    Weekly Poetry Contest (125) - Haikus

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Sep 21, 2010.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Twenty Five




    It's a day late, sorry about that, but here's the latest contest.


    The Rules
    • All entries must be on the set theme.
    • Only one entry per member.
    • No editing of entries once posted without my express permission (i.e. PM me and ask).
    • Poems must be titled
    • Entries must not have previously posted on the forums, and are not permitted to be posted for critique until AFTER the contest is completed.
    • Any violation of these rules will result in disqualification of entries, and possibly infraction.


    The entry stage will last six days, meaning it will close on Monday 27th September 2010.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 30th September 2010.


    And this week's theme is: Haikus

    Haikus on any subject will be accepted, but please make sure that your poem conforms to haiku format.

    The next (126th) contest's theme will be (courtesy of mercy) Parental Love, and the 125th contest will be opened on 27th September 2010

    Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing.


    Banzai


    PS: If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. I don't bite (much).

    Due to a copy-and-paste error, the rules originally required poems to be of at least seven lines.

    Rest assured, that requirement is not in effect for this contest.

    Sorry about that.

    Note: This is my first time, Sir Banzai, and I believe I have followed the rules; I apologize if I have omitted something.

    What is LOVE?

    Love is real and true
    Not lust nor small attractions
    Love is from the heart.

    Future, look forward!
    Your shadow betrays your form.
    Be proud - lonely prude.

    The dead leaves blow
    With my earliest memories-
    Mother North comes home again.

    ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to my reasons (this is the week before I go back to university, and suddenly a thousand and one tasks have suddenly reared their ugly heads and started screaming for attention) I'm extending the contest. It will now be open an additional week, closing on Monday 4th October 2010, whereupon the voting and next contest will open.

    Apologies for the delay, and thank you for your understanding.

    Just Go
    Slow opposition;
    Sprint on the spin of the world
    and we don't fall down

    Lust empounded upon,
    The gasoline drenched flood,
    Flowing through death's scythe.
