So today (Sunday) is another one of my fill in days, and I want to celebrate one of the other things that drew me to Dreamwidth--the sheer creativity of dreamers. Crafters and creators of all kinds can find support and inspiration of all kinds in the communities here.

Creativity
reigns over our dreams. All sorts
of crafts and passions

find root in communes of shared
ideas. Collaboration

fertilizes seeds
of inspiration. Beauty
blossoms between us.

I'll be filling in for [personal profile] jjhunter and getting us started with today's seed. I'm posting early to be on the safe side (thunderstorms are likely later). I thought this would be a fitting topic for April's end since April is National Poetry Month. Additionally two of the first communities I got involved with are [community profile] poetry and [community profile] dreamwidth_haikai.

Poetry's month may
be ending, but the joy in
words thrives in us still.

What's in a name? self
user names synecdoche
for identity

like hats at royal weddings
joyful diversity reigns

sure, we had good times
and yes, you know part of me
still likes you, LJ

but I'm dating someone new
Dreamwidth and I, we've got spark

let sheep lie with goat
make love not war, all that jazz
I just need some space

all your new friends, you'll hardly
notice that I've gone away

me, bitter? never
bad breakup, maybe, but I
know we'll get through this

I'm in a better place now
be happy for me, okay?

I'll see you around
(hi Dreamwidth--are you ready?
dinner starts at six...)

such energy here!
people connecting left-right
asking, answering

making Dreamwidth a center
for words wonderful and life

three weeks just enough
for relaunching this grand dream
of community

take a breath, begin:
it's Monday morning, and I
will not resent it

the communal ritual
of taking pride in ourselves

in finding the good
in the week before is a
booster shot of grace

come one and come all
wordsmiths and dreamers, yes you
let's celebrate us

let's write of the culture here
why we came, what we hope for

what Dreamwidth means now
in stanzas five seven five
and seven seven

each day a new seed: comment
with a follow-up stanza

and you'll be entered
into a lottery for
two months of paid time

just once is enough, but best
beware: you might just get hooked!

in haikai haiku
alternates with stanzas of
seven and seven

I find that these longer lines
offer opportunity

to luxuriate
in loquaciousness and fall
in love with wordplay

but enough of poetry
proselytizing; I'm glad

that you shaped words here
that you are finding a place
that you let me know

Here there be Dreamwidth:
a small island in a sea
of words and passions

a place on a map of the
world wide web of planet Earth

itself in a sea
of stars, a tiny island
singing home home home

Winter dreams approach.
Felted snow edged with starlight
blankets a sleeping world.

Dreamers connect, words
dancing through the ether. Warmth
Spread through kinship found.

Our dreams carried wide,
sharing our deepest selves. Here
we thrive, dreams dancing.

those weekly updates
like letters from fictitious
Aunt Edna, the one

who circumnavigated
the world for a cup of tea

you never know when
she might drop by, but always
she brings some tidbits

something personal, something
marvelous, some business too

she's the CEO
of our dream ark, directing
the volunteer crews

singing praise song for coders
and latest in home design

showing us the maps
of what's to come, the places
being created

the embassies to
nations big and small, and the
history-writers

who chart our course in hindsight
who make us real in telling

she reminds us once
a week that community
is a joint effort

that people are there to help
that there's twitter when stuff breaks

that our suggestions
are wanted, and that we can
always unsubscribe

such letters are a pleasure
in an age of hidden news

First we are strangers
you intrigue me; I'd like to
read more: I'll subscribe

hello, acquaintance--I look
forward to our comment threads

it feels like we have
been friends forever; I grant
you access to mine

tread softly, for you comment
on my deepest, darkest dreams

a cut is a link
to hidden text: a layer
beneath casual

a choice: step in or skim by.
why this bold arrow pointing?

like a child we click
like magic the text appears
click again: it's gone!

words like ladders tumbling down
click again and they fall up

click again: step in
take off your shoes, settle in;
open yourself: expand

when you post public
you become part of the swell
of voices dreaming

dance in the tide, set loose your
imagination, put your

finger on the pulse
of dreamwidth and find that you
do not yearn alone

has a person attached
unique: just for you

this string of numbers, letters
a secret code saying yes

now is dreamwidth time
weeks of celebration and
long seasons of code

internet runs ticktock quick
instant reply: just add thought

time is broader here
continuity honored
via ritual

this: serenity
in a cup of coffee, and
communion in tea

you trust us with the refills
we trust you to run the store

we live more ourselves
the dream that is not a dream
real community

old-fashioned neighborhood joint
of a site; sit, take a seat
