Cindy, your poem was fabulous in the contest and I was really taken away with it. Your images that you made me think of were beautiful and this poem was a close tie to second just to let you know! :] The flow of the poem was incredible and you seemed to know which words would be most effective in such a small piece! :]
All in all, I was impressed with your poem from start to finish and I am really glad that you gave my competition a try! Hope to see some more tankas by you in the future! Great job and keep writing.
