    Past Contest Weekly Poetry Contest for the Week of 8/11/13: First Times

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by morepages, Aug 8, 2013.

    Weekly Poetry Contest

    Week of 8/11/13

    Theme: First Times​


    The Weekly Poetry Contest is back! My name is morepages and I'll be running the contest; feel free to message me with any comments, questions, or concerns as we move on to future contests. In this first post let me outline the rules:

    - Contests will be posted Friday at 8pm (Eastern Standard Time) from now on.
    - Submissions will run through Sunday at 8pm. Submit poems as replies to this thread.
    - Voting will run in a new thread through Thursday at 8pm.
    - The winner of the contest will be announced in a new thread Friday at 8pm, when they will have an entire day of glory and congratulations before we start over! Sound fair?

    And of course, all work should be your own and all that jazz. Y'all know how to do this fairly.

    The Theme: First Times
    In honor of this new beginning for the Weekly Poetry Contest, this week's theme is all about new beginnings. Poetry submissions for this contest should consider the topic of first times, new beginnings, and fresh starts. Some suggestions:
    - first day at school,job, home, etc.
    - first day after X
    - last day of X

    If there are any questions about whether a poem meets the theme, message me!

    There are first times and last times
    Between times and without times

    There are lines written and lines lost
    There's happy times and times that cost

    First time bitten and forever shy
    Last time bitten just before we try

    Something, pure, primal and nascent
    Devouring times first placement

    The minds game wandering within
    The beginning of a kindred kin

    Slowly it bends away
    Slowly it turns grey
    An ending way
    Fading day
    Away
    Away

    A way is born into a new beginning
    A new morn that never stops singing

    Just between you and me and the nonexistant readers of this thread, you win the first week [MENTION=55733]badgerjelly[/MENTION].

    The submission period for the contest this week will be extended to Tuesday night. I'll try to do more advertising until then to encourage competition!
