Winter is not Forever Poetry Contest, please dear poets...<3

Blog Posted:1/20/2023 1:28:00 PM

I have received submissions already, and they are all SO beautiful, but several, though beautiful, are not from a creature's viewpoint of their hope toward spring. I am looking for poems that are written from an animal's point of view (mammals from nature, birds, reptiles...etc), not that of a human's view, nor of any other subject no matter how lovely or moving. I don't want to discard these precious poems that were possibly placed in the wrong contest, but I cannot place them. Just a heads up! :)  <3

Ahh this applies to me. I've done mine from the perspective of talking gently to a creature! I shall relook at this, thank you

gosh, I need to read your rules. I noticed the poem's topic and hopefully will be studying out contests today to give them a try.

Andrea, I too get mixed up sometimes with contests, and I know I've placed poems in contests accidentally by not following the rules quite right. This one accepts all forms, but the subject is simply from a creature's point of view, not a human point of view. I received a few beautiful poems that are not quite an animal's longing of spring. They are so pretty, but just not on the topic :( I am enjoying so many lovely poems, this site is blessed with beautiful souls. I love the poets and their poems so much.
