AGAIN, MY APOLOGIES, PLEASE KNOW THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE NEGLECTED MY RESPONSIBILITIES UNLESS SOMETHING WAS SERIOUSLY AMISS. THANK YOU.
    As others have sometimes reminded me - real life comes first.
    I hope you enjoy a full and speedy recovery, CD.

    Hello all, please forgive my 2am panic for sleeping through the closing of the challenge. While I used the 27th as the closing date for the poll in my post, I neglected to call attention to it, as every in December, we’re observing the 12 days of Christmas. I’ve since amended the poll post as follows:

    Given the fact that this time of year is so busy, and occasionally boozy, we are going to honor the twelve days of Christmas and allow the poll to remain open for two extra days to give the busiest of us additional time to cast their votes.

    THIS POLL WILL CLOSE ON DECEMBER 27th, 2020 AT 9:30pm EST.


    My sincere apologies to everyone again, especially to Eve and Mr. Grimes for not being here when I should have been. It’s been a challenging eight days, but the tide has turned. Christmas came early for me this year. Appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding. Group hug!

    Hello Chesters Daughter,

    not a problem at all, I'm glad the tide has turned, that's good news. It was no problem, I have no technological knowledge but I met a friendly philistine that did . Everything was fine. Take care mate. All the best PG

    I will likely be asleep when the poll closes, so if I don’t immediately create the winner’s thread upon the poll closure it’s not because I forgot, or am in a coma, or dead, or have developed dementia. I was going to set an alarm, but I don’t think my body will be happy about that, doc stressed rest. I am a completely incompetent disaster this month, and I apologize again. Kindly resume sending poisonous arrows of disappointment in my direction for they are certainly my due. See you all in the morning.

    Every time... EVERRRYTIME!!! I tell myself that I am going to ONLY vote for the ONE poem that makes me feel something... emotional... that ONE poem that speaks to my heart... problem is ... the poets of WF are exceptional.... soooooo I guess that is why we are allowed to vote for more than ONE.... yes??
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Ah Fire, you have a mothering soul and sharp eye for talent.
    Poetry is what brings meaning into life when you are feeling down.
