Howdy partner. I would have thought your first post would be a bit more poetic.
True, it was my original intent, however, I was unsure of the deposition of the chat so I went with the standard greeting one would make as a "noob". ;)
Why thank you my loquacious acquaintance.
Thank you very much, I am now finding these are a challange to make and it's now dawning on me on how much effort some people put into their stories, like some of yours, it's quite admirable.
that there is, I attempted to use items and variables but after reading a few tips the sight and some others provide, it still made my head spin, but I'm goint to keep persisting, because I know when I get it and do it for a while, it will seem childish that I couldn't understand it before.
I may need to do that, I want to make fun stories but I don't want it to be broken, a streamline interface and good story is what people want to read, and that is my goal.
I will be happy to share some of my poetry!
I thought you did well in the constructing of your peom. I was going to do a Shakespearean sonnet to open this chat, but, not knowing how you guys would respond to it, I went with more of a "noob" style of entry. And I really did enjoy your poem, not shitty in the slighest!!
I am still in disbelief that your introduction isn’t a poem. Also, try Love SICK by EndMaster. And Eternal. And Necromancer. In fact, read all of his stories and then become a member of his fanclub.
I shall grant you all this request then, my poem is an ode to a species of reptile that is near and dear to my heart, the humble turtle.
Ode to the Turtle Tiny Tim
My tiny turtle, you inspired me to love.
How I love the way you eat, walk, and laugh,
Remebering those who watch from above,
And those wanting to get your autograph.
Let me compare you to a nonmember?
You move more proudly, wisely and slowly.
Dense fogs hide the oceans of November,
And autumntime has the bravely rowley.
How does one love you? Let me show the ways.
I love your ancient eyes, fins and shell.
Thinking of your stubby fins fills my days.
My love for you is the stoic adele.
You must away Tim for you hold my heart,
Forget not these words whilst we're apart.
Hi Castor! ... Is that the same Timy Tim from the nursery rhyme; I knew a Tiny Turtle, his name was Tiny Tim, I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim? ^_^
Technically....yes. I named Timmy after the song so yes, he was.
Yey! Timmy is a good name for a turtle.
He was a galapagos tortoise, and I love oxymorons soooo
You're an oxy-moron!!! ... Sorry, I always feel an uncontrolable urge to yell that every time somebody uses the word oxymoron.
Lol, my friend is majoring in english and he despises it when my friends call him that.
Turtles laugh, but you just have to have ADHD or be on cocane (basicly the same thing) to hear it.
What typo? Shame on you for shaming me!
There was the typo, not bravely but brave rowley, his brother (I never though I was going to share this lol)
And it could be if you want it to be, but his fins were so short and funny they're worth mentioning more than once
And he died and I loved him so um, yeah, it makes sense
And thank you for your uh, critisisms? lol
Yeah, it's like cocaine, but worse!
Aaaaaah, I've read some of his stories, really good author.
Nice Shakespearean sonnet, and good use of tautologies, meter is not the traditional pentameter, though; and fact that each stanza has a varying meter, makes the synchrony a wee bit haywire.
We were making sonnets on nature in last week’s prompt, this would’ve been a nice addition since there are at least vague references to nature. Feel free to post this in that prompt too if you wish.
Thank you, and I was going for the iambic pentameter. But that was a poem I wrote when I just started writing, I just lost my turtle who was supposed to outlive me and I tried to write my grief out
Hm, could you bold the stressed syllables of the first line? Because I think I’m interpreting the meter wrong if you went for iambic pentameter.
This is how I interpreted it.
My tiny turtle, you inspired me to love.
Yeah that makes more sense then, this one is at least in iambic form. I always tend to confuse iamb(unstressed-stressed) with trochee(stressed-unstressed)
Yeah, it's iambic hexameter. That's cool too! Shakespeare does those a few times in his sonnets. They're sometimes called alexandrines in English.
You know, reading back on it, I really don't see the correct meter either, sorry about that. My counting skill must have failed me obviously.
