  1. Hi Jingle, sorry I didnt realise I hadnt nominated anyone last week, i get too confused easily!!!

    although is depressing I would like to enter Journeys End into this weeks rally

    its part of the My Struggle with Unemployment series & its an article that I would very much like people to read because this is an emotion that hits so many of us at some time during the period.

    I was at the unemployment offices yesterday talking about this and the clerk I was chatting to was saying she sees so many people hit this period when all seems lost!!!

    Anyway I digress, count me in with this entry.



      1. it is not over until Friday, or next Wednesday,
        we usually get things done by Friday!

        u r right,
        u need to nominate for week 19 award…
        my fault!

  2. I’ll be putting a rally poem up tomorrow, also visiting new faces this evening as always it’s good to read fresh work!

  3. Thank you so much for adding me —- you made my day… and it is still early ..

  6. hi Jingle & Rallying Poets! I have posted my poem, and my awards, and my perfect-poet nominee. Jingle can you just link to my page and not to the particular poem please? The poem will be at the top of the page, right under the awards as you asked, and i always hold off posting my Thursday photo/thought until late so it’s easy to see where my rally poem is. Thanks! Looking forward to reading everyone tonight & tomorrow! aka Celebrating A Year aka Marilynn ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi Jingle, this looks interesting.. and thank you for adding me to the list of new blogs to explore. What day of the week does the rally start on? and do you do it every week? Networking with other bloggers is fun! Perhaps it’s already too late this week? Look fwd to more contact with you

    warmest salad,


    1. It is not too late,
      today is only Wednesday…
      I host the poets Rally once a week,
      You can attend any time, no deadline, for Rally week 19, or this week,
      the deadline is next Wednesday…

      participants comment to let me know,
      visit 12 blogs,
      then they are done…
      I create awards for them,
      it is fun for most of them, it is a way to encourage people to write, read, and enjoy poetry…

      The date for this week is May 20-26,
      we start one day early and get the job done within 2 or 3 days…
      no obligations!

  8. Thanks for having me on your list of fresh poets this week. I really appreciate the exposure. Now, to get to work on something so that I might live up to my billing ๐Ÿ˜‰


  9. Ji,

    I wanted to present another offering. I took a reverse-Fib and mirrored it, creating a new poem in the process. I hope you like it.

    Night Fears

    When the dawn comes, all will be well
    no more need to hide
    darkness fades
    darkness fades
    no more need to hide
    When the dawn comes, all will be well

    You can find it here:

    Rhyme on!

  10. Hey Jingle my dear friend, count me in this week i have something light hearted to share, though i am rather busy today. tomorrow i should have time to go around and visit the other poets in fact i have already set aside the time, if you would please i would like to use, Lovers View for my poem this week the link to it is as follows.

    and my new website with a link to your web page though not fully finished is as follows, please fill free to check them both out and let me know what you think, YAY happy wensday soon to be thursday.

  11. I would like to nominate Adam for the Perfect Poet Award for week 19 Poet Rally. Sorry about being late doing this Jingle.

    Also I would like to thank everyone who nominated me for week 18. You are all too sweet and kind.

  12. hi ji, thank you for informing me- ok this week i will participate- hope that I am not too late.. also, i believe i needed to 1) visit/comment twelve fresh poets, 2) nominate a poet and 3) post a poem, 4) inform you when its done. did i fall short anywhere? just that i hv forgotten the rules after my irregular breaks being occupied with what nots! thanks again!

      1. tq jingle, do not know much about this nominating a poet thingy which i believe the honor goes to the previous weeks nominees/winners- am i correct? anyway, i wrote down the name of the poet of my choice in my post just in case… well, I have done my rounds! ^o^
        p.s. was also looking for your week 19 beautiful logo to paste on my poem- is there any? (wink!)

  13. I’m back Ji. The new Poets to explore were really interesting to read. The usual old Poets kept the flag burning. It’s a beautiful rally indeed. Cheers!

  14. Well my wonderful friend, I have visit many bloggers today as my husband and grandkids took their naps. I lost count but am sure I went over the amount you asked for. Had fun visiting those who I have wanted to visit but didn’t have time to spare, and those who I haven’t visit in awhile. But everyone I am sure understands I have to take care of my husband until he is back on his feet doing for himself. Well this is all I have time for today. God bless. Please send me a link to the two poems you said for me to pick up, they were at the bottom you said.

    Love Vi

  15. Hi Jingle – do I need to write a brand-new poem right now to be part of this week’s rally, or will my recent A couple of Villanelles be OK? So then I have to visit 12 new poetry blogs (on the list above) and comment? That would be a pleasure, I enjoy reading others’ work. Please let me know if this is correct


    Luke @ WordSalad

    1. no need to post new poem,
      but feel free to do your regular poem writing,
      and visit participants to stay connected….
      have fun!

  16. Hi Jingle – busy day ahead but will participate in the rally this week! Thanks again for putting my blog up as a new one to visit.
    Everyone: as my blog is still new, all posts are visible on page (if you scroll down); therefore I won’t recommend any one poem but just the blog itself:

    Jingle I will report back when I’ve visited and commented on at least 12! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Thank you for your kind comment on my poem, visited 12 participants today, id love to do that more often!! Cheers :D!
