Trophies has not decorated my room
I only own Poetry
Its not made in medals
Just created in thoughts and words
I'm all the poetry that I can ever win
Poetry in my soul
Music without melody
Touch my heart
Hear my tunes
Feel it
It's all poetry

The BloggingPoet.com will again host the Poet Laureate Of The Blogosphere Election for the 4th year in a row with nominations beginning April 1, 2008. The Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere is the only laureateship chosen by readers.

Previous winners are Amy King, Ron Silliman and Jilly Dybka.

Rules for 2008 are as follows:
1. Those nominated must have a history of posting poetry to their blogs for a period of no less than 1 year prior to March 1, 2008.
2. Anyone can nominate their favorite poetry blogger.

9. All decisions by the judge will be final.
10. All nominations must be made in the form provided on April 1st. E-mail, write-ins, protests and other means to nominate will not be accepted.


The Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere isn't all that big a deal as previous winners are yet to be household names but like so much of what is done here on the Blogsboro Network it's designed to shine some light on a few who have worked hard and seldom received the recognition they deserve.

Update: Speaking of shining more light, the winner will be given the chance to be interviewed at Living In Poetry.

Amazing poem u wrote .. though somewhat of an antithesis to the blogging award ..

I can feel your verses .. and especially the line "I only own poetry"
