Am I misunderstanding or is the poetry contest asking for poems with over 500 words?
Poetry contest entries must contain 500 words or more, and at least one legally used image.
Your misunderstanding - if the poem is less than 500 words you need to write an explanation. Even if its more than 500 its better to explain.
As burns says - add a pic
Or an introduction to the poem or as lobobrandon is saying information on the content of the poem in some manner
The entire hub needs to have 500 words. If you wrote an 8 word haiku, the rest of the hub needs to be at least 492 words! You can write about the type of poem, why you wrote what you did, etc. Good luck!

I just reread the rules for the contest, and it states that poems should be 500 words. Mine is 210. Is the introduction counted in the word count? Thanks.
