Understanding Graphite by Oonah V. Joslin

Placard Poetry Contest

We were pleased to find an electronic mountain of entries for our Spring Poetry Contest. We had numerous wonderful poems to read and the competition was close, very close. We had decided from the outset that the poems would be ‘judged blind’ so that each poem would be evaluated on its merit rather than its author. Postcard Poems and Prose thanks everyone who wrote to the prompts and sent us poems. Without your creative souls there would be no poetry here at PP&P.

Ulster born poet Oonah Joslin is Managing Editor of e-zine Every Day Poets. She is thrice winner (and subsequent judge) of Microhorror’s coveted Hallowe’en competition, and is currently working on a collection of short stories old and new to suit every taste.

  1. Oonah, love that last line, Winter still stalks February, so true, what a shocking Winter it has been. Spring day today, blue skies as I type, a joy to read your poem, well done again :))) Maire x
