Also, another change for this week I am going to give you two weeks to get your entries in. I'm out for drinks with a friend who just recovering from a v. serious illness on Thursday night and then it's my wedding anniversary on Friday (yes, that's right Friday 13th and it was also Friday 13th when we get wed five years ago up in bonnie Scotland). So, rather than try the impossible and fit everything in, I thought I would postpone judging until Thursday 19th July. Hope it gives you all more time to play and that you will forgive me my indulgences just this once and we will return to weekly after that.
So, let's announce the winner from last week and let you have some delicious words to play with over the next fortnight.
Just one winner this week and I am sure that you will all agree that RR Kovar's poem Cross-Step deservedly takes the crown. Rebecca - I absolutely loved this piece, the rhythm of it, the descriptions, the playfulness and then the final reveal about the fate awaiting the ladies. I am sure that I will be reciting this to myself over the coming weeks and must make sure that I don't slip it in amongst my son's nursery rhymes!
No runner-up this week as I just couldn't choose between the rest of you so do give yourselves a well earned pat on the back for some quality entries :-)
Now I have been having words with the book after throwing up such an awkward trio of words last week. Now I think that I have tamed it this week but I am not sure I shall every see that index finger of mine again! So, fully fed, here are the words which it spewed forth this week:
Remember, you have a fortnight this time, so you have until 9pm (
Hoping that you're all going to rock my world with your fabulous entries over the next fortnight.
