the final day of
the Three Weeks For Dreamwidth fest
is a special day

it's thank-a-volunteer day
remember-all-they-do day

spam? call anti-spam
abuse? Terms of Service team
help? the spr0ts are there

they document history
in Coalition Wiki

create dream design
make Dreamwidth accessible
beta changes too

they built the home we live in
one line of code at a time

if you've made this place
your own, if you love Dreamwidth
thank a volunteer

Open source dreaming
code ninjas build and maintain
shared ideas spark others

the whole becomes greater than
the parts. Home for free range thoughts.

Do electron sheep
dream of androids? Gentleness,
patience this social

creature is a great symbol
for our quiet dreaming home.

writing a few lines again

flex opposed—comments listen,
amplify, refute.

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

the ninja minions
of dreaming come to your aid
even on Fridays

even late at night when you
did not file a request yet

all it takes is a
post kept public showing up
on the Latest page

with tale of woe or sorrow
and a comment will arrive

so the legend goes-
when you are lost, they will guide
standard-bearers all

contained

[personal profile] jjhunter
it reminds me that
we're all dreaming together
creating this home

why are you here? (a question
that applies to more than sites)

what face do you show
when you can create yourself
what hats do you wear?

who is Dreamwidth? (studio
for making our voices heard)

sites blaring here, here
me, me your attention please
buy vote go time now!

visually distracting
I do not have spoons for this

guilt trip: 'need support'
can't do it without ca-ching
of all your page views

Dreamwidth is an oasis
no ads; never ever ads

I need my brain-space
my quiet place to write and read
I trust in that here

congratulations
Dreamwidth--you're an alpha now
you've graduated

oh! the places you'll go with
your code in your programs and

your users online
you can steer yourself any
direction you choose

and we'll be here in the Slumps
and the prickly perches

we'll be here when the
Waiting Places hit and you
hear the Tax-Men howl

Site, today's the day! It's time
you rose and danced on your way

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

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
