About Dear Heart - Wiishkobi Ode
(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 1, July 2019, Repeating Refrain

Blog Posted:7/16/2019 5:28:00 PM

Well, like I wrote in my Writing Challenge description  . . .  

THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE PLACEMENTS IN THIS CHALLENGE.

Many wonderful poems were submitted, it made selecting placements very difficult.  I loved them all and am so proud to have inspired such beauty.  Even the poems disqualified were wonderful.  And there were disqualified because -wrong rhyme pattern, wrong syllable count, wrong title, no contest or date or sponsor, no refrain used, had nothing to do with my contest .(I always wonder about that one)...

Note 1:  I do not decide the order within each category of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, Poetrysoup decides that. I have no control over that aspect of the judging.  

Note 2: Sometimes after the contest is judged poets will change their poems for whatever reason, perhaps changing the title, removing contest information from the bottom, putting their name on the poem, or some other change.  But, I assure you that at the time of judging all poems were as per contest requirements. I also have no control over that. 

To all  poets who got it right a big CONGRATULATIONS !

I will be visiting your poems in the next few days.
