    Weekly Poetry Contest (148) - All is one, one is all

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Apr 18, 2011.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Forty Eight




    A week late, but hopefully just as much fun!

    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 be open for seven days, closing on Monday 25th April 2011.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 28th April 2011.


    And this week's theme is (courtesy of Palmer): All is one, one is all

    The next (149th) contest's theme will be: Shakespearean Sonnet, and it will be opened on Monday 25th April 2011.


    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).

    Wolfhood

    Trained all their life
    Fought with the knife
    Felt all the pain
    Drowned in the rain
    Chose their own path
    Faced all the wrath
    But in the end
    When they descend
    And lose the sun
    Lone wolves are done
    All for one
    One for all
    No matter who won
    As brothers they fall...

    atoms

    within the spaces they traverse
    each one reflects its universe
    they are the earth, the skies above
    they are the air, the things we love

    whilst planets circle stars ablaze
    their electrons revolve and chase
    as all is one and one is all
    you'll find the mighty in the small
    and nought would be without them all.

    One Again

    Come back to your Mother
    Come back to the Earth
    Eighty summers have you passed
    With joy by your hearth

    Come talk to your brothers
    Come love your son
    Who were once full of life
    Over whom war has now won

    Come smell the fresh grass
    Taste the sweet salty ground
    For peace you shall not find
    Until you come around

    Stop fighting the pull
    Stop fleeing from sight
    Be part of us now
    Our Friend, show might

    For we are not strangers
    We have but one Mother
    The Earth is our shelter
    So come with us Brother

    All Together Now!

    All is one and one is all
    Held in harmony
    The Skies, seas, soil and stars
    Drive life’s odyssey

    Relish nature then you’ll see
    Venture to the sun
    Sit beneath the willow tree
    It’s always tons of fun

    Let me tell you the best part
    Your journey will never end
    So long as life stays alive
    Shalt all be one and blend

    Internal River

    All a part of the ebb and flow
    there is no joy, in letting go
    perhaps we must cling on to life
    or face the torture of the knife

    for all is one, and one is all
    we hearken to the sirens call
    unable to divert ourselves
    we let chaos, fill our sails

    look at the rocks, look at the trees
    and ask yourself, what do you see
    the only answer, it must be
    is the loneliest word - me.​

    Ready

    From Within The Strength I Will Find…
    Although, I know It Will Not Be Easy…
    Letting Go, I Must…
    For Yesterday, I Can Not Change…
    No Longer Shall I Try…
    Failure And Mistakes…
    Long Nights And Tears…
    Lessons I Have Learned…
    The Path, Predetermined….
    Already Set In Stone…
    This I Know…
    The Signs I See…
    Your Words I Can Hear…
    Clearly It Is Time…
