Entry Category: The Season's POV
Entry Title: Ballet of the Seasons
Entry:

The spotlight is passed to Summer
Spring rests her weary limbs
watching her sister
nurture the budding growths
she sowed in her dance

Whether arid heat
or furious storm
the long days
of Summer's dance
are never dull
Inviting the world to share
her frenetic energy

But even dear Summer
has need of rest.
With utmost grace
Autumn accepts centre-stage

Reaching out
the embrace of change
encouraging reflection
without forgetting surprises

Autumn shares fire-flowers
with revelling Summer
with which to paint the night
as shadows come to play

Though it is not her time
to twirl in abundant blooms
and weave her vast bouquet
how can Spring resist
darting by to
coax fresh flowers
during the others' parts

Winter stands ready
to wipe the slate clean
and prepare the floor
for the dance to begin again

Abigail gently took the poem from the mirror and read down the list, nodding. "Everything here checks out," she said softly. "Don't forget your security badge, and good luck!"

Judge Windriuffles sipped her cup of chai as the next Poet stepped up, or were they dragged? Oh dear, she understood the fear of sharing poetry with others. Their contest here was a good place though - everyone understood that fear.

She took the entry with a welcoming smile and checked it over. "Looks good, thank you for entering! We'll get this logged in and you can get your Security Badge over there."

Entry Category: If Windsinger...
Entry Title: Gone again

Entry:
All the things I could do
The list goes on without end
The fun crazy adventures I'd have
If Windsinger were my friend

No longer would boredom plague me so
If windsinger spent time with me
The tales, the stories, the poems he'd tell
To make me laugh with glee

But if I befriended this wandering god
How much he would come and go?
The wandering winds call him on
Between lands of desert and snow

Our time would end, it would not last
For he is adventure-bound
Across Sornieth he would fly
Leaving me on the ground

He would promise me, with sincerity
He'd make a quick return
Tales he'd bring from far off lands
He'd leave with a promise of return

Sadly to watch him fade away
Gliding through the air
Left in silence, alone once more
A heart filled only with despair

Would I wait for him to come
Gliding towards me once more
Or turn my back, and walk away
From this quiet lonely shore?

I would not stay, but turn away
With one last lonely glance
For glimmering scales, green and bright
Or a whiff of wind, by chance

It's over at last, a shortened time
I would watch it come to an end
How long would I wait, for his return
If Windsinger were my friend?

Goodbye

Judge Abigail moved over to one of the table legs, wrapping herself around it, and tapping her tail against the table to keep her occupied. Taking the poem from the spiral, she nodded as she made sure it achieved all of the requirements. "You're free to go! Don't forget your security badge."
