DISCLAIMER - Yes, I know that the Steemit logo has changed, but I like the old one more and do not want to change it :)
My Greetings To You!
Steemit Poetry Contest takes a short break - week or two. I need to solve some issues in reality. In any case, I'll try to resume as soon as possible!
The winners of the Steemit Poetry Contest #16
1st Place - "Image In Nations" by @mdbrantingham
I magine nations fearlessly entwined,
M obile citizens and open borders,
A narchies transparently inclined,
G overned only by internal orders.
I magine nations bound by common will,
N ot twisted by the motives of a few,
A narchy empowered to fulfill
T errestrial potentials anew.
I magine nations coming together
O bligated by the common weal,
N ecessitated by a love of brother,
S ociety embracing what is real.
2nd Place - "Imagination" by @boatsports90
We wake up to nothing but silence
There is no harm, there is no violence
Our news is happy and free of fear
If only this time was a little more near
We make it through another day
There was no war, there was no betray
Our family is peaceful and at ease
If only this time came with the breeze
We lay down and dream through the night
There was no wrong, but only right
We all know the desired destination
But for now, it’s only in our imagination
3rd Place - "I'm a genie" by @diebitch
I traipsed along the wave
of a chocolate covered sea,
plucked a candy apple
straight from the tree.
Jumped high,spoke to the sky
on a bubblegum trampoline,
hid away from the world,
till the sky turned citrine.
Reality stuck out its foot
tripped imagination,so it fell
down to my officious office
proclaiming ”Welcome to hell!”
4th Place - "FAR AWAY" by @kivar
Eyes closed, i wander far away,
reality is dark, but in my dreams nights are days,
I never stumble, I never fall,
I'm revived by the waves of an open shore.
Far away in that world i see,
Foot steps of man on an open sea,
All hands equal, all hearts true
Fear dancing away to an endless tune.
Mysteries, open for all to see,
Happiness and joy for all to feel,
Wishes granted out in the open sky
Till my eyes open and my dream fades by.
5th Place - "The Man Who Reads A Thousand Books Lives A Thousand Lives" by @calluna
These dust lined shelves serve to hide
Secret passages to the other side
Bound between leather faced plates
Distant worlds and adventure awaits
Pages brush beneath the skin
Echoing of the lands within
These characters serve as incantations
To summon a world of another's creation
Portals flit between vellum leaves
Bound by the spine to their sleeves
Pathways forged by ancestral guides
Scribe the way to the other side
6th Place - "I am imagination" by @dmilliz
Listen as I say, imagine if you may
your desires manifesting right here this day
you have to have faith and be absolutely sure
these are the traits that I do adore
I give to the rich, the wicked and the poor
as long as they ask by knocking on my door
Where is this door that I so speaketh
It is between your ears, no illusive secret
knock by believing the scripts that you play
motions in the mind shall manifest this day
be the role in the realm without
be bold be confident never you doubt
I wish everyone good luck and creativity!
Let's make STEEMIT more interesting and varied together!
Sincerely, Terry Craft.
