    Genuine comparison of poet's output with the mysterious song of the Nightingale is made in an extreme philosophical unique way. Congratulations. (Report) Reply

    This is beautiful and perfectly expressed. I love the way it flows with a loving, peaceful energy. I especially love the line poet makes it possible to reveal universal truths from trivialities. -Breathtaking. (Report) Reply

    THank you for contacting me Ramesh and I am glad of your win, your poem is lovely, but I cannot say that I am enamoured at the idea of voting for a work based on popularity, a poem should be judged on its composition its ideas breath of imagery and not on some American triviality of congeniality. It is a lovely work, but I cannot participate in such a contest that I do not believe in. Sorry (Report) Reply

    I agree with Bri Edwards. I am happy for the winners but I think poetry contests should require pure poetry not pure popularity. just opinion... (Report) Reply

    Or perhaps they're all related

    We remain the Underrated.
    It will take a thousand Poets
    Just to help you stay afloat
    But nothing beats the satisfaction
    To receive an honest Vote.

    Poetry is not the magical expression but is a mirror of your life and thoughts throughout your life
    to be enjoyed and by bygones of people passing through this temporary trip to where we really want to be. Love the Pup (Report) Reply

    perhaps i am not giving this poem a chance. well, for a moment i was going to say i did not read it through. BUT i believe i really did, though i may have been rushed by my desire to finish it and go take a walk etc. i thought it lacked flow, conciseness, rhyming, and humor....none of which are necessary i suppose. i agree with some comments that it is important that the poem impress the author, and it obviously impressed quite a few people besides the author, but it was not my cup of tea. that said, congratulations.
    hopefully all who entered the contest were pleased with their own work. and the contest, in my opinion, was not set up in a convenient fashion. i did not submit a poem, and i don't think i read most of them....probably comparatively few of them. i did find some that i felt were outstanding, so thanks poets and poemhunter.
    as for the voting: one comment says, in part, It is not proper in India nor America to ask, solicit, votes in contests. well, there may be some contests in which this is true, but you could not say that of political contests! and i don't see anything wrong with a poet soliciting votes. buying votes would be unethical and in this contest their could definitely be a great advantage to some poets who have the knowledge and ability to solicit. the prizes, i believe, could have been spread out a bit more so more poets could have won. hopefully those who did not win will enjoy whatever pleasure the contest brought and not be discouraged from writing and competing again. :) another poem, which did not win, which also deals with the subject of poets/poetry is the one by my friend valsa george. i recommend it: When Poetry Haunted Me (Report) Reply

    It is not democratic at all to send me 3 messages when i told you after the first one that i'm not interested in reading this idiocy. Get over yourself. (Report) Reply
