New Prompt and New Featured Poem tomorrow!

The winner of our Independence Day contest is Karla! All of the entrants wrote wonderfully different interpretations of Independence, however Karla's poem touched some very deep places and really stood out. All participants should now have a new badge underneath their avatar.

Look for our next Contest soon.

Happy Summer everyone! Here's a new Poetry Prompt for your perusal:

Poetry Prompt #92: Houseware Nightmare
This week, a tactile experience to promote your poetry: go into your Kitchen. Find 5 objects that you can touch. Use these items as 5 words to help you write a horror poem where the lights go out and your Kitchen objects conspire against you! Poem must be at least 12 lines long, in rhyming stanzas. Be original and creative, and most of all have fun!

Congratulations to Jahaliel, whose poem

It's been quite a while, but we've got a new poetry prompt for your attention at last! Sadly, due to that lack of member recommendations, we have no Featured piece of poetry for you this time. Remember, it's up to you to send us those recommendations if we're to continue with Feature Poems!

Please note a change in our Prompt schedule. We will intersperse Brain Box prompts with other Poetry Prompts as our current low level of staffing allows. If you'd like to help out, we're looking for moderators! Just PM Jamie to apply.

Without further adieu, your new Poetry Prompt:...

*advisory thread*
Hi everyone,

We're getting rid of our Portal Page and changing the layout a bit to include everything on one main page. I hope you like the changes. It should make the site a bit easier to navigate.

There are still a few tweaks to be made to the appearance of the new slide feature above, but we think it will help visibility of different parts of the site.

You're welcome to reply with any thoughts, concerns, complaints, or suggestions by replying to this thread. Or you can PM me if you'd rather do that.

But never fear, tonight we bring you a new Poetry Prompt, and Wednesday we'll have a new set of Brain Box words and another Weekly Featured Poem as well. Then we hope to be back on track for a great year of your talented poetry! Shake Your Groove Th

Happy 2012, Poet Share!

Last month was an absolute mess for me personally, and both Harklight and I were pulled away from the site unexpectedly for personal matters. Fear not, we've not abandoned Poet Share! New prompts will begin next week once things have settled down a bit.

In the meantime, please send in your nominations for Featured Poems, and try your hand at one of the Writing Prompts.

May 2012 be a good year for all of us.

A little late this week, here's your Weekly Prompt:

Weekly Prompt #85: Ends Dec 21, 2011
Season's Greetings

With the Holiday Season upon us, we thought it would be fun to try your hand at writing a Greeting-Card poem. Write a rhyming poem that embraces the season (entirely up to your own interpretation) that might be appropriate for a card from Hallmark or the like. You can be humorous, religious, reverent, thankful, grumpy--whatever you like. Have fun!

Update, Notice of Board Consolidation
Happy Wednesday!

This week's Weekly Featured Poem is Mind and Heart by KingSingh!

You may have noticed that the Brain Box is no longer in a separate board. We've incorporated our Brain Box Prompt into the Weekly Prompt rotation and combined both boards into one. We hope you find this change to be for the better. Smile
