|Today I am overjoyed. According to the dictionary, the word "overjoyed" means: feeling great joy.
I have a wonderful reason for feeling this way. I received this email today:
Dear blainecindy-Hiatus til 09/01 :
was selected earlier this week with seven other poems by the leaders of "Passionate Mindscapes" for review. Two of these poems were deemed the favorites of the group and awarded Awardicons.
Congratulations! Your poem was one of the two chosen. You can see your poem listed permanently in "Invalid Item"
In addition to this poem's recognition, per our weekly review policy, another of your poems will now be added into the new mix of eight for review. We wish you luck! If you have three poems chosen as weekly winners (not necessarily in consecutive weeks), you will receive a "Poetry" merit badge and be enshrined in the "Invalid Item" .
We have created a certificate that we would like to present to your work. We would like for the certificate to appear at the bottom of the work itself, but this decision is up to you. We will never be upset that you chose not to use this certificate, for this is your poem.
Here's what the beautiful certificate looks like:

Donations for our awards can be made to
and are greatly appreciated. Donations will never influence the leaders in their selection of weekly poems nor winners.
Along wit this award, my poem was given an awardicon, plus I was awarded 5,000 gift points, and there's more, which I will describe in the following section.
The rules state that: The chosen poem's poet will automatically have another of his or her poems chosen for next week's review, with what is called the "Passionate Echo" selection. This is done in an effort to discover quality poets from a wide variety of his or her work. Also, past winners will again get another chance to enter the selection pool. This is done with the realization that having a poem selected three consecutive weeks is a monumental task for any poet, however accomplished and talented. The "Fading Memory" selection can be any new poem from any past winner.
Any poet that makes this list with his or her poetry three times will receive a "Poetry" Merit Badge and be designated a "Passionate Mindscapes Sensual Poet."
THEREFORE, I received this email:
Greetings blainecindy-Hiatus til 09/01

Selected as a "Passionate Echo" due to your win in last week's pool of poems.
Over the course of the next week or so, you will receive an official PM review. You can see the list of the current week's poems by going to the group site through this link:

I am so excited; I can hardly wait to have my poem reviewed. I don't really care if I win or not, and that's the truth. I am just so honored that I've been able to even be considered for such an elite program. I didn't even know this program existed until my poem was chosen as a candidate. Yes, this has been so exciting, and I'm thank for people like Patrick and Miss Bee. It is people like them who make Writing.Com shine!
Love and blessings ✞ to all who read this,
