SPU Poetry Contest #6: Announcement (& Winners of #5)



@run-the-bits here again with your results for the SPU Poetry Contest #5! You guys wrote some truly great poems this week. In fact, it was kinda hard choosing the winners (ಥ﹏ಥ) so I’m including one honourable mention. Be sure to check out our new poetry exclusive resteem bid-bot @cleansingpoetry which you can support and get a daily share of the bids by delegating SP to it here. For those unfamiliar with delegation, check out @angelveselinov ‘s intro on dlive and the introductory post here.

Mix ‘n Match

I actually liked this format and there were some great poems from it last time, so let’s try again.

What you have to do is pick one theme and an image below as your prompts. Then, write a poem inspired by the image while incorporating the theme into your poem. This week’s images are courtesy of me, as I hope to begin uploading both poetry and photography to Steemit more regularly soon.


  1. Heat
  2. Fear
  3. “Congratulations, {blank}”
