November 2011 IBPC Poem Submissions
Interboard Poetry Competition

Please post your submission for the IBPC (Interboard Poetry Community) Competition. The IBPC is an international monthly poetry competition between many poetry boards/forums around the world. Submissions will be accepted until November 30 at 8 p.m. est

By submitting your poem here, you give your consent to follow all IBPC rules.

When entering be sure to check out the current judge Here to get a feel for the type of poems they like. It will help you to create this month's poem. About every 3 months the judges change. They are usually publishers and editors of literature magazines on and off line.

Limit One Poem Per Poet.

IBPC competition regulations allow the submission of only one poem per poet, per monthly competition. This means that if you have entered a poem elsewhere, you may not enter it, or a different poem, here.  It causes confusion, extra work for the judges, and can delay the winning announcement.

Why don't you submit your poem in the Poetic AX for a little tweaking and polishing?

Mother Lies Dying

Mother lies dying in the next room
Memory-shadows cast by the moon
Reveal the hidden sins
My life had always been

I was always protected and pedestaled
Given pearls and thornless roses
Drowned in champagne bubbles
Even though I am draped in diamonds
My flesh feels cold as snowflakes

Mother lies dying in the next room
My soul is a frigid sapphire
My arms long for summer heat
I need to feel

Arouse in me some sympathy
Wash me in your brine
Rinse me in your blood
I yearn for sunshine
And passion's poverty.
