    Thanks for the kind comments on my effort.
    I wrote a Nonnet some time ago - I'll have to dig it out (or write a new one).

    Childhood's End

    Nine rings for mortal men doomed to die...
    Eight years old when she read those lines -
    Seven was always missing.
    Six days a work-week and
    Five people searching
    For a childhood:
    Three houses
    To be
    One
    se non e vero, e molto ben'trovato

    OK here's my entry.

    Watermelon

    The sweet slice, refrigerator chilled,
    Marble lined into the habit
    Of love, I standing by the
    Kitchen sink, gnaw noshing
    The red flesh, your arms
    Wrap me solid
    As you nip
    At my
    Ear.
    LET THERE BE LIGHT

    here's my shot at it, if it's hard to understand, i'm sorry but i couldn't do much with i had, a challenging form

    Shadow Moon

    Two lands exist in all reflections,
    one in the Light, one in Shadow,
    lost, broken, are accepted,
    to like I, walk both worlds.
    Life mirrors the Dead,
    just as the moon
    mirrors the
    Shadow
    Moon.

    life philosophy: "if one wants to succeed, they must become independent, if one wants to be independent, one must strive past the dificulties, using them to shape future desicions, like a sword being folded, every fold is a hardship overcome, and every fold removes one more imperfection that would destroy the completed version"

    I like that one very much Virgil. I had never heard of the word 'noshing' though, I had to look it up.

    A corpulent phrase recedes in ears,
    stepping lightly through spiral folds.
    Crestless ripples sink along
    deserted banks of sand
    worn by tired waves,
    like seashell sounds
    stilled to sleep,
    needing
    rest.

    has taken itself & its tail considerably away
    into the mountains or sea or sky, leaving
    behind: me, wag.

    Thanks, B! I think I fixed it. As I have said before, all our different accents come up with different syllable counts, but it didn't hurt the poem! I'm Southern USA, and we tend to either drop syllables or draw them out, one or t'other. Even those of us who are well educated... You'd be surprized how many times I've heard College professors use "ain't" around here!

    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    summer dance

    Dancing to a warm breeze one sleek leaf
    Turns free the leading hand once held
    Once, twice, three times spinning down
    Stop now lay still softly
    Solo on the ground
    Resting waiting
    For the next
    Rhythmic
    Breath

    I have already posted this poem titled "Moments of bliss" in personal poetry but I thought to put my poem in this contest too. Hope you all will love this poem.

    Moments of bliss


    we fight with fears and struggle to exist
    we cherish the moments which make us want to live

    we explore meaning of life and reasons to live
    we make changes for what we think and what we believe

    we see this world and people and we imitate
    we are never satisfied of what we have and for what we get

    we share time of our life with our family and friends
    we keep these moments as memories until the end

    we go through bittersweet moments and wait for one fine day
    we keep the faith and live in prayers to see true smile on our face

    we strive to fulfill our dreams and to find a better life
    we seek for place to rest our head with peace of mind

    we live on social bonds and faith upon each other
    we live for our loved ones and wish to make it stronger

    we try to touch the stars yet they are out of reach
    we keep ourselves eternally engaged for the moments of bliss

    Too many great poems already posted with this format, but here's mine anyways.

    .
    Superimposed on this life's visions
    lie the grey dreams of others past....
    misty recollections of
    unconquered enemies,
    unfulfilled desires,
    unfinished plans,
    misplaced trust,
    love's grace
    lost.
    .

    The Sun

    My opening eyes purpled the dawn.
    It was I who azured the morn,
    I who stroked the day golden,
    I who yellowed the noon,
    Till my sleepy eyes
    Marooned the dusk,
    And my sleep
    Dimmed the
    Night.
    .
    ...the smell of flowers through metal labyrinths.

    standing on the bank remebering
    blissfull love shared so delictly
    silently dreaming of love
    moments spent together
    dancing under the stars
    haunting her dreams
    replaying again
    in loves
    past


    i hope this is right...im not sure thou

    Vita

    Birth pulled reluctantly from womb's warmth
    Mother singing to soothe the cries.
    First steps into childhood play.
    First time lips meet warm lips.
    Passion and then pangs.
    First child in arms.
    Passing fast.
    Last gasp.
    Birth.
