I started writing poetry in November 2006. However, after losing my poetry notebook with about 135 poems in early 2009, I lost my passion for poetry completely. I was jobless for almost a year due to the recession of 2014, during that time period, I reignited my passion for poetry to stave off boredom. I discovered Poetrysoup and started posting my poems in 2016. The first poem I posted, "Wings of A Butterfly." My poems "Sing To Me, Nightingale, Unfulfilled Dream" and "A Waxing Crescent" appeared in the first issue of Poesis Online Journal

Guys, I do apologize. I should've made it clear that all entrants use the "I" language for the personification contest. For instance, if you choose "The Mockingbird", you become the bird itself.  So, if you wrote your poem from the perspective of an observer, you must fix it in order to place. PLEASE don't forget! Thank you...

Good luck everybody!:-)
