C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4216 comments You have until the 23rd of May to post a poem and from the 24th to around the 28th of May, we’ll vote for which one we thought was best!

Please post directly into the topic and not a link. Please don’t use a poem previously used in this group. Only one submission per person is allowed.

Your poem can be of any length!

This week’s topic is: Call of Nature

Thanks goes to Anne for suggesting the topic!

The rules are pretty loose. You could write a poem about anything that has to do with the subject/photo but it must relate to the topic somehow.

Most of all have fun!

Edward Davies | 1727 comments Title : Sweet Relief
Poet : Edward Davies

I just can’t hold it
Anymore
I think I’m gonna burst

I wish I never
Drank so much
To quench my stupid thirst

I’m miles away from
Anywhere
There’s not a loo in sight

It’s almost as if
Someone took
Them all away from spite

Look, there’s a tree
Over there
I think that just might do

Thank goodness it’s just
Number ones
And not a number two

I drop my fly and
Whip it out
Finally unclench teeth

I feel the rush, am-
ber fluid
It’s such a sweet relief

Connie (constance375) | 77 comments Title: The Call
Poet: Connie Fralick

Daybreak paints the snow;
A crystal world, aglow.
Trees lay glazed with silver light,
The wood, enchanting sight.

Stillness fills the air in an old, forgotten song.
Keep this moment close to remember all lifelong.
Take in the quiet creek, powdered bushes, and clear sky.
It is the small infinities that truly mystify.

Sweet Nature, it enthralls, and softly Calls to all;
Its overwhelming wonders, that of expansive sprawl.
I cannot say how long to stay,
But I will trust you’ll find your way.

The Call, it must be answered—but each in one’s own time.
It deserves your contemplation, that brilliant, golden chime.
Listen with young heart, respond with ancient soul,
But most of all, above the rest, know that you are whole.

Hi, guys! Obviously, I took this in a different direction than the other posts, but that's half the fun (seeing all the different ways the prompt is interpreted, I mean). Anyways, I just want to put it out there that I actually kept a rhyme scheme throughout the whole poem, so ha! That probably means nothing to you all, but I have so much trouble trying to stick to one (free verse is much easier), so this was good practice.

C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4216 comments I thought this prompt would cause creativity. :) There is so much to do with this one. To Anne: Great job!
