  1. WOW.. that is a very good thing… CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL NOMINATED.

    Ji, I am going to post a few posts for the Rally for my own entries…. I will post a link below my post , linking back to you, ok?

    I love you!

    hugs
    shakira

      1. Jingle, I reread the nominations.. I do not see my name there meaning that I do not have to rally for myself but for others.. correct? I am not mad at all as you are one of the wisest person I know. I love you! hugs,shakira… I need to go to the hospital for Jasmine’s tests.

  2. hi dear xxxx do we do this in private? or just post here?? it is always best to nominate in private so u get the right vote in, I know its for fun but please let me know how we vote xxx

  3. I also would like to nominate Gerardine, Jingle, Brian, Dustus, Shakira. I don’t know how to get their links could someone help me? Please with ice cream on top.

  4. I Nominate, Doubtful poet, for being a great rhymer just like me. Thank you jingle for creating a way for Beth and I to meet truly grateful. Is there going to me another rally this Week? of so count me in.

  5. Ehem! certainly being nice to lots of people has its advantage.. no offence meant but i could imagine this is all done in good fun perhaps jingle? cos voting for friends or even going around garnering for votes certainly do not make one the best poet.. anyway my vote goes to these few whom i thought is very committed to writing excellent poetry- and the winners are (drumroll)- jingle, shakira, wordwand, kseverny, ishabelle and trisha!

    1. Hi fiveloaf,

      sorry to butt in like this..

      but i guess we all know that picking out the best poet is quite an impossibility since poetic styles, motifs are all different..at best, I guess this is a good initiative to encourage people to write better poetry, don’t u think?

      just my two cents on this, no offence intended..n hope no offence taken too!

    2. fiveloaf:

      so far, I did not email or comment to ask poets to vote for me, will not do…
      I did not see anyone else doing it, in this world, nothing is perfect, noble prize winner, do you agree?
      Voting for president of the U. S. A., everyone agrees?
      I only need 50% of poets supporting this idea..so far, I assume that I have 80% or above poets supporting it…

      Writing perfect poems is not enough, mingling with a positive and encouraging community is important…You are valued and welcome back any time…
      Best wishes.
      Thank you for the nominations.

  6. Dear Jingle how are you,fine I hope.Just a little fun there that’s how I use to start all of my letters 😀 😀 So we can nominate 15 poets good

    I’m not eligible for the March award– since I was only on 2 March rallies, but I do invite y’all to visit my site and get to know my poems. I have posted a poem a week for 77 weeks, mostly sonnets but also other forms like decima, rondeau, and villanelle, and I post a photo and thought every day. And I’ll be around for the rally for awhile to come.
