    Winning Poem From Poetry Contest (06)

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Raven, May 28, 2007.

    The Reaper

    Winter Sunset


    The complexion, nature couldn’t do any better.
    It is a dream to every commuter men.
    Appreciation manifests upon their faces
    As they shovel and trowel in competition
    And hope you bring against their exhaustion
    That a cup burning of hot coffee and tea,
    As the wood struggles in ash and coal production,
    Shall sooth their dry icing skin of rubber.

    I could not move away,
    Move away from the comfort, of thy rays
    While they marked a terrible night of freezing
    As they partially satisfied my skin,
    My mind fantasized as I watched thy beauty.
    What if I could fly and run the tips of my fingers?
    So as to raise the speed of thy furnace!
    And fascinate my muscle cover in warmth.

    A cry of agony I heard form above.
    The poor bird was saying its prayers
    Protesting and procrastinating as it did.
    A glimpse through nets of drying leaves
    I could see, a posture like a statue
    Shivering it couldn’t, it was deep in thought
    For the sight of your face implied;
    Another task added for tomorrow
    To today’s mission unaccomplished.
