C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4309 comments You have until the 18th of July to post a poem and from the 19th to around the 23rd of July, 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: Rain

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!

I stared at puddles so long
a rainbow appeared

Marie (naturechild02) | 663 comments Sweat Like Rain

Her skin glistened in the sun
As she swung the ax again and again
Muscles bulged on bare arms
Mouth set in a determined line
Moisture rolled down her face
And I watched, enraptured
Jealous of her sweat
Drops coating her like fresh rain
Each bead clinging then moving
Caressing her flesh as I never would

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 658 comments You're welcome. :) I have been well. Just about to finish up a draft of my fantasy novel. Kind of at a standstill with Ruby at the moment, but I'm sure something will come up.

Hope things have been well with you too!

tears from sightless eyes
raindrops on my skin
wishing I was with you again

Garrison Kelly (cybador) | 9619 comments POET: Garrison Kelly
TITLE: Holy Mountains
GENRE: Death Metal Song
RATING: PG-13 for violence and swearing
PROMPT CONFORMITY: Bloody fountains, lightning, and pants-pissing can all have rain-like effects. If it seems like I'm trying too hard to shoehorn these songs into the prompts, it's because I wrote them before the contest even started. Enjoy!



VERSE 1
Bones and skulls scattered everywhere
Rotten flesh stinking up the fucking air
Is it a battlefield or cemetery grounds?
It’s a mass grave underneath the mounds
Torture and war have happened here
You can still hear the screams of fear
The gods above are having cold beers
As another mortal’s gutted with a spear

CHORUS 1
Holy mountains! Bloody fountains!
Shit-covered river will make you shiver!
Holy mountains! Come take a pounding!
Open wide as they skin off your hide!
Holy mountains! Holy mountains!
Holy mountains! Holy mountains!

VERSE 2
Those who dare make it out alive
Can’t shake the trauma even if they try
Nightmares as bloody as the real thing
Every deep gash, every whipping sting
Your sanity belongs on the holy grounds
Mind filled with schizophrenic sounds
Such sweet music to soothe you at night
The noose on your neck gets a little tight

CHORUS 1
Holy mountains! Bloody fountains!
Shit-covered river will make you shiver!
Holy mountains! Come take a pounding!
Open wide as they skin off your hide!
Holy mountains! Holy mountains!
Holy mountains! Holy mountains!

BRIDGE
Burn them down with a sadistic frown?
Laughable humor from the crazy clown
A permanent landmark of suffering and pain
A permanent reminder of pants-pissing shame

CHORUS 2
Holy mountains! Holy fucking shit!
Do cannonballs in the hellfire pit!
Holy mountains! Good god almighty!
Dance with the devil underneath lightning!
Holy mountains! Holy mountains!
Holy motherfucking mountains, bitch!
UGH!

message 11: by Edward (new)

Edward Davies | 1727 comments Title : I Really Hate The Rain
Poet : Edward Davies

I really hate the rain
It patters, and it pours
It gets into our brain
To try to stay indoors

I really hate the way
It drizzles, and it pelts
It ruins Christmas day
By cuasing snowy melts

It makes us feel upset
About the day ahead
It keeps us moistly wet
From toes up to our head

I really hate the rain
It showers and it sleets
It hails and causes pain
In buckets and in sheets

I really hate the rain
It streams and even floods
It gets into the ground
And makes it into mud

I really hate the rain
It patters, and it pours
It gets into our brain
To try to stay indoors
