As one can see from some of my posts and pictures on this Blog Janine and I were serious bird enthusiasts over the years. Well, I have shared this fact with so many persons that it is now well-known. At Writing.Com they had a Power Reviewer's Challenge for us to write a dialogue or poem based on a picture of 3 birds. Now you know who could not miss that! Me, of course! You can therefore imagine how thrilled I was to receive the Writing.com Power Challenge Winner Award for this small poem that I wrote rather quickly:
LIKE BIRDS OF A FEATHER
We are like birds of a feather,
When Power Reviewers flock together.
Eyeing many a poem, article and short story,
As writers eagerly seek their moment of glory.
Accolades and advice are deeply yearned,
It is the time for a lot to be learned.
Our monthly raids are so much fun,
That is when many reviews are done.
Over the years Janine and I have written about birds for local and foreign publications. I can picture this smile on her face right now if she was here with me today.
