This is a catch up round. Catch up rounds are designed to help new players or those who haven't won a game yet.
So you can not enter this round if you have won a round already.

The subject of this catch up round is..
Poetry!

I've been a poet for quite a few years and have created hundreds of poems.. I think it's an incredibly deep, meaningful and important art-form and I'll keep learning more about it until I die and then maybe in to the next life or lives as well.

For this round you can pick any subject you want, and do whatever sort of style of poetry you want as well. It could be funny or serious or weird or whatever.
It just has to essentially be poetry in one form or another. :)

Be creative, use your imagination. We're very open minded to people who think outside the box, if you're unsure.. I'd say just give it a go and try! Or you could possibly ask someone, we have a bunch of people in the IFC who are happy to help.. Though.. I'd suggest just do your best. :) We like unique and interesting entries!

And now a moment for our sponsors!

First up is @ats-david who has helped greatly! If you appreciate this contest or just his efforts in general you may want to look into voting for him as a witness at @ats-witness, he does a lot of other cool things for the community as well!

Next is @timcliff who has similarly helped out the contest significantly and who is also a witness who does a lot for the community, so likewise if you appreciate the efforts you may want to vote for him as witness also!

I'd also like to thank @theguruasia who has pledged at least 20 steem to the second and third place prizes and he said he may even donate more.

And @nxtblg who has been regularly resteeming and upvoting our challenges which has been a big help!

Plus one other person who has been helping a lot who deserves some credit is @soundlegion who has also been upvoting the contests regularly.

For this challenge.. If there's a tie.. We will do another round to see who wins.

The winner will be decided by whoever gets the most votes.
The only people who can vote in a qualifying sense are myself and the judges I've selected and we will vote by leaving a comment on the submission that we like the most and say something like.. "I vote for this one" and a reason why we voted would be good too, but is not mandatory.

You have until this challenges post payout ends to submit your post. Though we do accept late entries if you get it in before all the judges vote.

The challenge will finish after 7 days when the post ends and provides its payout cycle and unless there is a tie, the winner will gain the steem, the XP and have a point to go towards their long term win. (minus the 25% for curation)

Humm..I can not remember when it was I last thanked you, or if I have yet, so Thank you for the support you have been showing @apolymask and his IFC games. A lot of people have been having a lot of fun.

·
·

That's one of the reasons I'm glad to resteem them. Contests make Steemit fun, and it does take real effort to run one.

·

<3 I would hope it goes without saying at this point, but I'ma say it anyways! Thanks nxgblg! We very much appreciate your support, and I see someone else even mentioned so already! So it's definitely not just me. :) Cheers friend!

·
·

Thanks! It sure was nice to hear it from someone else.

Got it resteemed also. Some nice reading to do coming up.

·

Thanks bashadow! And yeah! Should be some good reading coming up soon! I love poetry so this should be a fun one for me especially. :)

·
·

Have you read any of @warpedpoetic's poetry? Some very good stuff, a very unique style. You should give him a read or two.

·
·
·

No I haven't.. I don't think so anyways.. But cool, thanks for the tip.. I'll make a note to check out his page when I get a chance. :)

Well, since this round is about poetry I absolutely have to try and rope @chrisroberts and @carrieallen into this because I'd love to see a limerick or two and another couple playing IFC :) Also, @jacksondavies might be interested in contributing a haiku to this round as well.

Let's see if the IFC finds them or if they will find the IFC.

·

Limericks would be fun! We rarely see those anymore.

·
·

You'll definitely like the posts by @chrisroberts who seems to be a natural with limericks! He always looks for suggestions and ideas for topics too, which I guess he uses to hone his skills :)

·
·
·

Thanks for telling me about @chrisroberts! I’m now following his feed. His limericks are a riot. Did you see the ones about the “corporate” retreat he had to attend? 😂 😂 😂

·
·
·
·

No I haven't, do you have a link? That guy could write his own biography in limericks :D Maybe that should be his next challenge? :)

·
·

Thanks for following, Laura! I've written at least a hundred limericks in the last eight months since joining Steemit. I have a bit of an obsession.

·

The more the merrier especially in regards to poetry in my opinion. :D I hope this round pulls in a few new faces whether they stick around or it's just for one round! :) Thanks for trying to notify more people plushzilla! :D You definitely have a well earned reputation for finding great people and talents here on steemit!

·

Thanks for the plug, @plushzilla!
I've been falling behind a bit on the limericks, but I'm sure they'll be flowing again any day.

·
·

I thought you were going to say any minute :D Over 100 limericks in eight months is more than 10 every month so at least 1 every 3 days! I am trying to do something similar with chiasmuses now starting with my own writing contest :)

·
·
·

Cool! Keep me posted; I'd be happy to participate. I haven't been entering enough contests lately. Work's been a little stressful, keeping me exhausted on my days off.

