    I hope that there are more entries. It's not a very fulfilling feeling knowing that you have only won a contest because you were the only one who entered.

    can you enter more than once? because ive got another great poem floating around in my head!

    Tough and prolific. That describes you to a tee. I know that since chiefblackhammer took charge people have been allowed to submit as many as they want. You did that before when the contest was reinstated.

    I dont think i have ever seen a poem written by Chief.

    I have a suggestion for the suggestion box!

    Can the winner, of this contest for may, pick the theme for the next contest? I mean, they pick a theme, include a definition of the theme, and if they want it a team effort or simply a solo entry.

    Okay, that would be raising the stakes. This is shaping up to be the most interesting yet and there is only one entry so far.

    We don't need you showcasing your higher level thinking skills devil woman. Just Kidding.

    By the way starfire1036 Chiefblackhammer has put several poems up. The ones I like the best are "Autumn" and "Bottled Ship." Now Chief has done his share of bragging, but without getting into if work matches the hype let me say he is a hell of a writer regardless. Here is my favorite piece of his:

    Gourds and pumpkins grow
    In mist of lighten bug’s glow

    The sun fades from view
    And the air begins to cool

    A gentle breezes blows
    As winter’s seeds are sowed

    All the while painting a glorious sight
    The dawning of orange and reds so bright

    The beauty of all the shades
    Slowly begins to fade

    Like a boat that sails away
    The mystery of an autumn’s day.

    1) Multiple entries are fine, you just can't vote for yourself on either entry. You may still only submit 1 vote.

    2) Yes the winner can pick the theme, I have no issues with that.

    3) I could enter, it has been a while since I wrote so I may just do that. However I promise nothing, lol.

    4) I claim knowledge of poetry, not ability. Meaning I never said I was a good poet or even a mediocre one I have only ever claimed to have spent a lot of time studying it.

    Most of my submitted works are in this thread: Hammer's Poetry Corner Which I might add there has always been a link to in my sig area.

    People who are good rarely have to claim to be so, but in my opinion and I am sure the opinion of others you are quite good. Who knows maybe a certain sombody like ZEV (hint, hint) can take the lead next time and let you have some fun.

    When you say one vote does that mean that's the limit? because you had posted this earlier "you read them and vote for as many as you would like...as long as you have a valid ( val·id adj. 1. Well grounded; just.) reason to go with your vote." Is the one vote the minimum or the maximum? just wondering.
