Sense no one is making any challenges, i guess ill make one myself.. Here it is:

1. Only 4 words per line,
2. Has to be at LEAST 8 lines.
3. Cant use letters: A, Z, D, and C.
4. Cant use words: Dead, The, Cant, and See.
5. Must not be funny, and must make sense.


I dont really think anyone is going to take this challenge, but i thought i'de give it a chance.

I wish to become a great poet some day, but it will only come in time. Til then, I shall write my poems, and wait.

That was a lot harder than I thought it should have been.  If I could have used an 'a' once in a while, I would have been fine.

I think I can, I think I can.

Pretty Kitty went hunting
For one little mouse.
Pretty Kitty brought prey
Into my new house.

Mouse got on bed.
I took my broom.
Hit pretty little kitty
For bringing mouse home.

(You didn't say it had to be beautiful and the kitty certainly doesn't think it's funny.  Do I pass?

Yeesh, that was hard! I never realized how often I used the letter D.

Iíve been something sweet
Iíll be something new
Iíll be something bitter
But something unlike you

Iíll be someone wise
Iíve been someoneís fool
Iíll be someone powerful
But never your tool

every time i try
to push myself more,
i must lose sight
of my true gifts.

empty lines before me-
ever to be full?
i hope so, for
my impetus burns brightly.

for now, i simmer
like some forgotten stewpot
hoping to be flowing
into vessels of kings.

Wow! You responders make it look so easy!!! Look how in just the one sentence above I used every tabu letter but one...it's easy to stay away from "z."

I might try the challenge, too.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

Slothful Morning

Waking up in dawn,
Yearning for tea scent,
I lay my head
Beside my infancy dolls.

Slothfully I breathe in
Then exhale in exhaustion-
Today I'm trapped sleepily
Within my own bed.

No way!  I can't even think hard enough not to use an 'a'...  Nice challenge but my lazy brain says absolutely nay.

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

Yes I know I'm slow but I wasn't around when this 1st posted
Gawd it's hard not using an A


Though I wish it
Tis not to be
Yet still I long
To be with thee

Must I just pine
For you every night
Or will it somehow
Turn out just right
