These are our choices for this quarter of 2010..

for the Honorable Poem Award.. ..

Lest We Forget

"We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender"
- Winston Churchill
Please dedicate a little of your poetic minds to remembering the '11th November 1918' but not only that day but the end of WWII and the wars that came after and the war that continues. May our troops return and may the world find some solace and peace from war one day soon.

With Change In Mind

Politicians, celebrities, the man on the street--everyone seems to be talking about "Change" these days. We've heard it from one side or the other for years. This week, write a poem about what "Change" means to you. What kind of changes would you make to the world, your life, society, or the nature of mankind? Stretch your mind and dig deep for this one!

Haunted House!

As spirits roam the neighbourhoods at night,
Let loose upon the Earth till it be light...
~Nicholas Gordon
As a child there is always that haunted house on every street at Halloween which nobody wants to knock on the door of but always curiousty wins out (or a dare from a friend), remember back when you were a child;
the rushing heart, dry mouth, howling moons, crooked trees...
write a poem about your first and last steps to the haunted house and what's behind the door!!!!

Impractical Jokes

On Halloween, many people like to set up scary situations, spooky sounds, moving scarecrows, and more, in order to scare the dickens out of people, be it trick-or-treating children, or partying adults. Sometimes, however, these things can backfire. Write a poem about one of these practical jokes going horribly, horribly wrong!

Humanity!

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Although the words of this great man have brought us a long way and opened many eyes over many centuries now, today racism and war tragically curse the world, even the streets where we live, still. This week I would...

Chaos!

This week your creativity can make us laugh, cry, sigh - any or all of these. Imagine life takes a sudden spin while you sleep. Your day begins topsy-turvy and everything you knew as usual is now "contrary". For eg: left is right, up is down, tomorrow is yesterday: it's your choice. Write about the chaos (or fun) this causes.

A Matter Of Perspective

This week, something to stretch your imagination a bit. Write from the perspective of an inanimate object from any fairy tale or children's story. Are you Cinderella's glass slipper, tired of smelly feet? Perhaps you're a bowl of porridge, the white rabbit's watch, an oar from the boat in "The Owl and the Pussycat." There is no shortage of choices for you this week. Have fun and be creative!!

Fear and Regret

Week 21: Ends 8/11/10

"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one."
Elbert Hubbard

We all shelter regrets and fear we may make another one,
mistakes that haunt our past hinder our future.
I ask you to be as honest as you can in expressing a piece of poetry that reflects
on a time you either deeply regret or has kept you from persuing something for fear.

Please do not use the words And, But and Because in your poem!
