Aduial I love the new title for the guild that you have picked out. I think it is perfect!<BR><BR>Violet I love your poem! I hope that you keep a journal of all your poetry. I do and I think it is a great way to keep the precious words that you have penned where you can get them published perhaps someday. I keep mine so that I can enjoy them again and again.<BR><BR>Thank you all for your wishes for a safe trip and lots of fun. I will do my best honestly.

I lvoe your poem Violet, is nice and different. It has wonderfull simplicity, yet deep meaning. I really like it. <BR>I have edited the beginning, so the please note that the title is now "The Twilight Guild". It is a lovely night here, and my birthday. I am going off to enjoy the lovely night, for I am working 12-close tomorrow, a ten hour shift. (groan) Have a nice night everyone!<BR>*Aduial*

To get your poems published, have any of you tried www.poetry.com? I submitted a few of my poems and have gotten them published and recorded on CDs. But you'd have to buy the books yourself, that is.<BR><BR>Sky

Violet- they can be anything or any length, except for the fact it must be under 20 lines.<BR><BR>Oh how much I have to write! My friends gave me a surprise birthday party and it was so awesome, ah I love them. Then they gave me a sleepover as well. At about 1:00 AM, we went outside and walked the dark paths of woods without light. the moon was clouded, but in a field we could see it vaguely. Thhis field, behind our school, is neat because it is completely surrounded by thick trees and secluded from everything. I completely let go of all conscious thought, and found myself twisting, twirling and dancing under the night sky like a meadow sprite. Then I laid down and felt as if my body had completely taken in and given itself up to the moon. At that moment, the wind blew on me and I swore I could have heard a strange sort of music within the wind. Oh how lovely the night is! I must go back to my family now, for another small party. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR>love,<BR>*Aduial*

Lo! I am Ariel Ilmarien, and how I love the dark hours of night, when the moon and stars come out to dance upon her velvet mantle. I love the soft cool breeze blowing through my hair, and the chirping of crikets amidsts the hoot and cries of noturnal creatures. How I love the moons ivory face reflected upon the lake, rippling like like drops of pearl, and how the sky above it scattered with thousands of tiny diamonds, a beautiful milky-white spray upon a shimmering tapestry of midnight blue! <BR><BR>Sigh, it is nightime right now at my little cottage on the lake, and I think I shall go marvel at her beauty!<BR><BR>Goodnight! Sleep well!<BR><BR>~Ilmarien

Merry meet Lady of the Stars, and welcome to the Twilight Guild!<BR>Thank you for joining us. You obviously do share the same view and love of the night hours <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I hope you like it here. A cottage on a lake? Oh thats sounds nice. Reflections of stars dance with ever ripple. Though I must say I am rather odd in this sense, I don't like lakes much, too much stuff growing for my liking. I have many a nightmare revolving around the dark dephs of lakes. And none with creatures or anything unnatureal, just all the plantlife in the bottom. I don't know why. But other than swimming, I admire their beauty and tranquility. '<BR>I shall add your name to the list shortly!<BR><BR>Last night it was raining, so I could not see the stars and moon, but the peaceful patter of rain upon my roof calmed me into a deep sleep. Its just as well, I was exaughsted last night from a 3 day birthday celebration! <BR><BR>That's a beautiful poem Liadan, it threw so many images into my head like a dream. <BR><BR>*Aduial*<BR><BR> <BR>

Thank you Violet, <BR>Whew, I haven't been here in a while. <BR>Yes, Violet i loved your poem as well, it's nice and simple but you really get your meaning across.<BR>Liadan, i loved your poem as well! <BR>Keep writing <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Poetry.com tends to publish a lot of people. Though I have a few thing s published through them. Although, someone I met this summer got a book of poetry published through a small publishing company when they were 18, so the same company is probably willing to give more young poets a chance. I will see if i can find that publisher for you. In the meantime, the book she published is "Talk to Me Like Autumn" by Rae Marcus, and I know these people are definately not a scam.<BR><BR><BR>Iavasel<BR><BR>edit<BR><BR>ok, the publishing company is Lightning Bug Press<BR>there is a website at <a target=new href="http://www.lightningbugpress.com">www.lightningbugpress.com</a>

Merry meet, StarIce. Welcome to the Twilight Guild! That is an awesome excerpt. You wrote that? Made me smile, that did <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I really loved it. Is it alright if I put that in the first post? (giving you credit of course!) I'm glad to have you with us.<BR><BR>Thank you all for my birthday wishes!<BR><BR>We are one guild that keeps growing and adding to our numbers, but no matter how many we are still so very differnt, yet alike at the same time. To be different than the rest, that is an aspect of the mysterious Twilight. Blessed be all those who dance in sight of the carven moon and benign stars! <BR>*Aduial*

'Lo my fellow Twilight Children! How fairs all this blessed eve? I hope indeed thou art well. Saddeness washes 'ore me as the claws of fall creep their way into the warm summer nights and introduce a sudden change throughout the world and the heart of a daughter of the night. Oh how I doth loath change, yet accept it I must with a wary mind, for change doth not settle well in my depths of heart but alas! come it must, come it may! <BR><BR><BR>Blessed Be and Merry Met!

It is Midnight here, but saddly the clouds do not waver to admit me even the scarcest glimpse of the wonderous stars... sad am I to say. Now that I have done it once, I greatly wish to be back out on that field to dance once more under the twilit sky. Now I feel locked within cruel walls that will not give way to a field so far off... Ah the complications of this wretched physical body! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> I dearly wish I had the ability to astrally project, to be free of these chains called reality for a moment. But alas, that gift has not been bestowed upon me yet. I shall continue to try.. perhaps one day.<BR><BR>Just a completely random question for everyone: what is your favorite color? Curious am I to know. violet/purple/lavender is mine <BR><BR>*Aduial*
