    Ok hun, I will tell you my opinion and add my suggestions underneath the stanzas:

    Bring me the sunset in sleeping cups
    let night gently pours, as light fills up
    spill it in, with the deepest tranquility
    as my astonished eyes sink in ecstasy

    gently pour, instead of pours, because night is singular

    I love the image of you being spellbound, I love the metaphor you used.

    Hold it like a fair diamond in the hand
    shining like gold, as dry summer sand
    sip me freedom, as I sip the soft power
    that lays within the magic of its color

    it's color, instead of its

    This stanza is magic too, I just love the image of soft sand, diamonds held in the hand etc. Good work here, Nana.

    Bring me the sunset in treasured cups
    let night shake, as morning brightens up
    touch my senses, for the heart to leap
    dress me yellow rays, let sorrow sleep

    No remarks here, exept, wow!!!!
    Dress me in yellow rays is such beautiful poetic language.

    as I listen to the ripples of it's orange fall
    drown me with beaming memories I recall.
    As for my lonely tired eyes, and thirsty lips
    bring me a cup lightened by sunset drips ..

    This is also perfect, wording, imagery..second stanza is pure magic.

    You did well on this, really well Nana...outstanding poetry and you won my heart with it, ha ha ha!

    A big ole hug,

    5-5 Ingrid

    Sun set - sun rise. How beautiful the scene that we have all gazed upon. It is a true picture of wealth, the richness of its tapestry, the brightness of its warming colours, shining bright, glowing like magical fires warming a world below that is servant to its warmth and its light.

    I enjoyed this poem very much. Imagine if you could harness this miraculous sun, its very essence in one cup. How precious would that cup would be? How carefully would you carry that cup? Surely not one single drop you would want to spill. What would be the consequences of such an act?? A sun that glowed less brightly, a warmth that had a chilled edge? Imagine that??

    Well done - I like this alot.

    I love love love this title, I was going to try it as well, but no spot left & I probably wouldn't have had time to write it anyways. I thought you did such an excellent job though, one of the best poems you've written to date.

    First, let me apologise for I thought I had left a comment when you first posted this but now I remember I was running out the door and planned to comment on my return, obviously I forgot!

    I imagine if I also had a cup like this I would guard it with my dear life and gaze upon in when life throws a lemon my way.

    Perfect visuals and amazing flow made this verse a pleasure to read.

    Congrats on you win, very well deserved.

    This was amazing, and I hope it won the contest you entered it in. I loved this a lot and I think the symbolism and descriptiveness fit perfectly... sometimes everything just works. ^_^
