Should I Dare?


The cover photo on this page is a photo of the Chinese Garden Canopy Tree (Photo prompt by Marcella Leff, administrator)

You may write in any style or poetic form a poem about a dream under this tree. Explanation about your poem is permissible. Photos with your post will be deleted. You may post as many poems as you want but comments are counted per poem only.

Winner will be judged by the most original comments. One person can make many comments but only counts as one comment for winning at the end of the time limit. Your own comments do not count because you cannot judge your own poem. Comments being counted begins on July 21st, 9:30pm if this event was posted earlier than stated date/time.

Contest will be from July 21 until July 28, 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.

A new prompt will be posted every week. Winner will be posted on the main group page:

Pulling tugging on the soul
Bring together as a whole
Questions, doubts arise so near
Hope of happiness, a little fear
Feelings arise, kisses I feel
Is it my wish or is it my will
I don’t care what others say
I want to have today my way
Because I may not have a chance
To sing, to laugh and have this dance
I will treasure for this one day
Of loving you in the only way
And if for some reason unknown to me
I will have my memories of thee
So touch my branches shake my leaves
Let it shout, bounce through the trees
Let love explode down through the spine
For this one day you will be mine.
