I've been inspired to start this contest by the lovely weather we've been having and the stargazing I did last night. Nature is a beautiful thing that we all should appreciate. Our Earth is beautiful place!
You may write any type of poem about any aspect of nature, or nature as a whole. As a fellow poet, I understand rhyming can often be a frustrating thing to incorporate, so it is not recquired :) I am looking for a heart felt piece that incorporates stunning imagery, so I feel like I am experiencing whatever it is you're describing. Youmay submit to me old workor write something new.Please have fun with this, and I encourage you to read other contestants' entries! Make booksie friends through this contest!:)
You may enter up to three pieces, but you may only place once! The due date is April 30th. Invite your friends and fans!
1st place- I will become a fan, and post a link to your booksie page on my profile and my blog. I will read 1 novel, 5 short stories, and ten poems, and comment on all! If I am a fan already, I will promote you in the messages I send to new Booksie members :)
2nd place- I will become a fan, read 1 novel, three short stories, and seven poems and comment on all!
3rd place- I will become a fan, read three short stories, and five poems and comment on all!
To get you in the nature-writing mood, here are some of my works posted on Booksie about nature: Universe, Seasons of the Heart, Little Tiny Swallow, Catfish, Death on the Horizon, A Meeting with the Goddess, and Barefoot Day. Also, here are some pictures! If you decide to use one of these pictures as the basis for your poem, please let me know which! However, you do not HAVEto use one.
Once you have your poem that you'd like to submit, post it's name in the comments and I'll come check it out on your page. Enjoy! I can't wait to see what all you talented writers out there have to show me! Please give it your all!
