    Does anyone know how the voting process works for the poem contest?I wonder if the person with the most friends wins. If so, I already lost.

      Hello dear! don't loss hope. never should you agreed that you've lost. you don't need friends to win this one. you only need an irresistable poem. with a great poem, you're unstoppable, but that does ... more

    We're going at this the wrong way.
    Vote for a needy person's poem. The $1,000 could be the start of a brilliant writing career for them, him/her.

      First of all, how do we know who's needy?Second, I really don't think it matters because from what I can tell, whoever has the most friends is going to win.

    Eurasian Hoopoe, commanding...

    My restless sleep interrupted by an anti-electronic alarm on and on
    At four hours and thirty two minutes in an antemeridian dawn
    Room temperature indicating centigrades twenty two. zero one
    Deep darkness unveiling clothes for bathing under the foothills of Namunukula Mountain

    Wake up dear, another day of destruction born
    We remind you haven’t settled yet nature’s premium
    See this mother earth yet to be burning
    Nor we tolerate, ready for duty we’re commanding

    Go, Go, Go, and pacify the minds of warrior human
    Soothing however, teach them eco-systems and plant protection
    Nature is the most powerful blessing teach your children
    We are hunting for preventing such destruction

    Glowworms signaling yet no construction danger zone demarcation
    Bees and wasps on alert ready to attack destructive giants anyone
    Fishes and butter fly dragons spying on forest burning
    You’re sleeping, sleeping, sleeping and sleeping

    Everywhere competition, ongoing profit bargain gaming production
    Fencing perched lands pointing supply water line
    World wide web space complication, busy communication
    Consuming jungle fruits and grain energy we voice spreading instant authenticating

    I hear that voice command from Karanda treetops nearby stream next to my room
    How can I identify she, thanking still darkness out zooming
    Fear and run away if my flash lights shoot on
    Silently murmuring I thanked her fine you’re encouraging

    Yes I am ready with my wisdom weapon sharpening act against corruption
    Worshiping all powers of spiritual pleading empower me too join them
    Wonderful is her shrieking demanding bird’s aspiration
    Voicing again and again do it sir, do it, do it, do it this is our nation

    Plot: Dusky morning an [Eurasian hoopoe] invisible power commanding.
    Source: Outside the poet’s country side sleeping shack at Pelgahathenna the foothills of Namunukula Mountain Uva Province Passara Srilanka.

    Ps.Karanda is an ingenious medicinal tree in south asian countries that grow well in tropical rain forests.In Buddha legend Karanda sticks used to substitute tooth picks after maha sanga almsgiving.

    I would like to invite you to read some of my poems, as I am a younger poet that could really use the opinions and criticism. I struggle to find people willing to read my work as they are not particularly happy poems. Thank you all in advance for your time! :)
