The Fifth Daily Poem Project, Week 8 results

After much delay due to computer problems (old one died, new one took a while to get fully up and running), here we go:


The winner of the eighth week of my fifth Daily Poem Project is Hester Knibbe, Lava and Sand (tr. Jacquelyn Pope), which received 6 votes out of 25 cast.

As the small number of total votes for Knibbe's poem suggests, this vote was extremely close: Carl Phillips, The Moonflowers, received five votes, and two others received four: Jody Gladding, Softwoods, and Charles Wright, In Praise of What Is Missing.

My thanks to everyone who voted, and my apologies for the delay in the results. The call for votes for week nine is already up, and I'll be posting the call for votes for week ten shortly.

The winner of week one was Sherod Santos, Film Noir.
The winner of week two was Edward Field, Cataract op.
The winner of week three was David Bottoms, A Chat with My Father.
The winner of week four was David Schloss, The Myth.
The co-winners of week five were Jason Gray, Letter to the Unconverted, and David Huerta, Before Saying Any of the Great Words (tr. Mark Schafer).
The winner of week six was Stacey Lynn Brown, Cradle Song II.
The winner of week seven was Jack Gilbert, Not Easily.
