    We already got the Poem Of The Month up and running, even though we're lacking in votes.

    If anybody has any ideas in regards to helping out the the Realm and Poet Tree, please drop them.

    Well, I guess you're gonna have to hit him up to find out what's gonna be done.

    I was thinking about this but I'm not sure

    How about some of the poets from the realm get together and choose a different poet at random

    However many poets get together, that would be the number of questions each to be asked to whomever's picked.

    Sort of like the Spotlight but branching out, and it would be more interactive I guess.

    i really liked the poets spot light....
    what i think you should do is email a copy of the ?s to all the poets who post their emal adress and when they send it back filled out....just randomly select a poet out of the ones u recieve and post it....


    also i think that a mod should choose one poem a month or even one poetry topic a month where all the poets can have a open discussion/debate

    and i also liked the haiku.....

    and i also liked the write to this picture

    and i also liked when one person would start a poem off and the other poets could add on to it...


    mad love

    Acrostic Poetry CHALLENGE.. just a thought.

    Double Acrostic Poetry is an Idea..

    "Summers’ gifts of sensational feelings,
    Heaping happiness in poets’ path
    Awarding praises for poetic data
    Doses of episodes, where lived
    Original thoughts; orgasmic tempo
    Weavers of words; morning’s dew

    Prosing spewing from every lip
    Operetta unions, written in solo
    Energy of many, sharing love
    Tears touching every heart
    Rivalry forgotten, visions clear
    You and I spreading peace and joy"

    Learning vocabulary is an ongoing process and is an exercise that should go on throughout ones life. Having good vocabulary is important in sharpening a person’s self-expression. People can only relate in this world for the most part, can only relate to each other in two ways; verbally and physical. So having a solid vocabulary could be beneficial to you in everyday life.

    Starting at age of 4, most people on average knew under 6,000 words. By college our vocabulary should have grown to a little over 120,000 words. This means each year, going back to the age of 4 a person is capable of learning 3,000 to almost 7,000 new words a year. Simply put, the more you learn, the bigger your vocabulary gets.
    There are many ways to help build a stronger vocabulary. Reading is possibly the easiest way to go about doing so. It’s almost the only way you will come across words you haven’t heard or don’t know the definition to. The thought of reading may scare a lot of people away, but reading things that you have a interest in whether it be in sports, fashion, or just out of curiosity can be very useful in not just building vocabulary but learning other things you probably haven’t came across. It’s kind of like killing two birds with a single stone. Reading shouldn’t be limited to just class assignments.

    Also, you can try learning 3-5 words a day and try to use them whenever you’re conversing with somebody. Starting carrying a small dictionary/thesaurus with you and whenever you have an opportunity, open the book at random and find a new word to learn.

    Learning vocabulary can be most important to you once you enter college. You will have a lot of reading assignments, essays, reports, etc. It will be almost impossible to remember any information that is given to you if you hardly know any of the words and if you can’t remember any of the stuff how can you possibly understand the material that’s given to you?

    So with everything said, learning vocabulary is important in helping improve your education and learning capacity, which can be a major factor in how far you succeed in life.
