    You contestant people are so serious about the poetry contest conducted by poemhunter for 2013 that I see people made phone calls and send unsolicited spasm to each other and I am not left alone , but I had never asked any to vote for my poem ‘’unique ‘’ one, let alone to receive or make phone calls and I wonder how many people understood uniqueness of my poem ‘unique’ and its intrinsic and duality in meaning …simply every one went for the author for ‘’I ‘’ but this insinuates for the universe also , the poems which won prizes some are direct copy from the poems of Rabindranath Tagore (1913 Nobel prize winner) and other two are descriptive poetry without deeper meaning or have any significance or insinuations. According to me this poem deserves to be number one and ''Usain bolt '' may be second......take care, , (Report) Reply

    I was delighted to pour over your words, you used your pen as a tool, as an artist uses his rigger brush, painting fine detail as you stir deep emotion with words. A worthy winner. Well done Clifton. (Report) Reply

    A great piece Clifton, A piece, I am sure all writers must reflect upon. Putting themselves up against the best of the best.One part part saying, I'm as good as that, while the other must consider the unworthiness of his own inability..Certainly displaying the heights of ability in this. Well done (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
