I know so many of you now, well not personally! For those who I am meeting for the first time, my name is Kim Rodrigues. I love to write about my family, travel, life, current events, and Christian themes. I consider my writing eclectic. I enjoy trying out the various forms, love brevity poems, and often write in free verse. Please try a sampling of my poetry. I hope you enjoy! I will try to visit your postings, as well. Happy Writing!

Thank you all for entering my pantoum contest! Alas, some were not considered due to no rhymes,  no dates, name attached, too many verses. 

Congrats to all the winners!

Off the top of my head, I’d say when I judged this contest, I was pulled by the beauty and the message that was conveyed. There were some that just tugged more at my heart. I often enter a contest, go back and look at the winners and wonder why I wasn’t on the list. I sigh, walk away, then keep writing. I love you all! <3 Kim
