Poetry Contest


nakedThe cover photo on this page is a photo of the nine modern Muses of the Arts, a sculpture by Napolean V. Abueva. The muses are theatre, literature, architecture, painting, dance, music, film, computer, sculpture. (Photo prompt by Marcella Leff, administrator)

You may write a poem in any style or form but it must be inspired by this picture. Write about one of the muses or just a muse- what or who inspires you. Post the poem only. 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.

Contest will be from February 24 until March 3, 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.

A new prompt will be posted every week

intertwined Minds

I sit here very still

Staring at your face

Winding my wandering eye

Through the curves of your life

I ask myself if I can somehow

Think of words that you will hear

If sometime in our future

Our branches will intertwine

Oh how lovely that would be

Two hearts become one

Arms and legs bound

Minds thinking alike

Love for both to share

I can feel you within me

My soul reaches out to you

Come to me my darling

Let us create the

Art of our love.

Remember the Dream I Had the Other Day?


This was a lot of fun and many responded with honest answers of either not being poetic or giving an ending. I just loved being able to chat with all of you who dropped by. The poem started from a dream I was having. All I could remember when I woke up was these words;

As I lay here on the ground

And the guns are going off

I know that these people are trying

To silence me God don’t let me be found.

Valarielovelight responded with this ending;

Hide me under your shadow, Keep me safe from harm, Protect me from mine enemies, Let your peace replace my fear and alarm.

 

ltpen315,barb added this ending;

I’m not afraid to go

For You I do know

And though I would love to see my mother

I still need to be here for my brother!

 

Aren’t these beautiful endings? I love them both. Thanks everyone for stopping by and chatting with me and to Valarie and Barb for giving wonderful endings.
