    Default Small Poetry Challenge

    This is a trial for a potential poetry contest in the (possibly, near) future.

    The challenge is to write a poem on any subject and in any style of your choosing however, it must contain at least one of the following for a cinquain or haiku and ALL of the following for other styles.

    simile - a comparison of an object/s using "like" or "as". E.g. He was as cool as a cucumber
    metaphor - a comparison an object/s using forms of the verb "to be" such as "is" or "was". E.g. She was a tornado
    personification - giving human features to inanimate objects. E.g. The leaves danced in the wind.

    For now, there's no time limit and all entries will receive 1,000 Gil.

    [Edit] To be clear this challenge is not really a contest, there will be no voting and no winner. Everyone gets 1,000 Gil as long as they meet the requirements of the challenge.

    The Reason
    The ash covers the hillside as the city comes down,
    A lone figure rises as he sees his destroyed town,
    All his reasons were just and his plans rock solid,
    But in the end he had failed and his friends were much worse,
    Now he is just a battered dog in a hellish cage,
    He walks the burning streets in search of the one thing that holds true,
    This light in the tunnel which will surely pull through,
    He knows it's there but isn't sure where,
    With this in mind the figure pulls through,
    He searches not as prey but like a wolf or a hound,
    He will chase the light until his reason is found
    The city may sleep while he does not,
    His dream you see is much more than thoughts.

    Set made by me
    "Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's going to burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm going to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

    @OminousCloud: Wait can you repeat that? Are we supposed to have cinquain or a haiku incorporated into the poem, or are we supposed to have a simile, metaphor, and personification in the poem?

    Also what is the limit on the amount of entries you can enter?
    If Minecraft had a Japanese intro.

    Your poem needs to have a simile, metaphor and personofication. All three of those must appear in there somewhere. The exception is, if you write in a cinquain or haiku style then your poem only needs one of those three.

    You can submit multiple poems but you will only get the 1,000 Gil once.

    I hope that helps

    Rainbow Upside Down

    Your smile [is]
    A rainbow [upside down]


    Your frown is like
    the contour line
    of the crescent moon

    laying there in the sky
    drifting in the sea
    Absorbing into the clouds
    causing them to weep
    .

    Your blink is like a defense mechanism

    You hide those eyes to hide your soul, to hide that hole
    in your spirit. The winds whisper whimsical songs
    to the willing ear. Take the time to listen, you just might hear it.

    Your eyes speak an encyclopedia words
    While your lips speak words unspoken
    Your mind speaks of the silence and vacancy
    Taking residency in your soon to implode heart.

    Actions speak louder than words
    So I've heard
    But those emotions connected to the actions
    are
    what
    speak
    the
    LOUDEST.

    Sea of Despair

    The Sea of Despair
    Beckons towards its deadly waters
    Perhaps a chance to sleep…
    Forever.

    The sky weeps,
    The waters crave
    Souls of the unfortunate challengers

    Braving sailors take the challenge
    Enchanting waves dancing like belly dancer
    Captivate the crew
    Sinister grin cast upon the sea
    As the wind blows a sound of laughter.

    The minutes turn to hours
    The days turn into months
    The crew starts falling
    One by one
    A splendid feast for the starving sea.

    A jagged, rocky passway
    And a windless expanse
    Ferocity of thunderstorms
    Terror of the night.

    Yet all is said and done
    A single crew member survives
    But he will live to tell the tale
    Of that horrid sea of despair.
