Few Entries So Far
So far two poets have each entered five poems, so ten poems are in the running. This is the second annual Eye On Life Poetry Contest. Last year poets followed much the same pattern – a few at the beginning, more later on, most of them in the final two weeks before the January 31st deadline.
The nice thing about a new contest like this one is that the odds of winning first prize are so much better than on more well established contests. And it’s nice for us, too, since it is much easier to judge a hundred poems than it is to judge a thousand.
So today was a nice, relaxed day – about thirty degrees Fahrenheit here in Massachusetts. My wife and I went to see my daughter sing Christmas Carols in the local business district with the high school Honors Choir. They are fun to watch since they are so obviously having fun making music.
