    When do we share comments about March contest. This site is confusing.
    Good luck to All. I am a bit disappointed this month. Some of the poems are not appropriate. I noticed some people alter other peoples poems to enter.
    I am not usually a critical person, but this is suppose to be about sharing our beautiful gift of poetry with others. Not about the money, about the connections and respect. There are 5 billion topics to write about. People should always write from their own heart. By the way all my poems have been copyrighted. I have a large collection. I thought it would be fun to share with other poets! Not so sure????

    This was a very hard choice. Good luck to all. If you do not win, please do not take it personal. It is all about what connects to another person the moment they read your poem. Not about Good or Bad poem,,,

      The results of each contest months are typically posted on the 8th of the following month. My guess is that they will be posted sometime later today … hopefully.

    Wishing everyone the best tomorrow. As usual, very tough to select a single favorite/winning poem.

    Personally, I had eleven pinned poem—three were monsters to choose between.
