Thank you everybody.

Mlou, you did submit an entry after all! Good for you. As I was reading them, I was trying to guess whose was which and the only one I could figure out was funkywriter3's - because she said she had a prose poem. I thought all the entries were really well done.

was kind of fun (even with the confusion...). :) was really nice to see something get active around here since it's been a bit slow moving lately. maybe we can do another one in a month or so.

There were some really excellent poems here. I'm proud of all the WT poets for getting their pens into action!

mslover, I, too, want to thank you for running this. It's frustrating being the whipster and nagging people, first to enter, then to vote. I appreciate your taking it over SO MUCH! Thank you, thank you.

I agree with you mlou. I thought the poems were of very high caliber. kudos to my fellow writers on WT.

Mlou, I knew that was YOUR poem that was so thematically like mine, down to the title ... :lol:

I know, Lilac, I did have to smile when I read it. We just can't help thinking alike, can we? Are you my missing twin? No, you're not ancient enough! lol
