February 2012 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 February 29 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?

condensation turns into frost
the blurred world
dense and cold
icy mists wisp around a cardinal
he scratches through empty hulls
searching for a fueling morsel
nothing's there

I haven't stepped outside
in four months
to fill his feeder
to fill my larder
to fill the senses

scraping my fingernail
through the hoar on the pane
frozen crystals gather like a white feather
I touch it to my tongue

I turn from the window
I'm out of scotch.
