    August POTM Winner

    After a week of reading through and discussing the entries, we've chosen the winner of August's Poem of the Month contest:


    Self Portrait. - Peach_follows


    We felt this was an incredibly well-written poem, with an simple subject presented in a original and creative way. Peach did a wonderful job of keeping the rhyme scheme and rhythm consistent throughout the poem, and her style fit the subject. As the winning entry, this poem will be stickied until a new winner is chosen, linked on the AO homepage, and Peach is invited to be a guest judge for September's POTM.


    I thank everyone who entered for the thought and time you put into your poems, and want you to know it was a VERY tough decision, as many of the poems showed great talent. So don't get discouraged...September's POTM has already started, and I definitely look forward to seeing more of your work.

    **Friendly Reminder: Don't forget to check the "Themes for POTM" thread; entries that don't adhere to the chosen theme each month will not be considered for judging.

    Hmmm what is the matter with you people, not even a congrads? Well I will not shy away from it, personally the poem was very well written and of everything I had to read while judging this was the most thought out. I enjoyed the way she used metaphors and took an artistic approach to describing herself. Kudos ^_^

    O wow! Im sooo..... beside myself. Thank you! Thank you all so much...

    I am really excited to guest judge. My favorite part of this whole experience was reading the work of others.

    Everyone had such original approaches. It was fun getting to see a piece of every participating member. There is so much talent here on AO. I can't wait to see what people come up with for September.

    Yeah, congrats Peach!

    I think you'll make a great judge, seeing how you're an AO poem section groupie.

    Like someone said in your thread:

    Wow, This is probably one of the best works i've seen from you, Peach.

    This is such a unique concept and poem structure!
    Whoever said that must be REALLY wise.


    Thanks to _gwenibe_ for this awesome sig!

    Congrats Peach. I don't remember if I read your poem, so I guess I would be wise to go read it now. . . Whether I did already or not. lol.

    I doubt I had a chance.

    A big thanks to Renn for the sig! THANK YOU!
