    Dear Madam, you are such a senior poet with huge experience of life and poetics. It is not for a child like me to comment on your craft. I am sure many people in PoemHunter will be happy if a senior poet like you wins! ! Wish you all the best for the contest. But you cannot predict anything in an Online Contest like this - which can be easily manipulated by cyber savvy poets! ! (See my poem Poem Hunter Contest Final just to have an idea of how a contest can be manipulated...) (Report) Reply

    So it's been said that we are all light beings, created from light and thus beauty radiates from within the soul of those who believe in such things spreading light to others, as in this poem....... (Report) Reply
