Spring 2020 Poetry Contest Winner

Daily Wisdom Words began a Spring Poetry Contest the beginning of March, 2020, and many wonderful entries were received! We allowed members and non-members alike to submit poetry for this contest. After many painstaking hours of reading and debate the community here within DailyWisdomWords.com would like to congratulate Robert Fish for his submission “All These Words”. View the winning submission below.

All these words combine
Saying such that you’re
An angel in my dream
On these lonely streets
Only you can command
A glance takes my breath
A smile, a crush kept
All these words scatter
Like butterflies afraid
Your gorgeous mind
Devours them before
They tell you
You’re beautiful.
