 Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem on any theme. THE FORM ACCEPTABLE IS QUATERN. THE FORM IS ON THE PS.

Here is an example of my poem:

Standing By The Ocean

Standing by the ocean, I cry

To be rinsed of my fatigue

To be laved of my thoughts and aims

To be rinsed of my hopes and dreams


Then to be drowned in your sameness

Standing by the ocean, I cry.

Oh, Ocean, take me from myself

And let me lose myself fully


In incessant churning waters

Against the rocks and the clumping

Standing by the ocean, I cry

To rinse over and away my brain.


Let my brain rinse over and away

Till I am left empty that I was

All I knew or was or wished to be.

Standing by the ocean, I cry.
