad you enjoyed your contest, Catie. Wish I could have thought of something as well. It was the free verse aspect I found challenging. BIG congrats to all your winners. I bet they are awesome.

Thanks for the awesome win, Catie. I had considered withdrawing my poem, because of Sandy Hook. I had worried the original intent would be lost and that the message would be misunderstood. I wrote this prior to the massacre... my feelings remained constant on mankind's role in the planet's distruction, our need to reach out towards each other. Glad you saw that, hon! Congrats to all the other fab winners. Appreciated this nudge, made me really think! Contests of this nature are never easy, but it can bring out some REAL poetry that would make the beat poets nod in aggreement. Big kinda sad smile from Cyndi--yes, these, times call for contemplation, self-evaluation. xox
