feeds all my free time
to Dreamwidth IRC chat

Bit, am I sane? -NO-

Dreamwidth IRC sneaks out
a scaly hand and grabs brain!


Dreamwidth IRC's
depths emit a sudden roar
as it expels yarn


(spontaneously appeared)
Bit, are there dreamsheep here? -YES-

now and then I read
on the Latest page someone
thanking an anon

out of the electron blue
came the paid account fairy

nobody knows what
ze looks like, where ze comes from
how ze chooses one

that is part of the magic
gift from none is gift from all

Filling in once again, and I wanted to explore [community profile] crowdfunding  in all its glory. Have you participated in any projects? Donated $5 for a poem and to help someone's diabetic cat? Led a crowdfunded project yourself? Only just heard of this glorious idea?

Now, slightly early - Saturday's 3W4DW haikai
:

crowdfunding abounds
we are poets in fishbowls
dreaming of you, I

show me your creations, babes
nursed by our community

no need to cater
to ersatz publishing trends;
celebrate ourselves

[personal profile] jjhunter
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

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

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

each invitation
has a person attached
unique: just for you

this string of numbers, letters
a secret code saying yes

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.

Tags, beautiful tags
everything just so in each
little Russian doll

Linnaeus would envy us;
his tag sky, joy forever
