Contest Description

This is a form of poetry I am trying to invent called Word Vision Poetry. It's a form of poetry where your title is just a word by itself, but up to ten lines long, you give a visual description of what the word means to you. You start with the word or have the word in the first line, then, in the second to tenth lines, you can only have up to eight words in those lines. You can also have up to eight words in the first line, too as long as the word is in there. I do not care if there is rhyming, as long as you can give a beautiful description of the word. I have five examples to show you what I mean. Example 1:​

Example 2:

NOTE: No names and dates on submissions.

New Note: If you put date on there, it will only lower your chances of winning.

Seven Honorable Mentions #11/29/2017 Update: (Instead of 12 because there can only be a max of 10 winners. This is the first contest I have ever hosted so I didn't see this coming at first.)
