    Poetry Contest 39 ~ Haiku

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Mar 31, 2008.

    The
    Thirty Ninth

    Poetry Contest


    The commandments:

    * The poem must be based on the theme I set if not it will not be entered.
    * Only one poem per member or they will be deleted and you will be stricken from the contest.
    * No editing a poem once it is submitted without prior permission. So please PM me before you edit you poems or I will have no choice but to not enter your piece for voting.
    * The poems are to be entered into this thread.
    * No soliciting votes. Do not ask people to vote for you, or attempt to cheat the system. You will be caught, and then I'll have to think of some suitable punishment for you.
    * Put the title at the beginning of your poem. Otherwise it will be removed from the contest and you will be notified by PM.

    The entry stage will end in five days, on 5th April, 2008, whereupon voting will be opened.

    The voting stage will end after three days, on 8th April, 2008. The winner will have their poem stickied in the Poetry Thread for a week following their victory.

    This week's theme (courtesy of Cogito) is: Haiku

    You must write a Haiku. Three lines in length, but a multiple of 3 qould be desirable.

    Be imaginative and have fun :) Please PM any suggestions for future themes to myself and they will be used in the order in which they are received.


    Torana

    PS. Any questions which haven't been answered in this thread should be directed to myself.

    The Willow

    Shadows of old days;
    Leaves dance on a scorching breeze
    In the summer’s drought.

    The forgotten voice,
    Echoing harmonious sounds
    Through its dead branches.

    Longing for slumber;
    For the soft, sweet solitude
    Of undisturbed dreams.

    Sound waves of thunder,
    Resonating somewhere close,
    Lightning strikes the air.

    Teardrops fall from clouds,
    Leaking to agony’s roots;
    Fulfilling its thirst.

    Clouds flee the vast sky,
    Leaving cool air in its wake.
    Autumn has begun.

    Self-Portrait

    Pictures in the sky
    Farming it for frames of blue
    Signed with rays of light

    Unbroken Spell

    Fall, ragged, dances
    snowflake to last step. Whirls. Wears
    winter’s glass slipper.

    A Bad Habit

    To breathe in the smoke
    Instant gratification
    Repent, exhaling

    Perennials Awake

    The long winter ends
    Green shoots, little swords, pierce the snow
    Life begins again

    Soldier of One

    Bullets wizzing by
    Soldiers spralled across the ground
    I will end this war

    Drought

    Dry desiccation
    Dust swirling in heated air
    Clouds a distant dream

    Regrets

    Words unsaid
    Emotions unseen
    Rift unrepaired

    Oil lust

    Drilling arousal
    Dark flow filling the senses
    Rains as black poison

    I've taken the world;
    Possessing all I could want,
    And then you walked by.

    The stallion gallops by
    Leaving dreams in its wake.
