Poetry Competition: June 2014

The theme for this month’s poetry competition is:

Celestial Bodies

“I’ve tried the new moon tilted in the air
Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster
As you might try a jewel in your hair.
I’ve tried it fine with little breadth of luster,
Alone, or in one ornament combining
With one first-water start almost shining.”

The Freedom of the Moon by Robert Frost

Do I hear a collective groan?

Fear not! Anything vaguely related to the theme will be welcome, from Red Dwarfs to the Moon in June, and multitudinous things in between.

Let your imaginations expand into the Universe. This should be easy for those Cherished Colleagues with brains as big as planets (thank you, Marvin and Douglas Adams).

Entries by midnight on 30 June.
