UPDATE from Stacy Savage

It's that time--time to announce the winner of the Short Verse Poetry Contest! The winner is Kay Cheshire for her poem "Contentment". Thank you Janine Pickett, publisher and editor of Indiana Voice Journal, for helping with judging. It was not hard to decide on a winner. We both loved Kay's wonderful poem. Kay shows what a poet can do with their words with this beautiful piece. Following is a short excerpt from her poem that shows her talent and what I am talking about.
"rest in an oak's shadow while butterflies carry away the hurt".
Congratulations Kay! Her poem will be published in a future issue of Indiana Voice Journal and on the popular blog, Whispers.
Not near as many entries were received for this contest as the last contest, but $126 was raised for As Wings of Eagles. I am sure they will be glad to receive that and it will help get them a step closer to building a new enclosure for the bald eagle, Belle. Thank you to all of you who entered and a big thanks to those who sent a donation for As Wings of Eagles. It is truly appreciated!
