Hello Soupers there a few entries to my contest already, thank you for them, but one poem has one word that is two syllables, as I am judging blind and have no idea who it is could I suggest to those who have entered go back and re-read and re-count as it would be a great shame to have to reject it for the sake of one word....Many Thanks...

I am reading somewhere down here that poem is in violation. I have not done the contest yet, but in my opinion, poem can be either one or two syllables. the way I always pronounce it is "pom"

David, maybe if you could simply share the word you are refferring to it might help the author discover if it were their error? Thanks ... not that I am one of the authors, mind you ... keep it blind!

Seren - you might be right about the word "poem" being in violation - but, if the time stamps are right, my poem was posted AFTER Dave's blog - so there is probably another culprit lurking in our midsts. Thank for the heads up - by the way.
