    Weekly Poetry Contest (133) - Quinzaines

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Dec 8, 2010.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Thirty Three



    My apologies for the delay. One of the unfortunate consequences of the end of term.

    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 13th December 2010.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 16th December 2010.


    And this week's theme is (a little obscure): Quinzaines

    Please take a look at the specifics of this poetic form here.

    The next (134th) contest's theme will be: Christmas, and it will be opened on 13th December 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).

    What the heck. I've never entered the contests. This one looked interesting so here's my entry.

    Beginning of the End

    Seven war ships, seven seas
    Are they poised to strike?
    Will peace end?

    I'm trying to write a Quinzaine.
    Just fifteen syllables?
    Just three lines?

    :p

    Reflection In A Quinzaine

    I have lived a selfish life.
    Can I make it right?
    Can I try?

    Prophecies of the Earth

    Ancient text ending the world.
    Can the cycle fail?
    Will we live?

    Sadly madness

    Sad, just before going mad.
    Is madness that bad?
    Just now sad?

    A blade of grass in the wind.
    Will you bend like it?
    Will you break?

    Siren Song of Death

    A whisper came soft and sweet.
    Will you take my help?
    One small kiss?

    Dreams.

    Dreams are mysterious things.
    Do they tell the truth?
    Can they lie?

    Finals or Forums?

    I don't have time for this.
    Oh look, a contest?
    But should I?
