The theme of this poetry competition is love and loss. There is a prize on offer, though I'm not sure what it is.
The best poems will be included in an anthology which will be sold with the aim of raising funds for the Peace Hospice and as an HRH is a judge, there should be some publicity for the winner. Entrants are invited to make a donation of £2, but as that seems reasonable under the circumstances and is voluntary, I'm still considering this a freebie.
In a way these flowers symbolise love and loss for me - though probably not in the way the competition organisers have in mind.
