Contest Description

What to Submit?

Hi, fellow Croutons,

Well, Easter will be upon us soon, and the children will be decorating eggs in schools across the globe. Thinking about this, and our imagination we poets used, contained in our mind, which isn't a visible human organ. I like to think of my mind as an egg shaped object.

So, if it was possible to decorate your mind, what materials would you use, what would the design be, would it reflect your personality or your wishes, your essence? Title your Poem 'Mind the Paint', so I don't accidentally read it before judging.

Any poetic form, minimum lines 14 (Sonnet) Maximum 24.

Illustrations welcome. Let's see a full Palette and box of trinkets and stuff.

Have fun.
