Rows of dried corn stalks bend
with the wind that
thirsts for rain
that will only come when it has died
and the ears of corn cease to rattle.

And the thunder's distant laugh
will chase after the snakes  
heading for their mounds on higher ground,
their husks abandoned-
the flash floods may yet pass them by.

An amazing poet honestly speaking. There is a significant degree of depth in her works, especially because her poetry deals with the self - its conflict, its indifference, its infighting, its struggles, its indifference... its a wonderful series of poems, and each one has something new to offer.
- My personal favourite of her works, still.

Devious Journal EntryOh... Hey everyone!!! :wave:
Its us: =shehrozeameen, :iconpauper-circumstance: and ~UnThai !
So, what's up with today's journal... well, its going to be...
OUR FIRST PROMPT!! :nuu:
So what's going to be our first prompt...
You guessed it... Death.
Today's prompt was a collective idea of this administration. So, we asked ourselves, how do we define it?
Here's what came about:
:iconpauper-circumstance:
Death is the parting of the soul from the body. That is my literary meaning of death. It is when we, as humans, pass onto another world. Or when we stop breathing.
Death in a figurative sense, has many different meanings. There can be emotional death, where a person experiences something and cannot come back from it, essentially "dying" from his former self.
There is actual death where a person just dies. ;)
Mental death is when a person goes crazy, dying from his sane self.
A person is also dead if he does not really "live" life. If he goes day by day wishing he were dead. In m

Fourth Annual Poetry Screams Prompt Contest

WINNERS
:pumpkin:    
This was the fourth year I've run this contest and this was the hardest to judge thus far!  The overwhelming amount of
amazing entries to this  contest made every decision almost impossible to make.  Never before have I had such
incredible difficulty narrowing down the entries to three winners.  Following in step with last year, because there were
so many amazing entries, I am including a few honorable mentions along with the winners.

I want to thank all of you for your amazing work, for your efforts, for
creating such amazing pieces of poetry.  Not everyone can win, and
believe me I wish you all could.  Whether you won or not you should be
incredibly proud of your work.  These pieces have been truly wonderful
and by simply creating something for this contest you've given me such a

Introduction:  The time has come when the shadows begin to grasp more of the world
within their darkness.  Nature surrenders herself to the first hints of Winter's bitter embrace and
the world begins to change.  The earth rattles as dead leaves rain from the sky and the harvest
gives way to the wicked pursuits of the rising dead.  For a single night the living and the dead
share the same world and there is no certainty of a dawn on the horizon.

You wrote in 10 lines what I've written in 1500 words in a manuscript of mine - which is only known to my eyes. Honestly... I'm in awe.

Its a beautiful poem. It honestly does justice to the title and I respect that. Its subtle (the use of allegories and the way the second stanza simply has this... evocative freedom portrayed in stark contrast with death in the previous stanza is just... amazing).

All in all, I'm genuinely in awe of your poetic presentation. You've honestly done an amazing job. :clap: bravo!

This is great - really dark and spooky in the personification of thunder, and I love your use of the word 'rattle'. It brings up that haunting idea of a death rattle coupled with the vivid image of the dry corn stalks rattling together. Well done!
