a writing by VoicesNet News

Congratulations to Dave Varnum of the UK!

The January 2012 VoicesNet.com Monthly Poetry Contest winner is the poem called:

"Dying Ember"

JUDGE COMMENTS: "A hauntingly beautiful poem that seems to come straight from the heart to question the loss of a culture in touch with nature and the world around it. From the mighty plains to the eagle on high, the question is asked in the last verse..."

It is well constructed with excellent rhyme and rhythm and it flows effortlessly from start to finish.

Congratulations to the author of this wonderful poem.

JUDGE COMMENTS: "A very poignant poem that says so much with just a few words. The poet has skilfully captured the tragedy that is The Street Child. Well done!"

Congratulations to the author of this sad but lovely poem.

Dave is eligible for a $25 paypal payment when a paypal email address is provided.

All poems were read by three independent judges. Each judge could reward a star to a poem that was read if they thought it was a top poem. All poems that received one or more stars from the judges were then classified as finalists. The Finalists were then read and reviewed again in a final round of judging to then choose the top poems.

Thanks again to everybody, espeially the contest director.

Great Job!
