So, without further ado, and much grovelling for forgiveness, here is my winner for this week....
.....RR Kovar with Pageant. Rebecca - if I am right this is the second time you have provided poetry for us and grabbed first place. I really liked Pageant, the way it weaved stories within stories. A beautiful mythos unfolding as we discover more about the world, and the fate, that the orphan queen has thrust herself into. Just felt that this one had a wonderful sense of legend about it at this time of the year. A deserved winner.
My congratulations to Rebecca and I will abstain from naming a runner-up this week in my haste to get new words out to all. Needless to say, I have enjoyed reading all the offerings over the past fortnight and look forward to reading more of your delights over the next seven days.
Despite being on the naughty list yet again, my tome still received a Christmas treat, a fresh jacket and I understand the occupant within was warmly received too. Fully fed, my tome is slightly more docile so I shall brave retrieving three words for our pleasure....
