BEGIN AGAIN: 150 KANSAS POEMS book winners: Holiday Haiku, Loku, KUku, Politiku, Felisku, free verse or rhyme
Yeah, yeah! I know this is two weeks late, but I have the list of winning poets in hand!
First Place goes to:
rockchalker52: congratulations, rock! you win for amount of entrees, bantering within poems and sheer enthusiasm.
jay_lo: in particular for the poem beginning....cup them, the children's......, and for your good sportsmanship, ability to rhyme and humor.
cait48: "The Wild Hunt" is hauntingly beautiful and I will read it again and again.
autie: humor always works for me.
DustyAcres: this is Kansas after all!
riverdrifter: for his astute eye for beauty and his love of Kansas.
ShePrecedes: because I fear I'll be struck by lightning otherwise! (just kidding)
roe: for his support in all poetic endeavors, good nature and his blogs in general.
Ron Holzworth: for writing poetry when he's told me he does not and can not. You outdid yourself, Ron!
lonelane_1: so she won't be lonely through the upcoming snow and ice filled nights.
A special thanks to my friend and fellow poet, Lee Mick, for his help in deciding on the winning poet. Rock is our winner, but Jay_lo came in a very, very close second.
Lee has a poem in BEGIN AGAIN: 150 Kansas POEMS, "Having a Ball" as well as several poems in TallGrass Voices.
