I' ll take a second place win in a Premier Contest any day..
I had no clue that it was a " Premier Contest " for the poetry site when writing and entering the contest..
Had I known I'd not likely have entered a sonnet, as they are usually too short to impress judges enough to rate as first place or even in top three -regardless of how good they are.---Tyr

Wisdom, Found In Looking Back

Ages ago, what fish might one have dared caught,
with bright rainbow nets and stronger bone hooks.
Adventure found , was such too highly bought
living so wild- rips more than shown in books!

Casting nets to gather more the huge blasts,
nights of love and mornings with deep remorse.
Nothing-not a damn loved thing ever lasts
yet one never knows Fate's wide, hurling course.

And such fine fish, spread in such glowing pools,
each always ripe to be plucked in due time.
Love lost, bitter pain for romantic fools
always searching for new land, better clime.

What of the deeper pools one never finds?
Saddest regrets, eat old and lonely minds.

Sky And Clouds May Water Our Soul's Life Tree

The truth was concealed with many branches
therein rest many roads to hell's fury.
How boring if man took no big chances
to avoid verdict from Fate's last jury.

Long roads strewn chest-deep with heavy boulders
often birth the much needed final strength.
We find burdens relieved on our shoulders
regardless of hidden pain and great length.

We can carry truth at heaviest cost
when our tree is watered with compassion.
For light's divine mercy tis never lost
if man lives by faith, not by greed's fashion.

Sky and clouds may water our soul's life tree
yet bearing fruit tis up to you and me.
