THE CAROUSEL SPINS A WIN!


Blog Posted:8/19/2013 10:53:00 AM
  

  hello, wonderful soupers!.. . thank you very much for all your entries; it was  very hard to judge this typeof contest as the  roundel may be a form of poetry we hardly quill...

still, i got stunning works  from everyone, and for that, i am really grateful!... aside from the proper use
of form, i took into consideration the elements of imagery, poetic device, and overall creativity /substance as my criteria for judging...

so, on this note, those who went deeply into the theme—whatever mood the piece exuded—gained  biggie points... i also considered the possibility that some contestants use English as their second language...

here goes: Giorgio Veneto took the theme a bar higher with a unique approach of a ride that mystifies.

Reason A Poteet gave me a different glimpse of the carousel so picturesque I felt I was there.

Sara Kendrick filled my heart with sensory images reflected within the swirl of her imaginings.

Broken Wings brought a most magical feel into her own world of fancy, and with such ease.

Leonora Galinta ‘s words swayed with childlike wonder;  a sense of glee well imbued.

Russell Sivey ‘s unrelenting glide pulled me in along with an almost perfect use of the form.

Andrea Dietrich invited me no end to romp around with her playful charm of innocence so aptly expressed. 

special citation goes to Tahera Manan her beautiful piece , a roundel in the making..

the rest on the winners’ list kept me dreaming across the landscape of reeling  turns.

as always, you all are champs in my book!..my deepest thanks for hopping in and making me fly high!

cheers, everyone and see you in my next gig... ohh,please be a part of it!

hugggs and poems/love'>love!

Hi Nette! Congrats to your winners and I am glad to see you post here, makes me think you are safe and dry. Pls do continue to stay safe!! Let's continue praying that the rains weaken (it does look like it), so much flooding and people affected already :(. And I agree what you say below (hi Andrea!!), what fun it was to hear you and the others! Even more so to talk to you and Drake! Way to go on his show! Ingat ka ha?? Kakaworry lalo sa mga affected areas, sana sa inyo hindi baha...Sending hugs and warm thoughts!
