An Update on a Poem a Day in February

Today I called my granddaughter and asked her if she would help me choose the best Valentine poems/rhymes. Any format or non-required. I told her that I knew she is a writer as I have watched her writing over the years and she is a good writer.

Then I asked if she knew about poetry and rhyme. She said she loves it and she would be happy to help me narrow down my list. The end date and time for the Valentine poems/rhymes is February 14, 2024, at noon.

The first contest prizes are in the mail. We had a rhyming haiku contest and a rhyme contest, for a total of 6 winners. I had a friend who has a master's degree in poetry select the haiku winners. My husband, who rhymes all the time selected the rhyming winners.

Then we have some honorable mentions that will go into the book at the end of the month that I helped to select.

It is difficult for me as I know all the entrants. And I want everyone to win.

A couple of times a day I encourage others to post a poem/rhyme, or submit something for the contest. There are 4 contests in the month. I also put different formats out for others to try. I respond to most with poetry/rhyme or at minimum emojis.

Examples of poems/rhymes to follow:

February 1-2, 2024

The photo above reminds me of my mother

She was like no other

A pair of underwear on her head

it kept her hair in better she said!

Here comes Brandon with the same

he was copying Grandma, that was his game

I can still see him to this day and he is twenty-five

so much fun in my lifetime, being alive

~

I have seen the picture above in my family too

but can't remember who

Memory can get in the way

Darn, I say!
