Poetry Selections from the Poetry Contest (PART 4) Including: Shruti Ohri, Lane Burke, Sarah Al-Haddad, Walt, The Muddled Lass, Robert Williams, and From the Heart

Hello Everyone, I am back with EVEN MORE poems from the poetry contest! I just can’t help myself! This is my LAST Blog post concerning the poetry contest (although I am already considering holding another in a few months)

If you’ve followed me for awhile now, you’ve probably noticed I am huge on community! So I’m sharing these poems for several reasons: one reason is for my followers to get to know and follow one another!

While these next poems did not win, they were within my top favorites! (Please note, this is not an order of the next winners [i.e. 3rd, 4th, 5th places] many of these submissions were tied in points)

***If I do not share your poems, please do not feel bad, it does not mean I did not enjoy them! There were many excellent poems, but I had to narrow it down. Thank you for participating!

 

Shruti Ohri’s “Thoughts and Thunder”

“Afraid of the dark, bored of the lights,
Beneath her scars, hid several fights,
Curious as George and a wild traveller,
Daring spirits blazed within her,
Embraced the challenges without any doubts . . .” (Read More Here!)

 

Lane Burke’s “Bestseller”

“Something to touch:
The shell of a woman.
Brand new; shiny.
Who knows what waits beneath . . . ” (Read More Here!)

 

Sarah Al-Haddad’s “In the Ocean’s Company”

“The ocean converses with my soul,
Its waves constantly break at the shore,
With such delicacy that it calms my very core.

The composure of the waves . . . ” (Real More Here!)

 

Walt’s “Heaven Will Wait”

“As I walk through my life
I see goodness and light
Caring and sharing
Drums played at night

As I walk through the mists . . . ” (Read More Here!)

 

The Muddled Lass’s “Lustful Lifts”

“Addicting smiles,

Addicting eyes,

Addicting lips,

With poisonous sips . . . ” (Read More Here!)

 

Robert William’s “Museum Exhibit Four Hundred and Thirty-Nine”

“For me no stone at head or feet,
Buried ‘neath the sodden peat,
Full three times I died, at the hands
of former dwellers in this land,
messenger to the gods my fate . . . ” (Read More Here!)

From the Heart’s “Loss”

“I saw the sky darken over

When Rachael died the other day

An angel so sweet couldn’t leave this earth

Without taking sunshine her way . . . ” (Read More Here!)

 

 

AGAIN, I would like to thank EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO PARTICIPATED in the poetry contest! Every. Single. One. of. You. contributed and because of you, this contest was a success! This is my last post of the poems from the contest, but I encourage those poem-lovers out there to head on back to my original post and read more spectacular poems found in the comments!

Happy Reading, Blogging, & Writing!

  1. Thank you for hosting this contest. It was pure fun to participate in. I had a lot of fun, also, I’m so glad that you liked my poem. I’m looking forward to what the next poem contest will be about!

  2. Reblogged this on From the heart ….. and commented:
    I cannot believe that my poem has been chosen as one of the 25 most loved poems after the 3 winners.
    There were hundreds of entrants and I never expected to be one of these at all.
    This poem means the world to me, it was written and given as a gift for the 3year old daughter of my school friend who died at the age of just 31, following a long battle with a brain tumour. Molly is growing up now and turning into a beautiful little image of her mother more and more every day, she’s a gift that Rachael left the world, and a gift we all truly treasure.
    So this poem was my gift to Molly to let her know she’ll never be alone.
    Thank you to all who took the time to read it. 💞
