Poetry Selections from the End of Summer Poetry Contest: Including Christine Bolton, The Feeling Spleen, Dorinda Duclos, The Darkest Fairy Tale, and Ethan D. Eagar

As you all know, I am thrilled with how the End of Summer Poetry Contest concluded and to keep the fun going, I’ve decided to continue sharing some of my favorite submissions.

 (These do not come in any specific order or ranking.)

Here we go!

From Christine Bolton, we have “Senses of Summer”

“The scent of gardenias

Floating on late afternoon air

Sweetly fragrant and tender

Nothing can compare

Spanish Moss hanging in dreadlocks . . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)

 

From The Feeling Spleen, we have “Different Shades of Sunshine”

“When did you know it was

time

to come home?”

When I didn’t just want the sun to bounce off my

skin,

but to seep all the way . . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)

 

From Dorinda Duclos, we have “Firelight Fizzles”

“The fire burned, ever so slowly
We watched, as flames grew high

Each stick thrown into the pile
Seemed to let out a hideous cry

As the fiery mass engulfed it . . . ” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)

From the Darkest Fairy Tale, we have “Moments”

“The sun sets
After a burning day,
Admiring the last glimpse
Of its Intoxicating rays.
As music dances. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)

From Ethan D Eagar, we have “Warming Breeze”

“Tension sways a load

Nigh the old window

Deftly gripping with unease

Shy dew drops hold taut

Another year’s wash. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)

 

Well that is it for today folks, stop back in next Thursday for another round of wonderful selections from the End of Summer Poetry Contest! Another HUGE thank you to everyone who submitted their poems, you guys did an amazing job!
