You all know it has to be something special to drag my butt out of bed before 8 AM. Sometimes 9.
This morning I faded into consciousness to the soft, silky feel of Kate’s hair, her head resting comfortably between my naked breasts. How lovely. It gave me an idea, though I didn’t dare move for over an hour as I lay there feeling her breath on my skin.
Now that she’s up, I had to run straight to the computer. (OOO. She just brought me coffee. I lover her so!)
Ok, remember back in November when we had that poetry contest? (That contest is still open, BTW. We never got many entries, and none of us ever really voted for a winner.)
The rules were thus:
Write a poem. Here is your ending, adapted from the title of a Robert Heinlein story:
Oh how I long to long,
For the green, green hills of earth.
Have at it, and post your poems here.
We’ll post them all and have a vote, the winner will get a guest post on whatever subject the winner chooses.
Despite the fact that the first contest never really finished, we’re going to open a second one as well. Similar, but different. Both contests will close in a week.
Details below the fold.
Write a poem. Here is your beginning, taken from my lovely awakening this morning:
Resting comfortably between her naked breasts,
Feel free to substitute “betwixt” or “twixt” for “between”, or “my” for “her”.
First prize will again be a guest post here at UDoJ on any topic of your choosing.
And don’t forget the guest post is still up for grabs in our first poetry contest!
Let’s set a closing date for entries as March 7th, 11:59PM EST for both contests. Then we’ll take a week to vote, and declare a winner for each contest based on votes cast before March 15th, 11:59PM EST.
Have at it!
