Some of you might have read a poem I wrote last year titled ‘Caught in Loneliness’. Well, a few days after posting it here, I submitted it to a contest on poetry.com. I did not anticipate anything. I didn’t get any feedback for that for a long time.
They took their time and surprised me last week. I got few impressive e-mails, and to add on to that, few mails waiting at my previous address which I didn’t care to pick up till last week. Yeah! Keep in mind that I’m careless. I still haven’t given my new address to the phone company and some other places… Hehe..
Anyway, I got a few awards and some more recognitions for that poem.
Editor’s Choice Award – Presented by Poetry.com and International Library of Poets.
Immortal Verses – It’s to be featured on this anthology, deluxe hardbound edition, coming out soon! You could order it online at poetry.com Hehe..
The Sound of Poetry – It has been selected to be recorded in this 33 track, three-CD set, with 1 track for each poem. These 33 poems are selected from all the poems that had won Editor’s Choice Award.
Noble House Poet Fellowship Award 2007 – Not only a certificate; includes a gold pin (24-karat) wow!
The best poems and poets of 2007 – It’s a new book, to be published soon, with 1 page for each of the selected 200 poets. I’ve been asked to write a new poem for that 😉
Distinguished Member – Nominated by the Board of directors and advisory committee of the International Society of Poets.
By the way, that poem is in ‘Poets Choice – Rate my Poem’ contest now. You could go and vote here.
I don’t find that poem so great and it’s been a while since I lost interest in writing poems. What the heck! Maybe I should give another try.
P.S. Hope you wouldn’t mind typos and grammatical errors. I’m in a rush 🙂
