    Weekly Poetry Contest (186) - Snowy Days

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Mar 12, 2012.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Eighty Six




    As we come into spring, let's take a poetic look back at winter.

    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 19th March 2012 Monday 26th March 2012.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 22nd March 2012 Thursday 29th March 2012.

    And this week's theme is: (courtesy of Gonissa) Snowy Days


    The next (187th) contest's theme will be (courtesy of Spiderfingers): Telephone Wire, and it will be opened on Monday 19th March Monday 26th March.


    Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing.

    Right. This is embarassing.

    Due to utter lack of entries, I'm going to give a week extension to the entry stage of this contest. So it will remain open until Monday 26th March 2012. If at that point there are still no entries (or insufficient to run a contest) then I'll abandon it and move on to the next one. I'd rather like it if that didn't happen :)

    The Southern Californian and the Snow

    I dreamed of a white Christmas
    Like Bing Crosby said I should
    So I bought myself some mittens
    And a jacket with a hood

    I drove up to the mountains
    The road winding to and fro
    Searching for the shimmer
    Of the freshly fallen snow

    And when at last I found it
    Amidst the tranquil green
    Of the forest and the pine trees
    Just like a Christmas scene

    I stepped out to admire it
    And feel the mountain's hold
    Only to discover
    That snow is really cold!

    snowy day

    flat white sky spits snow -
    our Sunday morning coffee
    made to last all day
