Last and certainly not least, I want to thank all of you, because this group would be nothing if you were not here, putting your hearts and souls into the poems that you write and submitting them here to this group for others to come and read. We are all very thankful that you do so. I am honored by every single person who joins, and you are all appreciated here. I wish I could express to you what every one of you and what every poem you trust in our hands means to me, yet all I can say is, I thank you. I will do my best to do more for you. And remember that if any one of you needs to talk, I am here for you. All you need to do click on the "Welcome Home" blog and add your comment, if you want to see if there are any other people who might answer with advice, or those who might share your problem, but if it is more personal please note me and never feel afraid, or worry that you will be bothering me. To help others, that is the main reason that I started this group. Whether it be through poetry or by having it be a safe space where anyone could feel free enough to talk to me or anyone else here.

:heart: Shanna, :iconthelunalily:


We at Poets-and Warriors wish you all the best.

Hi! I'm TheLunaLily, but you can call me Shanna. Writing is my life. It's my passion, and the reason that I'm here today. My Muse is my savior. I love reading and writing poetry, I'm self-taught and I wouldn't have it any other way. (Imperfections can show emotions better than calculated rhymes.)
I have a huge heart, big enough to fit all of you in it. I would love to get to know each and every one of you. Don't be shy! I'm always up for a chat. And if you ever need someone to talk to, note me. I will be there for you, to talk to or just to listen. Whatever you need. :heart:


Hey, guys! It’s Banshee here, but feel free to call me Kayla! I’m a fun loving art major who loves her some poetry. There is just something about the written word that has me crawling back for more. -Like at 3am when inspiration always seems to find me.- I don't mind though!! And I'm sure I'm not the only one that's been there! I’d like to get to know all of you! Notes make me smile, so hit me up with one some time and we’ll chat.

Greetings from prettyflour, otherwise known as Cindi! I am a women, wife and mother who is in love with words. I love reading and writing in all its forms. I suppose a have a special appreciation for poetry; I adore the freedom it affords and the imagery that can be created with just the right strings of words when put together. Just like Shanna, I am self taught and I think that we, who teach ourselves, have the benefit of using experience and emotion in our poetry, which translates easier and true. We live, we love, we write from the heart and soul. I'm proud to be part of this group and yearn to help inspire. If you need me, note me! I can be a great listener, a sounding board or be here for you if you are in need of an honest and unbiased opinion. :heart:


Hi guys! I'm DominaMoon otherwise known as Ava. I've absolutely loved both reading poetry and expressing myself through poetry since I can remember. I'm fascinated by both the written words, and the people behind them, so if you ever need to talk, or just have someone listen to you, I'll gladly be there for you like my lovely fellow admins :heart:

Hello everyone!

It gives me great pleasure to announce our next contest- Childhood and Butterflies.

We want you to write about your childhood and we want you to do it in a butterfly cinquain form.

What is a butterfly cinquain?  Check here for an explanation:  www.forwardpoetry.com/post/how…

I have a few in my gallery:

I'm in love with my best friendTop down
Spontaneous
Road trip to anywhere
Our hands were always intertwined
Laughter
Followed our every adventure
My favorite memory
Of my bestest
My man
 
Lights up
Every moment
That’s what he does for me
When he pours my glass is half full
Solace
Through the most violent of storms.
My light house in the dark
Always true north
My love
  big blueAdrift
in the big blue.
So alive in the surf,
so afraid to break the surface
mid day.
Staring up through the dappled sun,
tail swishing in wonder.
How i wish for 
first dark.
Full moon,
the Celtic Sea
is my big blue playground.
My bravado grows in the night.
The stars
are just bright enough to guide me.
The moon controls the tide,
the dawn sends me
adrift.


Let's get the pesky rules out of the way.
1. You must be a member to participate.
2. You are allowed 1 entry per person
3. The deadline for submissions is 12/23. This gives you plenty of time to come up with something awesome!  
4. Entries must be a new deviation- something written specifically for this contest.  
5. You MUST mention this contest in your artist comments and if you could fav this journal, that would be much appreciated!

Prizes!
We will pick one winner who will receive 100 points.
We will also have 2 honorable mentions that will get 25 points each.

All winners will be featured here, my personal journal, and a journal feature in :iconpoeticalcondition:  AND :icondeviantsgallery:

Prize donations are gladly accepted.  Also, I'd love to have another judge. Anyone interested?

Be creative!  Have fun with this! And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

A few more butterfly cinquains to get you inspired!

we found love in the mondegreensea fox
conflate by starfish
shimmer in soft waves
the tender turn; toss among these things
waving
squeezing between the mondegreen softly,
as with the lilt of ocean
seashell breaths crept
gentle.
*
by the
soft dawn of day
i slipped from your arms
once hiding myself in love's cocoon
as the
spring always seemed to cry for us
kiss us goodnight neath the stars
the swallow of wings
made bloom.
      Angelstar.                      Angels
               with quiet wings
        stand amongst us, kissing
writers with weary pens goodnight,
                     crying.
Their tears are diamonds made of fire
          that never burn away.
                 Everlasting,
                   they are.

GoodbyeMoonlight,
Playing softly
Across a fallen friend,
His face: illuminated, still
So still...
His moonlit features convey peace
Tranquil, despite my tears.
My soul is calmed...
Goodbye.
      Friends for EternityDo you
Realize that you
And I are going to
Be about eighty and typing
Away
On futuristic computers
Gabbing the nights away
Eternity
We share
So… I am looking for a type of poetry as well as themes for upcoming mini-contests.

Any ideas?  Here are some suggestions I've gotten so far on type of poetry.

alphabet poem
visual poetry
prosetry
limerick
blitz poems
acrostic
sonnet
lyrics
prosetry
couplets
butterfly cinquains
tanka
octelle

and we need themes too!  Feel to comment and share your ideas!
