Due to unpressidented success of the previous challenge I have decided to go again, with an easy topic for all you nature lovers. It could be the seasons that inspire you or the ultraviolet flash of a Kingfisher that becomes your muse and much much more so click open your pens and be at one with nature, either way Remember to post for the Monday slot you can choose any format and as many words as you like.

My only rule is that every poet that submits a piece gives feedback to all the other submissions, even if you just say one thing you liked about the other poems. NB * Feedback is the part of the site that helps us recognise when we have written something great and something that helps us grow as poets. Learn how to give it and take it , it's important.

@ belcanto, That sounds good, I'm not really bothered by time scales. But now this one is up, we can see it through, then next week Monday 25th  you could post one for submitting on Monday the 9th Oct, if thats ok ?

Its also not compulsary to submit a poem everytime a challenge is set, we all understand time pressures and that life in general gets in the way sometimes. I look forward to reading your challenge. Keith

I will try. 

it would be helpful for feedback if somebody posted the links of all submissions that participated in a challenge.

Nic, if we put (Poetry Challenge) alongside the title the relevant submissions will stand out.

Some people like viewing the forums first, I know I am one of these people, and I know I would appreciate greatly if the person that set the challenge gathered all the links, in fact it would be the first page I would check, the brand new reply to the challenge topic by the original poster containing all the links! I would click on all of them, dozens of new tabs would appear. 🙂

Oh dear me, what is going on ? I don't understand all the politics surely it enough to post a poem or prose, give some feedback and get some feedback. I don't understand how the site can have so many readers and so few comments from members. Sure we will keep on keeping on, but come on guys chin up and choose uka.

oh yes indeed it seems Belcanto really left! I was in a big hurry and just apologized for not having finished a poem to post and hadn't seen her reply. 

Savvi I will post a poem for your challenge. I think it is ready.
