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, 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.

Thank you to everyone who entered my challenge using my invented form,The Photograph, the poems were beautiful even the ones that did not place for a variety of reasons.  Look at the contest to see the reason why your poem was disqualified.

Congratulations winners, I will visit your poems ASAP.

Can you share WHERE to look to see why your poem was disqualified? I just found the manage your contest entries by accident today and see that most of mine were n/a. I know this one was probably disqualified for not indenting twenty spaces (which I did but when I copied and pasted into the submission form it left-aligned everything) If I tried to tab something over it would go to the next form field. I’m sure there are other things I didn’t do in the first contests I entered- name of contest, etc- but I think I’ve gotten better at checking those things. I don’t know how to go back and see what disqualified me though.
