Most of you have probably heard by now that the winners of the Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: Love Poems and Poetic Prose Poetry Contest were announced last Friday. I was over the moon to be an honorable mention. Congratulations to the winners, Virginia Mateias, Ingrid Wilson, Eric Daniel Clarke, D. Wallace Peach, and Timothy Price. They were incredible pieces of poetry and I’m sure you’ll agree If you have read them already. If you haven’t gotten the chance to read them yet, enjoy them here: The Winners Of the Poetry Contest Woman: Splendid and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic Prose

I am humbled to have been named as an honorable mention in the contest, alongside Joni Caggiano, Jeff Flesch, Karima Hoisan, and Carrie Yang and I know you will agree if you follow their sites and read their poetry and work. They all inspire me daily in my writing. A BIG thank you to Gabriela Marie Milton for creating and hosting this incredible contest.

My poem was inspired by Gabriela’s poem called Self Indulgence and to be quite honest the blind date I set my daughter up on which many of you were privy to in one of my posts. As you know by now, it didn’t get off the ground but hey, it spurred my writing along with Gabriela’s untouchable talent, which was a blessing in disguise.

Here is the beginning of my poem Chance Meeting….

We sat at the coffee shop and chatted,
eyes riveted drinking in the rose hips of winter in February,
where children run in the snow.  
We escape from hardships and cold.  
Electricity between us like thunder of the night.
Steam escaping… 
sent shivers up my spine.

I would be delighted if you would visit Gabriela’s site, Short Prose, and read the rest of my poem, and the poems of the other honorable mentions. Thank you!

πŸ’Ž There is a Correction that NEEDS!!! To Be Made in The Way We Financially Raise Kids EveryOne; at its Heart is A Framework for Children to Freely, Financially Express ThemSelves EveryBody and with The Festive Season in Full Swing please remember that Kids Mimic Us, http://www.ericberne.com …the Creative Pursuits like “Poetry” ARE a Perfect Way To Educate, at The Same Time Education about The Importance of Budgeting or Making Obscene Amounts of Cash by Exploiting The Financially Vulnerable is also Valuable depending on How We Parentally Perceive Cash; if We Don’t Get Our Heads Out of The Money and Materialism Swamp We Get Sucked In and There’s No Going Back…except via The Grave where Our Hard Earned Finances ARE Utterly UseLess; except to Pay Funeral Bills, provide Inheritance et al which (WITCH!!! πŸ§™ πŸͺ„πŸ§Ή) just Continue To Serve The Generational Money and Materialism Cycle at THE COST of Our Souls, Our Soulfness and Trust in The UnSeen until We SEE (Soulful Emotional Energy) It…

πŸ’Ž A Child who is Encouraged Creatively like “Poetry” is More Powerful than a Child Raised with an IMPOSSIBLE, INSANE Set of INANE, IMPOSED, IGNORANT, FINANCIAL DEMANDS EveryOne; yet The More Powerful Child is Also More Humble and Much Happier Than The Child who is Conditioned in to Monetary Madness and Materialism EveryBody, especially during Festive Seasons, http://www.ericberne.com

Congratulations on your Honorable Mention. After reading many of the other entrants’ poems yesterday, it’s easy to see you are among amazing company and it’s a testament to your excellence that you can compete with them.

(I, on the other hand, am usuallly on the ‘dishonorabe mention’ list in whatever I compete in:)

Though I already feel it, on Thursday when reviewing the list of things we (i’m) are thankful for, there will be a special sentiment of thanks for you and my good luck in finding your blog.

Thank you for all your hard work.
