    Keep advertising so people will always see your thread on the Recent Forum Posts. I'm sure there is more interest in here than your lead to believe blond.

    Bleeding Blooms.

    A beautiful scene,
    A misguided serene.

    A bleeding bloom
    Hiding an impending doom.

    A disquieting silence
    In a place of violence.

    A memory of fear
    Melted with tears.

    An artificial peace
    An emotional release.

    Why do I stay still?

    I wish for once Im not astray,
    For crossing gates that come my way.

    Advice me if Im wrong or not,
    We need to know the chances got!
    Im sure this path is best for me,
    And sure from up there you can see.

    I think Im young and strong and big.
    Than through this gate Ill meet my fate.
    If only courage wasnt fake-
    Maybe there would be no lig.
    Im - really - not that nice a fig.

    I would like to amend the rules, if I might.
    The judge should list not only the winner, but the second and third place as well.
    Its just so that we, pitiful poets, have a slight chance of having our names commented, at least.

    Where from did all our distortions form
    but from sediment of light that heavens could not quantify
    a place with places qualified be controlled.

    So dripping down, this light, the scene thats showing
    from it's washed out leaf fringes,
    to the concrete columns edged and etched, then smeared that way-
    and loss with depth-we try and we retrace our way up.

    LOL, when I read the first post, I thought that Blonde has selected the Forbidden Link icon as the picutre upon which the poem was to be based. I thought it was strange, but conceivable. Then I read the fiirst poem and was like, "That has nothing to do with a Forbidden link... It's about fairies..." Lol, then I figured out that the picture had not worked, at least on my computer... Lol, sorry for my lack of faith in your picture-choosing abilities, Blonde.

    Angry

    Why dont you just do the thing blond, waiting for 10 poems seems a lot, the fun of it is writing the poem... I guess the game should go faster so we dont have to wait that long for the next round!
    p.s. whats the bump thing? I didnt get it...

    Moment of Choice

    The pillar was the fulcrum, after all;
    Raven stood undecided there,
    Wondering if he at all should dare
    The spiral of the iron stair
    Where flight might fail and he might fall

    He had no memory of the pathway dark
    Where leaf and shadow fell benign
    Or darkened on an unseen line,
    Feared the regular design
    That drew a path into the park

    His yellow gaze interrogated space:
    There were tombstones in the light,
    A quiet morning to the right
    Rose unhurried from the night
    As if to demonstrate its grace

    His disquiet struggled, but it found no voice;
    The hunter's tidy shot erased his choice.

    Come on everyone in the forum we need three more poems before the judging begins. Will you not join the contest and submit a poem?
