Okay....here's one, perhaps too easy, but think I'll love the poetry that results from it.
Use the line:

In the moonlight, shadows dancing

in a poem...okay...let's see them

Okay, Ruth, I just posted mine in Open# 5. This was a hard one for me. I never wrote anything in this meter before! I hope you like it!

So you guys are offering a challenge? Yes yes... All I want to know is if I can join in this challenge, because I really need to test my skills if I want to be a really good writter...

I just want to thank everyone for the overwhelming response to this challange. Never did I think so many would take me up on it or that I would be treated to such a fine assortment of poetry. Thanks everyone. The challange was outstandingly met  

 I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

Alright, I posted up my poem so I can at least TRY to face up to a challenge. Its in Open Poetry #5, just as requested, and it is titled "Untitled". Basically this is my first time writing what I feel in heavy rhyming formation, so its basically in a metaphoric sense if you think about it.

Ruth-
I just wanted to say thank you for
eliciting some of the most uniquely
poems out of this one thought.
Personally, the very lines began to pull
thoughts from my head.
I wrote and wrote and wrote.

You opened a door that cascaded with
ideas I didn't know I had stored.

WONDERFUL CHALLENGE ...
I enjoyed what it produced.
Thank you, dear one.
Love ~*Marge*~
