Thursday Poets Rally Week 17 (May 6-12, 2010, Homecoming)

Hello, Everyone, How R U?

Welcome to Thursdays Poets’ Rally week 17-Thursday Poets’ Rally Homecoming Week

I would love to call week 17 “Thursday Poets’ Rally Homecoming Week”, because this week, 80% fresh poets are our most active and previous participants from our Rally. It is such a long list, I feel joyful and thankful because the longer my list is, the stronger our Rally is.

The purpose of doing poets homecoming is for our Rally members to spend time getting to know our own group members better. Many week 16 or week 15 participants may not know all of the week 11 or week 10 participants. It is important for us to support previous participants and give them an award for their willingness, time and efforts spent in writing poems and promoting poetry.

Rules to Participant:

#1: If you are a poet who is new and want to join our Thursday Poets’ Rally, post a poem in your own blog, and comment here with Your Poem link Included to let me know, I will add your on, visit 12 participants to fulfill the requirement.

#2: Pick 1-3 awards from this post and pass to12-15 poets of your choice in YOUR OWN Blog. Please feel free to award poets who are not in this list. (For those who never pass awards, you can take any of these awards you believe that you deserve and keep them.)

#3: Very important, please make sure to comment back to return compliment when you are given comments by other participants.

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

PS:Your link will NOT appear as participants UNLESS you commented below, I need your word of approval so that we have mutual understanding and respect upon this event. Thank U in Advance and Have FUN on the Rally!

  1. hi Jingle & thanks for including me. Having that break has really set me back but will be posting more stuff shortly (hopefully tomorrow). will let you have a choice one to use then…thanks again for support & awards. cheers Pete

  2. hi y’all! My weekly poem is up now for poets’ rally week 17, and for my blog, week 81.

    AND… I have an award for y’all up on my page as well. It’s for National Poetry Month, and I made it from a picture I took in April. The April Poetry Month Award is to celebrate all of you in this rally, that I have so enjoyed being part of since Jingle found my blog at the end of March.

    So feel free to download your award from my page, or comment on the post & I’ll email you a full-size version. Looking forward to reading y’all this week!

  3. Hi Jingle, last week I nominated moondustwriter for being a champion of poets but you know, there is one person who does all this & that is you, so can I nominate you this week? Not only do you organise all this but you write so pretty damn good stuff too!!! cheers Pete

    1. Yes, you can nominate me,

      Sweet Pie
      You ARE!

      1. as you called me a sweet pie (thinks thats a first!!) I would also like to nominate Trisha as well as yourself & Moondustwriter because, in all honesty, all three of you are doing a cracking job in supporting us poets!!!

  4. the list is growing faster than a vine on a wall and its utterly cool, all these special people under the one roof created lovingly by u makes my heart flutter xxx superb, im in as always and have posted your logo with a link xxx

  5. wow. that is some list…it may take me a day or two…lol. got no poem today, but dropped one on cherry cokes yesterday…will be chasing the rally though…

    It is always a pleasure to visit, and I love discovering new blogs, connect with like minded souls and commenting on such diverse pieces.
    I shall be away from tomorrow till the 10th of May for a hiking trip, so if you don’t hear from me, you know why.
    Have a beautiful week, and keep shining dear friend. :)

  7. Jingle….. I would like to leave the honor to you to select someone for me. :)
    I love all of the work you all do expressing your thoughts.
    Happy Happy…..

        “shooting stars” by A New Day was stunning

        “my two friends” by lynnlielovelaugh made me laugh really hard

        -bryan

    thanks Ji

  12. Have commented on all 21 other participants (not sure William’s went through– hard to see where to post there) & everyone who commented on me! I’ll look at some of the homecoming poets tomorrow. Lots of good work this week!

    xoxo

  16. im so sorry.. i feel so bad..i wasnt able to join :(

    today’s a friday
    and no.
    i dont have my thursday anymore

    its really awful ;'( :((

    i’d have to wait for another thursday..oh well…

  17. Jingle I would love to participate and thanks for your consideration but for Now I have been busy seeking employment since January…I am retired but need to go back to work to be around people once again as everyday I have many errands involved and really do not get back to my computer until 9:00 in the evening, sometimes a little earlier only to answer emails and comments on facebook and SKYPE friends overseas and Now a woman I met on facebook wants me to write for her magazine but I do not think I can do that either…sorry did not get back earlier…thanks just the same though..do enjoy your poetry as well..Happy Friday(+)
    Dom*:)

    1. Thanks for the award as well..you are such a loveable person and I am glad that you have considered me in the award process…I wish there was more time in the day even though I am retired it seems like the minute I get up I am always on the go…it was much easier when it was cold and snowing here in Upstate New York….I thank you though…enjoy and like I said Happy Friday Jingle!!!(+)
      Dom* aka soulbro*:)

  18. I dont deserve this Award Ji, I really dont…I will send you a private mail asap. I’m sorry I missed the rally but although its already past, I am still going to post something for it.
