Dear Diane,
Thank you for sharing your exquisite poem and congratulations for a well deserved 1st place. Your imagery, even without your beautiful picture, could stand alone-- it is so excellent and candid. It 'pulled at my heart' and shaped my thoughts.
Beautiful and intelligent work!
Deborah

Well my friend I can see why this one won. It is soothing and dreamy and love the metaphor the sea. Your feelings come through loud and clear and I hope that you will find this kind of love again. There is another, not the same but, maybe even better. Glorious presentation and music very nice indeed!

Beautiful! xx debs

    I really could not believe that I won this contest because when I woke up in the morning I was like in fourth place or something! So I was quite surprised by the time I got off work! I?m so glad you like this one too! xoxo

Your poem is beautifully done and so touching to the heart of the reader. I especially like the refrain. The artwork fits this well. And I must comment on the color scheme--excellent choice. No one ever dies that remains within the heart so dear.

    Yes so true! I don?t think that anyone you ever truly love is ever not loved after that. Things may change or life move in, but once loved - always loved. Thank you for taking time to appreciate it. Sometimes I think writing isn?t all about how ?Well? one writes as how well one can move the human heart! :). xoxo

Your poem is so very appealing on all levels: the presentation, the music, but above all the sentiments expressed.
My favourite parts are: 'Not outside but in here
Where the sea meets the land
And love soothes the fear'
and also the loving comfort of the last lines: 'So when the winds do cry of cold My love will be your Spring '

    Thank you! Much love wrote this poem! One of my great ones, but timing just wasn?t right for us. He inspired many pieces I have written. Just blessed to have known him. Appreciate your encouraging response to this :) xoxo

    Deep love often triggers beauty.
    John Ruskin, a noted art critic of early last century, said something which I have remembered:
    "When love and skill combine, expect a masterpiece."

Love this soothing, romantic poem. The picture is gorgeous and I wish I was there on that beach right now (It would be even better if 'Mr. Right' were there with me.) LOL It's not going to happen. However, maybe that lets me doubly appreciate a writing like this one. :-)

I do believe we were meant to have a partner to live this life but it doesn't actually happen for everyone. Your poem speaks to that fact and more.
If a true love doesn't find us, then we can look to the sea and land and find love with God and nature. Beautiful words, artwork and . . .music.

    Yes, sometimes true love finds us, but timing isn't right. This is the case with the one who inspired this poem unfortunately :( but i am blessed to have experienced such feelings for him. :) thanks for reading and leaving your wonderful comment! xoxo

This meets the contest requirements beautifully as you deliver a lovely expression of love. It is clever to use a Lyrical Poem as those are so infrequently offered here - I hope the strategy works well for you. Good luck in the judging and thank you very much for sharing it.

Very beautifully written. I love the poems about the water or shore, it always speaks to me of romance. The picture you chose for your poem is beautiful too.
