IT'S A WOW KIND OF EPIPHANY !


Blog Posted:8/2/2013 12:39:00 PM


 it took me days to judge this as the  poems received were all stunning... aside
from the emotional appeal, originality, and assonance of the works posted, i
had to choose those which captured brilliantly the essence of epiphany as
described on the contest page...

 and now, just a few words for the winners:

 Giorgio V: a sensitive awakening of a moment in time, painted perfectly in words and rhyme...

 Annalise Brigham: your lines speak of pained awareness rich in tone and poetic mood.. sublime!

 ‘’Glimpses of Epiphany”: beautiful entry rich with imagery and insight.. can’t forget the  'Christmas lights’ thrown in to enhance the whole piece...

 Carrie Richards: Wonderful undertones of child –adult realizations using  a stirring contrast approach , no words wasted here!

 Russell Sivey: a moving scene where along your lines, ‘something hit me..’  very transformational...

 Julie Heckman:  the serenity  of nature  amidst the boom of life is so well scribed; an
epiphany indeed...

 Seren Roberts:  a solid grasp that one’s demise is fate’s right makes this defined entry so distinct...

 * to Debbie Guzzi, Joe Flack, Constance, Troy Greece, Richard Lamoureux,
Olusegun Arowolo, Ellie Dapne: your written paintings allow me to feel
your journeys through striking discoveries...
 *special citations go to Harvey Liege for contributing his unfinished dramatic image
that is not intended as an entry,

and Godwins Piyo's amazing collage of past icons that went over the 26-line
requirement... a must-read!
 thank you all for being champs in my heart! What a greeeat day!


see you in my new adventure which is being posted NOW!


hugggs and love!
