Hi Billy, I'm posting my poem here. There seem to be two threads. I saw another by Michael. I'm fairly new here, so a bit lost.
Kenneth and Eira nominated it, I've already thanked them in the other thread.
My weekends tend to be complicated, as I have a chronic health problem that slows me down. So I'm posting it now in case it gets chosen.

Dusk

Let us walk, hand in hand,
when shadows
stretch across the land
like a black cat
waking from its lethargy.
Let us walk
along soothing paths
of Night
who lays her cool lips
on our scars.

Night saturated with silences.
Neither veil nor falsehood:
breezes waft fragrances
of white roses
on that predictable pinewood;
I foresee the fistful of earth,
I know the limit
that dusk intimates.

Let us walk: night is soon.
For a few instants,
still,
reality will be dissolved
under the tepid providence of the moon.

Gracy,
This is the format Michael requires every time a poem is submitted:

1/Your name

2/e-mail address

3/statement that the poem is your original

4/and unpublished work

5/and that you are not representing in the current IBPC

6/and the poem as you would like it forwarded to the finals.

^^ All of the above is the usual needed info as part of the process.

Then post with your poem into the Palaver thread Michael has already started for November.

it is essential you are not posting a poem in any other forum for this month or any other month in the IBPC

Best wishes
