Contest Description

What to Submit?

An original new poem using these eight words.

1.Crystal 2.Gloaming 3.Frosted 4. Forevermore 5. Pathos 6. Valiant 7. Melancholy  8. Unpredictable

Any form is acceptable. 

Must be these words as written no changes.

There will be only ten placements as is a premium contest.

Minimum 8 lines, maximum 40 lines do not compromise coherence for brevity, this time no extra points for less lines.

Looking for coherence, inventive use of word pairings. Give me something out of the ordinary.

Please avoid cliches, please check spelling and grammar, a premium contest is not the place for sloppiness!

Please do not enter poems that do not conform to contest rules, it's a waste of your time and mine(as they will not be read). As per usual date at the bottom, no names please!

Enjoy and write me a beauty!
