An amazing poetic form that had been the theme of several previous DU competition, where my reading how others were doing it just wasn’t helping me with a way that would work for me. But this time around, I discovered a key to open a door that gave me an answer that this time worked after I quietly rethought what I had not figured out till then.  My two entries in host cabcool’s challenge are, to date, my first two successful attempts, and showed me that I might do even better with practice. The fact of my placing along with a very talented poet who earned the cup, gives one further motivation.

So I hereby thank Cabcool for the amazing oppprtunity with his guidance, encouragement and support.  I thank everyone who contributed their votes, and to the entrants with their renditions of mirrored poetry that helped make this event possible, and...

My enthusiastic congratulations to Russell Snow for his excellent interpretation - well done!

Thanks Jade! I saw that a few of my top favorite entries ended up being yours, so you definitely put up excellent work. I remember this poem being really tough to write and I enjoyed the new form and process. I was initially inspired to write this as I was researching ideas for the Sprache competition, which I didn't enter. I've been to Florida a few times, which means full of flowers. I particularly enjoyed St Augustine on the eastern coast.

Congratulations, russell_snow, for seizing the trophy; and to you, Jade-Pandora, for so worthily sharing the podium.  The field was lusciously thick with virtue, everyone warming well to the genre, planting inspiration with deftness and aplomb.  Thank you for helping to make this a successful venture.

Yours was the challenging yet technically plausible task, judges, in determining primacy and supremacy.  Hail up to you:

Super, super, Admin, for always being ready to take the little efforts of your members and clothe them palatably for public consumption.

You had some rather encouraging and beautiful things to say,  JP, which others, like myself, should find inspiring:

"...this time around, I discovered a key to open a door that gave me an answer that this time worked after I quietly rethought what I had not figured out till then."  This ought to be the modus opedrandus for everyone!

Sincerely
