Neopoem Of The Week Contest Winner!

This week the Neopoem Group has selected the poem Off Ramps by Scribbler. Congratulations to Scribbler on such a fine write. Thanks to the group for selecting this week's winner.

Off Ramps

It's been so long I can't recall
anything but this highway
which I've shared with one and all
as time and life both slip away.

Just another traveler amongst the crowd.
kinfolk, friends and strangers too.
Rushing, passing, boisterous, loud
all in a hurry to get to.....

in midst of vicissitudes
you say
let bygones be bygones

how can this be
when one bygone has eloped
bagging along
his inadequacies
beyond boarders unknown
and the other lounged into a hole?

Neopoet Challenge # 14 Contest Winner

This month our challenge series turns into a contest. Scribbler has won this month's contest with his poem, CONNECTION LOST (voice mail from the grave) Congratulations To Scribbler on such a fine poem. This month also has an honorable mention to Anna Severchuk

CONNECTION LOST (voice mail from the grave)
Slowly walking along three and twenty creek
downstream from the old rice fields
feeling all my old bones creak
but I ignore their appeals.

Ahead are some old Indian mounds
where warriors lay at their last rest.
They recline there making no sounds
hearts long silent in their chests

The mixture produced visuals;
flashes of what used to be
how their lives were to them most usual.
I felt they were inside of me.

April 2022 Contest Winner!

Congratulations to Anna Severchuk for winning The April 2022 monthly contest. Her poem,
We need to believe (following Robert Frost) was chosen by an anonymous judge.

We need to believe (following Robert Frost)

we need to believe

we need to be brave
till we lay in the grave;
we need to be strong
when everything's wrong;
we need to believe
so we can live
as we are the kings
of our lives and dreams!
hey, can you hear?
the freedom is near!
so make your choice,
don't hide your voice!
come on, go ahead
but don't lose your head!
