New Contest Open - Metaphorically Speaking


Blog Posted:9/7/2012 8:13:00 AM
Hello All! It's time for another Free Verse contest. This contest is for Free Verse Only. What I am looking for is a poem that tells me something about yourself, an experience you've had, or an emotion you feel, but wrap it completely in metaphor. Entries must be a new poem. Any length is acceptable. Any tense is acceptable, past, present, or future. It may be a true story or completely from imagination. That' don't matter much, just knock me out with your metaphors! I am really looking forward to reading your entries. Come on, gang, show me your stuff! Love to all, Catie :)

Please - do not put names, or any identifying marks on your entry. I prefer to judge blindly.
