March 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 March 31 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?

Running On The Sky


running on the sky
kicking the moon

her name rhymed
with venus                                         
or was it jenny

can anyone hear me

we made love
in her father's kitchen
walls of knotty pine

dreamed of our own
in the woods
with an overture
of cicadas outside

you didn't say good-bye
just cried a landslide
filling a hollow bed

throwing stones at clouds
my heart hanging
a broken trapeze

I agree

Nikaya

but

the poet has to  post
their own poem here
as desire and permission to
to let us entry their poem on their behalf

then a secret panel of hungry
cats choose 2 poems

There's still time
why don't you enter one of yours

Untitled

I know nothing of parachutes
but doubt one could save me

How to trust
strings and silk
packed by someone else


I felt it shelter to speak to you  ~Emily Dickinson

I will, Reg, promise.
I also found that sonnet I told you of... will post very soon. It's bad manners to post too many pieces at once, my friend ( I'm obsessed with this art and write very very often when I'm in the mood lol).
