Each year, the country with the most views, receives poetry written by me and about the winner, us, or whatever Inspiration chooses. Since I haven't been to any of these countries, I am limited to information available via the internet, libraries, and friends who have been there. I do a great deal of research before I ever venture into writing poetry about what are, to me, foreign places. More importantly, I attempt to highlight those areas of contention that our countries each struggle with.
Today (September 12th, 2015), I saw a post with information about The Teardrop Monument which was a memorial gift from Russia to America meant as a sign of solidarity in the struggle against terrorism and to commemorate the five year anniversary of the lives lost on September 11th, 2001. Because this information was unavailable to me when Russia won the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd contests, I will write a new poem for Russia.
BTW: The 6th Annual International Views Contest is currently underway. You have until May 31st, 2016 to get those views in.
P.S. Israel, more poetry is coming your way.
