Awesome job!


Moving Eastward, we go to Pashtun country to discover verse written from a woman's point of view, even if you are a male poet. So get in touch with your feminine side and provide us with a Tapa.

Second place Round 30 Weekly Oriental Poetry Contest
Edited
Obviously the hokku was too easy because we got nothing but winning poems. Thank you so much for the quality of work submitted.

I did choose 2 hokkus that were very authentic as First Place Winners, but when I was trying to decide the placement of the others I gave up. Each poem was so unique and well written I decided to give everyone an award without a placement.

First Place

"One hokku and eleven rengas"   by Kåre Enga, P.O. 22, Blogville and "⭐ Cicada Songs by Roseille ♥

This is wonderful, Tinker. *ThumbsUpR*
You are all amazing writers. *Trophyg*
Closest I ever got to your area was Vallejo, then breaking NE on I-80 on the way to northern NY. The company I used to work for had quite a few clients from your neck of the woods, though: Healdsburg, Rohnert Park, etc. Enjoy the redwoods!
  •   1 comment
Hi Soldier Mike, Healdsburg and Rohnert Park are Northeast and Southeast of my location, both about 40 minute drive from me. I do live in the heart of the redwoods and can see the Pacific ocean through a dip in the trees. It is a beautiful place to visit if you are ever back this way.

Second place Round 30 Weekly Oriental Poetry Contest

My apologies, time got away from me and I'm late getting this done. This was a difficult round because of the quality of the writing, no one screwed up. It came down to which poems made me feel something.


Congratulations to our Round 72, the Jue Ju , Winners

Though most went for an erotic tone, some more subtle, this poem was poingant and I almost cried.

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
