Made it through round one
of the tournament!
My second entry into the poetry tournament...
This is my entry
for the first round
's Scratch That Poetry Tournament
. As the rules stated, the participants could write about anything
to do with Romance
overly depressing subject matter
This piece was greatly inspired by the mythological figures, Atlas
& Mother Earth
In the tournament we were given a pretty loose theme to base our pieces on: Romance
. For some reason, I have no idea why
, that translated into a love story between the man that supports Earth and the woman who nurtures it. After researching into the birth of Atlas and how he was punished during the wars to hold up the skies (and in some mythologies, the Earth)
- I was inspired.
Please let me know what you think. I'd love some feedback on this.
