Poetry contest for RPXP

Join in!
Poetry contest for RPXP!


Let's have a little fun writing poetry together.

I'm thinking about the following format:

Every week, let's try on Saturday or Sunday, the winner of last week's contest posts a topic. (If they disappear on us, the runner up gets to pick one)
Then everyone has the rest of the week to write a poem about it. It can be in any format and doesn't have to rhyme (although it can of course if you want it to).
On Friday, everyone (including non-poets) can cast a vote on the entries (poets cannot vote for their own poem) and the winner will get some RPXP from the other participants. Please keep in mind that we're all in different time zones, so the winner won't be known until around Saturday midnight for those in the most advanced time zone.

To avoid confusion, please post the topic of the poem above it in bold letters.
Your title can be something different, but it might help if it somehow at least has some connection to the current topic.
You can make the poem as long as you want, but I would strongly suggest keeping it under 2 pages (A4) and please hide it under spoiler tags to preserve RPGX's bandwidth as much as possible.

I'll start us off with an easy topic: Sunset

Good luck everyone!

P.S.: I'm open to hearing comments on the format and if you think anything should be handled differently.
P.P.S.: Perhaps we can even bundle the winning entries and publish them in kindle format after a year? Might be interesting, right?
