Introducing our "Passion" Poetry Competition
Passion: "A very powerful or compelling feeling, for example of sexual attraction, love, hate, anger, or other emotion."
We are looking for poems, which convey the emotion of passion. For this competition, they do not necessarily need to be overtly sexual in nature (although they can be if you wish!).
A modern day equivalent of ‘Wild Nights’ by Emily Dickinson (surprisingly racy for the early 1800's), would surely catch the eyes of our judges:
"Wild nights! Wild nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Futile the winds
To a heart in port,
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.
Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!"
We are deliberately keeping this competition open to interpretation. There are no minimum or maximum word limits.
All our standard story contest rules apply. All characters must be over the age of 16.
This competition is being run, as a tribute to one of our longest serving members, DirtyMartini, who sadly passed away recently. Poetry was one of his passions.
The $250 prize money for this competition, will go to one of DM's favourite charities, The Woodbridge Animal Group.
On top of the Premium Memberships, each winner, will also be given a "DirtyMartini" Profile Badge.
Winner: Platinum Membership
Second Place: Gold Membership
Third Place: Silver Membership
