Contest Description


Write a FREE VERSE poem using 10 words in 10 lines. NO MORE NO LESS!

I really don’t like free verse centered (hint hint)

Pick 1 theme below:

  1. Love
  2. Heartbreak
  3. Death
  4. Fear
  5. Spirituality (Does not have to be about God, or religion)

use to count words, or you fingers hehe

My example (but I expect yours to be much better)


Cradle me in soft linens so that I can vanish

from all the subtle worry I fear with such ease-

I knew not your dread when we married, o no

I did not, my sweet, so I shall bestow merriment-

You were so thirsty; so, I quenched with every desire

I could ever carry in my longing and ardent ways-

Jovial and spirited in riches of the heart are we.-

Ravished and relished in an artisan nirvana, hoping for all

God’s seeds be sewn with true conviction, faith and perpetuality.-

And you are my renown ebullient warmth

Date must be at bottom

NO names or initials

Remember…Free Verse Only

Check spelling and grammar

Not sure how many placements yet, most likely multiple 1st, 2nd 3rd


I still can’t get into my soup mail, so I apologize in advance

If you need to get ahold of me. you can message Dear Heart

or Silent One


Many thanks PS

May your month be filled with joy and kindness…
