THE VANILLA KIND OF RAIN THAT YOU ARE!


Blog Posted:11/19/2013 7:45:00 AM


dear me, soupers! ...let me say  i was very impressed with the poems written
for the rain  contest... this was an extremely hard contest to judge as each piece held something unique...

in the end, i chose the ones that made me lose myself in your flavored world,  and
contemplate the meanings behind the lines... those who described rain with a
specific scent like wisteria, mint or cinnamon got biggie points... more than these,  the substance and creative flow worked for me... though  some pieces had nothing to
do with the fragrance of rain, or went a little way off the theme, i was amazed by the polished works as well...

special citations go to FJ Thomas and Jenish S. Anthony for their remarkable gems!...i want to thank you all for the
time and effort that were put into this... you are all top brass on my list!

i’d love to see you again in my new adventure now posted on the contest page...

do hop in, yes?

again, a big round of applause to everyone!

huggs and love...
