17 is the Lucky Number

idyllic fake smile, an empath death holds a supine body twisted in the folds lamenting memories seep through the pain where incidental weakness falls like rain ten fold the weeping willow tree's own bane veneration seeps with crimson tinged night as her aura blends with the fading light july 15, 2019

It appears I missed a lot while I was away. It seems congrats are in order but this poem was a winner in my eyes regardless of any contest. Wonderfully written.

Thank you Chris... this was a tough contest...we only had so many lines to fit the given words, rhyme is more difficult for me to begin with, but sometimes i like to challenge my muse :) hugs

Sandra, you did a great job. I thought to myself "hey, these words sound familiar." Then I remembered this word list. Not easy to do in such a limited line count. I had trouble eliminating until I went from 8 to 7 lines. Good luck in the contest!

Thank you John, this was a very challenging write to use all the words in 7 lines of 10 syllables that rhymes :) hugs
