The Words Are The Same

Poetry Contest
Write a poem that includes the following words:

family - cry - spare - heart - orange - factor - bore - shatter - saint - hell

You can leave out one word. So write a poem that uses at least nine of the ten words above. A word can be plural (so "cry" can be "cries"). But not changed. So "cry" can be "cried" but not "sob".

This contest is for poems of all types and for poets of all skill levels. One entry per person. New entries only. Poetry only.

The winners will be selected by the Contest Committee. A winner will be announced approximately one to two weeks after the deadline passes. The decision is final.

The winner takes away a $100 cash prize. All writers will receive feedback for their submission.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Monday, December 13, 2010.
