I'd like you to write a small poem (no more than ten lines) on a huge theme... the universe. NEW poems only please.
Though your poem is small, make it vast and rich. Cherish and perfect every word. Make it feel and sound and be no less than amazing. Edit and re-edit. Craft with love. Be creative and original.
You don't have to write in any particular form, but you can if you like. But please, no prose, no formal short-form poetry (haiku, tanka etc), no acrostics.
And please, no religious themes.
Up to ten glory-drenched placements
Preparing Your Entry
As usual with me, please avoid revealing yourself in your styling by:
- Aligning your poem left (unless its shape is a critical ingredient)
- Avoiding using bold or italics throughout (although either may be used for emphasis)
- Writing your footer like this
Poems should be in English. Poems translated from other languages are not eligible, unless you wrote both the original poem and the translation.
