Hello Everyone! The End of Summer Poetry Contest was an absolute blast! Congratulations again to our winner, _________!
While I chose to announce the top three poems/poets when I went LIVE, I knew that I still needed to share some more amazing poetry with all of you. So over the next few weeks, I will be sharing some of my favorite selections from the End of Summer Poetry Contest. (These do not come in any specific order or ranking.)
Here we go!
From Fiona, we have “And Then The Rain Came”
“Grass so parched it’s barely there
Brown and dry, scorched and bare
Land cracked and arrid, seeking some
Drops of water, from where will they come?
River beds empty, ponds forlorn . . . ” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From Soul Adventure, we have “First Love…”
“i had a sunflower once
who i never watered
i thought she could survive
all on her own
one day she dried up . . . “ (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From KRITIKA, we have “Seasonal Emotions”
“. . . Days longer and nights shorter.
In those nights
I manage to always catch
A lone star hanging in the sky
Brighter than the others.
It reminds me of you. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From Brandewulf, we have “Moondance”
“This moon. That moon.
Shared in space but not in place.
One filtered through the trees
The other sea breeze scented.
Heartbeats apart in syncopation. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From ThoughtsWithAri, we have “Waiting”
“The workload is overbearing now
it’s ticking and i can feel the pull of
I cannot . . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
