NTSFW member Gerald Warfiled’s very first prose poem “Parade Through Woodland Park” won third prize in the current OdysseyCon contest. Congratulations, Gerald!
I'll be reading it at the con. It was heartening news. Lately, I've been striking out completely with my poetry. Woodland Park is one of the local cemeteries in Mineral Wells. The two main characters are ghosts (uncle and nephew). My favorite lines are when the nephew inquires of his uncle why everyone in the cemetery looks so bored, and he replies: "Dear nephew, what remains to engage the brain, to snare the mind in this desolate place? Shall we gasp in amazement at the passing clouds or swoon at the neglect of the cemetery grounds?"
