A Little Poetry Contest

Write a poem for National Poetry Month!  Just let your mind wander and write a poem of any kind in the comments area for this post.

Get your poem done by 12:00 am PST Friday April 24, 2009.

Your poem can be any length.  It can rhyme or not.  Just make a poem and let me read it.

I’ll pick my 3 favorites and do audio versions of them to post right here in the blog.

This painting is of a poor old poet trying to come up with his next poem.  Be exactly like him.

  1. Water rush and soughing bough
    In tune together marking time
    Song of thrush and poets rhyme
    Blending easy as meadow thyme

  2. A Blank Canvas:

    Inspiration comes from all seeing eyes.
    Let the imaginiation run wild
    With all colours that light up at night.

    Outside the window looms a palace
    With domes that stretch up to the sky.
    Stuck in time, yet current;

    Transporting me back to a time of
    Princes, kings and queens.
    Arabian nights coax and tempt me.

    Back in the land of reality,
    The box is blaring, mum is cooking
    And my best friend is next to me.

    The computer is on a small table
    That was a shelf – makeshift, but handy.
    Drink and numerous papers at my side.

    White walls, sleek lines;
    Carpet that’s light and not right,
    Sliding doors of black and silver.

    All this in a box of glass
    Ready to be personalised.
    A blank canvas.

  3. Only Love

    Love can sometimes be fresh.
    Love can sometimes be new.
    Love can sometimes make you happy.
    And sometimes make you blue.

    Love is the light that radiates from your eyes.
    Love is your image floating in the skies.

    Love is true.
    And darling, the only love for me is you.

  4. Our Love

    As long as there is love, I will cherish you.

    As long as there is life, I will love you.

    As long as the stars shine above, I will want you.

    As long as there are waves in the ocean, I will need you.

    As long as there is heaven above, there will always be our love.

  5. The Night Was Made For Romance

    The night was made for romance.
    In the night our two hearts dance.
    Under the stars our lips touch.
    In the garden your embrace means so much.

    The night was made for love.
    Our hearts cooing like a white dove.
    Your eyes sparkling like diamonds so white.
    I love you darling with all my might.

    The night was made for caring and trust.
    And darling, God made this night for us.

  6. My Love

    My love sails on blue waters.
    Blue waters of your heart.
    My love dances on the wind.
    The wind of your soul.

    My love is a true reflection.
    Reflection of your eyes.
    My love will live forever.
    In your body and soul.

  7. Your Love

    Your love is like diamonds.
    That sparkle in the night.
    Your love is like the stars.
    That shine so bright.

    Your love is like the wind.
    That feels so cool.
    Your love is like icecream.
    That tastes so smooth.

    Your love is like the sky.
    That is so blue.
    Your love is like a bright sunny day.
    That makes the world seem new.
