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 apartment where I live with my cat.  My poetry drowns with tears. I can turn any theme sad.

The Haunted House


Blog Posted:9/1/2018 11:16:00 AM

Thank you to all who enter my contest, The Haunted House, all the poems were wonderful . .  

Sadly, some writers did not follow the rules of the contest, like having the wrong title, no date at bottom, no contest and sponsor at bottom, or wrote  a poem nothing to do with an actual haunted house, or the form you selected was not correct,  so these were eliminated.  (although very good poems). You really must read the contest in full and follow the rules.

Yes, I have multiple winners, this is something I do, if this bothers you in any way, perhaps it is best you skip my writing challenges.  This is an option given in Standard Contests, and I intend to use it.  I respect the sponsors of Premiere contests very much, knowing how difficult it is to pick just 10 poems.  And gosh isn't it just a thrill to receive a trophy on your poem.

Some poets change their poems after judging for various reasons, perhaps to enter in another contest, or the title was not one they would have chosen, or they eleminate the contest and sponsor requirement at the bottom for whatever reason  I have no control over this, but I assure you at the time of me judging, all aspects of the rules were correct.  No need to send me soup messages concerning this.

So, finally after having said all this, CONGRATULATIONS to the winners, your writing is awesome.  I gave you a theme and you took it to amazing places.  I am so proud my contest inspired you to pen these wonderful poems.  I will be visiting each of your poems in the next days, not sure how many, lol (time is not my friend).

A new challenge is being posted shortly  . .  get your pens ready

Thank you Connie and Sandra for entering your beautiful poetry into my contest, yes Connie it is sad that many poems including mine have none or only a few comments, it is not the poetry soup of yesterdays that is for sure....

Dear Constance, I rarely visit the blog as my time online is limited, but I want you to know I read the poems of every single winner on your list, some of whom had no comments at all, and I left all of them a comment. I was very impressed by all of them. I appreciate my top win in your contest and thank you for inspiring me to write about a subject I never write about. Congratulations to everyone! Aloha, Connie : )

You don't need to justify yourself, Constance. You have made many poets happy over the years with your generous number of placements for us. We basically just need to follow your rules and do our best! Thanks so much for my win. I really got into that story I created. Congrats to all.
