An Entry into the Poetry Competition for November

Our Garden

By: Joe Attanasio



We placed a trellis in our yard,

To make a garden all our own.

A place to write our poetry.

A dream shared, heart to heart.


Ivy climbed the trellis,

Flowers grew and blossomed.

Together on the hidden bench.

We scribbled out our prose.


As light faded at dusk,

Eyes forced to leave the pages.

Glancing each other, darkness falling

Creativity transformed to lust.

Nice. This is so random, but made me think of the cialis commercials, "when the time is right"... hey, you don't have two bathtubs out there do you?

Your a funny guy with a strange dry sense of humor. Exactly the kind I prefer!! I love your comment.

Thanks for the read and comment.

Nice, an idyllic day explained with apparent simplicity, but so cleverly. I wish you many idyllic days.

I appreciate the comment. You know about the poetry competition right? Christian Taylor puts it on, he gives everyone the same 5 words (dream, lust, garden, dusk, and poetry) and you 8-15 lines to make a poem using only each word only once and no more then 1 word on a line.

You should see his page and enter! it is great fun! you have untill 11/22 or 80 people have entered.

With my part in the judging now done, I get the chance to look around and see what the other poetry entries look like...

This poem is very well-written and your lines are perfect! Great use of words and excellent use of making this poem have an emotional punch! Good job and good luck!
