Sometime ago there was a poetry contest and I've lost track of the thread. Does anyone remember it?
Hmmmm dunno... but here's a poem to tide you over until someone finds it.
Little Pieces of Me
Everyday they chip away tiny pieces of me.
A little here, some off over there.
Society at large.
Mothers, children, strangers.
Those casual acquaintances
who judge your very being.
Incompetent justices passing verdict on my life.
Chip, chip, chip goes their internal pronouncements.
Their arrogant stares. Virtuous countenances.
I am unmolded by them.
Even the ravage of time is no match for them.
They seek to destroy from within
weakening the foundation that is me.
Leave me now, you cruel vultures
picking at my bleached bones!
For I wish to gather my pieces
and retreat to the harbor of my mind.
Where I will stay.
There I will hoard the shards of my sanity.
Safe from the monster
you have become.
I'll pitch one in....
My own thoughts are plotting,
Plotting against me.
Thoughts of death decend,
Drowsily, as I sleep.
Sleep once dreamless,
Now in dreams, is all you are.
A Poem by CityGirl
Chicken poop is everywhere-
In the coop and in my hair.
About the time I start to rant
I'm thankful they're not elephants.
Was it Purple chickens Silkie poem contest?
Nope, it was posted by a school teacher.
Darn, i dont know then Opa..i just tried a search..all i came up with was a "why do you love BYC" writing contest.. sorry! Wish i could help ya out..
Two more simple favorites...
I'm a poet
Even though I don't know it.
Nor do my feet show it.
Look up yonder,
Taters and carrotts
Growin' together in the field.
Birdie, Birdie in the Sky
Why'd you drop that in my eye?
I'm not sad
I won't cry
But aren't you glad
That cows don't fly?
