Thread: "Sand" Voting Thread

    "Sand" Voting Thread

    Welcome to another "kid in the candy shop" voting poll! Please read all of the entries, and then proceed to cast votes for as many delicious pieces as you see fit, but you may not vote for your own work. If you vote for yourself, your entry will be disqualified.

    All entries are eligible for critique which should be posted in this thread save for critique on entries that are posted on the secure board. I've created a thread for those who wish to critique secure entries which may be accessed here. Please be mindful of where your critique is being posted so that the first rights of entrants are not compromised.

    I remind everyone that all critique, and responses to it, must be directed solely at the work. Any comments that veer into the personal will be promptly removed upon discovery and will result in appropriate moderation for the poster. There will be no baiting, flaming, or trolling in this thread, or its partner on the secure board.

    You have ten days to make your selections. This poll will close on July 25th at 7pm EST.

    Best of luck to all entrants!

    And remember, it's all you can eat, so choose as many as you desire!

    Please also remember that once the poll has closed, and the results have been officially revealed, you may post your entry on either of the Poetry boards for additional feedback.

    I went with just my # 1 choice. I am old. Only one grand prize from me. It's an antiquated idea, I know. Few seem to want to make tough choices today. As I've said to my family for decades (and here), "Don't make a decision by not making one." This trait has become noticeably prevalent to those of us who've lived into our 70+ years. That is the reason the poems receive many reads from me . . .to evaluate for certain criteria. I know they're just poems, but they are important to each writer, so important to me to do my best.

    missed the boat this month (dashed by the sands of time)
    fact is, nothing came to me - so I'm jealous of all these imaginative interpretations....

    If you are a writer, reach a reader
    If you are a fighter, teach a leader
    If you are a lover, touch a leper
    If this has helped you, thank you, reader

    If you can read this, teach a thinker

    Is anybody doing critiques? Just don't want to be the only one if I do post a comment or two.
