This is a great prayer. I can picture myself learning it off by heart and going out into the garden at the end of the evening, to recite it to the stars, just like in your picture. Thank you! your friend Katherine xx

    Hello Katherine.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I am so pleased you like the poem and see value in it. I read a quote by Sir Isaac Newton that inspired me. "Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who sets the planets in motion."

    Thank you for the beautiful six stars and for going back to even read the poem.

    Robert

A beautiful image and a lovely poem, well written, summarising the essentials of God, the plan of salvation, and simple trusting faith. Best wishes for the contest.

Hello anonymous

Great entry for the A Poem about God writing prompt contest. You followed the rules of the contest well. You used descriptive words and excellent imagery.

A very spiritual poem with a message of God's love.
Good luck in the contest.

Dear Mystery Writer,

Robert will be delighted to see someone using his lovely little Cube 16 poetry form for this contest. *smile* It works well for this situation, especially- for a nice, tight, simple message that you want to convey in a quick, powerful punchy way that folks can remember. I enjoyed!

    Thanks Robyn.

    I appreciate you reading this contest entry. It is the first contest I've entered in 6 months... and the last. You are the only "fan" that has read it.

    Robert

reply by robyn corum on 12-Feb-2021
    Why is that???

    I know it's a pain to enter the contests. Whenever I do so, I know I will be sacrificing reviews. I have an entry in a contest now (shhhh...) that I kinda like (I say that bc I don't always like my stuff, actually) but no one is reading. I hope that may change when the voting begins but I'm not hoping for miracles. Right now it's paying but by the time the voting starts it prolly won't be.

    Since yesterday, it now has four reviews, I think. *smile* But I'm not gonna fuss toooooo much. I know the ropes. My saving grace is that if it places, I'll get my money back and maybe earn a wee bit more - which is CRUCIAL right now. I have to have some money. I am still broke, broke, broke. hahaha I know how to do this. If I had enough money, I'd promote it to the front page and then I'd still get plenty of reviews.

    My question is this - and let's see if you know the answer:

    1.) If I make a post and DO NOT PROMOTE IT - FS still sends a note to my fans. But it only pays 52 cents for the first two readers and 2 cents, thereafter. (Pretty sure that's right.)

    2.) But if it's in a blind contest, regardless of whether I promote it or not, there is no message or announcement sent to my fans.

    3.) If I HADN'T promoted it already (before contest), I know that AFTER the contest, I could have promoted it and FS would have sent the announcement like usual.

    Here's my question:

    4.) Since I DID promote it -but no announcement went out, AFTER the contest, if I buy a new cert and promote it AGAIN, would the messages go out? Do you even understand what I'm asking? AND... do tiny bears have hairy toes???


reply by the author on 12-Feb-2021
    Hi Robyn.

    I can answer your question. Tiny bears do have hairy toes. You're welcome. HAHAHAHAHA

    1./2. I don't believe FS sends an announcement to your fans on blind entry. Every review I get from blind entry is not from a fan. Joe Biden and then sometimes I look at portfolio and find out if a blind entry belongs to someone I'm a fan of. I reviewed a blind entry once and the writer said please don't mention my name this is a blind entry. That's because I saw the entry in their portfolio.

    4. I don't try to promote one after contest because it still disappears. I don't understand why an announcement is not sent to fans when the contest is over. It should be handled like a new entry. I'm down to about 50 fans and most of them don't review my work anyway.

    That's why I don't enter contests anymore, plus, when the committee disqualified one of my entries I gave up on them. I sent them a"sharp response" when they disqualified the dialogue only entry. They never answered. Since then I have seen dialogue only entries that do not include humans only. (mine was a human and a dog speaking to each other) Evidently they just didn't like mine.

    I finished second in the contest I just entered and it will be gone in a couple of hours. I promoted it but it made no difference. I received 11 reviews with about 50 views. It was a "poem about God" contest. I did win 21 dollars in the contest. That's all I got.

    I don't even look at blind contest entries anymore to read what other people have submitted.

    Oh well. That's just me being grouchy again. My wife said that most people get mellow as they get older. I guess I'm just different.

    (*Z*)

A very nicely written poem about God. It has a nice flow and rhyme. God hung the stars, the planets too. From heaven's throne,
majestic view. Very beautiful description of our creator. good luck in the contest. Amazing photo of the stars.

    Hi Joanne.

    Thank you for your wonderful comments about the style and content of my poem. In Job 38:4 God asked Job: "Where were you when I laid the Earth's foundation?" What a question.

I'm learning to appreciate your Cube. I particularly liked "bridge the gulf," and the last two lines, with appreciation for the present tense in the last word.

This is an excellent poem for the contest
in the symmetric cube form with very good rhymes,
and it follows the Bible events closely.
Excellent photograph of the heavens.
Well done.
Best wishes to all.
Robert

These phrases are so compact yet so meaningful in there brevity. How true that economy is often the window to depth. You truly capture the cube style with great flow and skill.
