Welcome welcome welcome !!!

It is boring to always see the same ol' journal entry, and so I am gonna spice things up a little bit here.. By the way, "I" am chiroptera.. And nopez, this is not an attempt to seek more pageviews..

I think all you people watching us must be wondering where the hell we went.. Truth be told, this community died again.. And it might do so another time in the future... Ermm, I'm not sure where the other admins went so I'm just doing this of my own accord.. other admins, if you wanna change this back to the ol' journal entry, you got the password, feel free..

Announcements
Always the same ol' annoucements.. not to worry.. this new journal entry will just shake things up a li'll..

I want each and everyone of you to choose between the following poetry forms and vote by leaving a comment on this journal, the poetic backbone you wish to write for the month of November..

The Limerick
The Quatrain

Oh.. and the best part of it, is that there is no write-up (i think) for the above two forms.. Go do your own research and tell me which one you want.. When the time comes, I will set a theme to whichever form was chosen.. That is IF I do get responses, and know that the people of the community is still alive..

I am not too sure about this message board now, but if you would like to check it out, here's the daniela.creative-flow.net/poet…

Intercession: From here on, everything's just copy-and-paste.. I have no comments on the following stuff.. :p

Write-Ups
If you want to do the official write-up on any forms with a specified rhyme scheme, meter, and/or repetition, please note poetic-forms.  If you just have information on the forms but don't want to write it up, send a note as well and we will pass the information on to whoever would like to do the write-up. The write ups will contain a brief history of the form, perhaps an example, and a full description of the rhyme scheme, meter, common themes, etc. All write ups shall be channeled through this page (i.e. the text should be sent in a note here) and from here it will be submitted as a deviation.

Form of the Month
October is the Ghazal month!
A Ghazal is a string of 5-15 couplets, with each couplet being able to stand alone as a complete thought and/or poem. At the end of the second line of every couplet is a 1-3 word long refrain. A rhyming scheme would look like that: AA, BA, CA, DA, and so on. Please see the write-up for more information.

definitely quatrain :D although, what kind? there are differnt forms... Though, I don't particularly care which, I tend to automatically revert to the traditional ballad quatrain while I am writing though, it is simplest.

By Quatrain, do you mean a poem consisting of a single Quatrain? Or a poem written in Quatrains?

My thanks in advance.

Benedictions.

ehhh...

i think that will depend on the theme that i'll be setting..

*top secret*

just choose between the two..

you will know in nov, whether it is single or a series of quatrains / limericks..

:p
