Call For Thursday Poets’ Rally (Week 1: Jan. 14-Jan. 20, 2010)


Hello, How are you this evening?

I decide to make Thursdays The Poets’ Rally. The mission is to spend the whole day promoting and celebrating poetry.

Poets are unique creatures, we think and write, only in poetic and

musical or emotional form…We use the most powerful WORDS to express the most beautiful feelings, either it is sad, happy, or loving.

I have a list attached below, in this first week, I suggest that

#1: check to see if you are on the list or not, if you are a poet and not on the list, comment here and let me know, I will add your on.

#2: Post a poem in your own blog on Thursdays.

#3: Go ahead and visit the blogs on the list, please make sure to make a minimum 12 positive comments on 12 different blogs where you have never commented before.

#4: Very important, please make sure to comment back when you are given comments.

#5: After you post a poem, commented a minimum 12 blogs, let me know and you will remain on the list the following week as active poets.

You must post a poem on Thursday in your own blog, and have a minimum 12 visits to 12 new blogs done by next Thursday.

Isn’t it wonderful we poets stick together and pat each other on our shoulders and appreciate each others’ work?

Let’s go ahead and enjoy a feast of comments on our poems.

If I like you,

You may like me,

Why Don’t we form a poet family?

With a polite greeting from me

To you,

Won’t you agree

To say hello to me too?


LURK NO MORE! PLEASE COMMENT AND LET ME KNOW YOU ARE HERE. Let me know if you like my blog, also let me know if you have hints or suggestions on my posts…Thank YOU!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love poetry,
    Yes I do.
    So what should I write
    Just for you.
    I’m not too good
    At the drop of a hat
    Or I certainly would
    Take part in that!

  2. Oh, Jingle, I have already done a post that I’m going to automatically post at 6 am to honor my sis and my mom on the 14th (my mom would have been 79 on this day.)
    I’m really not a good poet anyway, especially compared to you!
    Continued success with your blog! You are a very sweet, smart person with a very sensitive heart . Glad I know you!!

    1. Do you want to try one?

      Find a poem you like,
      Change things around,
      then it is yours,
      that’s how you get started…

      Let me know if you want to participate. Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Vive La Resistance! No, really what a charming idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for including me in the list even though I am quite new!


    1. What a surprise,

      i will add you to the list and paint you orange. ๐Ÿ™‚
      It is my greatest joy to have you here, in my mind and heart, you are amazing artist, you rock!

      post a poem, no matter how you fell, people will encourage you along the way..

      I like your characters, Nicole! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi, Jessie:

      Nice to see you here.
      I changed you to orange, hope that you enjoy doing it, you have 7 days to finish 12 visits.

      Thank you for the response. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Just to clarify…we post a poem on our own blog? And do we have a few days to get in all the visiting? If yes to both questions, count me in! Great idea!

    1. Dear Jamie:

      Yes, post a poem on your own blog every Thursday, and you will have 7 days to meet the minimum requirement of 12 visits to 12 brand new blogs.

      I prefer to do it within one day,…you are busy, thus you can take your time.

      I painted your orange. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Have FUN.


      1. Hi J! I just visited 12 new-to-me blogs from your list and a couple that weren’t on it. Phew! Thank you for your poets’ rally, great to see new stuff!

        1. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

          Hi, Jamie:

          You Are The Best Poet of the week!
          I wish that everyone is lie you, I will place a happy face next to your link and mark you as

          โ€œmission completeโ€ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yay this sounds like a lot of fun! I’d like to participate, but I’m soo sorry, I’ve been so busy preparing for college. Do you mind adding me again next week on Thursday? I’ll be sure to participate then ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck to you all–I hope you’re enjoying yourselves!

    Rania Abuisnaineh

    1. Hi, Rania

      No problem, I will include all the links for 4 weeks, if they stay inactive for more than 4 weeks, I will drop their links and add fresh ones while keep active ones in the meantime.

      I do enjoy myself, thank you for letting me know. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Hello, ishabelle:

      I will include your link right away if you post a poem and let me know after you have done so.
      This is the beginning, I have some room or flexibilities.
      Welcome join in. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for letting me know.

  6. timidly, i request
    urgently, i beg
    permission, dear one
    to be included
    in this great scheme
    this grand design
    poetic reflections
    melding of foreign minds
    my heart spews forth nothing
    nothing but verse
    do you not believe?
    go yourself and see-

    1. Dear Sparrowsong;

      I could not find your link,
      to be included in this poets’ rally, you need to enter your link …

      I love your entry…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi Jingle,
    I will do as you said but I am no poet, darling?
    I will post a poem by Thursday and visit minimum 12 new blogs on YOUR BLOG LIST OR MINE? do we list the blogs we visit darling?

    please get back to me?


    1. Hi,

      Sorry for the misunderstanding.

      If you are not a poet, you can join in by posting a poem of your choice on your own blog on Thursdays.
      I suggest that you visit and comment on poetry blogs listed in MY blog.

      No, you do not need to give me the list you visited.
      simply let me know…I can see your comments when I visit those blogs in my list.

      You don’t have to do it if you have NO time or WILLINGNESS
      to do it.

      I am happy if you wanted to participate.
      after you have visited 12 blogs by Thursday this week, drop me a not here.

        1. Jingle, for you…i have done a bloglist in your honour….

          Jingle’s Thursday Poetsโ€™ Rally, i have listed the blogs that i have visited and commented.I did not keep count for it was really FUN!


    1. Hello,

      Yes, you are welcome to participate,
      I will add you to week 1 participant,
      and after you commented on 12 blogs, comment on my week 2 post, then I will add you as week 2 participant as well…
      Yippee, Jingle is excited about your partnership. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      see you later.

  8. Good to see all the participants who started this rally from the first week.
    Great to see the ones that are still here…I remember joining in the 11th week. Still a distance from now though. It is a beautiful community and I am loving it.
