Poetry Challenge #75
« on: April 28, 2013, 07:51:06 AM »
I want . . . 'perfection' ;D

Whatever qualifies as perfection in your opinion -- please write a poem about it. Any style, free reign. Away you go!

One week for entries -- so you have until next Sunday midnight before closing. Please PM me with your entry by Sunday May 5th.

Do we have to accept the uncomfortable position of temporary monarchy as a condition of entry, or can we more modest plebs just have a free rein instead?  Just checking, seeing as you are in search of perfection ;-)

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Please Gyp, don't confuse the Poet
She has a temper, tho doesn't even know it
She mentioned the reign
and then you said rein
I took my kingly-umbrella-glass for the Moet.


heh heh.
Fare thee well Skip. We're all 'Keening' now. xbx

As usual I am late, but I have to take part ... easier to congratulate the winner than to write a poem... ::)

Congratulations  Sio! :) Nice poem, enjoyed reading it.

Thank you sugy.

Mr Gyp -- would I do a typo? :o The little 'g' just wanted some exposure.

If ruling the world is what does it for folk, I'm happy for the mistake to stay. :D
