After a bit of discussion, theme may change to Colors. There's still plenty of time left. Several users have submitted entries entries, but if no one has reason to disagree, then the theme will change.

I'll say stick with it. An odd theme makes participants be creative. As you saw last round, most of the entries were similar because the theme was vibrant and active. When it's something commonplace, it's more of a challenge.

Knight

Heart of Darkness?

Don't know that. Could I have made a double reference?... Anyway, sorry, no cookie for you :(

Will I receive my cookie from the Jagafess?

Be sure to take the Doctor with you, just in case.

I personally think the theme should not be changed and writers should prove themselves to be creative.

I challenge you! (yes you)

This is Where we Meet

Separating us, a rug,
An Afghan if I ever saw one.
Laying thing, lying there,
I'm not sure which, and,
To be frankly honest, to be
Frankly clear, frankly my dear,
I do not, so much, if it were,
Give a care. Just look at the
Afghan, laying, lying there.

There are a dozen dozen,
Dozen dozen, hundred spaces
Separating us, between you,
The rug (the Afghan) and I.
And for what? What? What?
Deaf men tell no tales. There's
The rug and nothing more.
The rug and the space. Between
Us, and that's all.

This is where we meet,
We meet here every day,
Every hour and minute,
I do not focus on you,
But the rug, between our feet.
Between our lives, on the floor
Fifty feet from the door.
Laying, lying on the floor. And
All that I see, that is left,
That is the tangible part,
Of whatever this is (was)
Is an Afghan.

An Afghan rug is laying,
(Lying) between us, on the
Floor. Fifty feet from the door.

Haiku
Subject: Floors
It's used to define
Levels of society
But it never works
I tried to put some depth into it but it is a weird subject so I did about the floors of a society pyramid.
