POETIC BLOOMINGS is a Phoenix Rising Poetry Guild site established in May 2011 to nurture and inspire the creative spirit.


One of the most fun times I’ve had out here as a host was daily watching the polls as votes were being cast in our 2013 National Poetry Day contest – our very first contest ever!

With 54 of 117 votes, the clear winner is  I Had an Inkling Lurking There, by Hannah Gosselin!  Congratulations, Hannah!  You will soon receive an autographed copy of Robert Lee Brewer’s Solving the World’s Problems, a Press 53 publication.

Many thanks to all who participated – whether submitting, reading, or voting.  We just might have to do this again sometime. 😀

Though the voting is now closed, you may view poll results by clicking “view results” at the bottom of this poll :
