Okay the rules are simple....just "design" a poem i the "shape" of something recognizable and yes you may use some cut and paste graphics to dress it up but the poem itself MUST be in a shape other than simple basic shape.  NO getting away with triangles, circles(mooons) or squares or the like.  Make a picture of some sort...and ITEM and as for the content of the poem...it may be about "ANY" subject matter at all, as long as the words go with the graphic you paint.  

an example would be the following:

also Marge Tindal's "MY Cup Runneth Over" http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum33/HTML/002981.html

and yes I will be doing another to meet my own challenge as well.  Good luck and I am so looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.  Also I have now put up my own answer to my challenge in open 10 to get an idea for you.  IN Full color as well. http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum42/HTML/000015.html

Mark,
challenge accepted but I gotta let you know this will be harder than getting to the bottom of my ironing basket.  


"It is the image in the mind that links us to lost treasures;
but it is the loss that shapes the image,
gathers the flowers weaves the garland."-

Thank you all for your AMAZING entries....I just loved each and everyone of them.  I was impressed by them all but not at all shocked of the talent you all possess.  Thanks once again and IF I missed someone's will you please let me know by email.  I would not want to miss any and I try hard not to.
