In Honor of April's Poetry Month

Updated on March 31, 2014

Lets String one along

In honor of April Poetry Month Lets string one big long poem that will go from now until April 30th... Lets continue where the next poem left off.

A little game plan. ( or rules )


You must follow the theme of the the poem.. and some writers can darken it gradually or make it lighter gradually.. but there can be no big difference. You can continue adding pieces to the poem even if you already have a link to the poem chain. However, you cannot follow your own link.


Each poem must be 10 lines or less.. and please in a second text box explain your poem and who you are and what changes you made to the poem... Dark photos are so welcomed.. your own shots if possible and explain why you used those shots.. Lets have fun... Frank


the poem title: Spirits Sat as Mourners

Frank Atanacio ( Starting Link )

He knew

As death grew,

The lights were dimmer,

As the darkness began to shimmer,

Eyes would glow

As the candles in back

Burnt low

And spirits sat as mourners

Massed together all in a row…

Trail links below follow the last link

      Another good concept by you Frank. I did a similar thing with a Christmas poem and it was a huge success. I put my poet's cap on and try and come up with something suitable to add.

      Oh, cool, Frank! So we publish our own hub with our own poem as a continuation of your poem, then link your poem and those before us? I will try to come up with something, but let me know if I am straight on the rules here.

      Up and more, tweeting, pinning and sharing with HP in an attempt to get more to participate

      Enjoy your weekend,

    • Faith Reaper profile image

      Faith Reaper 3 years ago from southern USA

      What is going on with me is that I cannot get past a title for my hub lol, so I cannot even go further to write the hub and publish it. It is asking that I need to verify my permalink before I can even go further? Which I do not know what that means. I will ask a question about it.

      Hugs,

      HP would not let me publish mine, they say it is duplicated. And my verse is my own words not copied.

    • Jodah profile image

      John Hansen 3 years ago from Queensland Australia

      That's weird Shyron, I had the same thing happen with my hub 'Coffee in the Morning' but originally got it passed....not sure if they thought the poem was duplicated or some of the facts. Don't know how your verse for this was duplicated, unless when we copy the other hubber's previous verses before ours they class it as duplicate...maybe that's it.

He asked that I link it to my submission which I will be more than delighted to add him to my list of all who have contributed so far, but I wanted you to know that he and I both have a submitted our contributions. I am on my phone so I cannot link at the moment but I will do so after I arrive home. Blessings, Faith Reaper

      annart, it is in order as best as I know. except for the last one Jo/tobusiness wrote. I did not see any mention of that one in this comment section and just happened to see it in the news feed:

      tobusiness

      A Poem :The Charge Of The Light

      https://hubpages.com/literature/A-Poem-The-Charge-...

      I believe this one was written before mine, so it may be mixed up at the end of my list. The list I posted just above here is hard to read because it did not come out the way I typed it. but, if you just make a list of each link, starting from the top, it is in good order I believe.

      again thanks so much for continuing to feed this small piece.. annart, you know I thought I had it under control.. but this took off like wild fire and once Jodah lit the match I fell flat on my face.. I will pull it together and get some sort of order out of it, but I'm trying to read all who entered and will find them if they haven't sent me a link yet.. but it's but going so well I just let it continue to ride..:)

      Sorry, Frank, but I have been sharing all contributions with HubPages after each time I read one to encourage more participation. So if you need me to stop at this point I will? I noticed I have not seen Phyllis Doyle's contribution, so I need to read here as well. I did not realize phdast had participated until I followed shyrone's contribution. But as long as we do not follow our own, I guess that is fine as your rules state, then it is no big deal if we get a bit out of order. It has been fun reading all of the wonderful contributions. Off to read Phyllis' poem! Have a blessed day.

      Morning Frank, I love participating in challenges too, especially when they encourage us to write out of our normal genre of writing to stretch our writing abilities a bit. It is a pleasure to share with HP and everywhere all of the great poetry and it is good for each other to show support for all participating in a challenge. It is good for the HP community too. At least I believe so. Blessings.

      Hi Frank,

      I believe this one will go down in history as an epic poem for sure! I saw someone, who I do not follow, had published a contribution yesterday at lunch, but I ran out of time before I could read, share and let you know of her contribution. I will try to find her again. I happened to notice her under someone else's hub where they place other hubs in this topic. Oh, do you know if most placed their contribution under Contests and Hub Challenges or under Poetry? I started out under Contests and Challenges but then changed it to poetry. Just curious what topic are they publishing under.

      Have a great weekend!

      You are most welcome, Frank. Thank you for pulling all of us together to create an awesome epic poem.

      I wish there is some way you can publish it on HP -- but, it would be duplicate and not allowed, unless we all delete our poems. Maybe you can put the whole thing in an eBook and publish it on Amazon Kindle?

      If you need help compiling it, I will be honored to help and I am sure some of your other poets would help also.
