CONTEST BATTLES I am a child in weaving poetry, trying and trying my arms of bravery. Hundreds, I posted to jail your eyes to cease a moment; raise your vives! Diving to swim in pools of poem challenges, I plunge to learn and thread the verses unafraid to anyone, competing from no one but myself! A rainbow topics curve to tickle my brain even sending triggers to unlock any gain. Contests' title to the extent blow my peace with the inspiration that afire my train. It ignites me to ink water and blood masterpieces though some of the rules crack my skull but yes! YES, still, I am all enthralled! A mile long smile I have if my poem bags the top podium place with my name only one on that rank as if I have done a slam dunk. This means I understood the rules and satisfied the judges' muse but if I plank and my name none at sight-- a little dismayed then later I'm alright Those honorable mentions, those N/A's, no place even, that I don't really care!!! Bleh! (smile with tongue out! lol!) THOSE ENCOURAGED ME ANYWAY: to write and write! to inspire others! to free my thoughts! to soar on places! to paint in words! Never quitting 'til I gain some points, adding and adding tons of vibrant hues to slowly, slowly relish a life breathing write with a hope that soon-- kindles again a good fight! ©O. E.

    I love how you've encompassed the workings of the contest battles on Poetry Soup. Indeed they are challenges, and as Jan commented, we are here to write, and more importantly learn from each other. This is what makes us all special in our own little way. Regarding the contests, I enter what I like theme wise, if I get one view, one comment, I've won. Miss Olive, you keep that quill close at hand and carry on doing what your doing, and I shall follow your poetry always - James :) x

    I do love the writes for this contest Olive - think we all feel the same way about N/S's and HM's and to see your poem on the podium is great but the most important thing is we are writing for our pleasure and other's read our works so its a win win situation even if we don't get placed - good luck in the contest:-) hugs jan xx
