      Registration -- to join PMO ***UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS***   03/14/2017

      Automatic registration has been disabled. If you would like to join the Poetry Magnum Opus online community, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page and follow these instructions: 1. Check your email (including your spam folder) in a timely fashion for a reply. 2. After you receive a reply, use the "Sign Up" link at the top right corner of the page to create your account. Do this fast. I've lost my patience with people who use the "Contact Us" link to express interest in joining and then don't bother to check their email for a reply and don't bother to join after registration has been enabled. The queue fills up fast with spammers, and I have to spend my time sifting through the rubbish to delete them. The window of opportunity for joining will be short. I will not have my time wasted. If you don't check your email and you don't bother registering promptly, you will find that registration has been disabled and your future requests to join may go ignored. /s/ Tony ___________________ [Registration will only be enabled for a short while from the time your message is received, so please check your email for a reply and register within 12 hours of using the "Contact Us" link. (Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see a reply to your message.)]

      Blogs   05/01/2017

      Blogs are now accessible to Guests. Guests may read and reply to blog entries. We'll see how this works out. If Guest participation becomes troublesome, I'll disable Guest access. Members are encouraged to make use of the PMO Members' Promotional Blog to promote their published works. Simply add your latest entry to the blog. Include relevant information (your name or screen name, poem title, periodical name, hyperlink to the site where published, etc). If you have a lot of them and feel you need your own blog, let me know, and I will try to accommodate you. Members are encouraged to continue also posting their promotional topics in the Promotions forum on the board itself which is better suited for archiving promotions.

Here are a few of my attempts at the American Sentence.
#1AS
White-haired man in grey tailored suit touches my cold fingers with warm hands.
#2AS
No moon to dull their sparkle, stars sweep Northern sky. Midnight from my deck.
#3AS
Crystal water soothes my prickly throat; clear plastic serves up thirst quencher.
#4AS
Smell of Lavender clings to my fingers, reminds me of my grandma.

I've known about this form for some time but finally got around to adding it to the Reference Section.  Badger's latest publication made me think of it.

Interesting Tink. I wasn't sure what the grey signified?

 :rolleyes: Grey was simply the color of his suit.  The situation was serious but not black and actually I was expecting a white coat which is why the color was mentioned at all.  

I found that this form leaves me wanting to say more.  As in the #4 I wanted to fit in "From the garden, the smell of Lavender clings to my fingers but it is the connection to my grandmother that conjures the emotion.  Rosemary also clings to my clothes after walking in the garden.  I love those scents.
