    Ok, so we have two great entries so far but to make it a real contest we need a few more. I'll give you until the 15th of this month...

    I will extend this until the end of the weekend to see if we can get any more entries as two is not really enough for a contest IMO. So will close it at midnight (GMT) on Sun 19th.
    C'mon guys! Lets see what you can do.

    So it would seem that Sheep is not a subject that inspires people to get creative! It is a shame but obviously time to move on.
    If I could I would declare a draw as both poems are so good but in order to continue the thread I must choose one. Therefore... for no other reason than it made me chuckle out loud I declare Sheeple to be the winner.
    Congratulations YesNo

    Summers Swell

    Lazy sunshine
    rains upon the
    shore and sparkles
    over horses running wild
    atop tumbling waves.

    The deadline has passed! Thank you for all the entries!

    Cassie Hughes: Nice way to anticipate summer with sun, waves and horses running wild.

    tailor STATELY: I like the path to bliss through misty fog.

    Both entries are delightful. The winner is tailor STATELY. Congratulations!
