    Writers Trinity ~ The Second Contest

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Apr 28, 2008.

    Writers Trinity
    :eek: The Second :eek:


    Welcome to the second WritingForums.org Writers Trinity poetry contest.


    This contest will be run every 4 weeks in place of the already running poetry contest.

    Contest Closes : 5th of May, 2008​

    The rules are as follows:


    Only one entry per member, anyone submitting more than one poem will be disqualified from the poetry contest.

    The poem must contain each of the three words supplied by myself and if not, the poem will be removed from the contest. If said word is the moon, it must be used.

    Each poem must be a minimum of 7 lines and no longer than 30 lines.

    There will be no editing a poem once it is submitted unless you pm myself with full detail of what you wish to change with your submission.. If I see that an entry has been edited it will be removed from the contest and you will be notified by the PM system.

    All poems must be titled, if I find a poem that is untitled it will be removed from the contest and you will be notified via the PM system.

    All poems are to be placed in this thread or they will not be counted as a entry into this contest.

    The piece MUST be an original.

    Using any or all of the words in the poem's title does not meet the qualifications - all words must appear in the poem's body.

    Now with the nasties out the way onto business.

    Craft a poem using the following three words listed below:

    (remember each of the following words/objects MUST be included in the poem. As always, the plural forms of the words count. ie: run - Runs, running. Ran is not acceptable)

    1 ~ Tremble
    2 ~ Sky
    3 ~ Astonishing

    If there are any further questions in regards to this contest please send me a PM and I will respond as soon as I get the PM.

    Thank you kindly

    :) Torana :)

    Ambivalence

    With quivering lip and trembling thigh,
    once acquainted lovers meet
    under a conspiring sky.

    Accompanied by a grin and a gasp
    with astonishing ease comes
    the release of a then tricky clasp.

    A grasping at catches and a clutching of hair
    the past’s taboo forgotten:
    experienced desire laid bare.

    How familiar the ground,
    sure footing and a steady hand over
    each undulating, swollen mound.

    The mute dance of before replaced by bliss.
    Now sweating satisfaction:
    then, but a tender kiss.

    Location:
    in a little cage in the bowls of Cephalid
    A skin graft to machinery

    Swallowed in water;
    the ocean meets the sky.
    Dilation, breathless,
    no need to comply .

    A tremble in your body.
    Pins and needles prick the spine.
    Once so relentless,
    a fault in your design.

    Eyes mechanical.
    A skin graft to machinery.
    Have you forgotten what’s inside?
    smeared scenery.

    When did you die?

    A quick jab to the ribs,
    yet you are not surprised.
    What do you think?
    Mind chastised.

    I thought you died?

    I’m astonished
    your lips so blue.
    How did you come to be,
    perfection askew​

    Miraculous Light

    A roaring thunder, a lightning strike
    I tremble as I watch the sight
    Black and cold is the sky
    I sit alone throughout the night
    The rain comes in and dampens my face
    I stand to my feet, I dance and spin
    The lighting flashes out like veins
    This astonishing event is where it all begins

    Apathetic

    I am a waking nightmare
    I scare myself to sleep
    My presence makes you tremble
    My soul has sunk so deep

    I do not need to heed you
    My sky is faded black
    You miss the person I was
    You want the man I once was back

    Astonishing how quickly I
    Was hated for my honesty
    I am the man I always was
    Yet bear no mask of sympathy

    And Man Cried Out
    ------------------

    And Man cried out,
    cried out to God,
    in anger and despair.
    Raised fist to sky
    and shouted loud
    “Do you even care?”

    Then shone a light,
    a light golden,
    that filled the sky above.
    “What ails you, son?”
    God answered him,
    His voice filled with His love.

    “My world is sick,
    sick and dying,
    and nothing do you do.
    You watch men kill.
    You watch men die.
    What kind of God are You?”

    Sad was the voice,
    the voice of God,
    it trembled with His tears.
    “I feel their pain,
    their hurt hurts Me -
    their sorrows, all their fears.”

    “Then do something!
    Something!” Man begged,
    He fell upon his knees.
    “Save us all. Send
    Your Angels down.
    Let them answer our pleas.”

    “Oh, My poor child,
    child of My heart,
    that I just cannot do.
    The world does not
    belong to Me.
    It all belongs to you.

    “Mankind was born,
    born of My love,
    inheriting the Earth -
    the horrible,
    the astonishing,
    for better and for worse.

    “You have My trust,
    trust that you will
    abandon childish ways.
    That you will heal
    the world yourselves
    in nearby future days.”

    And as the light,
    the light golden,
    faded from the sky above
    Man stood with pride
    and looked upon
    his world with renewed love.

    He knew at last,
    at last understood,
    the task was his to bear.
    The world belonged
    To all mankind.
    It was up to them to care.

    It's Hot and No One Swims - A Triolet

    On the first hot day since the missionaries moved in
    by the window I sit, viewing the apartment pool.
    Against orange sky they return again, at 6 PM
    -on the first hot day since the missionaries moved in-
    helmets dripping sweat, shirts clinging to their trembling skin,
    their buzzing AC: costly, astonishingly cool.
    On the first hot day since the missionaries moved in
    by the window I sweat, viewing the apartment pool.

    passion

    Passion on the Beach

    astonished with your beauty
    you trembel in my arms
    bathing in the sun
    on hot sand we sizzle
    looking up to the sky
    toes curl...
    Oh god! Oh God!

    Torana, just wanted to let you know I gave Rickie permission to edit his poem, as it didn't conform to the rules. Sorry if I'm stepping on your toes at all. Please don't stamp on my feet!
