Poetry Poll #1

Standard

In the June status report for my 2012 goals, I created a mini-goal of selecting three poems to submit to Wordrunner eChapbooks.  Not only does this publication have the unique characteristic of accepting previously published material (i.e. blog posts), but they are currently looking for poetry that relates to the word “found.”  Anything goes and they want unique interpretations.

The poetry I’ve posted for my series Sundays In London is rooted in the concept of what we find after a long journey.  Seeing as this is one of the more popular topics on my blog, I thought it would be fun to include my readers in deciding which three poems will be submitted.

Out of more than twenty five poems, I’ve narrowed the field down to sixteen that have the strongest relevance to the theme.  After a little math in my head it comes down to four polls of four poems. The results will help narrow it down to four poems, (it will be a total numbers game), which will then go up for a final vote in a fifth poll. I know it sounds a little tedious, but I’ll space it out over a week and a half so it doesn’t get boring around here!

Ready?  Here we go . . .

Round 1 includes the following poems:

Force of Nature

Peaceful Respite

The Guardians

Moments of Light

Hear the Call

Standard

The fearless thrive
craving the ride
The meek survive
biding their time

The edge is near
casting a dare
Fiercely tread
heart in hand
