    Weekly Poetry Contest (220) Voting - The Idealistic Experience

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jan 7, 2013.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Two Hundred and Twenty
    Voting



    Vote, and vote often!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Jonathan22) The Idealistic Experience

    Voting will end on Thursday 10th January 2013.

    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.

    A pleasurable activity?
    By Tales of Anima


    To ponder the strife
    Ripe within the soul,
    Under which the knife
    That pierces us whole,
    Hark, the ideal life!

    Dreams in the Soil
    By JJ_Maxx


    Dust takes leave of earth
    Swirling
    Drifting
    No quarter with my dreams
    Defy the seeds

    Expansive fields across the plains
    Stretching
    Yawning
    Final rest of hopes on high
    Defy, defy

    Leaders soaring spirits move
    Booming
    Acting
    Pawns to gather rye
    Still seeds defy

    Visions linger fertile hands
    Working
    Failing
    Curse the godless dry
    Defy

    Measure, of Man
    By AmesWorld


    Delights and pleasures
    so oft-expressed
    desires

    Crags of thought
    seeping with
    wishes

    We strive, strive,
    strive to
    strive

    Amorphic by design,
    impossible we
    divine

    Garden Party
    By Gatsoh


    Cocktails drift in the mottling sun.
    Stir of white and garment flutters,
    Stare of each consuming….

    What it is about you I dare not elongate.
    I manage not a whisper.

    Lawn urges our summer vigil;
    The kiss; measured by silence.

    Alas, New York has such abundant charm.

    The Symphony
    By Wilmeister


    He runs, It Runs.
    He screams, It laughs
    He walks, It lurks.
    He jumps, It pounces.
    He’s ready to fight, It’s ready to kill.
    He kills it, It kills him.

    Simple...
    By Darkkin


    A beating heart, steady, warm...
    A lee, sheltered from the coming storm...

    Enough means to make it through...
    A second chance to begin anew...

    Enough courage to hold my own...
    Protecting the small until they are grown...

    Fighting the good fight...
    Knowing it is futile, but so very right...

    Music a mere hum away...
    Never forgetting to know how to play...

    More smiles than frowns...
    And never admitting a fear of clowns...

    Harsh words forgiven...
    A smile returned...

    Simple.
