    Poetry Contest Voting 39

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Apr 5, 2008.

    The
    Thirty Eighth
    Poetry Contest
    Voting





    The contest is closed, and voting shall now commence!

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


    Quite a few entries this week, you lot did me proud

    Voting will end on 8th April 2008. Voting for yourself is entirely at your own disgression. I'm frankly sick of discussion on the matter, so any in here will be deleted. If you want to vote for yourself, go for it, but I personally wouldn't do that unless I genuinely believed mine was the best.

    The winning poem will be stickied for a week in the poetry contest.


    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, it'll be castration (or whatever I deem the female equivilent to be). You have been warned *evil laughs, whilst sharpening a carving knife...*

    Seriously folks, don't do it. There is no prize to be won here but bragging rights, making cheating an exercise in pointlessness.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting

    The Willow ~ In Pieces

    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 ~ TheArtfulWeber

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

    Unbroken Spell ~ salicylic c.

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

    A Bad Habit ~ ChristiMac

    To breathe in the smoke
    Instant gratification
    Repent, exhaling

    Perennials Awake ~ Griffin

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

    Soldier of One ~ Oasis Writer

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

    Drought ~ AWR

    Dry desiccation
    Dust swirling in heated air
    Clouds a distant dream

    Oil lust ~ Luminous

    Drilling arousal
    Dark flow filling the senses
    Rains as black poison

    Seizher ~ oddiz4u

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

    Left Behind ~ pegasi_quill

    With streaming mane
    The stallion gallops by
    Leaving dreams in its wake.
