John Pieret, Poet and Champion
Raise your glasses high and toast our own John Pieret, who won The Coffee-Stained Writer's National Poetry Month competition. And he deserved to - "Winding Sheet" is a beautiful, haunting poem.
Twasn't an easy decision for my heart sister, I'm sure - he was up against quite a few talented poets, including our own Chris Rhetts.
To extraordinary wordsmiths and the power of poetry, let us raise our glasses and shout, "Salud!"
