Yes both are deserving poems.....one of them is full of tough english language {all enlighted words} but at the end it comes out good.....Loved it....THE POEM IS SIMPLY GREAT with all the language in it...

The winning poem is also great, it is put in a rhyming simple english language...we dont have to read twice or thrice to understand it.....

The winning poem has proved that an enlightment poem need not have tough willam wordsworth'ian english......According to me, what makes this poem win over the runner's up poem is the simplicity in which enlightment is protrayed.

Both the poem are simply great...

Cheers to both of you....

Thank you everyone... being an amateur poet and this poem being one of the first few I attempted to write, this is indeed very encouraging.

I am amazed to see the amount of talent,committment and amazing passion for poetry which all you have.
Not to forget the deep thinking and high philosophy that some of the poems reflect.

A big thank you and am glad to be a part of this beautiful, creative, meaningful and exciting world of poems and poets.
