I  am a writer, a poet. My poetry is deep, dark and sad, I write a lot about death, but I can write happy if I want to and do. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dreaming.  I collect old books, vintage clothing and jewelry,  I seem to like anything old,  I adore the Victorian house where I live with my cats and I often feel out of place in this world.

Rhyme and Refrain


Blog Posted:5/14/2018 2:32:00 PM

Thank you to all who entered my contest . . .  

even those poems that had nothing to do with my contest and those poems that did not follow the rules of the contest.  They were still great poems to read, but I could not place them.  Do not get discouraged just make sure next time to read and read the contest description and follow the rules, that is the only way to win. But, like I said, still good poems. Keep writing!

Now, for those of you who did follow the rules, WOW, I was blown away.  What great poems.  It seems to me every theme was used, but I think, Death, Where Are You was the favorite.  A big CONGRATULATIONS to all of you.

(I know, there is a long list of winners, oh well, you know that's my thing.)   And, I will be visiting the winners asap.    

If anyone wants to know why they did not place, soup mail me with the name of your poem and the first line,  and I will explain. (I keep notes on all poems)

I Love YOUR THING, Constance, with the generous winner lists. It allows me to see all the entries that were in your contest. Yes, you enjoy the theme of Death, so I am not surprised you liked the ones with that theme the most! Thanks, and congrats to all the winners. It was a very interesting form.

Caren, and thank you for taking part. Entering contests is a way I learn poetry, like new forms and go to themes I might not have ventured. Best of luck with your writing...
