Poetry Contest

A visual poem about family.
This is our visual poetry monthly competition for March 2018. The winner and any runners up will get their poem featured on our official social media accounts.

Create a poem as an image.

Write a poem about family. To celebrate the launch of the new themes feature, I'm going to be choosing a different #theme for each of the next few visual poetry monthly competitions.

RULES
- 50 word limit
- Your image must include the full text of your poem
- Don't use photos or artwork which are copyrighted by someone else.
- Ensure the text of the poem is large enough, clear and readable even on small devices like mobile phones.
- You agree by entering to let us post your image on our various social media accounts (Instagram etc.). You will be credited by username in the caption.
- Max two entries per person.

HOW TO ENTER
- Create an image with your poem text. This can be plain, or you can include image(s) or a background. Be creative.
- If it's a new poem, then post it on DU using "submit poem". You will need to submit the text of the poem (you'll add the image afterwards).
- Once you have submit your poem, use the "Add Multimedia" button under your poem text to attach the image, selecting the "visual poem" option when submitting the image.

No problem, we have a group for that:

I didn't even see Eswaller's post prior to posting my submission and her title is similar to one of my lines, I guess great minds think alike ;)

My dear Webmistress - thank you...

This is/ was the last photo I will ever take with my Father.  I am both glad and sorry that it touched you. It is  not an easy path.

Congratulations to Uma and Grace for their wonderful writes...

And gratitude to all who shared their words.
