Now how about this?

An ongoing epic poem where the first letter of your added line has to start with the last letter of the previous line. This need not rhyme but let's all try make it a meaningful poem and stick to the theme of the previous line if we can.

So, let's start with Ron's inspirational lines from the site, seeing we are guests in his home.  

A home without a wall,
Our haven without ends,
A circle we all call
Our Family of Friends


A home without a wall,
Lifts barriers caging truth

"A home without a wall,
Lifts barriers caging truth"

Honesty, inspires poetry; here
We are safe to share vulnerabilities.

Sensitivities are shared,
hearts heal those breaking.

feast of thoughts here for the taking.

Giving,  each in our own way,
Comfort, somewhere, every day.

Comfort, somewhere, every day.

Heart songs are served on plates of blue,
Poems are posted, and spirits are fed.

Each and every word brings more
  Between these lines of distant shore.

"Each and every word brings more
  Between these lines of distant shore."

Easy, it is, to find passions safe-harbor,
Where sea-bird poets gather,seeking shelter.

But climb the mountains, seek all heights,
Sun, moon, stars, shine on poets so bright.

Thalia, Calliope, Erato, Melopmene.. shine celestial
Beams from the sky; lighting the minds of passion poets
Who have made their internet home a new Delphi.

Beams from the sky; lighting the minds of passion poets
Who have made their internet home a new Delphi.

Inviting one to explore the depths of the vast heavens of blue
sailing through word galaxies of thought and exploration

Near, you will find poets who have taken the baton, carrying it on..running the same track as

Bukowski and Frost, Sexton- Wordsworth-Shakespeare-Blake..who have retired from the race...

Honesty, inspires poetry here.

Sensitivities are shared, hearts heal those breaking.
Bared souls in tender offering feast on thoughts here for the taking ...

Giving, each in our own way, comforts, somewhere, every day.

Dessert is a light mound of memories,
Archived words piled high for a discriminating palate.

Each and every word brings more
Between these lines of distant shore.

Earmarked classical poetry once read, and kept in a heart
through metamorphosis becomes one's own.
Poems are but someone else's thoughts once read, scrambled and shakin,
An alphabet of feelings spilled making words that can shape any soul.

Ice, please feel free to add as many lines as you wish and are inspired to do so.  I myself am keeping this in a day journal as an example of the true heartfelt feelings that can pour from these pages in blue through people's words.  I am keeping it as you can see in word intact.

"Live, though you feel dead"
Is said to those in turmoil,
Locked in bitterness;

Here, sweet expounds are written,
To sugar discouragement.
