Thursday poetry competition, the results!

Last week we had a poetry competition and the topic was Galaxies. The contestants had to write a poem, their wished length and include something related to the topic.

We had a great blogger, you may know her, SaaniaSparkle judge! Her poetry is out of this world and kindly took the offer to become our judge! Do check out her blog and give her a follow!

So it was a tough competition, but finally, Saania has chosen a winner.


Joy from Yellow Brick Ave!

This AMAAAZINNGG writer who impresses us with her captivating words and beautifully penned verses has been a brilliant follower of Penable for a while. It is a great honour to announce her as the winner and here is what she wrote….

Galaxies, Or Regarding Poor Prufrock

In a lush field upon our backs we lie
with our palms spread out flat against the sky,
like a perfect frame for the gleaming stars.

Around us we hear the swift-moving cars,
racing to their destinations, but ours
is simply here under the summer heat,

For we don’t want to roam the busy streets,
we desire to just wait in peace and meet
constellations, greeting them one by one.

Soon, though, even without illumination from the sun,
our gentle quietude becomes undone,
reminded of life’s chaos by the overwhelming vastness of space.

A disheartening question now we face:
Among the cosmos, what is our place?
It ravages, rages, consumes our brains

until it is the only thought that remains.
Though to the tranquil darkness, it does not pertain,
so we wonder if it needs answered at all.

The beaming starlight once more does call,
and though we may feel stuck and small,
held in by the pointillated dark sheet above,

we notice the heavens surround us with love.
That inquiry flies off like a dove
as we feel safe beneath the galaxies.

We will return to questions of mortality,
morality, reality, and unreality,
but for now, we focus on the view. How pretty!

For this moment,
we ignore memories of the city,
the hustle and bustle, the anxiety,
that simultaneous crowded, lonely curse.

Those thoughts are for another poet’s verse–
We do not dare disturb the universe….

By Joy ❤️
