Poetry Contest

New Member of the Month Feature!

Welcome to "New Member of the Month"!

You have 3 weeks to nominate  Your favorite poems from a NEW DUP poet - someone who has been a member for no more than six months.

To locate New Members simply click on 'Poems' > *Latest Poems > Sort Poems > New Members!  

Please note the following guidelines when making nominations:

1. Self nominations are not accepted. The great majority of the competitions here are about spotlighting one's own work on a particular topic or theme.  This is a chance to nominate that poem that you wish you had written but some other great talent here beat you to it.

2. Until this comp is established, there is no limit to nominations; however, you can't nominate more than one poem per individual new member.  *****

3. No DUPLICATES. If someone nominates the same poem the entry will be deleted. If you like it that much wait and vote for it!

4. Any genre except erotica or pornography. This is a Facebook feature and we must adhere to their guidelines.  

5. Any member who is banned or disables their account PRIOR to the win will be automatically disqualified.

6. One win per member per calendar year ( 12 months ).

7. All nominators should notify their nominees of nominations.

8.  PLEASE DON’T NOMINATE RECENT WINNERS ( see list below )

Any nominated member who wishes to opt out of the competition may do so by messaging me. I will contact the person who nominated you and request an alternate nomination.

Nomination Duration is 3 weeks followed by a week of site voting!

The Eccentricities of You

Precise by nature
Your fascination transfixed -
Within a realm only you can see

Bemused - I watch in awe
Your prowess of perfection
Unique perception
Causes my own mind to rewire its train of thought
Giving cause to question
My own reality - on all I see

Suddenly I feel renewed
Brewed from your enigmatic light
I am drawn ever more into your way of thinking
Sinking into your gaze
I am amazed

There within the core of all that drives your mind
I find the child inside
Smiling
Beguiling
I finally feel your grace

In haste
We embrace

You see me as I see you
I pull you through
Amalgamating our worlds -
You begin to unfurl

Together -
We find our place between the two
Guided by the eccentricities of you

CHERRY BLOSSOMS

The cherry blossoms bloomed
Last week, when I was away
And upon returning,
I found my town bathed in their sweet scent

Cherry blossoms remind me of spring
And they reminds me of you
Sweet and rosy and wrapping and twisting around me

The cherry blossoms returned to me
Will you?

she's above all of that

every poem has a poet, and every poet a muse
I am the poet , my wife is my muse
her love isn't like this or that
it has been written so many way
your lover is like every breath you take
comparing her to works of art
no master painter could capture my loves beauty
no sculpture could mold a peace of clay so elegantly
the sharpest chisel in a craftsman's hand
could ever capture my love amazing essence
compare all yours love to what  want
for my muse she is a perfect gift from above
so feel free to elevate yours, so  liken your muse to mine

Efflorescence

Burgeoning beauty robed with the seasons
the tender shoot is young and is pliant
roots twist and dance, reality deepens
risen from the loam, ever defiant

Vibrant blossoms form, her petals unfold
floral and demure, she remains vernal
fine spun skin is of the purest white gold
and through it all faith abides eternal

Her allure runs more than perianth deep
still, every thorn has its very own rose
thought is intentional, her vines must creep
inlaid with gilt reserved for pharaohs

Born long ago, burst forth from a cocoon
she stands tall, regal in her ageless grove
wreathed together, a glorious festoon
the wild scent of her grace a treasure-trove

Spiritual Changes

Speaking with spirits.
Constantly searching for more.
Question our life path.
Knowing the veil is thinning.
Our souls are all connected.
