Your poem could be about the things you can see all around you, the things you see in your imagination, or about visionaries – inventors, artists, musicians and famous people from the past. Your poems can be in any form, such as cinquains, clerihews or haiku. They can be rhyming or not rhyming, serious, funny or sad. As you send us your poems they will appear directly in The Poetry Zone competition section. We will announce the winners in November.
