CVL Virtual Poetry Contest 2017

Calling all poets!  Using Twitter, the Community Virtual Library is sponsoring a Virtual Poetry Garden.  Winning poems will be embedded in a virtual garden at CVL and published on our website.

We will use Twitter... so we ask for short poems in any form (haiku, free verse...).


Theme:  Cycles of Life
Let the process and cycle of life, both physical and virtual, inspire you.  Visit CVL to view inspirational images and words at the Virtual Poetry Garden (SLurl here).
All winning poems and all names of all poets who enter will be published on our website.

Poems must be 144 characters or less.  You may post on your own Twitter account or drop in the box at the Community Virtual Library (for those who may not use Twitter themselves) and we will tweet them.  The winning poems will be those with the most retweets!
The tweet must include the following:  @CVL_inSL  #CVLvirtualpoem (Our CVL Twitter handle and the contest hashtag).  You can write a haiku or any form of poetry that fits in your tweet.

Poems must be submitted by April 15, 2017 midnight SLT
