OoOOoh... I LIKE this one! Very much indeed! In fact, I do believe I shall read it again...


... Woooooowww... wowie, "W.O.W.", that's SO GREAT! DEFINITELY one of your best! And even though I hate to lower the stand of your Piccolo poems... I'd actually have to say that this IS the best. ^_^** Besides, it REMINDS me of Piccolo, when he was training Gohan in the wilderness, and he did that kawaii temple-lifting thing, and and and... ~Rambles on for hours on end~

And YEAH! ^_^ This poem has a great feeling to it, admittedly, and is far better than many of mine... gotta love it. I think I shall proceed to add it to favorites. ^_^** "A rose cannot be a rose, without a thorn in its defense" - I think I like that line best... though all of them were rather good. ~Grins~ So keep up the good work!

As for Poetry.com? I dunno if it's a TOTAL Hoax... but I think it is a little. Last year I entered and was a "semi-finalist" and this year I entered and was again a "semi-finalist" ... ALSO, both years I was evidently entered into a volume called "The Sound Of Poetry" which was supposedly "your poem being featured along with 32 other poets!" - Which SOUNDS like I'm a special one person out of 33 that gets it, and that's all but... ... tough luck. I think they do that for a lot of people. BUT I DON'T KNOW! So don't take my word on it. ^_^**

... And uh... I dunno why I entered both years. ^_^** Probably because I enjoy getting mail, lol...

Anywho, this poem is good enough to deserve the award! ~_^

It is a hoax, you unimaginable fooooooool... sorry about that. Everyone who enters a contest at peotry.com is put in as a finalist, and they say that they are putting you in a book... but have you seen the book in any stores?

I really like the poem, but don't get so exited about the contest...

The imagery is exquisite. You can actually FEEL the hot air and see the sloping dunes and the sweeping winds...Great job. ^_^

Quite flawless and perfect in both your imagery and irony at the end. Mo secret why you're a finalist. Seems like everyone writes poetry better than I do.

The lines 'a rose cannot be a rose...a desert cannot be a desert...' are probably the centre of attention in this poem, to me that is. And your paradox of atmosphere and setting here is, if I may say, rather visual. And the last line just makes the entire thing more ironic. Nice job.
