Some excitement from Forumotion!
You may have noticed by now that there is a toolbar at the top of your screen. This is an option recently instituted by Forumotion that I'm, for lack of a better word, psyched about!

Now you can receive all sorts of notifications (email, friend requests, etc) through the "Notifications" section of the toolbar. You have one-click sharing on Twitter, FB, & Google+, and a fully functioning search function.

To top this off, Forumotion has finally updated the mobile version of the site. Now you can do more than just read on your mobile device--you can post a new topic,...

A Moment of Remembrance
You may or may not have heard already that today is the 50th anniversay of the death of Robert Frost. Frost is one of my favorite poets (naturally, I'm a Vermonter!) and his easy rhyme always seems to soothe me. So as a slight, small tribute to a wonderful poet, we're posting perhaps his most famous poem here, and opening up this thread for anyone to discuss his writing or to post copies of any of his poems that you enjoy. And may you all have miles and miles to go before you sleep.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Sorry for the delay with January's new prompts. I've been sick with the flu and Daniel is away on personal business but I will get it done either tomorrow or Sunday. Thank you for your patience.

Happy December everyone!

As the Holiday Season nears, and as I find myself embedded in shopping and cooking (and hoping for some good birthday presents!), the hard reality has struck that we simply do not have the staff to accommodate weekly, or even bi-weekly, prompts. Therefore, at least for the time being, we will be switching to a monthly prompt format.

Instead of one prompt every two weeks, we will now post two prompts--a text prompt as well as a Brain Box--every month to get you inspired. This month, of course, our own inspiration was a bit seasonal.

Have you ever wondered why the chicken crossed the road? Was something chasing him or was he trying to find his way home? perhaps he was "egged" on by someone.. this is your chance to answer that age old question in a poem. Have fun and enjoy this weeks prompt. Don't miss our new featured poem, On Fairy Wingsby Ladywildalice

Apologies to everyone for the late prompt. Had some family emergencies and spent much of the last week at the hospital. I will post a new prompt and featured poem sometime tomorrow. In the meantime, you can always take a gander at our annual Poet Scare Contest in the Special Contests board! A second Poet Scare contest will follow soon, both ending this month so you may want to get started! Smile

Great News! A time capsule was just dug up that was in the ground for over 100 years.. Inside they found photographs, old books and a poem. This prompt wants you to write that 100 year old poem. Was it written for the future or was it about the past? it is your choice. As an extra challenge, you must mention the words "liver" and "bounce" in your poem. Also don't miss our new featured poem, "Sonnet 31, written by "The LoneSonneteer".
