Thank you Jingle and Company and all those who nominated me for this award!
As part of my acceptance, I nominate Liveonimpulse for next week’s award and offer a lighthearted haiku:
Feisty kitten leaps
attacking dog who turns and
growls her discontentment.

Check it out. I received the Poet of the Year Award for 2010. Congratulations to the other winners and runners-up. Thanks to all of you who voted for me. I feel really privileged. The recognition is nice. A special thanks as well to Jingle, who devotes hours of her time coordinating the Poets Rally and tallying votes. Jingle, you do a great job.
My prize: a gorgeous virtual car!
Thank you Jingle for the Perfect Poet Award! I accept by posting this poem and by nominating Tasithoughts as the next Perfect Poet.
Boil, boil, toil and trouble
Halloween’s here and my candy just doubled.
Spooks in the street and witches in the air
All working hard for that Halloween scare.
The kids are ecstatic,
dressed as princesses and ghouls
with plenty of loot to take back to school.
The stories they tell will last them ‘til Christmas,
when Santa and elves will snatch all their business.
I’m strutting out in my Halloween gear,
looking for fun and a small bit of fear.
One night a year we can act like a fool,
Halloween’s here, Halloween’s cool.
