    New Board

    I was just wondering how much trouble it would be to add a board to the forum. I see a lot of non-political boards and was just wondering if it would be possible to add a poetry board? It could be a category added to philosophy or board all its own. It would give poets with a political bent or not an avenue to express themselves. Just asking.

    If we have a poetry board, we can have Haiku contests.

    I've reported this to the Mod Squad and let us kick it around a bit. Dave.

    @FindersKeepers "If we have a poetry board, we can have Haiku contests."

    I think this Haiku. Is it? I've never written a Haiku piece before. I know the basics but getting the syllable numbers and lines right, well let me try, here goes.

    You are a natural born Haiku writer. Wonderful!

    I once wrote a haiku spontaneously, as I was watching my home burn down. It was a surreal and humbling moment. I was watching the flames shoot from the roof causing beautiful glowing shadows on the nearby trees. I also was able to freely accept the situation, because nothing is ours. I love this Haiku. I have never forgotten it.
