I really doubt I'll make it. Everyone else's are longer, a lot were very eloquent and lovely. Mine is trying to capture a moment of simple happiness, but it's short and looks lazy. ;_;

I admit this was very fun to join in on, though. I can't wait to see who the chosen are. :la:

Relax, mate. Length doesn't mean everything. I recently fav-ed a 3-line long writing. Being short doesn't mean not good. Have more faith and guts.

I tend to only write depressing poetry too... Hm... If I were to write something about a metaphorical bird leaving a cage is that depressing? Like if she were doing it to be what she wanted and not what everyone expected her to be?

How long? Can it be simple, short, and sweet, or would you like to have some meat to bite into?

I started writing an audition poem today, but I'm worried that it won't be upbeat enough. The theme is someone recovering from a mental illness, so it's a happy ending but covers some less happy ideas... is that too dark/depressing or do you think it will be ok?

If it's not I will leave it to the side for now and start on something else.

are we allowed to submit the poem to other groups as well, so long as it was first written for and added to "scratch that"?
