    Hello everyone!

    For some fun (and hilarious) poetry practice, I’ve decided to start a never-ending poem with you. Feel free to add a stanza or two whenever you feel like it.


    The Never-Ending Poem

    The poem began a little like this:

    A long time ago there were words on a page. 

    Many a poet attempted to join.

    There are so many words; who has time to gauge? 


    The poem was wordy (but so were the poets)

    and every new stanza made my headache stronger.

    A tree sheds its leaves when the weather gets colder

    but new seasons only make poets speak longer.


    I can’t wait to see what you all add! To get things started, I’m tagging @libby, @evelyn, @h-jones, since I’ve talked to you in other forms before and know you frequent in the poetry section. Anyone’s free to add as many stanzas as they like, however.

    Always remember you're unique...
    ...Just like everyone else


    Oh. My. Word. This is such a great idea. xDD I love it!! Thanks for initiating, this seems fun. 🙂

    And speaking of seasons, all over the world,
    New winds are bringing in sunshine and rain;
    the breath of fresh air that stirs artsy souls!
    and suddenly, poets are at it again.

    I love this idea!

    Many a day prances gaily by
    Feeding new thoughts and ideas galore
    To the mind of the poet who’s struggling to keep
    Her poem at only six stanzas – no more!

    @kb-writer This is such a great idea!! How fun! 🙂


    But how can a poet stick to so few,

    When in her head there are thoughts left and right?

    How would she write just one line or just two,

    When so many ideas spin round and take flight.

    *calls in reinforcements* (Because it is a marvelous idea, even if I cannot write poetry!)

    @evelyn @h-jones love what you guys have done so far!

    So she sets down her pen with a sigh and a frown
    And quietly stretches and wiggles her fingers,
    Deciding to walk in the dusk of the day
    While heaven’s dim sunlight yet longingly lingers.

    And as her appendages take her afar,
    Her soul becomes lost in a haven of dreams;
    The beauty that greets her brings peace to her heart
    With the thought that her life’s not as hard as it seems.
