A Fond Memory

A dream on my mind.
A far distant memory.
A smile on my lips.

Short Simile poem by Duke Beaufort| Details | |

words matter

A relic or the missing link?
You're like “Plato” they say—Do they think
I'm that colossal 
Or a sentient fossil—
A “Play Dough” primordial stink?

Short Simile poem by Lauren Cavanaugh| Details | |


Your eyes twinkle, 
Like a star in the sky. 
You hair is curly,
Like the waves on the sea. 
Your lips are,
As soft as a baby's skin.
Your face,
Makes the world spin round

Short Simile poem by Justin Benassi| Details | |


Are we not all
The night sky for our atoms,
A brilliant display for our elements,
A grace for our composure?
All are vivid; All are rich,
But as with any star,
Dimmer with distance.

Embers of a Black Heart - Five Lines

I set alight a fire burning bright
It was a blaze of hope, of faith
Having no tinder, I thought I might
Burn my heart; and smoke billowed, wraith.
I whittled at the carbon fuel, chipping as its lathe.

Struggles and success, Sufferings and happiness, Dreams and Goals building to life; Like colours of the rainbow making light.
A blessed day for you my dear readers :) Cheer Up, God bless

Short Simile poem by Marissa Faries| Details | |


If only I had stolen as many hearts, as I have stolen things.
Unfortunately, as soon as I learned to like things better than people,
I realized the hearts of others would only someday
Become just as broken as my own.

Short Simile poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

Sweet Dreams, Love

Watching you
Falling asleep's like
Watching day break
And stars fade
Into early dawn gray
It's as soft as the sunset
Sure as the rising sun

So sleep well
Dear i'll be here in the morning
I see those tired eyes closing
Have sweet dreams, my love
My dear

Short Simile poem by simon cooper| Details | |



Saturnine sleeper of the night,
Soaring slowly, out of sight,
Sleekly shadowing the gloom,
Silent harbinger of doom,
Innocent assassin, surreptitious, sly,
Stainless scandal slipping by,
Scything swiftly through the dark,
Hark the herald warning: Shark.

Short Simile poem by Andy Craig| Details | |


The stars seem hidden,

 yet I know they are

 out there. I have seen

 them on clear nights,

 bright wonderful twinkling

 starlight. It shows the

 vastness, the extraordinary

 feat of our Heavenly Father.

 It brings upon me a smile

 of delight.

Short Simile poem by Jeffrey Forman| Details | |


There’s a person I know that’s true to her smile,
sincere, genuine, unselfish in style.
A person that encourages with kindness that’s real, 
with words that inspire and a faith that 
will heal.
Benevolent in heart, always positive in view,
this my dear friend... is you!

Copyright © Jeffrey Forman

Short Simile poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |


A smile becomes too hard too hold
When waterlogged and under pressure
So my face crumples in
And folds up into new patterns
I've never never let you see before
Transparent as rice paper, delicate;
Not so graceful as a paper crane
Near as fleeting as a paper boat
Vanishing downstream

Short Simile poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

The Dawn Broke Like A Heart

The dawn broke like a heart,
In shades of violet deep as violence
That bled into the night...

The sun rose like a love affair,
Sky scarlet with a jealous blush
As the first light burned like lust...

The day came like a nightmare,
Drowning in a blue deeper
Than you've ever seen...

Copyright © Cameron Hartley

Short Simile poem by Emile Pinet| Details | |

A Spontaneous Reaction-

your smile
even more
when it's not practiced,
but tugs the corners of your lips
as a spontaneous reaction to my presence,
for it immediately solicits a genuine smile of my own in return.

A eight line “Fibonacci” poem with a syllable count of
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21

A poem is more than words that rhyme; it's not some gum sold for a dime A poem should speak with heart and soul, it tickles minds and can console. Verse with no aim is like a crime. 25 June 2015 Five Lines / Metaphors and Simile Contest Sponsor: Sara Kendrick
