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 on my poems honors my elderly cat Smudges who died at 20 years. She loved to lay in the shade of the garden. 

Ten poems that define me as a poet . . . (from thousands)

1. The Dream Lingers https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/the_dream_lingers_408612 This poem was written after a near death experience, it stills haunts me, I could hear my mother calling me.

2. Safe In My Heart Forever https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/safe_in_my_heart_forever_549494 My mother was my anchor, the wings beneath my feet and my best friend, I miss her so very much.

3. Tattered Pages https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/tattered_pages_688344 At the end of the poem, a baby born, died and I was told he was adopted, my parents lied.

4. Dad's Workshop https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/dads_workshop_714811 I wrote this poem in 1997 but only posted it when I was posting on poetrysoup- it is about Dad.

5. Beautiful Scars https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/beautiful_scars_735565 This poem gives you just a small glimpse of the pain and grief I carry with me every single day.

6. And That Comes From Within https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/and_that_comes_from_within_1127173 My health is not that good, never has been and never will be, and no money will change my outcome.

7. in my green dream https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/in_my_green_dream_762889 I love this poem, dreamy and spiritual, I am all about nature in this one, come on a green journey.

8. A Lost Feather https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/a_lost_feather_783977 This poem is very meaningful to me, it speaks of my Ojibwe roots and of my ancestors in the sky.

9. "Kindness is the Key" https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/kindness_is_the_key_848785 When awful things happen to us in life it is easy to become mean and resentful but kind is better.

10. I Write Fragments https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/i_write_fragments_1243058 This poem sums up my journey in writing, fragments, snippets that drip, drip from my pen and mostly at night

Monchielle Contest Finalized

Blog Posted:4/14/2022 2:06:00 PM

Had some trouble judging as the placements kept moving.  But after 4 tries I am confident I have it right now, sigh!  Great poems from all poets, so CONGRATULATIONS on your podium wins.  Now, remember I do not decide the order in each group of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, Poetry Soup decides that.

Reasons for NA's

-no theme noted at the bottom

-rhyming off

-syllables off

I will be posting a new contest today for NEW Form N ... it will be Narrative and there are 8 themes (pick one only) 10 + lines (requirement), All Poems will start with, Let me tell you a story ... (requirement) Title 1-4 words only (requirement). Optional quote by poet, or other.  Optional images, video, audio. Date written, Contest, Sponsor and Theme at bottom (requirement) 

Constance

Thank you, thank you Constance. Your contests inspire me not just to write; but research on what to write. In that way, I learn new things or brush up or confirm the things I already know. I tend to write like an article on a subject; but written as poems. Kind of not really appealing to majority of the poets, honestly speaking.

Marilene, so happy my contests inspire you, I research also when I write a poem and sometimes mine are like a history lesson, that some consider not poetry, so you are not alone ~Constance

Thank you so very much, Constance, for my placement in your poem. I really enjoyed writing for it. I had done very little in that form before, so it was a learning experience for me. Thanks, too, to all who participated.
