Contest will be from June 23 until June 30, 9:30 pm. All members are invited to enter this contest. You can add your friends to join. Challenge them.
Administrators may post examples of poems but are not eligible to win. Administrators can like your poems but their comments do not count.

* An epitaph is a short text honoring a deceased person originating from the Greeks. It can be one line or a poetic verse. Strictly speaking, it refers to text that is inscribed on a tombstone or plaque, but it may also be used in a figurative sense. Some epitaphs are specified by the person themselves before their death, while others are chosen by those responsible for the burial.
Even in death, Shakespeare left a verse as an epitaph ( from photo prompt).
Good friend, for Jesus’ sake forbear
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And cursed be he that moves my bones.
It can be humorous. “ It’s over” or “I told you I was sick”.
THE TOMBSTONE READ LIKE THIS
YOU SAID I WASN’T ILL
I’M HERE TO SAY YOU’RE WRONG
NOW LET ME REST IN PEACE
ADIOS, GOODBYE, SO LONG.
What would you think if you saw these words I wrote on a tombstone?
