    Weekly Poetry Contest (198) Voting - Whispers

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jul 2, 2012.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Ninety Eight
    Voting



    Get your poetry here! And vote for it!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Britannica) Whispers

    Voting will end on Thursday 5th July 2012.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. 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, their entry will be removed from the contest and you will be unable to enter a poem into the contest for a month. Sorry to be such an ogre about this, I don't want to be, but rules are rules and are in place for valid reasons. If you can not follow the rules, you face the consequences.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.

    Whisper. Murmur. Hush.
    By Darkkin


    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    The voice of a summer breeze.
    A sibilant hush.
    The words of a ghost,
    Escaping icy lips in a tangled rush.
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    Tangled, mangle words.
    A specter’s voice...
    Delivered in a rush,
    Of wind on a clear, cool night.
    Many would give a start...
    Too many would take fight.
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    Can anyone hear me?
    Can anyone see?
    Does anyone know what became of me?
    So speaks the specter...
    In a tangled, broken rush.
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    A voice on the wind.
    A spirit in the air.
    Phantom eyes are watching.
    As a legend steps forward.
    As someone, at long last...
    Listens and heeds.
    Finally seems to care.
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    A voice soft and muted,
    Converses with the westerly.
    Chases after shadows,
    And hunts down lost refrains.
    A voice is heard within the wind.
    So it all begins again...
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    A fell voice upon the air.
    A specter in the wind.
    A hunter of the shadows.
    A finder of refrains.
    A translator of the fallen.
    And one to make things whole again.
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    Whisper...murmur...hush.
    They are six in number.
    They stand alone.
    Two Guardians, swift and lethal.
    A Thief, stealthy and cunning.
    Two Seekers, knowing and wise.
    A Healer, reforging a broken relic...
    She who will open blind eyes.
    Whisper...murmur...hush.

    WHISPERS
    By Agatha Christie


    Soft whispers of the sea
    Waves lapping at the shore.
    Whispers of a gentle wind
    A breeze across the moor.
    Whispers from a milling crowd
    People rushing through
    The whisper that I long for
    Is the loving one from you.

    Whisper
    By JaketheNinja


    In the back of mind it is there
    That little niggling whisper
    Causing to stand on end, my hair.
    What it does, I do not know
    That little niggling whisper
    Like a gentle breeze that does blow.
    But it controls my life
    My every thought.
    That little niggling whisper
    What I do is for nought
    The Whisper? My concience.

    Whispering Wind
    By seelifein69


    Seemingly see me
    On this bitter day
    In a blustery wind
    Underneath no sun

    You whisper to me
    I can hear you laugh
    I take in the scene
    Of a beachless beach

    A 1920's etiquette
    Lawn chairs blown away
    I relax and just listen
    To you whispering

    The Whisper
    By KingDerekx


    The beauty of you I would sing to the town,
    The angel that's you I would shout underground,
    You're all that I want, All that I need,
    For you I'd risk entering a sorrowful creed,
    I want you to be mine,
    Would you be mine too?
    I would shout it to the world,
    By whispering to you
