Dear DU Poets,
I sincerely apologize for the delay in choosing the winner…….
(I had a long holiday weekend for Eid Al Adha)
lets get down to business then,
Thank you all you guys for your entrees.
I’m sure every one who wants to chose a winner will go through the same emotions I went through.
Because even though the entrees are few, they all are exactly what I wanted to hear from this competition.
Here I have chosen a WINNER and a RUNNER UP...!
And here I describe briefely my view on both poems. ( I know am not an experienced poet. These observations are mainly at the visual aspect of the poem) The Wor(l)d - Ahavati
When I saw the entree, it captured my attention 100%. I loved the image, colours and the abstract shaping a burning wood but actually burning papers (words) it fit your poem perfectly. dEVOLUTION - summultima
I loved the visual, it was calming the eyes yet with a powerful message. The visual accompany abstractness of the poem well with the collage layout.
I spent a long time to decide what to chose as a winner. Thats why there is no 2nd runner up
Also Thank you SatInUGal , wallyroo92 , eswaller
I would've used more bright colours and place the text on one side and give a prominent to the concept image. Then you have more space to tell you story and the feel of it
And for AnonymousBystander , DCLXVI_1989 , buddydog , slipalong
I'm sorry there are such beautiful poems, but since this is a visual poetry I cant count them. I hope next time I could help to create the visual poery images.
Thank you guys again...
