Do yourself a favor and read the entries of Round 70 especially those of the winners. You will be reading some really good poetry, very diverse in focus but all well worth your time. Oh and maybe take a little more time to write a response to the poet to let them know how their poem touched you. After all, that is the real win for all of us, knowing someone read our work and was touched by it.

Congratualation to our Round 70, the Tanaga, Winners

I've fallen in love with far away exotic lands,
                                        images of elephants and slow dark eyes
beckon me to write a romantic Hindi Doha,
                                        join me in invoking soft exotic sighs.
