Putting Our Heads Together
Poetry Contest, 2013

Placing Poems
 

 

 

I thought last year's contest was tough to judge until the judges started working on our 2013 entries. Wow! It was beyond difficult to select "winners." In our eyes, everyone who entered and every poem is a winner. It's been so difficult that we're just now posting the contest results on June 14. Today, we're publishing the placing poems. Over the weekend, we'll get all of the poems that were submitted and met the contest rules.

To each and every one of you, thank you, and congratulations!

This year's contest is dedicated to Dr. Fred Sheftell, a wonderful man and Headache / Migraine specialist whom we miss greatly...

This One's for You, Dr. Fred
dedicated to Dr. Fred Sheftell 

your dedication unrivaled. . .
. . . passion unquestioned . . .
. . . sense of people unmatched. . .
. . . you impacted so many lives.
 

you praised, prompted, and provoked. . .
. . . cajoled, coaxed, and convinced. . .
. . . monitored, molded, and mentored. . .
. . . all to help us achieve.
 

you understood migraine blues*. . .
. . .
saw many through trials of the triptan du jour*. . .
. . .
reminded us that life is worth living each day*. . .
. . . with your twinkling eyes and kind smile.

This one's for you, Dr. Fred.

*from Dr. Sheftel's CD, Migraine Blues. Check the footer of the AHMA blog to view.
