The CPC Thematic Attic Thursday Poetry

If you enjoy writing poetry and socializing, this is the site for you!

The “Creative Poetry Corral” began on MySpace in May of 2007 as a poetry collaboration site. (It moved to Friendbusrt in the Fall of 2010 when changes in MySpace blogging software made creative postings more difficult). The founder, "Lady 'Cheryl' Death," created an unique poetry collaboration process for her friends.

This collab or "share" is still the "flagship" CPC challenge, divided into a three-blog weekly process:

(1) "It's That Time Give Me One More Line" posts Monday evening. Here writers submit lines related to a featured weekly line, for others to use in their collab write. This remains open for additions through about 6 PM Eastern time on Wednesday.

(2) "Get Lost In The Lines With Me" is posted on Wednesday evening with the list of the week's lines from which to pick and edit in creating a collab poem.

(3) "Saturday Share," posted Friday evening and continuing through Saturday and beyond, is the place to post collab poems.

As the popularity of the "Cheryl's Poetry Collab Corral" grew, more poetry challenges were added, beginning with the "Simple Sunday Picture Challenge” featuring an artist's work for poetic inspiration.

Then came “Wonderful Wednesday,” originally designed to give various CPC Pals an opportunity to create and host their own poetry challenge.

“The CPC Meet & Greet” was (and still is) offered the first Wednesday of the month to introduce new writers to the other members of the poetry site.

On the last Wednesday each month, a “Pick-Apart-Poetry” game featured a poet from the past or present. Selections from their work were presented, from which CPC Pals are challenged to choose twenty-five words to arrange into their own new poetic expression. This quickly became a much-anticipated monthly event.

Eventually all of these venues became too much for Cheryl to manage alone. A few of the site regulars offered to take over creating and hosting individual challenges. The resulting increased flexibility led to the addition of three more weekly challenges:

“Magic Monday” explores amazing aspects of life and experience.

“Thematic Attic Thursday” sparks creative imagination with themes related to the past, present and future.

The "Friday Fling” challenges writers to try established poetry formats and sometimes to invent new ones, while writing on a specific designated weekly topic.

Now on Friendburst since the Fall iof 2010, a fully developed "Creative Poetry Corral" offers six different poetry challenges each week, providing both a creative and social site for people to be encouraged to create, socialize and enjoy.

DAILY CHALLENGES PRESENTED BY A TALENTED CREW OF HOSTS

Long time ago, goddesses concluded a pact with great Trees in the forest *** Since, they are one with them, guarding and protecting Nature so are the Dryads **** Have a sweet week end ♥

Il y a bien longtemps, des déesses ont conclu un pacte avec les grands Arbres de la forêt *** Depuis, elles sont en eux, gardant et protégeant la Nature ... ainsi sont les Dryades *** Passez un doux week end ♥

Love and be loved, the best wish we have in life ... some have known that, some still do, some will one day ... Beautiful Valentine's Day tomorrow to all, kisses and hugs from me to you ♥

Aimer et être aimé, le plus beau souhait de notre vie ... certains l'ont vécu, d'autres le vivent toujours, d'autres le vivront un jour ... Belle fête de la St Valentin demain à tous *** Bisous et câlins de tout coeur pour vous ♥

Today is grey and rain is coming ... perfect time for a walk on the moor ... maybe we can see the Lady living in these places ... for so long ... legend or reality ... it's up to you Smile Love ♥

Aujourd'hui il fait gris et la pluie arrive ... un temps parfait pour une promenade sur la lande ... peut être verrons nous la Dame qui vit en ces lieux ... depuis si longtemps ... légende ou réalité ... à vous de voir Smile Love ♥

Ocean in Winter is wilder, as it could live fully far from the crowded shores ... we just hear the sound of waves, the squealing of seagulls, and that is just wonderful ... Have a great new week dear friends ♥

L'Océan en Hiver est plus sauvage, comme s'il vivait pleinement, loin des rives surpeuplées ... on entend juste le bruit des vagues et le cri aigu des mouettes, et c'est tout simplement merveilleux ... Belle semaine chers amis ♥
