How to win our contests

by cricketjeff on January 24, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Paint in a poem a place that you love
Show us your world as it’s seen from above
Tell us in rhyme of the things that you do
Give to the reader the story of you

Dream us a dream of the life that you crave
A hero of childhood so manly and brave
The form doesn’t matter, the art is the thing
Put up a poem that makes a heart sing

Sue likes fond sadness, it’s whimsy for me
Tell us the tales of the visions you see
Weave us a spell that we’ll never forget
But really just pen us your best poem yet

Dive to the depths of the way that you think
Show us the nectar that you love to drink
Guide us with fondness where-ever you go
Put all your wishes and fancies on show

A taste of the food that you think of as home
A step on the path where you wish you could roam
The beach where your sandcastles washed in the tide
A glimpse of the you that you think you should hide

Sue likes nostalgia, a love song for me
Sing us the songs that would let you fly free
Weave us a spell that we’ll never forget
But really just pen us your best poem yet

Author notes

This is NOT serious!!!! We want the best rhyming poem that you can write, these are the things that we love, but any poem could win, just make it rhyme and flow and so wonderful we fall in love with it.
