welcome, welcome all!
the neighborhood grows with you
here for the long now

no advertising, just us
we make it work together

give us your fannish
your queer, your n00bs and your old
your rootless masses

yearning to connect, to dream
to set down, and not to yield —

Dreamwidth welcomes you
pulls out a stool at the bar
lets you set the pace

gives you home to return to
on any internet street

wordsmiths, artists, all Dreamers

Come share my icons!
a digital fireside chat
Dreamwidth point goodies

banner of sunset clouds over water and island with 'three weeks for dreamwidth haikai' fest announcement superimposed on top

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!

When we speak of love
I dream of the little things
that people here do

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

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

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

Does the Red King dream
of looking-glass sheep? or do
such sheep dream of him?

asleep no fence can hold them
they step hoof in many worlds

although partisan
dyed-hard dreamsheep represent
pride without rancor

for such sheep flock together
not of a kind but a dream

a place of our own
to sing our words as we will
to be as we are

fear not that we be undone
disappeared not, erased not

dreamwidth fights for us
shields us from trolls under bridges
proves safe for our trust.

Monday is proud to
follow Friday; both times
to reflect, connect.

A weekly Monday pride thread is hosted by [personal profile] synecdochic.
Follow Friday is a popular Dreamwidth meme.
