FEBRUARY CONTEST WINNER !!

First let me say there were no losers. All who entered did their best and it shows up in the level of their entries.
But there can only be one announced winner and this month it is Judyanne for her heart touching poem "Doors". I hope you will all join me in congratulating her and take the time to read her entry below.

DOORS by judyanne

When you were just a little child
you left your door part open
so I could always watch you
if ever you were frightened
I could quickly cross the threshold
be right there
and you would be consoled

the doorway to heaven
is not mine to pass through
for now
but, with love and determination
you left it ajar
so I could still see
when I have fear
where you are

Feel happy for you...though you need no inspiration ..poetry being so much a part of you..this will perhaps drive you even further amd set them as bench marks for the likes of me..

I called the race correctly. I could have made a fortune. We need a betting director.

i withdraw from the contest OF OPENING DOORS I ain't a dooorsman

my teacher Judy
has already won*
she is the best
even heaven upon her shoulders does rest
what of a door you speak
where are the rest
the doors of humanity
open wide have been rendered bereft
by Judys love and heavenly caress
* ALL HAVE ALREADY ENDORSED HER AS THE BEST
Judge who?
judge do you still want to????
LOVED SAID IT LONG AGO STAN

A well deserved winner I'd say. Congratulations xxx

Love to you :)
