My Contest Entries
Here are links to some of the poems and articles I entered in an online contest this month:
- Black Lacquered Box
- Poetic Form: Sapphic Verse
- The Legacy of Trees
- Observations Upon My Missing My Train
- How To Put Music In Your Poetry
Participating in the contest has been challenging and fun. Usually I only write poetry when moved to do so, which is fairly often, but I usually aggressively avoid explaining my poetry if I can help it. For this contest, each entry had to contain a mandatory explanation. I handled that requirement as creatively as I could. All in all I would say that although it has been a lot of work, I learned a lot and enjoyed the process.
