Thanks to all who entered last week's contest. The winner of the Valentine's haiku competition is....drumroll, please....
Glynis Smy (visit her blog HERE). Congrats to you poet/author lady. Lovely work, and oh what a killer last line! Love when a poem's form mirrors the message. The end words -- promise, kiss, farce also make a secondary form, if you've got a wierd brain like mine. Here's Glynis' winning haiku:
