For what do you mourn? Is it a personal loss, the situation in which you may find yourself or the world at the moment, a lost pet? Anything at all...using any format of poetry: free verse, blank verse, limerick, sonnet, haiku, organized or unorganized--classical or contemporary. Line limit--25...Word Limit--within reason--your reason, not mine.
a. DO NOT use the following words: any of which will eliminate your submission
1. Black
2. Dead, Death, Dying
3. Soul
4. Heart
5. Tears or Crying

BE ORIGINAL. MAKE THE READER SEE AND FEEL THESE WORDS WITHOUT HAVING TO READ THEM.

b. Tell us how you grieve. Tell us what you grieve. Is it a celebration? Is it an end or a beginning? Is it a feeling of freedom? Of course, it will all be contingent on where your focus lies within your piece.
