Hannelore, I commend you for what you did on the 'poetry in motion'. You impressed the heck out of me. Fantastic Job!
3 cheers for you!
A hard decision indeed. They are all great works of art.
Do you have a voting deadline?

Aw shucks...thanks everyone. But really, I had a ball creating the site. To tell you the truth, I think it's hard to decide too...but one poem did make me read it twice...so I guess that's the way I decided.

Hannelore, once the contest is over, are you going to put names with the poems? If so, I am waiting to link so the women who wrote these heartfelt poems will get credit.

I only had time to jump in and email my vote, the other night. I've reread the poems and can only say WOW. You did do a wonderful job hanni... and it was so hard to pick, but one did stand out for me too. I don't even know why I bothered - the others were so good.

Blast!!! Blast!!! Blast!!!

It just occurred to me that I won't come to know of the outcome until the 23rd. In anticipation of the chosen poem, my congratulations to the writer, whoever it may be, and a job well done to Hannelore.
