Awards

As you may have guessed, this is a page for my awards (mostly [exclusively] from thursday poets rally). Along with them are links to the post that got the award, the giver of the award and a nomination for the next one (if applicable).[Note I have not back tracked these awards, the first one starts on 21/04/2011, also even thought there is only one nomination it does not mean I have not made others). Also this will become a place for all the snippets of poetry that don’t deserve a post to themselves (being too short) so its not just me going “look at me I’m a great poet” because, frankly, I’m not.

Outstanding Poet of National Poetry Month Award

I find it funny that I was even able to get this seeing as its for the American national poetry month, and I’m English, but I’m not going to complain. Thanks goes to Jingle (http://promisingpoetscafe.wordpress.com/) for hosting the award, thanks to the 11 who vote for me, and congratulations to all the others who got the award.

you class me as a fellow poet
when my voice stumbles
where your’s dances
my word crumbles
where your word pulses
I stare into the dark and scream
where you look at the light and sing
your words beam
and my words sting.
