CONTEST CREDO:to provide a showcase for poets who share their giftings here.I select  those that I would include in a 'printed collection'(a judgement that uses my experience as a Amazon poetry book reviewer.TIP Content is everything,as all poetry is  structured prose to me.BIO:I am English and began writing poetry at the turn of this century.My early interest was in short forms,.I created and promoted quite a few here on PS (perhaps my best known is the Footle).With encouragement from a member here I moved onto to longer forms,publishing my poetry in print,blog ,and twitter .I came to conclude that all poetry is structured prose and remains a work in progress until recited aloud, (the apex of our art form) when a unique experience 'an as is moment' occurs between voice and ear, much the same as the experience that happens when viewing a work of art? (se my art portfolio links below to experience this phenomenom)

**Check out my 'youtube clip recited aloud  poems'  on my youtube channel(entered as ichthyschiro) some of which include a sample  from  my arwork catalog

Many interesting aspects and layers to this one, (which I like), and while I'm generally not a fan of repetition, it is used as more of a brush than a color here, and I like the result. Quite a story, and some fun surprises, with its many emotions and perspectives. I've had an idea for a short-story or book to write, (an extension of a couple of poems of mine - 'Mischief' and "To Help A Hob", which is part one), about the hobs, (morphed to 'hobbit' by Tolkien), the mythical creatures that haunt GB, that farmers leave milk for at night. So, anything similar gets me going again on that idea, though my knowledge of the history and country is limited - I need to research more! Great - thank you!
