    Winning Poem From Poetry Contest (06)

    Discussion in 'Monthly 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.
