About Dear Heart
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo

I  am a writer.  My poetry is sad, I write death, but I can write happy if I want to. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dancing. I collect books, and  vintage clothes and  jewelry.   I adore the old building where I live with Snuggles Kitty. The avatar statue you see is in memory of my elderly cat Smudges who died at 20 years old. She loved the garden.

Writing Challenge 2, June 2019- Flowers

Blog Posted:7/7/2019 11:32:00 AM

Thank you to everyone who entered my Writing Challenge. As always in my challenges there are multiple placements.  Oh, so many wonderful poems were received including those that did not place were great writes but were disqualified, for the following reasons-

Wrong title, wrong theme, wrong layout, wrong rhyme scheme, wrong syllables,

no date/contest details at bottom, submitted an old poem, sloppy presentation.

For the poets who got it right a big CONGRATULATIONS and I will be visiting your poems soon.   I have no control where your poem falls within each category ie first place, second place, etc. . . .  the PS systems is in control of that.

NOTE:  Sometimes poets change their title or remove contest requirements from their poems, or change some other aspect of the poem after judging but I assure you at the time of judging all winning poems were as required.

Constance
