Simply Poetry  January 27, 2009 - February 13, 2009

Reading and Deliberating


I love poetry, it's as simple as that. Whether it be a short, sweet, to-the-point poem or a rather lengthy one, it doesn't matter. All I want is a poem. This contest is actually going to be sort of like a way to get my mind off of the countdown of days until I get to see my boyfriend for Valentines Day. Knowing me, I'll probably update this contest everyday to post how many days is left. Anyways, my boyfriend is going to help me decide on the winners. Both of us love reading and writing (we're actually working on writing a book together). He will be here the day before Valentines Day but I'm going to make the due date the day after Valentine's Day. Anytime of poetry is accepted!

(( Any poem entered in a contest created by either myself or Orahemae December may be used in our upcoming book "Third Hour" with the authors permission. ))

Update:: Since seeing how many submissions I've already gotten, I have decided to move the deadline up by two days. It is now Friday the Thirteenth which is the day that my boyfriend gets here. This now gives us as much time as we need the five days that he's here to judge the contest.

[[ UPDATE ]]
James and I have been really packed for time while he's been here. Spending time with him is just simply amazing. I promise that we will try our hardest to get the contest winners decided soon. There are a lot of poems to go through.


Knowing that you have the ability to write an amazing poem!
