Winners of the December Contest;
1st place; Genner
2nd place; Loesewies Boterslag and child of the other side



Hello everybody and welcome to a new English Poetry Contest!
This challenge will be organized every month, by Marlie (Child of the other side) and Charlotte (Sweet Hermione).

The idea is very simple. We decide the subject, you write the poem. (And of course, weíll try to make an entry as well.) This can be anything thatís inspiring; another poem, a lyric, a title, a picture, a word, etc. Weíll try to vary the subject as much as possible.


Every participant has to maintain the following rules:

    - You are not allowed to write more than one poem per contest
    - The poem must be yours
    - The poem must have something to do with the subject. Please write a few words above/below your poem to tell us a little about it (just like you usually do)
    - Donít comment on other people, you can do that via the pb-button or during the voting
    - Donít make your poem too long, 5 pages about one subject is boring
    - Let someone beta it. There are many beta-readers on HPF and Cotos, TONKS and SH are willing to assist people who do want to compete but are not that good in English. With the right words your poem reads a lot easier. Donít be ashamed just pb
    - You must send your poem to SH or to Cotos; youíre no longer allowed to post it by yourself

About the voting:

    - Donít vote for yourself nor before SH / Cotos give permission. If you do your vote won't count
    - Explain with more then 15 words why youíve chosen a certain poem. ďI love itĒ wonít do
    - You only have three votes. The first vote will be 3 points, the second vote 2 points, and your last vote will be 1 point. We will count all these points per person. The three poets with the most points are the winners. Please, place these votes in the same post and think before you make a choice, we donít appreciate cheaters
    - You have to vote before the given date, if you cast your vote later it doesnít count

Well, those were the rules and now the most important part; PRIZES!

1st place - 40 sickles
2nd place - 30 sickles
3rd place - 20 sickles


No one can win the first price more than 3 times in a row. If so, SH / Cotos will decide what to do. I hope you all understand why we do this.


The subject of this month is chosen by Genner, the winner of the December contest. The subject is this line; The memory of lightwaves

The task is simple; you can choose whether you write a poem about the the whole sentence/one of the words/the subject/the first thing that pops up in your head (yes, it must have something to do with these words, so chocolate, unfortunately :"), won't do.)

Please send your poem between the 4th and the 26th of January.
And you can vote between the 27th and 1st (24.00) of February.


We wish everybody good luck and lots of fun. If you have any suggestions, tips, notes or ideas; feel free to use the lovely pb-button, itís begging to be pushed.

Charlotte (Sweet Hermione) and Marlie (Cotos).

1st Poem

Hard subject this month! I had a pretty hard time figuring out what Lightwaves are. It probably has a very obvious meaning, one that I'm not aware of, but I've made up my own meaning. I think 'the memory of lightwaves' means a memory of better times. So I made up a man, who was happy once. He was in love, married perhaps, but something went wrong, and now he's all alone. I wanted to write about not wanting to think about the way it was, 'cause it's just to confronting.

---

He looks into the broken mirror
A bleeding fist, a bleeding heart
His reflection
Distorted
Alien
Tears of fury form in his eyes
Though he shall not cry
Not anymore

He looks into the broken mirror of what was
And sees her face
Beautiful
Radiant
Happy
He collapses onto the ground
Though he shall not cry
Not anymore

He curses the tears that run down his cheek

Dear fellow poets,

as you might have noticed, there are not many people who entered this contest. Therefore, SH and I had two options. We could either run this contest for another month or close it and open a new one. We've decided to do the last because this is a monthly contest. Plus we don't think many others will join.

We're very sorry for those who did compete, so I want to thank those two who made an entry! And we also want to say sorry to Genner because he/she did her best on creating this subject.

The February contest will be opened asap.

SH and Cotos
