      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.

Wierd I had to toggle this post after clicking quote in order for my response to not be included in the quote box. I think we may have to play with this feature a little.

Okay, I fixed Gatekeeper's post and then used the multi-quote feature to quote each of you. To fix Gatekeeper's post I had to use the editor toggle control to toggle to the simple/plain/code editor and then backspace to delete the second haiku. But before I did that, I selected and copied the second haiku in the Rich Text editor so I wouldn't lose it, because I noticed I was having trouble selecting and copying quoted text when using the simple editor. If you quote someone using the Rich Text Editor, you should place your cursor outside the blue quote box when typing your reply.

Four bask in the sun
four fish dwindle in the seas
Man's impacts measured

Braking on the curves

is better than "breaking bad,"

a staggering lapse.

 

 

 

 

 

These haiku are frustrating! :@ Edited this about sixteen times, and it's still not right!

I thought I would enter the soiree since it has been a long while since I did this shindig Haiku Tag on PMO...Hey I missed you guys....

 

A staggering lapse

​is a monumental truth

if you drink too much.
