      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.

      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.

Hi Tink,

 

Lost my last post - hope this comes through - all the different posts on this thread seem to link seamlessly - perhaps its just me being technically inept icon_redface.gif Anyway here it goes:

 

 

Your response describes the pic very clearly icon_smile.gif The lack of cover in the snow is brought out well.

Hi Aleksandra,

 

 

"life" making "streaks in the snow" is a good slant to the challenge in your response!

Hi Tony,

 

 

I like how you bring out the threat of the fox : "ominous shadow". And the advice in the last line, conveys that sense of the helplessness of the mouse.

That was my intention goldenlangur. I enjoy when I am bringing back the old " forgotten " nice things, back. I did once with one of poetry manifestation in my city, what it was so hard to do it, but I made it. So I love to bring some more attention here again, because this thread is nice and fun to work on.

 

Thank you for participation my friend. Your poem is wonderful, and it explains exactly what the photo shows.

 

Very powerful expressed.
