Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Utopia
Amanda23

Beyond the vast horizon,
 1
there is a place unknown,
 2
where fairy's flutter amidst one another,
 3
And set an alluring tone.
 4
 
 
The nymphs dance with laughter,
 5
In the forests amongst the trees,
 6
Guiding gracious mermaids,
 7
to the never-ending seas.
 8
 
 
Plants stretch tall as towers,
 9
Inhabiting creatures unlike,
 10
beyond the vast horizon,
 11
In this utopia of auspicious life.
