Happy Valentines Day, dear reader!
Although I don’t believe in all the trappings of the day, I do believe in love and in keeping my promises. That’s just what I’m doing today.
Today, I’m confessing something and attempting to make good on a promise I made two years ago. In 2014, I held a contest on my other blog, Write Tribe. The Language of Love contest (details here) had 28 lovely entries and I had promised the winner a prize of a bouquet of e-books. I confess that despite the good response, I didn’t judge the entries and didn’t reward a prize. My apologies to those who took part. However, I’m reopening this and your entries will still be valid. In other words, today, I’m holding the contest here, seeking new entries and adding them to the entries already received (so those who took part before, you don’t have to bother now! :)).
So what’s the contest about?
- Write a story, a poem, an essay on your blog on the following prompt:
“Listen with ears of tolerance! See through the eyes of compassion! Speak with the language of love” ― Rumi
- The quote need not be used but your writing should be inspired by it.
- The word limit is 600 words.
- Use the following picture in your post and hyperlink it to this post.
- Add your link to the linky at the bottom of this post. This will be open until 20th February 2016.
One entry per blog/blogger.
Prizes: A USD 10 / Rs. 600 Amazon Gift card for each of the joint winners – Rajrupa Gupta and Roshan Radhakrishnan.

Today also kicks off the Random Acts of Kindness Week 2016 (Feb 14 – 20). Take the Kindness Pledge here.
Hey Corinne, this is such a beautiful idea! I am sure it will work fabulously well this time too! I hope I come up with something worth putting up before the deadline…..all the same, my best wishes to all the lovely folks who have taken up and will be taking up this amazing prompt.
I tried this with one of my old post.

I won’t be able to enter, but I think it’s a very cool contest and I am going to go through the entries, for sure!
Sometimes, the best things in life are worth waiting for. Kudos for admitting what happened and going forward with this now; it’s not a fun thing to admit embarrassment online but you are making good, and that is what counts.

Thats a lovely contest – and I agree – why not celebrate love – as it is…Best thing:-) Hugs Corinne
That’s a great idea. I don’t know I’ll be able to enter but GREAT that you’re promoting love and compassion 🙂 That’s always a winner, to my mind 🙂
A great contest. I will certainly find time to write. So wonderful of you to revive an old contest.
