What's Happening In Our Poet's World

Lois J. Funk
I just won the $100 cash prize for the Naani Poem Contest on FanStory! 
 The naani poem consists of four lines of 20-25 syllables.
 My winning poem:

Tender are the tears
of a man who cries,
not for lost love or the absence of love,
but because he loves

Let's senryu

a rubber band
stretches only so far
until it collapses

Susan Campion-

tears slip through
white eyelashes-
life is short

Melissa Russell- 

I'm lost in poetic

Melissa Russell-

atop the steeple's cross
man's doubting spirit

Lois Funk-

ample supply
of bibs, diapers, and monitors
Alzheimer's wing

Lois Funk-

at the casino
the bus people frighten me
I see bus people... 

Alvin Thomas Ethington-

kids so excited
to christen new trampoline
they all jump for joy 

Phillipa Ross-
