A pretty hard contest or at least I think so.  August 27, 2007 - July 22, 2008

Reading and Deliberating

Details

O.k I've read some good poetry on here. And I was wondering if somebody could work with some strange rules o.k. I don't care about subject matter. But here are the rules kind of like a sonnet and kind of not. (I'm extending this because of the mishap and now that I'm working can include a cash prize for those of you that will either re-enter your work or just try. Follow the rules or else your's don't count. I'll check them and re-check them to make sure that you do follow them. If your off a little bit I'll message you and it will be up to you to change your poem. 50 for first 25 for runner-up and 10 for third.

7 stanzas 4 lines each with an addtional couplet total lines then should be 30
12 syllables long lines

long short vowel sound. (you either start long or short the choice is yours)

okay now here's the tricky part you still with me.

The first word you use will ryhme or can be the same word for the next stanza only if it's a homonym.

The first word of the third and fourth stanzas have to rhyme or be a homonym.

The first word of the fith and sixth stanzas have to rhyme or be homonyms.

The seventh stanza has to ryhme or be homonym with the first word of the second line of the entire poem or in other words be the first word of the second line of the first stanza.

The first line should rhyme with the third. The second with the fourth. That's how all Stanzas should be.

The first five stanza have to deal with the five sense. The order of the senses doesn't matter. The sixth sense is optional extra points if tried.

The first stanza also must present a problem or worry. The seventh stanza will then answer this but not completly because the couplet will expande on the problem.

I think it's hard enough well good luck to those that try.
