Okay everyone, once again, I'm not judging, instead are going to be two other judges:
They'll tell you the more info later to come. Please check back in!

Kjersti but you can call me Captain TOPIC: Perseverance

I don't care if you actually use the word in the poem or not, but it must reflect the topic, positively or negatively. Be forewarned, if I do not think it is on topic, you will have no chance of winning *evil smile*

Cryptid and I, of course, are judging. The Tentative deadline is January 7th. This may be subject to change, depending.

Feel free to use any form of poetry; imagism, haiku, sonnet, whatever, but again, if you say, for example, that your poem is a haiku and your first line has six syllables, I WILL DOCK POINTS!!!

Oh yeah, and have fun. ^^

uh, remind me what perseverance means again? ^^;

Kjersti but you can call me Captain Haha, sure.

perseverance (N): steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., esp. in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.

Basically, continuing on at something until you reach your goal, or die trying.

Kjersti but you can call me Captain Like I said, you can sing the glories of perseverance or you can say that it sucks. I don't care, so long as it's on topic.

What does Tentative mean?

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Cryptid, you have a frickin' dictionary on your finder! It means unsure.

Katie wow people. never new the world had forgotten so much. thou and thine and thee i understands but woe unto you if you dont know this. *faints*

Leiko Xantara (arrogant_protector) Um, I thought haiku was only on nature.

Kjersti but you can call me Captain No. Haikus can be about anything but they are meant to capture a moment in time, following a very specific format, that is, 5 syllables first line, seven the next, and five syllables in the last line, as follows:

When you do not look (five)
In the night, I am cutting (seven)
Look! Do you see me? (five)

Thats mine sorry if its a little late!

Kjersti but you can call me Captain No it's cool, we're taking entries until the 7th.

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay... I worked hard to be... happy. If you know me at all, or my writing is deppression.


Kjersti but you can call me Captain haha, Bells. I never said anything about it having to be happy. ^.^ Well done, though.

I guess it could be...

And that's probably the happiest poem I've ever read by you, Bells ^^

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

thanks, even though I had to LIE throughout the whole thing

Kjersti but you can call me Captain Bells...I hate to threaten...but the more you complain about it...the less it makes me like the thing. *hint hint* No one said you had to write happy. You could have wrote a poem about how perseverance sucks. You could write something saying quitters persevere because they're always quitting. I DON'T FRIGGIN' CARE. But this let's disclaim how false this poetry is thing is kind of ticking me off.

Kjersti but you can call me Captain And on that note, feel free to post more than one entry.

message 26: by [deleted user] (new)
