My thanks to }X{Angel}X{ for presenting this challenge about this time last year.  I'm bringing this back for all of our new members to enjoy.

"I AM"

I am (two special characteristics you have)
I wonder (something you are actually curious about)
I hear (an imaginary sound)
I see (an imaginary sight)
I want (an actual desire)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I pretend (something you actually pretend to do)
I feel (a feeling about something imaginary)
I touch (an imaginary touch)
I worry (something that really bothers you)
I cry (something that makes you very sad)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I understand (something you know is true)
I say (something you believe in)
I dream (something you actually dream about)
I try (something you really make an effort about)
I hope (something you actually hope for)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I Am (Alastair's Ego)


I am the Semantic Picasso and Culinary Hound
I wonder if one hand clapping makes half a sound
I hear in silent forests the falling tree's ap
I see ragged chorus line angels on pinheads tap
I want to see my writing printed and bound
I am the Semantic Picasso and Culinary Hound

I pretend on the job that I'm earning bread
I feel Viagra-ed angels dancing on my head
I touch leathery wings of a horny angel
I worry I will never hear the falling tree's cl
I cry bitter tears for this abortive sound
I am the Semantic Picasso and Culinary Hound

I understand that angels often need to dance
I say, "Help me, I'm in a soft-shoe trance!"
I dream my works included in a child's education
I try to make the cl and ap estrange-ed, one
I hope something hears the falling tree hit ground
I am the Semantic Picasso and Culinary Hound


Alicat, the Persnikitty

Well Alicat. I don't know what the challenge
was that brought this great read about,
but I certainly enjoyed reading them.

And, I hope you get your dreams

See me where I stand I am

Well met challenge, I'll have to post mine tomorrow cause it already is over hear if you get my drift.  

 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

Alright persnikitty. I gave this a shot..lol.

I am an independant nurturer
I wonder why people can be so blind
I hear the trees whisper to the breeze
I see the sky kiss the earth
I want to see the world
I am an independant nurturer

I pretend to live in his arms
I feel growth in the journey
I touch the dreams of the world
I worry I am not enough
I cry for the loss of innocence
I am an independant nurturer

I understand that anything worth while is not easy
I say love is the answer
I dream of true freedom
I try to live up to my potential
I hope to see my words in print
I am an independant nurturer

I hope I met this challange well.

Okay, now I understand, the first post
was what we were suppose to do.  
And the second was Alicat's

Very Good Alicat. I enjoyed it.
and now Marilyn's yours too.

Now that I know I rules, I will
take mine out of here and post it
on its own, like most all the others
are doing  ---

I am also going to send this BTT
so that others can take this challenge.
        
Thanks Alicat, I like
these challenges!

Netswan, I would appreciate it.  This was an icebreaker that XAngel introduced last year, when there were only a few of us.  Now that there's more, well...don't know why we can find out more about the poets here.  

Send it to as many as you like...the more, the merrier.

Hi Alicat,

This was a wonderful idea, because even though I have been posting here for awial I sometimes feel alone because I do not know any one so this was a perfect thing to do, Thank you so much.

You seem to be a wonderfully fun and witty person, and I love the clapping hand line that is perfect.

Thanks again,  Cerenity

Guys....can't tell you how much I've enjoyed reading each and every response to this challenge.  I thank XAngel for first giving this one out a year come May.

Cerenity...*smiles* just had a feeling, what with all these members, I sometimes feel like I'm in a high-rise apartment complex, filled with faceless tenants...so I felt it was a good time to meet everyone.  


*blushes* Girl, you're gonna go and make my beard ignite if'n ya keep that up.....

Sorry I got it all wrong! I guess should have made more of an effort to look for the original thread. *running for cover*

Love and hugs,

This was a enjoyable challenge to do and to read all the responses.
Amazing that so many people can write about the same topic in so many different ways.
Thanks for suggesting it to us

My oldest son originally brought this template home as a school assignment and I fell in love with it! So neurotic am I about sharing things that I think worthwhile I typed the dratted thing in wordpad and copy and pasted it to here   . Thanks Ali for starting this again...I'll post last year's version and then see if I can muster up a new one for this year...
~X~

I am a dreamer and a poet
I wonder if there were ever really Unicorns
I hear a brook babbling in an ancient forest
I see a handsome prince on a majestic steed
I want to ride there too, among the trees
I am a dreamer and a poet

I pretend that I can feel the power of the horse underneath me
I feel the wind blowing through my hair
I touch the warmth of the horse's skin
I worry that this dream might really end
I cry upon waking and realizing it was just an elusive wisp of imagination
I am a dreamer and a poet

I understand that I must live in reality, not fantasy
I say that life is what we make of it
I dream of faraway places, and magical isles
I try to write beautiful sonnets about what's utmost upon my heart
I hope to write, someday, of my deepest desire
I am a dreamer and a poet
