    Inspiration: the rain that rolled in this afternoon

    Skies grey
    Wind blows
    Clouds roll
    Thermometer lows

    Drops from heaven
    Falling down
    Thousands of them
    To the ground

    Flying midair
    Dancing around
    On a lake
    Joyful sound

    Skies bright
    Wind slows
    Sun is out
    Rainbow shows

    Project Revision Profile: Zesty

    See my profile picture? He was the first Fraggle I made up myself. It's an inspiration of various others. The way I see it, Fraggle colors have a specific pattern: One for hair and B'loovis, one for fur and tail, and one for the rest, skin presumably. It's a crucial factor for Sammy as she can turn into a Fraggle and back. I have come across some exceptions, but I'll discuss that later. Anyway, I knew that Zesty would be a good name for any Fraggle:

    Full name: Zesty Fraggle
    Colors: Blue, Orange, Lavender purple (Orange Clan)
    Dream: to go on adventures, and hopefully find his long-lost grandfather.

    And I so did not stop with Zesty...

    Very nice poem, Vincent. I really like the nature scenes you captured and the simplicity of it all.

    My one nitpick is that though I like the line "thermometer lows" for its descriptive(ish) elements, it just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the poem due to its high number of syllables. I'd have gone with something like "mercury lows"

    But overall, very nice.

    Thanks for the tip! I did have some problem with that line.

    Constructive criticism and tips. I love it!

    Heres a little something inspired by Casper David Friedrich's painting Wanderer above the Sea of Fog (Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer)

    Wandering in a sea
    A sea of nothing

    Watching a land
    A land of emptiness

    Thinking of a time
    A time of chaos

    Dreaming of a world
    A world yet to come

    Brilliant yet again! So much to love in that poem, from the wonderful idea to continue a thought between two lines to the prepositional phrases. Bravo!

    Project Revision Profile: Ira

    I once checked in Fraggle fanatic blogs concerning about what they wanted to see for the upcoming movie. Apparently, they were not thrilled about an idea to have a real human as a central character as it could damaged the integrity of the original Muppets. So, I figured Sammy would need to be with a new team of Fraggles, including one I named after a friend of my parents:

    Full Name: Ira Fraggle
    Colors: Brown, Gray, Simpson Yellow (Yellow Clan)
    Dream: to invent tools for the better of his home, the Tribe of Unity.

    He's really reluctant when his friends drag him into crazy adventures. As if it wasn't unfortunate enough, he has a rather strange roommate...

    Thinking about working on a different haiku:

    What is who I am?
    Unchanging or not?

    I'm considering starting a Blogger blog for all my poems. Still thinking out a name.
    A Touch of Gold
    A Flight of Stairs
  14. Hubert

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    YES! You should.

    As for naming, I'm the guy who had to look through Muppet books to find a suitable name for his blog...so I can't really help you there...
  15. Vincent L

    Vincent L Well-Known Member

    Here's my blog, A Touch of Gold.
    I'll still post my poems here.

    EDIT: my word, is that 30 view counts in 5 minutes?
  16. Hubert

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    Geez Vincent...you wanna give me any tips on how to inflate view counts? :p

    But yaay! So happy you decided to follow through. The design and set up looks great.
  17. Vincent L

    Vincent L Well-Known Member

    Geez, just refresh the page until your keyboard busts :p
    I wasn't expecting that number of view counts when I first started the blog. And I prefer a honest view count.

    EDIT: thanks for the Twitter share!

    Waves crashing in

    Gulls flying by

    Children running 'round

    Watching the scenery

    I'll note that I'll gradually post my previous poems onto my blog.

    Hmm...would you prefer us to write praise/reviews/critique in this thread or as a comment on the blog post?

    Project Revision Profile: Yale

    I was doing so well in making up my characters that I wanted to draw more Fraggles with different colors and features. Recap, Zesty's the one with the blue hair and jacket, Ira's the one with yellow skin and glasses, and this next guy wears an interesting shirt that matches his hat:

    Full Name: Yale Fraggle
    Colors: Black, Yellow, Red
    Dream: to become the next wizard for the Tribe. (The last one disappeared years ago)

    He used to wander around the world before making his home at the Fraggle Tribe of Unity. He's been though a lot in his former nomadic days, so he'll make an important contribution for his friends that would change everything...:wisdom:
