"I peel away the ceiling stars . . ."
My sonnet, "Coming to Terms" just received a Laureate's Choice Award in the Great River Shakespeare Festival, Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest (Winona, Minnesota).
There were over 400 sonnets entered in this year's contest, by poets from thirty-six U.S. states and six foreign countries.
The poem also won the 2010 Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award and was first published in Measure and also appears in the award-winning, Coming to Terms, finalist in the Wattpad Attys competition, judged by Margaret Atwood.
