Nice to see lots of activity in here!

Just wanted to drop in and say that from here on, I am going to post comments on user walls when answering questions about the thread or the like. Just want to try and keep this area as clean as possible.

That said, I'm glad you all took some time to write a poem (or poems in some cases) and post it here. Hope that you folks who came here just for a chance to win an elephant stick around after! We always love to see new face in the Community.

Now keep on making those poems! ^_^

Haiku entry
Based on a personal event. R.I.P.

Brightened smiles meet
Euphoric friendship elates
Death, the cruel jokester..

General poetry entry will be submitted in the next few days, hopefully

Oh, how I loathe thee
For I cannot hold pen
I suck at haiku

Er...Sal..your middle line has only 6 syllables

@ Iswilliams90 - you cannot create your own themes haha you have to use the ones given
---

on a personal note this is the first Haiku I have ever written and I am not sure if I understood the structure correctly

Structure is fine..just keep in mind those punctuations

This is for the Haiku contest.

Falling to the ground
Shackles before so binding
I am free again

Give me mah elephant.

This poem is for the General Poetry contest

A bond has shattered
A bond has broke
Please come and hug me
I'm a handsome bloke

-This is for the Haiku contest

The day she left my mind bled
Pain in head and heart
I feel as though I have died

Thanks for listening

Haiku Contest Entry

A boy and his dog
The dog was taken away
Sadness struck the boy

This is for the Haiku Contest.

Stretching, reaching, gasp...
He watches the bridge burn down
and chains of steel snap.

So is the "elephant is a prize" going to be a one time thing, or will it happen again?
