Poetry contest - move me with your words and win SBI shares

in contest •  16 days ago

Some people are writers and some are painters.
Some people dance and some sing.
All people have an artist hidden inside.
I want you to show me yours.

I have decided to make my Sundays even better and I will make them better by using you. Every Sunday, there will be another contest for you to participate in. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is "to move me". We will start with poetry.

To move me means to capture all my attention, remove me from this world and lift me up to a higher place of vibration. I want to get the chills. I want to close my eyes and bask in the beauty that you have brought me. Do you know me? Do you know what I strongly believe the meaning of life is? Put a smile on my face, fill me up with ecstasy and that feeling of pure enjoyment. Make me produce the sound of om, mmm, and aaaa. Show me what pleasure is. Present me with the ultimate gift, a transformation to another state of being. Make me raise my hands or tilt my spine. Toss me into that river of emotion and make me experience the ultimate freedom. Allow me to feel the connection with your energy pattern.

Move me...
Show me your inner self,
your wild and free spirit.
Show me your higher self,
your nature self,
and make me feel it.
Show me your earth self,
your passion, and soul.
Show me your universe self,
your hidden self,
and discover yourself whole.
Move me...

Title of your post and your tags are complety up to you.

DO:

  • upvote this post
  • write a post containing your poem
  • write about life, energy, joy, inspiration, enlightenment, love, passion, growth, happiness, spirit, transformation, abundance, pleasure, spirituality, movement...
  • mention this contest in your post
  • post a link to your post in the comments to this one

DO NOT:

  • write about loss, grief, sadness, anger, hate, pain, war, death, politics, business, destruction, religion...
  • submit work that is not yours

The winners of the contests agree that their poetry will be read and recorded by me (with giving credit to the author), published in my next post and probably in one of the future ones when I mix poetry, painting, movement, singing, photography etc. winners into one ultimate "move me" video.

This contest starts on Sunday 09.09.2018. at 00:01 and ends on Sunday 16.09.2018. at 00:01. I am looking forward to all your entries and am sure that they will all be wonderful. There is no word limit. If you think you can move me with 3 words or 3000, do it, that is up to you. Plagiarism is not allowed, be creative, relax and get into your zone because only original works are allowed. There is no limit to your submissions either, you can have 1 or 10 songs to submit. Your style is your own and I will respect it as such. You can use rhyme or avoid it, slang or proper grammar, have or have not stanzas, it is all up to your own personal preference.

All prizes are SBI shares. If you do not know what that is, check out the profile @steembasicincome. You can find even more contests in their latest post: Contests for your weekend. In short, SBI stands for steem basic income and by having shares you are having upvotes from them for life. The more shares, the bigger upvote you have.

1st PRIZE - 3SBI
2nd PRIZE - 2SBI
3rd PRIZE - 1SBI

Additional:

EVERYTHING from this post-payout will be used for additional prizes in the following way; payout will be divided by 2. One half will be split 3 ways and used for additional prizes for the first 3 winners. The other half will be split among additional winners. If needed, I will round up the numbers to a bigger value so amount like 0.2 will be 1, 1.4 will be 2 etc.

EXAMPLE: Post-payout is 7 steem. 7/2 = 3.5 One half of 7 is divided by 3: 3.5/3=1.16666. This means that the first prize will now be 4, second 3 and the third 2. The other half of 7 is added with the rest from the first half: 3.5+0.5=4 and there will be 4 more winners receiving 1 SBI.

Bigger payout means more winners and bigger prizes!

I am the only judge of this contest and I will decide who the winners are based on how much their entries moved me. To know what I mean by "moved me" read the part of this post that explains it titled "What is move me contest?"

Good luck everyone,
KEEP YOUR SMILE ON!

What a wonderful idea, especially starting with Poetry where people can really let their creativity fly, recounting tales of days gone by or maybe even to delight by recounting the night they had a fright.

Thank you for your entry 💚

Awesome idea for a contest. I wish I had read this post before writing mine for today. All I got are goofy Twitter poems. But if you'll do this every Sunday, I'll keep an eye out.

hehe thanks for the opportunity to try it out

·

You dont' have to rhyme :)

just express your heart! it will be beautiful

·
·

Thank you it turn out good.. 😀

All i was thinking was it was just a free poem with no rules since no rhyming.

I have not written it before because i dont know how to.

I tend to write poetry about my sad moments, maybe this is a challenge to write about inspiration and other less moody emotions.

·

I know you are dark in your poetry, this could be a real challenge for you. Many people usually write when they are sad or bad in some way. There are far more sad poems than happy ones, that is why I made this contest 💚

A poetry contest? You know I'm in! Thanks for inspiring me to write childlike joy into this one, rather than melancholy or rebellion. ;)
