Hey guys!  There are more things we can do in this forum.  
If you have a poem and your not sure what forum it belongs in post it here and we can all critique and decide..
You can post challenges yourself.  Or even post a challenge for a specific person only.
Arrange to meet here and post a joint poem that two of you have worked on together.
We could start an epic poem, and when it's finished I'll put it all together piece by piece so anyone can enjoy it in it's entirity.
How about for now we try an epic poem?  Set in the olde days?   I'd like feedback on this please??

Count me in too!!!

 Mystical being
which makes ink flow
Surround me in
your incandescent glow
Fill my brain with
thoughts and rhyme
As I try to capture
but a moment in time

Sure Joel, we'd love you to try it!!!  
What happens is, I pick the epic theme, and dhuron does a short poem say 16 - 20 lines.
Then the last line of his poem is the starting line for StarrGazer and we go down through the list.  It is like the ping pong played here previously.  But at the end I put it all together in one huge poem for all to read...
So your go is after Lily B.  I will start a new thread for the poem and we are all to put our poem in this thread only, so it will be easier to compile at the end.
Following is the order list  

1. dhuron
2. StarrGazer
3. Isis
4. KitKat
5. Wonderous
6. ESP
7. LilyB
8. Joel The Wolf

So 8 is enough to get things rolling.
I'll create a new thread to get this going  
Thanks all for participating..
