A wonderful email to open on a cloudy Wednesday morning:
The winner of Penable’s 2 poetry competition is….
Victoria Abah said, ‘She brought the poem to life. Love the use of the mermaid and the description of crisp cold water. I know that feeling all too well.’
Congratulations Vanessa! Here is what she wrote that had stunned the judge and me:
By vanessa shields
I know I am part mermaid
when I deep-dive into
the crisp-cold water
of lake erie
my hands stacked
my arms outstretched
my torso curving to meet
the gentle bends of
the sandy bottom
my legs tight-muscled
my feet pointed
the water propelling
my skin slick
Well done for winning Vanessa!

Thanks Tracey!! Big hugs!!!
Congrats V. I thought after getting the award your headline should read: A nice little wine.
I have a cold, yuk, but not THE virus. Things are closed and quiet, except for the noise of the loo paper hoarders. I fear the fight against the virus will go on for some time in North America.
Be well, Mark
lol. chocolate is my wine. 🙂 thanks, mark!
