I suggested that one of our fellow poets (not a fellow, I'm sure) was seemingly able to "polish water".

A squirrel fellow, of a certain poetic nature, motioned that the phrase be used in a challenge.

This motion was seconded by DeaDi Amore (said water polisher).

So...Here it is. Use the phrase "polish water" in a poem longer than 5 words and not to exceed 50,000 words.

Done, and in Open. (too light for Dark ) It's called "I wanna walk the moon with you" -- meaning Lori, sorry wranx.

Great challenge!

If nothing else, you kept wranx's challenge alive. I think more people would've done it if the title didn't include the word dark in it, wranx. Many people are afraid of the Dark forum ... I've even read some saying they would get rid of it if it was in their power. :[

Good work!
Worthy work!
STELLAR WORK!!
It's just not HAPPY work!

I think I shall go write something about how my pony flew to the end of some sparkly rainbow thing and found butterfly puppies playing angel tag with magic hummingbirds.

Oh! I just did...Damn!

Nah, some people won't give it a chance, but that's all right. I can appreciate that Dark isn't to everyone's liking.

And I like hummingbird tag. (or whatever it is)
