NATURE-themed quarterly contest.

"To me a lush carpet of pine needles
or spongy grass is more welcome
than the most luxurios Persian rug."
- Helen Keller



Though inspiration as a poet truly comes from within, nature can act as a means to enhance imagination and devices used in our poetry. I believe that nature possesses a unique and grandest beauty that only poets can perfectly describe. And I want you dear poets to bring forth your NATURE POETRY to prove this.

Verdant Poetry Contest is especially created to bring out the best nature poetry you guys could possibly create. And of course, delightful prizes await.
