What a nice message for a Sunday 🙂

Dear Oonah,

It is a true pleasure to inform you that you are one of the honorees in the Eighth Annual International Ultra-Short Competition sponsored by The Binnacle at The University of Maine at Machias.  This does not mean that you have won any of the cash prizes, but that we would like to include your work, “Death of the Father,” as an honorable mention in our 2011 Ultra-Short edition.

We received nearly 950 submissions from twenty-two countries and six continents, many of which were worthy of inclusion in a volume such as this. From this wonderful gathering of works we chose fifty-seven pieces, including yours,

It’s a prose poem and I am well chuffed 🙂 Never wrote a prose poem before.
