The following was posted this past Tue., but voting is now underway! You can find the poll HERE! The poll for this particular match-up between me and Buffy closes shortly after 9:30pm EDST, so please click the link and vote for your favourite!
…and so am I!
I just wanted to send a quick post about this year’s MMPoetry2014 competition, of which I am again a part. Each year, Ed DeCaria at Think Kid, Think! hosts a bracketed poetry competition similar to that famous March college basketball tournament which is full of Madness, but which we can’t speak of by name due to potential infringement of a registered trademark.
OK, so anyway…I submitted my First Round poem last night (along with 32 other ‘authletes,’ as we’re called) and voting is set to begin sometime after 9am Central Daylight Time (US). Voting for the other 32 authletes (there’s a total of 64 of of us) will follow. Each of us is given a word (mine is “appendage”), and then we have 36 hours to craft a children’s poem using that word.
I’ll be sure to post the link to the voting page I’m sharing with the esteemed Buffy Silverman, my fellow Poet’s Garage member who has written poems for Ladybug, Spider, Cricket, Highlights for Children, and Know magazines. The number of magazines I’ve had children’s poems published in: uhh…zero.
This might be a quick competition.
Nevertheless, it’s a lot of fun, so be sure to check back here or follow me on Facebook and Twitter to get updates and links – and get ready to vote for your favourites!

Good luck with this year’s tournament. I can’t help picturing a certain pachyderm hitting the verjuice. Can’t wait to see your poem.
Thanks, Janet! The competition is a lot of fun…sesquipedalianistically speaking, of course.
