Hi Siva, Emily, for one comes to mind: Much Madness is divinest Sense -- To a discerning Eye -- Much Sense -- the starkest Madness -- 'Tis the Majority In this, as All, prevail -- Assent -- and you are sane -- Demur -- you're straightway dangerous -- And handled with a Chain --   8) Michael (MV)    ...

April Judged by Shara McCallum First Place Drought by Sue Kay Pen Shells Drought raises its head, trumpets another amber sunrise, tusks the earth, charges the faded foliage, tramples, tosses it aside.

"in the moog"

 
Donna

disco diva
singing I feel love ly
high noon where solstice meets with moon:

Summer

from body parts
but there is no last dance
always another song for her

freed voice
