First, big kudos on having two of your poems recognized in the celebrated list for 2019!

I am sorry you missed the contest for this poem, but I enjoyed your use of the Loop Poem form with its rhymes and repeats. I also appreciate your "negligees"/"Lingerie" metaphor and alliteration of "f's". The pictures you selected are amazing as well. Cheers- Joan

This is by far the best loop poem I've read either on google, on here or anywhere. It trumps my own effort at one let me tell ya! It's just so creatively clever, reads like an ordinary rhymer and left this reader sated, awed and hoping this poem trumps the voting booth! I take my hat off to you...and my silver lingerie hahaha, joke! I don't have silver lingerie and besides, if I did, that would be awkward because I'm a girl and you're a girl and it would just be...WRONG. Anyhoo, this poem deserves much more than six stars, and as I said, I hope it takes out the winner's badge. Good luck my friend!

First you made me smile!!! Your technical difficulty in conveyance of your whimsical facets in this Loop was so fantastic and it gets INFINITY STARS from me Gloria - just so over exceptional, and you are so brilliant! Every word here and it's pairing was eloquent. The way you do write in this style, I'm in complete and total awe of you! And I love the loop form! I have actually done a variation of this form myself for next year. I am still working on it - instead of a word I'm looping a fragment of the back part of each sentence. Your rhyme and meter are so masterful!!! It is always so special to read your work and the smile was truly needed! Thank you! Cheers, Fonda

    Thank you so much Pam. Not sure where the fish idea came from but it was before it was announced as the theme in the free verse, so something on site must've twigged us all. Always good to hear from you. :))

Excellent creative loop poem. Lucky for everyone else because you probably would've won the contest. I would give you six stars if I had it. Great use of imagery, wording and weaving a story into a poem. Bill

"Dang me, dang me, oughta take a rope and hang me, high from the highest tree...missed that contest girl. I know what a boa is, it ain't a snake. Hee, Hee. Loved your sweet, cheeky poem for the loopy poem entry. Your presentation was spectacular. Loved the part about the lingerie. Weird looking fish they are. Well done Hon.

    Welcome. Helluva week here. My friend/flatmate died on Sunday, I found her. Today, had to work out funeral arrangements. She was very ill with rheumatoid arthritis. We had been mates for thirty years. ;-(

"The Fishy Moulin Rouge", is an exceptionally well-written and deftly descriptive piece. This talented poet has told it as it is. To me, this is a six, but I'm never given enough of them. I look forward to seeing your next post.

Hi Gloria, and that is a 'dang shame' that you missed the contest. This would have been a glorious entry. I absolutely loved it. I've been to Mouling Rouge and Folies Bergere a few times in my life and you've described it wonderfully in your lovely Loop poem. All best. Ulla:)))

    Yes, I find the Moulin Rouge interesting too, although I only made it to the French Quarter in New Orleans. Always good to hear from you. :))
