Poetry Contest

Three(3) per poet
We're really back! Congratulations to the winners from the last contest. Good luck to you all now.

--TOPIC of choice:
*Anything relating to SEVEN(7)

--Method of writing:
*in conjunction with the sylabic guidelines of
7-2-4-1-2-7

--Method of sustainable rhythm:
Extend your palm and count along the three divisions of your fingers. Each finger (excluding thumb) has 3 separate divisions, and is an easy way to count to 12 on both hands.

--Method of rhyme;
Rhyme is not required (this time) but is strongly encouraged. If you decide to TRY, be weary of how many times you rhyme, and when to begin and end.

--Method of reasoning:
*absolutely none--have at it in full battle dress. You are free to bash or boast (or both) in whatsoever fashion you chose.


--Method of picking winner:
*must be original,
*must enable the reader to be carried like a stream carries water
*must follow precise 724127 outline or will not even be considered as runner-up (even if Shakespeare wrote it)
*must convey thought structure higher than that of a sycophant. Be yourself, be genuine.

MAXIMUM OF THREE(3) ENTRIES PER POET.

FANTASTIC honorable mentions:

***Miss_Sub
Said Jonah to the lonely whale
"you sir
swallowed me whole!"
The whale
forgave
Jonah for his curious soul.

***geoff the cat
A liquid moonlight silhouette
She frets
A sterling probe
A moan
Alone
Her slow night's dance beneath her robe



-Entertain the intellect--Impress yourself--
Good luck

The Deadliest Sin

If sin was a true concept
I would
be gluttony,
for
no sin
describes the sheer Hell of me.

The Lord Hath Made

Sunday is the seventh day
it sleeps
coiled in dark God;
a
prayer
to the less significant.

Seven-Up or Knocked-up

Before sex education              
Girls used                                  
Seven-Up Pop                            
As
A douche                                  
Birth control Contraception    

Before sex education became acceptable, and birth control legal, women often used 7-Up to douche, after sex, to prevent pregnancy.  Thank God those days of hypocrisy are over.  But considering the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby decision, I fear we may soon return to that age of ignorance.

NEW SINS BORN

Purity fresh, sown by scorn
Stirred flesh
within soul's soil
Seeds
then spoil
Seven deadly sins are born

Beseech

Weeks diverging far from sight,
Betray
The heart,  like night,
Day.  
Aright
My wayward soul, darling, stay!
