Welcome Back To the Poetry Dice Challenge - #38~ The Poetic Cipher Revealed

This week it's all about creating a poetic code. Are you up for the challenge?

Your piece of the code will be revealed in shades of three phases: 1. Using the story prompt. 2. Choosing a vibrational number and use that number in your poem, 3. By choosing one of the dice rolls that compliments your poetic piece.

The first cipher of the day is... either you are on the outside looking in or you are all committed and within and to those that are of the latter... read the entire transmission below because this poetic cipher is getting ready to flow.

(1)Story Prompt

There were eight of them and they all entered alone one by one a few minutes apart

In the small dark room on the 11th floor of a hotel in an undisclosed location.

As they pulled off their disguises and got comfortable, they all gathered around the boardroom style table and began to discuss the state of cryptocurrency in digital markets.

The question before all of them was how do we improve the infrastructure of our decentralized systems and protocols to bring consumers and investors to our platforms.

They all agreed that they must find the code which is the formula to bring about a resurgence in the cryptocurrency market

They all agreed that the code was the missing piece and that this code went much farther than zeros and ones. But it was a code, a cipher that was both poetic and prose.

Within this Poetic Cipher Code, there were stories that were told about life, love, imagination, fantasy, and adventure.

And they knew that the only one that could lead them to the person or persons that knew the coded poetic formula would be the Poetic Curator Ren.

Ren was an extremely private person she traveled the world and rarely revealed her identity. It took them 11 months.

Now that Ren has been located she is sending a poetic invitation to the ones that she knows that have the Poetic Cipher Code in their possession. The way that the message is written will only attract those Poets that possess the rare and missing pieces of the code.

MY ENTRY------------------------------------------- i didnt want to delete the piece i created, so i posted it anyway... .

Don't worry about it @franciferrer you have done a great job with your post. Whether a few come or a lot I am still in it for the love of the game. And I am keeping it moving. And so should you. Have a Happy Happy Day! @franciferrer.


Maybe there will be a last minute rush :-)


Maybe we will see...


If it is a low entry don’t be disheartened Ren - these are fun and I’m sure the numbers will recover :-)


I'm not disheartened I don't go by numbers. I am happy and good regardless of the turnout. I am too busy in life to be otherwise. And life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
