Last week we had our second Thursday poetry comp and there were so many lovely poems to choose from.
The topic, chosen by the last winner, Victoria Abah, was water and the contestants had to write a poem related to that, rivers, oceans, waterfalls and everyone’s poem was unique and beautifully written. But one person stood out amongst them all.
Victoria Abah who was also the judge (find her brilliant poetry here: Vicky’s world of poems) had a difficult task choosing the winner and read each poem carefully. She did a fabulous job and now I reveal the winner!
The winner of Penable’s 2 poetry competition is….
Victoria Abah said, ‘She brought the poem to life. Love the use of the mermaid and the description of crisp cold water. I know that feeling all too well.’
Congratulations Vanessa! Here is what she wrote that had stunned the judge and me:
By vanessa shields
I know I am part mermaid
when I deep-dive into
the crisp-cold water
of lake erie
my hands stacked
my arms outstretched
my torso curving to meet
the gentle bends of
the sandy bottom
my legs tight-muscled
my feet pointed
the water propelling
my skin slick
Well done for winning Vanessa 🥇🥇🥇.
Now for the runners up!
