Thursday Poetry Competition – The Results!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing fantastic!

Last week, contestants had to write about: Something that makes you smile.

For this competition, the lovely Kim from Kim’s magic judged! Thank you so much Kim, and you did a spectacular job. πŸ‘

Kim chose two winners, she couldn’t choose between them as they were both so beautifully crafted. So the two winners are…

Zamadlomo Mkhabela and Rishika Jain!

πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Congratulations! You get the Penable Award as well as all the runner ups.

Here is the amazing piece that Zamadlomo wrote:

Mother’s love

Her love is so unconditional
Her love is so typical

I see strength in her painful smiles
Through Psalms 46 she endures trials

Her selflessness is so obvious
With her by my side I am victorious

She taught me life lessons
She taught me how to wear dresses

She also taught me how to wear heels
Together we prepared meals

She never said anything about make-up though
I grew up and went with the flow

I love you woman
You’re my superwoman

πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Now for Rishika’s lovely piece:

Cotton Clouds

I have been trapped in my home for ages
When one day, I decided to go down for cycling
I looked up at the sky and I saw you
I don’t know how but my gaze had fixed upon you
You looked like cotton floating in air
Oh you looked so surreal-
high up in the sky and just enough for my imagination to touch you and feel a bit of the cotton mush.
I saw you floating you looked as soft as cushion
I could feel how heavenly your body looked, as I admired you, even the sky blushed.

I felt I could reach you.
I stretched my hand, trying to grab you
Trying to feel a bit of the cotton-like-thing you are
But all my hands grabbed was empty air,
No matter how far I tried to stretch
I turned away disappointed
But your sight made me smile, yet again.
I kept gazing for as long as I could
I could see a bit of myself in you
I know that’s odd- but it’s also true
I could see formations engraved in you
And how they kept changing as I shifted my view


Great work you two, here are the runner ups:
