I am pleased to share this...
The Ireland based website www.hourofwrites.com invited me to participate in the staging launch of their unique concept of bringing poets together.
The first prompt was to write a poem on To the Lions, where the sentence was juxtaposed against the photo of an endearingly innocent Giraffe
My poem was awarded the First Prize...and I also eagerly await the Trophy Pencil that the site is in the process of making for its winners.
Here's the poem. I hope you all enjoy reading it.
