I thought I would bring the good news that our very good friend Songbird B (Bev) has won a first prize to the sum of £100 in a Poetry Competition run by United Press.

Background

Bev, who lives in a little Wiltshire village in the UK, has been writing poems off and on all her life. She joined Wiknut on 19th February 2011 and since then has published 228 pages of work which has attracted 247 followers to her work.

Apart from writing poems, our friend is also an accomplished singer who has performed on many occasions with two other female friends performing under the group name of BePaJu. The group has its roots in jazz mainly, and concentrates on the singing of the old and new classic numbers.

Bev is a keen gardener and photographer too and spends many hours in the garden weeding, tending to her plants, and photographing her many range of different blooms. Among her favourites are clematis, jasmine and a variety of herbs, perennials and annuals too. She has taken many fine close ups of her specimen plants.

Bev has three of her poems published in an Anthology published by United Press, one of which attracted a first prize in a competition. The winning poem is called 'Artistic Impression'. The other poems in the anthology include:- 'The Dance Of Words', 'Brush Strokes' and 'The Voice Of The Sea On A Stormy Night'.

Songbird B's (Bev's) Poem

Artistic Impression.

See my quill, upon the parchment,
let my words paint scenes for you...
As you read them, in your mind,
watch these scenes come into view..

Let me tell you of a sunset,
a picture perfect end of dusk.
Let my words give the impression,
wielding my quill like an artist's brush.

Ten thousand words are at my calling..
One thousand colours they command..
Let me inscribe creatively ,
inspire my art in written hand.

The gift of words upon the parchment,
brought to life by a sharpened quill,
Let their reading give you pleasure..
From the artistic impression they reveal.

Oh Rich, bless you for such great support, and all who have posted too.. Am hoping to start work on my own book of poetry within the near future, but it is only thanks to the support of such dear friends as you all, that I have now gained the confidence and belief in my poetry to do so..I can't thank you enough, but it truly comes from the heart..XXX \0/
