|Hello again everyone! I'm back with a whole new list of words for you! This challenge is based on the use of a single word chosen from the list below in your poem. The poem does not have to be about the meaning of the word, it merely has to contain the word exactly as it is listed. This, being the only guideline, we should be afforded a potpourri of poetry. I will host this weekly challenge but the winner(s) of each week's challenge will have the honor of providing the words for the next challenge. So, let's see what our magic pens can do!
Well folks, seems we had a ghost writer win in the last challenge! A poem won that had absolutely no words to it! Our resident cowboy, Highnoon (Larry) had posted the wrong poem in error and both he and I did our best to remove it from the challenge but to no avail. We are saddened his blank poem was chosen to win because that somehow cheapens the meaningfulness of this challenge. There were so many wonderful poems written that could have won and, not to forget also, how good the poet would have felt being chosen a winner for his/her efforts! With no other recourse, Larry has graciously given me a list of words for this round of Potpourri. So, with a little black cloud over the last challenge, I am hoping for a brighter outcome this time around and without further ado, here is his choice of words.....1 integrity... 2 honesty... 3 truthfulness... 4 sincerity... 5 click ... 6 group ... 7 skillful...8 best... 9 vote... 10 deserving... 11 contemplate... 12 consider... 13 weigh... 14 champion... and 15 self-examine.
Thank you, Larry, and I do apologize! I know how embarrassing this has been for you.
Good luck to one and all! Pam :)
