Another month with some great poetry for the challenge has gone by. After giving it some thought the decision has been made. The runner up is January FolliesMoment of release,
City lights that glow…
Running in the breeze,
Feeling the wind.
Morning has come today
To enlighten and brighten me.
Oh, how, in a long time,
Have I felt this kind of elation.
With my friend at my side
And my self determined to go,
We run all throughout
The wet roads, the pouring rain.
So many shenanigans and silliness,
So much to enjoy, to jam around.
We live in good vibes,
Feeding each other with love.
Follies that we brew,
Memories that we bring…
So much room for elation
As we travel through the messes.
Follies we make on the street…
We run, we joke, we giggle.
Follies within our company…
Something we truly enjoy.
January is out in the cold blast,
But warmth lies in the bonds we share.
All the follies throughout the mess…
They drive us to happiness.
. But the winner of the challenge is That Time of YearNew beginnings meet new possibilities
in the joyous January. It is not a place for frowns
when knowing smile sees knowing smile
all around the town.
This is a month of firsts and news
like a “happy new year”
or that first kiss of midnight
of someone you hold dear.
This is no time for sorrow
and no one has patience for the sad
because this is a wonderful time
and not the month to feel bad
But maybe that's what we all need to learn
to be a little more soft and a touch more kind
Because that's what the new year is all about
Not to cross some finish line
. Congratulations.

For this month we will start the challenge Funny Februari in Free verse. I think the title explains it all. As Always there will be a special folder dedicated to this challenge.

Have fun writing

Challenge: Funny Februari in Free verse
Promoting Positivity: Vol 68Group Master List | @PromotingPositivity | Group Guidelines* * * *Hello everyone! Welcome to another Promoting Positivity. In this series, we will have three sections: @PromotingPositivity news, event advertisements, and peer support. Please take a look and see if there's anything you like. Feel free to comment with anything you want featured next week. With that out of the way, let's get started.@PromotingPositivity News5/5/21It has certainly been a long time since the last Promoting Positivity article was posted; almost a year, in fact. As such, I would like to make an announcement regarding this series since it is finally back from hiatus. As of now, this series will be solely about spreading news of positive events and those in need in the community. Unlike the other projects, this series will remain in my personal journal, with a link to it in the group. This is so that I can get the most visibility. More importantly, it will be a merging of my other series, Peer Support, that were postponed and the original series, and Promoting Positivity. All art will be kept in Positive Feature. This feature will take the place of Wednesday's Positive Comment. For now, the requests that used to be offered for individuals who participated will still be on hold. This is to ensure that I can focus on making this series the best it can be. I hope this updated series will be beneficial for everyone.

What is this group about?

PoetsOfDA - Banner by Me2Smart4U

Hi :D

I was going around DeviantArt, and noticed a lot of the poetry groups are inactive. So I thought I would create one. It is a simple group, but it will be great for showing off your poetry.

The folders are named after the category selection options you have when uploading your poetry. Please put everything in the right folders.

Maybe if we have more members, we can start challenges. The winners of these challenges will be displayed in the featured folder.

Have some respect for each other, and have fun.

And if any folder is full, or if you have any other problem with the group, please send a group note, or leave a comment. I will fix it as soon as possible.

There are very few active poetry groups. So why not make one?

Hey, I just uploaded a semi original song, with the complete lyrics. Don't know if that's acceptable or inappropriate for this group, but feel free to remove it if it doesn't fit :)

Is the poetry contest still ongoing, though? It's already past February and March (I just happened not to submit any entry for the February challenge as I didn't have any idea for such a theme of humour). Currently waiting for another challenge.
