Compostelle

She was on her way to Compostelle
When she picked up her first two shells
A sign of good luck for her
As it helped release the pain
And gave her courage
To go forward
On her trek
to God's
Way

Pilgrim

As the day roze she felt free to go
It would be a way with the bike
But she was set with a pack
And plenty of food too
Her bible as well
For the holy
And saintly
Trip to
Lars.

These are just brilliant! Far better than my (2) efforts thus far.

I've been asked if images are allowed, and decided that they are. I'll only be judging the words anyway - specifically, how well the poem flows and conjures up an image within the confines of the form.

Fly away

It is my hope and strong desire
To fly away around the world
To live, to breathe, to enjoy
To roam free and let be
To change what I can
And be happy
That I am
What I
Be.

When She Got On Stage

When she got on stage with the rest of
the band, she has been able to
belt out a song or two with
the same gusto as the
other members of
the band who gave
her the job
to start
with.

I was planning to judge it, but am very happy to let the community do so if competitors prefer.

Saw Him With A Possible Groupie

The band came over to pick up Kane
for rehearsals and saw him step
out of his house followed by
this chick who gave him the
guitar, planted a
kiss on him and
said in loud
voice "Call
me!"

Cast Upon Loveís Pyre (Nonet)

slipping past the guards of apathy
I steal your cool indifference,
casting it upon Loveís pyre
lest we remain frozen;
I give my heartís key
to lock away
your cold feet,
tempting
fate
