I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."
All "Across the Lake. Eerily."

Walt and I have something else in common now. The results of the Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer April Poem-a-Day Challenge include the two of us in the top 150 poems of the challenge. Since there were over 25,000 poems entered, this is quite a lift! A surprise lift, for me. I completely anticipated that Walt would be included, but never even allowed myself to dream that one of my poems would make the cut. Incredible.

My prolific partner over there, however, had TWO poems in the top 150! TWO!!



  1. Congratulations to the both of you!!

  2. I think I would've cried (okay, maybe misted over) if you hadn't both made the list--seriously. It was great to see this site, too! I will be back.

    CONGRATS, QUASI CYBER FRIENDS! Here's to the next challenge, may it keep us writing!

  3. Wow. I'm humbled by your comments, Leslie. I'm sure my partner is as well ... I just beat him to the punch. Thanks SO much.

    I'm looking forward to April, and sure am glad we'll be seeing your work out there as well. =)
