"May those who love us, love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping."
(an old Celtic blessing)

I see the Free Form Poetry Contest instructs to write a free verse, and goes on to say there is no structure, meter, or rhyme. That is NOT free verse. Free verse requires to have some poetic devices, such as alliteration, internal rhyme, and so on. Look at the page that Michael Cahill wrote on the Fabulous Free Verse Club front page. Not just words on a page.

    nor84: it's a site contest, and while the title says free-form, the rules say free verse. In other words, no rhyme patterns. If you think the title should be changed or the rules are incorrect, you should p.m. Tom to fix it.

    Jannypan (Jan) : Yes, there is a difference in free verse and free form. They can't be lumped together. Yvonne (damomy)) is right about the excellent information on the home page of The Fabulous Free Verse Club. The instructions with the contest are confusing.

    Carlos' girl: Yes, I always thought free verse had by definition internal rhymes and poetic devices. It is a form of poetry I greatly admire and should not be diluted in the contests.

    giraffmang: It doesn't have to have those elements but most do. Any poetry website will demonstrate this including fanstorys preferred reference point Poetry Dances. Which is available from the drop down menu.
    February 25, 2022 at 4:17AM
    damommy: I've found that Poetry Dances is not always reliable on form.

Good moms let their kids lick the beaters. Great moms turn them off first.

Two doctors and an HMO manager die and line up together at the Pearly Gates. One doctor steps forward and tells St. Peter, "As a pediatric surgeon, I saved hundreds of children." St. Peter opens the gates and lets him in.

The next doctor says, "As a psychiatrist, I helped thousands of people live better lives." St. Peter nods in approval and lets him in.

The last man says, "I was an HMO manager. I helped hundreds of families get cost-effective health care."? St. Peter replies, "You may enter, but you'?re only approved for a three-day stay."

I was looking at myself in the mirror earlier today, and realized my figure has everything it had forty years ago. It's just three inches lower now.

For a trio of drug thieves, it was their lucky day. They broke into a home in Silver Springs, Florida, and discovered three jars of cocaine. They took it home and snorted the contents. That's when they discovered that the jars were in fact urns and that they were snorting the cremains of the victim's husband and two dogs.

    LateBloomer: I'm sure the thieves were in the gifted and talented class when they were in school. Thanks for the laugh. Bloomer

Don't laugh when you see my new profile photo. My granddaughter wanted me to post it.

It's my high school graduation picture. Yes, we had cameras way back then!

Do you know how long dinosaurs lived?

The same as short ones.

    Jannypan (Jan) : Their time was a long time ago, but it was short when considering the age of the universe.
