My latest win in a poetry contest was in a free verse contest! I rarely ever do free verse but
felt inspired for this one and it came out well.
My poem was awarded 2nd place and I was shocked indeed, since many of the poets entered primarily do free verse
and some do so exclusively.
Here is the contest results page as list at my poetry forum.-Tyr

My Imagined Vixen

My vixen is blue with gold bouncing in her hair
She swims in my mind like a lost mermaid
A storm brewing rapidly upon a calm ocean
Nights she lets loose with romantic favors
Touching my every desire in intimate ways
Eating my heart while holding me back each moment
She flies with birds while taunting the glowing moon
Commands stars to twinkle in rhyme with my moans
Strokes my ego while soothing my spirit
A vixen to the core and leaves me wanting ever more
Washing my feet while I marvel at her dainty feet
Singing my favorite songs with music from thin air
Whispers words that ease my soul and stokes my fires
No pains can stay when she caresses my aching mind
Ravishing beauty no other man has ever seen
Temptress that never fails to please and inspire

Mere words fail me when she holds my soul
An icing on cake a mile deep and wide
Sweeter than honey on a buttered biscuit
Smile that fades the stars and makes the moon cry

My vixen , my vixen we see eye to eye
She that hold my days in her hands
My nights seep into her bosom and cry for more
My vixen , my vixen, now and forever more
My vixen, her love I will always drink
And stroke her bouncing gold hair

Nice work, Tyr!

Funny... that's what I call Sharon - "My lil' vixen". She doesn't have golden curls, though, and she doesn't go for wigs.

Thanks.....
Write your lady some fine poetry and perhaps the rewards given will turn you into a full time writer my friend!!!
My wife does not write poetry but she loves to read it-especially my private writes to her! :beer: :beer:

P.S. My wife has very shiny jet black hair that I so dearly love(!), no blond curls at all but she forgives me my poetic license-Tyr

Another contest judged. I just barely placed into the top spot with a 9th place. I could have simply scored higher but certain things this judge wants done in her contests I refuse to do. Such as punctuation and overuse of certain type of metaphors. Still I am not complaining but my recent first place tie with this judge in another contest may have played a part in my getting 9th place instead first/second or third.
However, realistically, after reading all the winning entires, I'd go with 3rd or 4th place if I were doing the judging.-Tyr