·
·
·
·

That corporate retreat you 'limericked' about sounded like a lot of fun :D @moneyinfant tells me that people will be scared away by the thought of a chiasmus, but I plan to prove otherwise:

another awesome one that I am happy to spread the word about @apolymask! It looks good and love your artwork! Keep up the great work and I'm happy to see the progression!

·

Thanks davemccoy! Glad to hear and I'll do my best! And we have numerous other amazing passionate people doing their best as well.. :) So I feel very positive about it all short and longterm! Also.. You know I was just thinking.. We're using your tags for newbieresteem and newbiegames, and we have mentioned your tags before in more detail, but.. I don't have it on every post like I should.. I'm going to make a note to give your tags a shout out every time we also mention our sponsors, I think that would be helpful for everyone involved! And I mean I know your tags aren't technically sponsors.. But, we are using your tags so we should definitely give you a mention more regularly like we do with the sponsors. I dunno why we haven't been doing that more regularly already, things have been a bit overwhelming I guess and it's hard to even keep up. But will try to continue to adjust and improve whenever it becomes clear. :)
I think thigns are a lot better around here with the advice you gave us! Both making things simpler and the sweet 16 ideas have been incredibly important!! Thanks so much again for your help!

·

After thinking about this for a while the other day I think we were already mentioning newbieresteem and newbiegames a while back, but for some reason I'm not seeing that on this post.. I think somewhere along the line I used an old template or something, I dunno. Weird. I'm overworked, too much information recently. I'll try to figure it out soon.

·
·

haha... no worries @apolymask! And I understand about being overworked, I miss my fair share of things too! Just keep doing your best and I'm sure everything will work out well!

I can't wait to read the poetry, so any topic of the author's choice? That is awesome!!!

·

Same here. :) I'm excited about this round. And yep. They can pick whatever subject they want. I'm curious to see how diverse it will be! :D

Woo hoo! The contest I’ve been waiting for...

·

Yay. :) Glad to see you excited about the challenge as well. I look forward to seeing your poetry! :D

OHH! So it's finally my time to rise and shine.

·

I am looking forward to reading your poetry!!! Good luck!

·

Haha, word. That's a great attitude! Looks like you have a lot of competition though! I see a bunch of people are eyeing this round with similar aspirations. :)

a poet after my own heart! I have been slacking in this championship over the last week or so - but I'm getting my sh*t together! lol round 21 here I come :) - trying to tackle 20 as well ;-)

·

:) I've been slacking a bit as well, and taking a break. Though.. I loved the poem you did for the occult challenge! Looking forward to seeing what you do this time as well, and also with the power spot one too! I wonder what your power spot will be like! :D Good luck friend!

·
·

ahh I just saw it! I'm going to have to get creative for the power up one as my instinctive answer would be spring in the woods but it's snowy here still.

I'm so glad you liked that one :) I love poetry so I'm psyched for this round! Everyone is a poet (I think)if only they tap into it - it's going to be so cool seeing the poetic side of everyone. I'm biased but not ashamed to say this will be my all time favorite round. Thanks for doing it!!

love the art

·

Glad to hear joey. By the way, I didn't forget about the other messages we were exchanging before. I do plan on trying to get back to them and responding, but.. I'm just overwhelmed with messages and can't really keep up very good anymore and my eyes have been giving me some issues recently so I'm trying to get out in nature more and stare at screens less. So.. I'm not ignoring you or anything like that, I'm just overwhelmed and it's hard to keep up with all of this sometimes.

Such a nice contest.All the talented people should take part in the competition.@upvote and resteem

This will help the latent talent to come under the light.Thank's for such initiative by @apolymask.

·

Thanks for you @laurawhite from your info about this contest before.

I was do with my best. Wish i have some worth

·
·

Thanks for playing along! The contests are a great way to get started here. The #informationfinding group is great. The contests are really creative and challenging:)

·
·
·

Yeah i think so ma'am.

·

This is a very interesting form of poetry that I would probably never know about if it was not for the IFC! Definitely not something that you can produce in a short amount of time and I like the background about the poem as well that gave it more context :) Plus you also got someone else to join the contest too - bonus points!

I am also thinking about participate in this contest.Thank's for the contest.@upvoted and resteemed

·

You should, the challenge is pretty fun, take a look at some of the round 18 entries, you will see we are really not that judgmental, just a bunch of people having a lot of fun. Sometimes serious, Round 19, and the water round, but even in the serious rounds we still manage to keep it light hearted.

My entry to round 21, I have included 2 poems in the entry but done it in one post. The poems are written in a manner to spell the persons name downward with the 1st letter of each line or paragraph to spell that name.

I am surprised that it is not a limerick, but I love to see original work on Steemit! What was the inspiration behind the poem?

@apolymask, this is my second entry that maybe become an interesting to for the other, especially for the @apolymask.
