The eyes have it finalized

WOW!!! This was a very difficult decision. I would like to thank all who participated. I had to leave some magnificent poems on the cutting floor. A few people did not follow directions and that helped with the final decision. One poem,"Her Eyes" is a perfect example. You guys are a bunch of Romeos. Congratulations to all the winners and to all of the participants. Remember this is only one man's opinion. I'm certain had someone else been judging, any of the entries could have been the winner, that is how great these poems were. Once again I thank you all. I apologize to those who did not make the short list. It was not because your poems weren't good enough. There simply weren't enough placements.

When there are so many wonderful entries it is too limiting to do the premiere contests. I give you credit in choosing the winners Daniel, and not because I got on your winning list this time, but because all the entries were so worthy. Congratulations to all the winners and to the ones I read that didn't make the cut. Some beautiful poems were created for your contest! Thank you for putting mine in the top three. I was thrilled! : )

I BET it was difficult. I saw so many great poems. I agree with Constance. It's better to do the other type of contest in case you have difficulties narrowing down choices! thanks for my win.
