I have been noticing a lot of poetry on the site recently, and I thought it would be nice to have a friendly little poetry competition. There will be a weekly theme, and the entries will be judged by one of the moderators or administrators. This week's theme will be "Water." The deadline is Saturday, August 2nd. The winner will be awarded 25 Armor Points.

Well, an artist always has to be flexible, and able to accomplish the task at hand, no matter what.

On another note, I guess no one appreciates haikus D:

@Carlie
One of those military submarines, or one of the scientific research submarines? Either way, I'm a little too claustrophobic to go in one

@Klaushouse
That's cool, I hadn't noticed that

@Estel
What in hell have you been doing? you just jumped well over 5,000 AP in a 1 to two day period, unless I am hallucinating! That should definately be considered. I mean, wood squire to gold knight? 13 Merits 483 game comments and 174 games rated. Well well..

And also, I motion the next contest should be on hardships of emotional or monetary issues. Broad issue that really requires thought and deeper emotions.

What are you talking about? I just got over 2,00Ap, and I've gotten that over a two month span. 483 game comments? Those are just regular comments, AND game comments.174 games rated? I've only got a bit over 100. What have you been looking at?

You really can't force an artist to do anything.

An artist decides their topic, because they believe it to be great in value.

Thats why most fiction books are just so dumb. They are just done for money and they turn out as crap.

I would beg to differ about being forced... taking art classes, you are often given a subject and asked to elaborate. What the artist *does* with that subject shows their true skill. If they are able to manipulate the subject into something they believe to be valuable, that shows a great deal of creativity.

my entry.

We live for love
we fight for love
we die for love

and often, love is even stronger
than the will to keep yourself alive
despite the will to survive

as the people that are the hardest to love
usually are the ones who needed the most
afraid to eventually become a ghost

true love is pure
pure as the water
often a motive, for a vengeance slaughter


cheers.

Haha, the theme of this week is water, and the only thing you did to relate was make a simile between love and water. I don't really think it will count, but it's up to Ubertuna.

Estel, yeah, I though on that, and eventually became weird.

But notice one thing, in the end, if the ultimate conclusion of this poem is that love is pure as water, the poem that seems to be about love, you can almost replace love for water, and it kinda have some sense on it.
It's ok if doesn't count, I had fun doing it.

cheers mates.

The water flows threw the river bank
as it goes to the new filled tank
refreshing the mind and even the soul
keeping me alive without a toll

The ocean pollution is ruining the earth
no more water that will break for birth
I hope for nothing more than the suns rays
along with a fresh glass of water to stay

One last wish before I go
as long as I let you know
chances will come and go
as long as you keep the water flow

Haha, the first time I read that comment, I thought you menat that you could substitute every, "water," with, "love."

It's still a great poem though!
