Poetry Contest Results

Well folks, the time has come for me to make a decision on the best poem submitted in the contest. This was really hard. All of the entries were well done and I enjoyed reading them very much. I wish I could declare all of you winners and move on, but that would not be fair either.

First let us review the entries:

The fingers of limbs
direct the hopeful at Time's
extended windows.

Debi Cates

------------------------------------------------

'Tis the time of hope
the time of reminding someone
of silent windows
of naked limbs
apparently, hope serves no one

Anonymous
------------------------------------------------

The fingers of time
Silence
The simple naked hope
Of limbs
Extended
In the direction
Of anyone,
Extended
At no one


Rima Barrage

----------------------------------------------------

At the window, the silence of
naked limbs, fingers extended
with no apparent direction
reminds anyone, simply:
Time serves hope, else
hope serves time.

Jon

---------------------------------------------------

Naked limbs with fingers extended
Direction apparent.
Was anyone at the window?
No hope of anyone at the time,
Silence, the simple reminder.

Georgie

----------------------------------------------------

The silent fingers of limbs, extended,
are reminders of times direction.
The window of hope serves with apparent simplicity.
Should anyone serve silence else it extends?
No! Time was the hope

Donna Elio


As you can see, they are all excellent. So here, with a heavy heart, is my pick for the best poem.....

At the window, the silence of
naked limbs, fingers extended
with no apparent direction
reminds anyone, simply:
Time serves hope, else
hope serves time.
