    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Apples to oranges
    Peaches to pears
    Blueberry garnish
    Grapes every where
    Starfruit to Kiwi
    Bananas to plums
    Cranberry here and there
    Durian smells some...
    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...

    Still Life : Red Queen Hypothesis

    Pallor caresses the youth's cheeks
    Her heart skips bumps on celerity's ride
    Paradox pens chapters in an ageless creed
    Concerning the intent to bustle by staying still

    ---

    This is an abstract poem on one of the principles/tenets of genetic and evolutionary theory.

    An Isolated Monk Trying to Achieve a Still Life

    While frantically thinking that thoughts should be still
    Unnerved that the brain won't report to his will
    The monk in the cave in some mountain up high
    Reacted and said that he might as well die,
    But death wasn't ready to give him relief.
    There's nothing to justify fantasized grief.
    His lonely, cantankerous, mind's having fun
    With no one to blame for those thoughts except one.

    All great entries, it was a difficult task.

    Pendragon: I rather like the way in which the compassion of the various different fruits also bring to my mind specific colors which can be associated with each of these fruits. In this way the poem really draws upon many of the different senses which I enjoy.

    cafolini: An amusing and suggestive poem A fun play upon words.

    Melanie: I really like how there is an almost surreal quality to this poem. I think it is a great concept.

    Adolescent09: There is some wonderful descriptive lines here, and I enjoy the clever use of language. Very skillfully written. Captivating as well as thought provoking.

    YesNo: I love the originality of this poem and the way in which it went in quite a different direction. A great concept

    And the winner is.......

    cacian: This is beautiful and elegant. It creates quite a vivid image within my mind. The words are captivating.

    Bluebells

    The long way through the woods led me
    To bluebells growing peacefully
    Beneath the open canopy
    Where leaves were yet to sprout.

    The wrong way through the woods would be
    The one that frolicked carelessly
    Through bluebells so the fairies see
    They'd have to get me out.

    The Bluebells ring in the woods in Spring
    And the harebells tinkle all down the lane
    The trumpet vine really sounds divine
    As the Fiddleheads play in the shade

    Wearing a Turk's Cap a tiny chap
    Dances in a Fairy Ring all alone
    The Dutchman Pipes are finally ripe
    And Jack in the Pulpit's voice intones

    The Bluebell's call to one and all
    The Monk's Hood's all attend
    Lady Slippered feet as the Fairies meet
    In their little meeting in the glen!
    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...
