Seeking Center

Third Wednesday’s annual poetry contest is accepting entries until February 15th, 2019. Here is a winning poem from 2017 from Washington poet, Cheryl Clough.  Judge Larry Levy said: “Seeking Center seems to me one of the most deserving winners in this year’s entries. It demonstrates a strong command of language, economy of expression, and sense of direction. It begins well, builds with an interesting theme in mind, and develops and sustains that theme in surprising and arresting ways.
