    Weekly Poetry Contest (228) Voting - A Moment in Time

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Mar 4, 2013.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Two Hundred and Twenty Eight



    Vote, and vote often!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Roxie) A Moment in Time

    Voting will end on Thursday 7th March 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.

    Seeing Through Moments
    By seelifein69


    From your jaw line, when you tilt your head,
    Stubbled in red,
    Seeing to a distant time,
    Far beyond your four post bed.

    Watching you prevail, so far into the past
    Through opaque glass,
    Aegir beckoning your sail,
    Welan holding up your mast.

    A warrior you were, a King in your days
    With deathly engage,
    Living in a fearsome blur
    Just to satisfy the rage.

    Yet the sky’s misread, overturned was the sea
    Begging Odin, "Mercy!"
    The whole crew, now dead
    In a King’s fiery dream

    And in this moment, you come back to me.

    A Moment
    By Roxie



    Have you ever pondered

    What is a moment?

    Time trickling, elapsing

    Sand dripping through the glass


    Did you ever ask,

    How can only one moment

    Change your life to the point of

    No return


    Did you ever make time

    To acknowledge

    That often

    Just a moment


    Can pull someone

    To your lips

    To open your heart to

    To new eventualities’


    Make you feel

    Alive

    Wanted

    Precious


    Did you ever stop,

    To thank

    These little moments

    With


    A smile

    A kiss

    A caress

    A fire alighted in you

    A molten love moving over you

    A sigh of pleasure in your ear

    A bite of passion on your neck

    A set of nails grooving

    Unknown patterns on your skin

    A bliss reached by the joining



    Without which your life

    Would be meaningless

    Worthless

    Moment less

    Stuck
    By Drusy


    Suspended animation
    Distended and distorted
    Time, like a line, stretches out
    From a bang to a whisper
    And from it is selected
    A sliver.
    Now pull it out gently.
    A silver set picture
    Translucent in the voided dark
    Of the universe's developing room
    Hung from a thread
    Dead weight
    Where fate and two sisters
    Crowd around with scissors.
    One snip
    Crack, like a whip,
    The line snaps back
    And I am staring down
    At your face in its coffin
    Frozen at this age.
    I am … stuck
    In this moment.
