ANNOUNCING A POETRY CONTEST
A fabulous poem by @billykeed inspired an impromptu poem from me. I produce both of them here, with @billykeed's permission of course. I'd love to see more of the poets of steem join us in a collaborative poetry project, by continuing the poem that he and I have begun. The idea is for the poets of Steem to produce a running work of related poems.
Here we are folks, six entries so far! Please join in!
of the space time construct
Something leaks through
Something that should not be
Changes the world
Everything we hold dear
shaken to its core
Nothing sacred everything leaky
holding on against the tide
that breaks all things
against the rocks
The forms becoming hindrances
Of immovable jagged sharpness
Never worn smooth and yet,
For the sages, stepping stones
To cast nets around
And their cries
By all foolhardy heads unheeded
Who in senses of invincibility
Still gashed go a-bleeding
I feel till I fall
with my heart in my hands
and my mind standing still
I love till I break
into cosmic pieces
swimming in stardust
I live in my feelings
This is a second new poem
You can tell by the way
the line breaks break
lines like a sail in a
With clear skies in a cold dawn
the sky delivers a light spring rain
renew the air that will soon warm the sun.
The blessed roses with their buds closed
soon they will deliver their sweet fragrance
and our soul will rise to eternity.
With wishes, I always wait for your return
so that you always give us joy
and happiness remain.
