    __________________________________________________________________________


    Fun in the Sun

    Ocean's blue
    Sands are white
    Skies clear
    Flying kite

    Air is thick
    Skin burns hot
    Water's cool
    Splash a lot

    Surfing waves
    Sailing boat
    Swim all day
    Stay afloat

    Castle's built
    Children play
    Rainbow towels
    Parents lay

    Sizzle barbeque
    Summer rays
    Have a beer
    Happy days!

    Oh thanks @theoriginalmonsterman and everyone who had voted!
    :blowkiss::blowkiss::blowkiss::blowkiss::blowkiss:

    I deliberately stayed away from the tie breaker since it didn't make sense I voted against myself! My original choice was my tiebreaker competitor (@Spencer1990 & The Hungry Season). Totally weird situation.

    You did a great job Spencer, maybe the next one we can fight it out again! I'm greedy, I want another medal. I need to boost up my Anti-Poet street cred! hehe

    To be honest, I am really touched and surprised. This poem was written at night as I was swearing at my system I was working on and got fed up. Took a few minutes out to write a cheerful little piece and felt better again. These comps are the best fun. :-D

    PS: I vote Tunnel Vision for the next one!

    Yeah, tiebreakers are weird. I wouldn't mind just giving the people who tied both medals, but I'm sure there's reasons why the contests are set-up the way they are. I mean if there's another tiebreaker I could flip a coin to decide on a winner, but I feel having another poll makes it a bit more fair. Anyways I'm just glad to hear that you're having fun since that is ultimately the main purpose of these comps.

    Yes, I do think the re-voting is more fair, it would probably upset me if I lost to your shaking fingers flipping not in favour of me. ;-)

    But these comps are unreal. I always have more inspiration after I check the theme. On my own, I'm rather boring...

    THANKS for organising this for us. :blowkiss:

    Thanks! I noticed you did not enter. YOU for the next one. They're really no-pressure fun and seriously it is okay to not be great. The first one I wrote and entered in this comp, my husband read it aloud in the sappiest voice later, it sounded TERRIBLE!

    Thanks! I welcome the challenge. I cannot wait for when @theoriginalmonsterman gets the next one up. *flexing fingers*

    Thanks! *:friend: x 2 for re-voting!* I really liked yours too, so few words yet it immediately struck an image in my mind. Are you really a Marine?

    Well, I'm glad because I was kinda depressed for the author. I just substituted "Marine" with "IT Consultant" but it didn't have the same ring as I read it again... *sigh*

    Anyway, I'm also expecting you'll be entering the next one, so we can fight it out again too and beat @Spencer1990 & @I.A. By the Barn. You can be on my team. I'd rather have the Marine on my side. :superyesh::superyesh: hehe

    Sorry about not having the next contest up yet. I should be able to get it up tonight, so expect that sometime soon, but of course you got three weeks to get your entries in so you've got plenty of time anyways XD
