December Contest

This month we write about Life, its ups and downs. Although it doesn't have to be based on fact at least a few hints of the truth of your life should be within. Any style, any length. Sharpen those quills and have fun!

November contest winner

I hope you will all join me in congratulating Eumolpus for winning the November contest with his sonnet "Starting From Scratch. Below is his winning entry :

Starting from Scratch (Sonnet contest)

When was the world not total madness,
When did everybody start complaining?
The meat is overcooked or it’s raining.
The emperor is married to a hag, so sad!

It’s time for boys to test skills in battle,
It’s time for girls to breast feed babies.
The old ones die of sadness or disease
While the bells of madness rattle.


Please forgive the lateness of this announcement. The winner of the Oct. contest is Mark for his poem "When Autumn Leaves.". His poem is right below and I hope you will join me in congratulating Mark... stan

One of my wishes still vivid in mind
Is of Autumn nights with your hands so kind
And kisses among musty leaves
Return from beyond choppy seas

Com'on folks!...

Everyone gets upset that they don't get critique and comments, but no one wants to reciprocate. Even if you are a newbie, you should make an effort to at least comment and let the author know that some one has read their work. Who wants to stick around and post; when there is no interaction. If no one cared about it, then everyone would just sit home and write for themselves! We have had this discussion many times over the years, and things improve for a while, but... after a week or so, things go back to the way that it was!
