HAROOOO!! I get to post the first poem.
Justa, as another poet, I think you should give some serious consideration to submitting to a Publisher, can give you a number of links<I'd suggest going for e/literary
'zines rather than the contests>
WOW...TY, the Black Watch has a long and proud history and I can see how your Grand Da would opt for mustering out rather than going to another regiment. BTW, WAY cool avatar ;D
Whytewatcher, 'twas beautiful
The Harley's engine hacked a cough,
shuddered violent protest,
reigned in too suddenly
before the crash of bodies,
against plate and mail,
it grumbled at its idleness.
dark as starless skies,
over twilit streets.
Her gaze pierces
the citified veneer,
a spear's challenging blow
upon an adversary's shield.
Shaking loose ebony strands,
spilling, a damask cascade,
lover's fingers down narrow waist,
she rides against the status quo.
Full crimson lips peel back,
a wolf's snarl of feral rage,
for black clad trendiness
lusting over opaque sunglasses.
Her ride roared to life,
shattering microcosm's silence,
the shout of victorious armies;
gone like vestiges of dream.
